Circular Causality

CIrcular causality is haunting us everywhere. It is one of the main reasons why “soft” things are so hard to change. To understand the concept is not difficult, to see it happening in daily experience much more so. So let’s just play with it for two minutes:

Complete the following sentence:

This sentence has … letters.

What determined what?
What changes would lead to different results?
Will there always be a solution if you make changes to the sentence before completing it?

What makes it a little mind boggling and do you see similar things in your projects?
