OODA Loop and Trading......

I was reading Dr.Steenbarger's article on 'Trading as Mental Warefare' www.brettsteenbarger.com/Trading as Mental Warfare.doc . This article is very interesting. It goes into Col Boyd's presentation....also available at www.dnipogo.org/boyd/patterns.ppt .

The article goes into Sun Tzu's Art of War and there are parallel's to Trading too. It also mentions OODA loop((for observe, orient, decide, and act) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OODA_loop . I was first introduced to this techniqies by a friend who was taught about it in MBA class. It has been on back of my mind ever since.

I was looking into different techniques to integrate and process information ( a way to think that is more effective to the unique fast paced environment like trading). The other one I am looking into is to organize information using Mind Maps Mind map - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia . A trading plan that is in a fluid state as a mind map may be more suitable for trading ( just a thought ...need more experience before I state it as a fact).

But these 2 techniques seem promising. I do not know how to act upon OODA loop ( any practical books etc) . However I did buy books on Mind mapping. Did anyone get a chance to look into these techniques ( or similar approaches). Please share your thoughts and experiences.
