### "Obliquity"

Quando escrevo sobre os objectivos que não podem, não devem, ser atingidos directamente, por exemplo aqui:

Parece que é disto, "obliquity" que estou a falar:
"Obliquity describes the process of achieving complex objectives indirectly.
.
In general, oblique approaches recognise that complex objectives tend to be imprecisely defined and contain many elements that are not necessarily or obviously compatible with each other, and that we learn about the nature of the objectives and the means of achieving them during a process of experiment and discovery. Oblique approaches often step backwards to move forwards.
...
The most profitable businesses are not the most profit-oriented."
