Situational awareness is the ability to observe your surroundings and make detailed assessments about your environment. One aspect of SemperVerus living is learning to hone your powers of observation in all areas of your life.
Situational awareness is another word for mindfulness: being more cognizant of what’s going on around you and being more present in your daily activities, which in turn helps you make better decisions all around.
Observe + Orient = Situational Awareness

The OODA Loop is a learning system and decision-making process first explained by Air Force fighter pilot and military strategist John Boyd. The four steps of the OODA Loop are Observe, Orient, Decide, Act. In a head-to-head competition, like air-to-air combat or a violent confrontation in a parking lot, the person who can cycle through the OODA Loop the fastest has the advantage.
Orientation tells us what we should look for when we’re observing, and then puts those observations into context so we know what to do with the information.
