Mishkin, I agree that it is hard for diagrams to show the dynamism in these processes. Our thinking processes combine reflection, analysis, decision, reorientation, all at the same time. So a linear design, even if it is a loop, really doesn't capture it as well as it should.
Yes, I think it was Einstein.

Ed, thanks for the link! I also noticed the consistency of the reflection part (and of course the action part too, but the diagram doesn't reflect it as well since I wanted to be true to the order in which the steps are stated in their original sources). I believe it was Einstein who said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the results to change.
