Thinking and acting

Acting on a good idea is better than just having a good idea.


Wishes and desires

A wish is a desire without an attempt.


Wise and fool man

A wise man has something to say, a fool has to say something.


Wise man, enemies and friends

A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends.


Ending relationships (business and non)

An anonymous, reported by Ilead365 ( spends some words on necessity to use lists in order to understand the need to close a relationship.

The situation is discussed for personal relations, but some of the thoughts apply also for business relationships.

The starting point is reflecting on when (and why and how) people are morelikely to end a relationship (on an average, the frequency is definitely higher after a holiday).

The suggestion is to write down a list of pros and cons to understand the real situation.

Of course is a method like others, but it has some problems because is strictly linked to  a ptoblem of these days: fast pace.

The reason for braking a relationship more frequently after a holiday is because in these moments you’re forced to take a rest from fast paced life and real thoughts emerge.

I think we cannot make a rational decision for something not rational (because leaving a business or a company or a person is not rational at full).

And jotting down pros and cons is a way to put your mind in a standby for a while to think and understand the situation.

Think and then do is the key.

Statistics and reality

A statistician is a person who draws a mathematically precise line from an unwarranted assumption to a forgone conclusion.


Guns and aces

A “Smith & Wesson” beats four aces.


Liberals, conservatives and communists

A liberal is someone too poor to be conservative, and too rich to be a communist.


Fools and reason

A fool must now and then be right by chance.


Fail safe circuits

A fail-safe circuit will destroy all others.
