Avoid work

Equipment

The best equipment for your work is, of course, the most expensive.


Daily mumble: Thinking about

Sometimes I look around myself and think of how much effort I put into my work (well payed or not it’s not the matter) just to cover the inefficiencies of others.

People simply “stay” in the office, don’t think of working for an objective or to do things well.

Is not a matter of working for living, or living for working: is a matter of caring of something bigger than yourself.

 


Man and computer

Man is the best computer we can put aboard a spacecraft … and the only one that can be mass produced with unskilled labor.

Work and timing

Anyone can do any amount of work provided it isn’t the work he is supposed to be doing at the moment.

Sharing working life experiences

Hi everybody.

Have you experienced a moment in your working life you would like to share (either good, bad or funny)?

This is the place, by replying at this post.

I start with mine.

I was in a very well known consulting company and we were working on our internal accounting systems conversion from Italian Liras to Euro.

My former partner on the project asked me for a couple of months every day the exchange rate from lira to euro and I repeated every day: 1 euro is 1936.27 liras.

After the second month he said to me: “I’m happy because as we transitioned to euro we gained in stability: the exchange rate never changes!” 🙂


Mind and parachutes

The mind is like a parachute, it works better when it’s open.

Amount of work

Don’t tell me how hard you work.  Tell me how much you get done.
