Bertrand Russel..

"A stupid man's report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand.

From Peter Russel's web site..

There are only two ways to live your life:
as though nothing is a miracle,
or as though everything is a miracle.

Albert Einstein

Enlightenment for a wave is the moment the wave realizes that it is water.
At that moment, all fear of death disappears.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.

What Success is all about...

"Aim for success not perfection... Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make you a far happier and more productive person. "

Simple solutions work...

For each and every problem there are many solutions but select which is
simple, safe less cost and easy to understand

Case 1
When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that
the pens wouldn't work at zero gravity (ink won't flow down to the
writing surface). To solve this problem, it took them one decade and $12
million. They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down,
underwater, in practically any surface including crystal and in a
temperature range from below freezing to over 300 degrees C.

And what did the Russians do...??
They used a pencil.

Case 2

One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was the
case of the empty soap box, which happened in one of Japan's biggest
cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer
had bought a soap box that was empty. Immediately the authorities
isolated the problem to the assembly line, which transported all the
packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department. For some reason,
one soap box went through the assembly line empty. Management asked its
engineers to solve the problem.

Post-haste, the engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with
high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soap
boxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty. No
doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they spent a whoopee
amount to do so.

But when a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed with the
same problem, he did not get into complications of X-rays, etc., but
instead came out with another solution. He bought a strong industrial
electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan
on, and as each soap box passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes
out of the line.

Always look for simple solutions.
Devise the simplest possible solution that solves the problem
