"Steel with Pride" ...

It is a great day today. Thanks to Markus for giving the 1st comment in my BLOG since I opened this functionality in late November 2016. And I had the 2nd interview for a very interesting position today and it did go pretty well, as far as I can judge it from my point of view. I will hear more early next week.

"Steel with Pride" was one of the guiding principles of a former CIO of mine. You do not have to reinvent the wheel everytime, especially when you are surrounded by smart people. Use the wisdom of the crowds (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wisdom_of_Crowds), a swarm intelligence, similar to what is happening in crowd funding and crowd sourcing. Exactly this is what I find in the new Tim Ferriss book Tools of Titans (https://toolsoftitans.com/). Great reading experience and everybody will definitely find something to take away and to reuse for the future. 

On the left a picture of page 375 in the paragraph about Peter Diamandis (http://www.diamandis.com/about/) that I did read this morning. Simple and easy rules, I like this a lot. Do not make it more complex as it should be 😉. Just one example of the great content of the Tools of Titans book --> and as I said earlier Steel with Pride and Use the wisdom of the crowds. And in this case it is even a crowd of billionaires, icons, and world-class performers.

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing. Socrates
