Ninety percent of everything
is crap. Theodore Sturgeon, American - Writer February 26, 1918 - May 8, 1985 https://www.britannica.com/biography/Theodore-Sturgeon
An interesting way of seeing it, but when you are really honest, how often do you think the same in the office 😉. We once had a saying in a previous job - "If it is not complex enough, it cannot be a plan", what goes in the same direction. A lot of people tend to make things complex, to reduce the number of guys who can really follow the content or just to scare off the majority right at the beginning. Makes any further discussion much easier.
For me the true greatness of people is when they are able to describe complex topics simple and not the other way round. KISS - "Keep It Simple, Stupid." http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/KISS-principle.html
Even better when these guys are applying Common sense as well 😉.
The three great essentials to achieve anything worth while are: Hard work, Stick-to-itiveness, and Common sense. Thomas A. Edison, American - Inventor February 11, 1847 - October 18, 1931
I am at the airport waiting for my flight home to Duesseldorf, so far still everything on-time, but delays are announced just 15 minutes before boarding, to keep the passengers positive and motivated - it is working 👍. Looking forward to the FIFA World Cup final on Sunday, France vs. Croatia will be an interesting game. Found an article that fits:
