Every person remembers some moment in their life where they witnessed some injustice, big or small, and looked away because the consequences of intervening seemed too intimidating. But there's a limit to the amount of incivility and inequality and inhumanity that each individual can tolerate. I crossed that line. And I'm no longer alone. -- Edward Snowden, American - Activist Born: June 21, 1983,  https://edwardsnowden.com/ 

Good mindset of Edward and an urgent topic for the G7 summit in Biarritz, France this weekend, because this is not just a Brazil internal issue, it has influence on everybody in the world  https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/aug/23/ireland-could-oppose-trade-deal-brazil-fails-stop-amazon-fires-leo-varadkar 

Coming back to the average topic from yesterday and the "famous" number 5. There is a common saying that in a team of 5 people one is a complete failure and the other 4 have to give 125% to cover for the team mate. I assume you have an example for this as well? 😉 If you need one, think about Dilbert's colleague Wallyhttps://dilbert.com/strip/2019-07-01 

And with respect to different characters and approaches in the work place, large projects are a rich source 🙃. We have the guys who are just doing their work as always or exceeding expectations -- then the ones who are not willing, interested, capable or motivated to support, depending on e.g. their age, current career level or past experience -- finally the poser category, looking for a promotion and using the project as springboard for their next career step. You know, what I mean?

“The person who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The person who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever seen before.” -- Albert Einstein https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/physics/1921/einstein/biographical/
