no cheap tickets

Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media. I call these Friday’s Finds.

“There are no cheap tickets to mastery. You have to work at it, whether that means rigorously analysing a system or rigorously casting off your own paradigms and throwing yourself into the humility of not knowing”Donella Meadows

“Any method that starts by asking you to imagine an ideal future is deeply suspect from a complexity perspective. Far too likely to give an excuse to avoid the reality of the present.”@snowded

“As Socrates showed us, there exist few quicker ways to make enemies than to ask the right questions of those vested in the wrong answers.”@MattPirkowski

“If everyone did their best, 95% of problems would remain.”W. Edwards Deming

“Don’t attribute to stupidity what can be explained by incentives.”Mike Elias
