As the playwright George Bernard Shaw once put it - The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

To encapsulate this, I often think of Henry Ford’s famous quote :)

'If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse.'

Read somewhere - If you have a new idea, and it's disruptive and you're agreeable, but worry about hurting people's feelings and disturbing the social structure, then you're not going to put your ideas forward.

Here's mine, anyway :)

Indeed, If you aren't being told 'no' enough times, you're not pushing yourself hard enough.

I love this saying from motivational speaker Zig Ziggler 'No matter how you feel ... get up, show up and Never Give Up!' (especially today) :)

Happy St. Valentine's Day!

~ Book Review ~

Charles Duhigg, an investigative reporter for The New York Times, accomplishes what few books are able to do with his "The Power of Habit". The book educates (it's a serious look at the science of habit formation and change) while also entertains (filled with incredible stories). It's thoroughly enjoyable and provides many 'ah ha' moments.

The book covers a wide spectrum from explaining how habits are formed and how the bad ones can be broken, to how information on habits can be used in marketing, management, and social movements.

Besides the compelling stories, Duhigg also provides the prescription to change a bad habit. He explains how habits are formed by a cycle of a cue that triggers some behavior (good or bad), then a reward, and then a craving develops to drive a loop of repetitive behavior.

You have a happy reading. As for myself, finished in two seatings :)

Why? Because when business solves a problem, it makes a profit — which lets that solution grow.

happy doing business :)
Why do we turn to nonprofits, NGOs and governments to solve society's biggest problems? Michael Porter admits he's biased, as a business school professor, but he wants you to hear his case for letting business try to solve massive problems like climate change and access to water. Why? Because when business solves a problem, it makes a profit -- which lets that solution grow.

~ Book Review ~

"David has nothing to lose, and because he has nothing to lose, he has the freedom to thumb his nose at the rules set by others. That's how people with brains a little bit different from the rest of ours get jobs done."

In David and Goliath, author Malcolm Gladwell looks at how the 'Davids' of the world may actually have an advantage over the Goliaths.

I always look forward to the next work by Gladwell and he has yet to disappoint. David and Goliath is just the next work to challenge convention, educate the mind, and entertain the soul.

Happy Reading!
