I'm so tired of child prodigy stories, breakthroughs and paradigm shifts. Typical: "Don't Diss The Paradigm Shift In Management: It's Happening!" (Steve Denning) http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevedenning/2012/10/31/dont-diss-the-paradigm-shift-in-management/
Scientific American perfectly described what Steve Denning was blathering about in this critique of Thomas Kuhn http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/kuhn/
"The Structure of Scientific Revolutions has sold 1.4 million copies and the overused 'paradigm shift' has attained the status of effete cliché in countless, numbing business conference PowerPoints."

warns about an analogous trend in the sciences, mathematics and other analytical fields of study.
"What happens when we misjudge the scientific process, when we underestimate it? The oversimplification of discovery makes science appear far less rich and complex than it really is... To be productive, we need to dip below the surface and grapple with underlying issues. The myths can seduce one into believing there is an easier path, one that doesn’t require such hard work."
Do not succumb to the Eureka Myth!
