And another thing...
« on: July 11, 2021, 09:46:53 PM »

The height of the pandemic left me with reading time and one of the books I re-read was Tony Kern's "Blue Threat - To Err Is Inhuman".  From that, Blue Threat Proverb #9:

"It's hard to fight an enemy that has outposts in your head."

Dr. Kern explained in a presentation:  "Bad habits of thought are even more dangerous than had habits of behavior, as they continuously block objective thinking and form an almost impenetrable barrier to reflective accountability.  Learning to identify these negative thought patterns is not easy, but well worth the effort and will rapidly open vast new horizons to improvement."

Carry on.

Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something."  - Kurt Vonnegut

Sounds like a good book.  Certainly something I will plan to read.

Space isn't the final frontier. The mind is.
I think it was Jung who came up with that idea.

Carry on.

This book is sitting on my desk right now! I started it after picking up another of your Kern recommendations, "The Deliberate Practice of Professionalism". The author suggested that the correct order is to read Blue Threat first. It is a challenging book, and I find that reading in small chunks and reflecting on them for a while is best for me. I always enjoy your reading suggestions.

Now back to work!
