Power: What is it? But more importantly how do we know when we have got it? Power is an organised effort, and organised knowledge.
Success: What defines it? How do we know we have come to victory? Success is the ability to obtain power to get what you want, but without interfering with the rights of others.
Avoidance: It is the sign of fear of failure, so to avoid is to mean to fear… to fail? Would you risk this without trying first?
Business analysts are paid to think. Thinking is the force of habit that defines us and the quality of the decisions we make. If the numbers from Thomas Edison are anything to go by, our ability to think through situations should never be taken for granted.
Critical thinking is an extremely important quality that should be nurtured, refined and actively applied to every decision we make.
“Five percent of the people think; Ten percent of the people think they think; and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.”
― Thomas A. Edison
