According to a quote attributed to Henry Ford, “Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few people engage in it”. Thinking is hard work. Our human wiring causes us to be preloaded with biases and preferences that encourage us to take short cuts when it comes to rigourous thinking. I recently noticed that many of us, including many people who should know better (including myself), have a tendency to take the easy way out when thinking about tough issues.
This is a management blog based on rigourous research and practical application to real world business problems. It covers leadership, strategy, marketing, self-management, organizational behaviour, and teaching & learning. My objectives are to publish clear, concise and correct posts and to publish once a week (although to be honest, this might not always happen).
This blog isn’t intended to provide great pronouncements or judgments. This is because I don’t know more than I know. But I truly love to think, question and talk (not necessarily in that order). I enjoy debating and sharing ideas. And so, this is the beginning of my personal effort to engage — both myself and others in the joy of thinking.
