Being a Socialist

Well, I don't believe in equal distribution of wealth...but these days I often wish the world would have been easier to live in had God been a socialist and there was an equal distribution of intelligence among human beings...It is just impossible to drive sense into a thick skull :( ... The negotiations, hand holding and patience required to get results out of people who refuse to use their brains cause such a colossal waste of time, energy and resources...

At times, I keep reducing my speed of thoughts and ideas to match the others...so as to reach an agreeable solution...but sometimes it is just very very frustrating...You feel that your own brain will lose its sharpness due to lack of use...

I wonder how by reducing the speed of thoughts and ideas (to match others?), you get to an agreeable solution?

I thought agreement is on the virtue of the idea not on the speed at which it is generated.

Also,

It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.

Move out. Be in a place where your mind works forwards rather than backwards.

@anon: well, if the other person refuses to think, and spend some effort in understanding a difficult concept, then you try and keep reducing the complexity (and consequently the efficiency) of a solution...essentially if the others don't do their homework, then reducing the speed of your ideas is the best way to reach an agreement..you get agreement on 10 points in the time taken for 1, had they also been prepared and using their brain rather than be lazy....
well, when you are working against tight deadlines and are trying to take your team with you...speed of ideas is equally or most often even more important than the virtue of the idea...'cos you are not looking for the one perfect idea...rather you look for quic solutions that can further be refined...

I agree with your first quote...the only problem is...in the situation I am in, the people involved, doesn't speak anything even if I am willing to listen Basically they just don't use their brains to generate any ideas...or even find faults with the others' ideas...

In plain simple terms I am talking about the difference between mediocrity and excellence...and yes, I believe I belong to the latter group...Maybe you mistake that for being too sure of my wisdom... :P.

BTW, your style reminds me of a well read lady in blogosphere I know.r u who I think u r????

@alex: mmm, I am trying to be innovative and find newer ways to keep my mind sharp...:)
