The importance of discarding unworkable projects (Part 5 of 8)


The advent of the internet and low-cost mobile communications show the scope of change that we can expect to see within a generation.

Repetitive tasks can now be carried out in a faster and cheaper manner. Some business sectors have been favourably affected; others have become obsolete. In addition, the web has extraordinarily facilitated the spread of knowledge.

A wise man establishes his goals according to reason.

High ambitions are commendable, but grandiosity should be avoided. Persistence is necessary, but it should not turn into obsession. Attempts at improving the world will remain fruitless if they are not accompanied by a sound dose of realism.

To be continued in the next post.
