If you bounce a ball in front of a worm navigating a flat surface, the worm will see a horizontal line growing in both directions momentarily – and then disappearing, without any explanation that the worm would find plausible.

When you have a health problem, do you see a specialist?

When you have a health problem, you see a specialist. You don’t ask “Hey, you don’t have diabetes, how can you tell me what to do?” When you have a legal problem, you see a lawyer. You do not ask the lawyer if he has ever been divorced or – better – had a felony […]

“Lean” is to Businesses as “Weight Watchers” is to Individuals

“Lean” is to Businesses as “Weight Watchers” is to Individuals

Ever noticed that Lean is very similar to Weight Watchers? Both promise the moon, have a cult-like following – and both fail to deliver sustainable results in most cases. Did you know “repeat customers” are a mainstay of the Weight Watchers’ strategy? The Lean approach is not much different. Other popular fad diets to compare: AGILE = […]
