Lightning

Blink. I don’t mean the actual reflex of winking or batting the eyelid – I mean Blink… Malcolm Gladwell’s book I referenced last week in the discussion– http://www.gladwell.com/blink/.

Follow the thread. How do you know what’s right or not – forget about wrong –when you look at ideas or data? When you have to make decisions based on limited information or insufficient data points? As I pondered this I came across the following quote from one of my favorite sources;

The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.
Mark Twain

And there you have it. We should strive for lightning in our lives – personal and business – lightning bugs are a wonder but they are for kids to chase and catch on hot, boring summer nights…lightning is majestic; awesome and has a touch of danger…go for the lightning.
