October 15, 2009


Trying to identify a subject for the blog, in the way to give it a lane of knowledge, I found a booklet that say in the front “QUESTIONING EVERITHING”, so I pick up one, read it and I got an idea for my first blog entry.

7 or 8 years ago, one of my undergraduate studies professor, told us that “As Engineers you are obligated to Questioning Everything all time. If it works, break it”. I liked so much that sentence, and since that moment I had been trying to apply it in my jobs. The problem was that it is not a standard rule to question the others work. You have to build a very flexible method, supplied in your own experience and learning from other people experience. I know that you are not against the peoples job, you are trying to improve the process. It is funny because when you think you have a method to implement that, comes a bad situation and crash your method.

The question is not if you have to apply the “QUESTIONING EVERYTHING” issue, the question is “Please, tell me the way that you successfully apply it”, or just your experience trying to implement an improvement process in your career life.
