Go Corona

Unarguably, it is a serious challenge for all the human being acorss the globe. But ‘the only thing we have to fear is the fear itself.’

Here are some statements from the book Jordan B. Peterson 12 Rules for life that I’ve found inspiring. (My friend recently told me that the author is seriously ill and treated in Russia for addiction withdrawal. It’s not his fault. He was addicted to powerful prescription drugs that meant to calm his anxiety when his wife was dying for cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with him. Mental health and physical health are REAL THINGS.)

Tell the truth.
Pay attention.
Be precise in your speech.
Do not do things that you hate.
Nothing well done is insignificant.
Be grateful in spite of your suffering.
Dress like the person you want to be.
Maintain your connections with people.
Be careful who you share bad news with.
Be careful who you share good news with.
Read something written by someone great.
Stand up straight with your shoulders back.
Pet a cat when you encounter one on the street.
Pursue what is meaningful not what is expedient.
Don’t bother children when they’re skateboarding.
Act so that you can tell the truth about how you act.
Make friends with people who want the best for you.
Do not allow yourself to become arrogant or resentful.
Make at least one thing better every single place you go.
Don’t avoid something frightening if it stands in your way.
Try to make one room in your house as beautiful as possible.
Set your house in perfect order before you criticize the world.
Do not try to rescue someone who does not want to be rescued.
Imagine who you could be, and then aim single-mindedly at that.
Do not carelessly denigrate social institutions or artistic achievement.
Notice that opportunity lurks where responsibility has been abdicated.
Treat yourself as if you are someone that you are responsible for helping.
Work as hard as possibly can one at least one thing and see what happens.
If old memories still make you cry, write them down carefully and completely.
Compare yourself to who you were yesterday not to who someone else is today.
Assume that the person you are listening to might know something you need to know.
Remember that what you do not yet know is more important than what you already know.
If you have to choose, be the one who does things, instead of the one who is seen to do things.

The importance of X (Theory, Methodology, etc.)

Inspired by the Design for X, I was thinking about how to address the question like:

Critically analyse the importance of X in a context. X could be a theory, a methodology or something else.

1. look at the broader context/challenge/area for which the theory was development in order to know WHY and HOW it was generated.

2. Industrial examples: also discuss the key aspects of WHY and HOW

(The more that you can illustrate the points that you make with examples, the more you bring your topic to life.)

To whom is it important?




Where not?

When not?

Success: what must have been done and why (CSF)

Failure: why the theory failed in that particular case

What were the factors affecting the success or failure and How they vary with various context.

3. Overall limitation about the theory

To whom it is not important?




4. Any extension or evolution of this theory and Evaluation (Why do you think it is useful or not)

5. Any complementary theories that may be usefulTo whom is it important?
