Knowledge surprise………………

Knowledge surprise………………

A lot of people support that if you do not know something you cannot measure it………. I always had a problem in that phrase. Of course it is important to have measurements but my question is that “can we measure everything?

” I do not think so. While I was working in KM I thought how someone can measure knowledge? Can you ask how many knowledge do we have and get an answer of 20 cm or 50 kg? Nope. Back in Greece we say that someone possess a lot of kg of knowledge if he/she is clever but it is slang and it is for fun. How do you measure people feelings? Today I have 30 kg of sadness. Nope Thus I do not think that everything can be measured. .. . . . . . . .

It is again that the most important figures are unknown and unknowable. 

Thus the quote of the day is:

It is wrong to suppose that if you can't measure it, you can't manage it – a costly myth (Deming the new economics).

It is a great lesson that when we go out there for work not be based on what we can measure but in what we cannot…………………

    I’ve had an idea which I’d like to run past people. I would get a loan to buy some treasure which I would then bury somewhere and then write a book givivng clues on how to go about finding it. It would have to be very well hidden otherwise someone will find it quickly and people will stop buying the book and the idea is to cover the loan and make some money on top of that. The clues would have to be very cryptic to keep it going. I know Kit Williams has done a similar thing before though I think he had money to buy the treasure. What do you think?

    Thank you – I always value other peoples opinion. In the same vein, I’m an avid researcher when it comes to travel. “Tripadvisor” is a favourite of mine. Recently I’ve been looking at short breaks in European cities. I thought I’d found a good deal and looked the hotel up on Tripadvisor. Someone had headed their review “This Hotel Displays Religious Propoganda!” I was rather put off by this until I read further down the page “The hotel displays religious propoganda – there was a bibel in the room”.

  8. This comment ” It would have to be very well hidden otherwise someone will find it quicklyI” lets me think of one person. If he hidden all sorts of resources well, he would not be killed. I just now heared the news that some organization starts to ‘find’ his families, how terrible things !!! And it was reported that he trained his sons (when his sons was two years old ) to do some very rigorous training, and some of them felt unhappy about that, but now the fact proved that what he did was right for his ife and his families. Best wishes for his families!

    Anything else that will come to surprise you. Again, these are limits to self-belief and self-knowledge. Other-knowledge is not so restricted.
