Brain Surgery

Watch yourself when you are trying to get something done in haste. You will be angry, violent and aggressive.

I was not much surprised when I read that haste is a form of violence.

This means that you are committing violence against yourself or subordinates or kids or friends if you are asking them to deliver too much in the shortest possible time. Bad for you and bad for those who work with you.

I remember reading somewhere advice of the CEO of a mega corp (probably Oracle Corp.) to his newly inducted secretary who was overwhelmed by the volume of work. “Don’t worry if something gets delayed, We do not do brain surgery.”, he told her.

Most of us are not in the brain surgery business either.
