We are continually in a relative condition of
Not Knowing What Actually Works. When something
works once 'bigtime', there is a tendency to keep doing it even when it doesn't thereafter
'always' accomplish the intended objective.
What is occurring is we've found one part of a sequence that works. And when nature, only partially comprehended by us, supplies the
lead-in for our "whatevergetsthingsdone" input, and we apply it at the right time in the right amount, then, it "gets it done" that time.

Unfortunately, in the interest of protecting their positions of power, those who manage the
sequence usually divorce themselves from responsibility for failures that occur, while
taking a full share of credit for successes.
This is not ALL bad -- I don't want to change
the management team every time our ship sinks to the bottom of the ocean -- but we have to find a
way to make management more "comprehension-friendly."

Mike Regards,
