“Increasingly in recent times we have
come first to identify the remedy that is most agreeable, most convenient, most
in accord with major pecuniary or political interest, the one that reflects our
available faculty for action; then we move from the remedy so available or
desired back to a cause to which that remedy is relevant.” — John Kenneth
Galbraith


There is always more than one way to do things or to think about
things. Although this is usually obvious, occasionally it isn’t. At times, it
appears that there is only one explanation, one possible interpretation, one
right action, one correct understanding. That is when you need to be most
alert. Obvious and right aren’t necessarily the same. When there seems to be
only one right way to think about or to understand anything, stop, reconsider,
and give yourself a chance. The rule is to ponder the situation until at least
one alternative “right” scenario comes to mind. Most always, there
will be one if you are patient and persistent, and usually more than one.
