Sean Carroll interviews Maria konnikova on his Mindscape podcast

It’s almost monkly or Saintly this idea that the process and what we do is what we should be focusing our judgment on not the outcome. In the real world the idea of being results oriented sounds like accomplishment

Me-Sound familiar?

From a blog post on diversity:

But I wonder: To what extent do people who favor such training, actually implement this?

My comment:
As with just about any “training” in corporateland (e.g. diversity, effective writing…..) the answer will be dependent on whether this is a one and done event or something that becomes ingrained in the corporate culture (through management, peer review, water cooler conversations….) Just as Eliyahu Hanavi found out after his showdown with the neviei habaal – even one time miracles don’t change most people (I Kings 18:20-39).. Change is often a slog – as the Lovin Spoonful almost said
“And then you know you’d better make up your mind to change.
And pick up on one and leave the other behind.
It’s not often easy and not often kind.
Did you ever have to make up your mind to change?”
