Pondering questions and thoughts

Should we worry about doing the right thing, or doing things right?

I see you work at one of those companies where the two are separate and mutually exclusive things. :lol:

Not so much like that. I've just been reflecting on some decisions I've made in my life. Seeing if it could have gone a better direction if I took more adjacency in dealing with people.

Doing the wrong things wrong is just a bloody waste of time.
Doing the wrong things right is... shooting yourself in the foot.

Doing the right things wrong, gives you an A for affort but is still missing the point.
Doing the right things right is where it's at.


Question of my own, how much do you value intent behind peoples actions. Can you enjoy a gesture if not done in good faith?

Sorry, I'm drunk and chaotic neutral so you best believe i'm going to be doing whatever I feel like.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Why is it called a driveway when you mostly park on it.

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

Have you ever noticed the third hand on a watch or clock is called the second hand?
