Stupid me! | October 17, 2007

Stupid me!

This morning I had to plug a cable into one piece of equipment, so that I could access it from computer. Guess what, I tried to plug it for 30 minutes and still failed. Because I’m stupid! I’ve already read this free ebook: Mind of the Innovator: Taming the Traps of Traditional Thinking, and I already knew that doing the same thing again & again doesn’t solve the problem. And I still followed the habit. The solution – I just had to plug the cable into the next plug. Easy, right?

The same day (today), we went to install some equipment to another place. Guess what happened? One of the guys connected the power cable wrongly, based on a simple assumption (red goes with red). Wrong assumption! The team helplessly started calling for help. But I refused to believe the assumption this time, the wires were changed. The problem was fixed in seconds!

That’s how I earn bread (rice?) for my kids. I browse Internet and read cool stuff, then I implement it at work. It’s totally worth the money I spend on Internet connection.

  1. happens sometimes..
    especially when we r overconfident and believe that its ok to ignore certain things we think minor…or when w r stuck in routines…
    eg: thr was a test recently and details were announces ages before…venue is test room. ‘well, it must be th test room we usually go to..THE test room’ i thought(completed th announcement from my own imagination:)).
    the time came, went there in a studentish excitement and anxiety… thr were ppl i v never evr seen in that class. then i’d learnt that the test was in THE OTHER test room. by the time i reached thr it was already 1/2 hour…
    th sad thing is, i had made exactly th same blunder last sem 🙂

  3. I guess it happens everyday to me. But now I stop sometimes and think before I start repeating…
    I guess it increased my efficiency at least 50% more 😀
