« Attitude is Everything - Positive Thinking | Main | You never know unless you try! »

August 26, 2010



Realize the significance and importance of your thoughts and actions and the effects they have on your life and others.

This is so reminiscent of the 1984 Union Carbide gas leak in Bhopal, India, a terrible tragedy that understandably continues to evoke strong emotions even after 25 years.

Well researched Rajiv.


Hindsights is 20/20. Do you think BP would have let it happen if they could have seen the consequences of those small warning signals? Which sane person would not stop it?
Just to present a contrary view to think about. (:-

Thank you, Rajiv, for sharing your insights from your trip to Louisiana. In the short term, there will be no easy answers in response to this un-natural disruptive event. In the long term, we can only hope that Mother Nature's power will help us restore the environment back to its "natural" direction.


Response to JR: Large organizations do not make decisions the way "sane persons" do. They are not motivated by a sense of personal responsibility or rational assessment of risk, only by profit. That doesn't make them evil, it just makes them capitalists; they're doing what they're supposed to do for their shareholders. Since we can't expect them to act in the public interest, the government has to set guidelines and limits, and we (voters) have to hold the government accountable to do so.


Thanks for sharing. Just by coincidence about an hour back, I just picked up this book on “butterfly effect” from the store out of curiosity for a quick read J I completely agree that all small actions of today can have major impacts in the future. This is something I learnt while doing 7 step problem solving for a number of manufacturing issues. If you drill down through the 5 Whys, you will see a small action ultimately led to the major excursion..
