The paranoid win and how

Oh yes , you have to be paranoid to survive in today's world. Sounds like cliche'. Well, can't help it but I have to got to say this about today's world(so even I have palns to cahnge the world...wanna join the club).

You are born into a world where quality concepts like Six Sigma are common parlance, you have to deal with "thinking out of the box " workshops which your organization kindly sends you to(hoping against hope that you return from the workshop like a Renaissance-era genius ), you have contemporary fables like how "insanely great" companies like Apple are the bastions of creativity and where wild dreams meets the solid ground of engineering.

Yes,yes an done more emphatic yes. The paranoid are ruling the earth. (That includes one Mr. Bush and one Mr.Gates). You get the idea, don't you.

So what do you intend to do with the rest of your life.Let it go stale or would you rather sacrifice stability to what we commonly call "the adrenalin rush" of jumping into a situation where lesser mortals dare not tread.(For a balanced perspective , I can't help but recollect this Biblical quote "Fools rush in where angels dare to tread").

So,lest you are inclined that I belong to the camp who wish to be different from the pack for the heck of it, you bet you are right. NORMAL IS BORING.

The paranoid win and how.
