learning from everything is the attribute of an observant and inquiring mind.

The inquiring mind is however not tuned to finding solutions - and is restricted by time or opportunities, until the success in terms of observation is served in a platter.

To my inquiring mind has been the persistent question: As to who this ant is: the white ant.. Termite or the red ant.
Probably it is red ant… as shows the picture sketched by Ndubuisi Ekekwe thoughts, or the illustration on HBR site. I believe the white ant is much better networked.

The technology has it that the ANTs has given to the premise of ANT theory.
Quote
“Actor–network theory (ANT) is an approach to social theory and a research methodology, originating in the field of science studies, which is based on two key principles; putting all the factors involved in a social situation on the same level and doing away with the concept of social forces.”

Attribues of ANT’s formation as visualised by Ndubuisi Ekekwe: Openness, Trust, Partnering, TEAMS, being focussed, diligence and Re-organisation are paradigms the society already is aware of. It is probably the discipline which was not observed…. and this is unbecoming in ANTS, but never less than a leader question for common man?

A Marathon continues…….Personal Development

A Marathon continues
Unabated
of Unfettered and untiring participants
who have rather anxiously awaited…
‘perhaps for the like of a previous baton to arrive’

So it was to be augmented by yet another marathon….
Which joins the former

A partner in progress.

when I Love IIF*
(*The Institute of Indian Foundrymen,

only when you want to challenge for betterment.

So Foundryman , wake up and smell the coffee3,
and stop gonking 4 about the hidden threats to foundry,
Recognize opportunities, over threats why puh-leeze5?

Engineering as a ‘cleverness’ paradigm is WOW!

While this engineer’s WOW is no where low,
Be it at house, indoors, or in the meadow,
In health care, shopfloor, a road, or their shadows,
At good times you make the earth systems to bow!
Though your each action or word deserves a Kudo!

Many after effects may need be humbled somehow?
Viz. Engineering – you gave man the Arms!

Driving an Engineer to success so dear, dear
It calls for an engine, put in front or rear,
As pulling is easier, while it has no weight to bear!
Ah! Bookish impacts and principles are so queer,
At times, it puts all common science to tears!
