    The Nirvana Fallacy

    I do the best I can. I am aware I am not perfect, nor are my solutions so I simply provide to the world the best of my ability. For group solutions it's a tad more tricky, people can be stubborn and attached to their own beliefs so giving guidance can be akin to smashing ones head against a...

    What is the Measure of a Person?

    Am I comfortable being measured? Sure, everyone will interpret the results they see differently anyway, so I am a dozen different people to the people that know me. In the end we can be ourselves, because everyone will have their own opinion on who we are different from everyone else. One of...

    i found a problem that is hindering my growth

    I come from Australia, which is a very multi-cultural place. You visit a friends house to have lunch and hear them discussing their beliefs in a passionate manner explaining why they are right and everyone else is wrong. You visit someone else for dinner and you may hear someone from a...
