When the facts are known, it would never occur to us to assume. The solution is clear communication. When we know the truth, assumptions are forever unnecessary.”

Howard Ditkoff presents My Scheme Team Dream: Partners Wanted for Shaping and Changing The World posted at Blog, saying, “Scheming or creating schemas helps us shape a clear understanding of how the various parts of systems relate and connect. It then empowers application through developing strategic, intriguing, and often subversive plans to create innovative change in the world – for better or for worse. After a period of undefined frustration, a discussion with a friend helped me pinpoint my recent lack of partners with whom to co-scheme as the root of my dissatisfaction. In this post, I discuss what scheming means to me and its central role in my worldview and throughout my life in areas ranging from math, medicine and sports to relationships, politics and business. I explore key examples of special shared moments, evolutionary factors and enviably successful teams that explain the excitement and rewards of co-scheming. And, in the service of initiating connection and dialogue with dynamic new “partners in crime”, I describe the similar and complementary assets and qualities that I and they would ideally bring to such an emergent and generative partnership. Read my thoughts on the process and goals of co-scheming at its best and consider whether you might be one of the fellow co-schemers I'm looking for.”

Thanks for hosting again, SJ… and sorry about my late responses again! It seems I’m running about 3 days behind on everything lately.

Hello SJ Yee,

Thank you for submitting our posts at your site.
Nice job, and just want to say thank you for the work

I agree with your statement, that people become a money making machine… for someone else and that our formal education had prepared us to be an employee, trading time for money. Though there is nothing wrong with education,but there is certainly more to life then this.
You are now the right track.
