یک جمله خیلی عالیه از این سری یاد گرفتم که واقعا در ذهنم ته نشین شد:

It's not enough to be right, you also have to be effective.

لیست کردن حقایق برای متقاعد کردن یا رسوندن دیدگاهتون کافی نیست. حقایق رو باید طوری ساخت و پرداخت که موثر باشن.

توی بیوگرافی استیو جابز یادمه جایی که جابز می خواست مدیر وقت پپسی رو متقاعد کنه که پپسی رو ول کنه و بیاد مدیریت اپل رو قبول کنه چنین جمله ای در آخر بهش گفت:

جابز: ببین می خوای تا آخر عمرت به مردم آب شکر بفروشی یا می خوای بیای جایی که توش دنیا رو می تونی تغییر بدی!

Best thing I've listened to in ages. A call out to our collective BS strategies of thinking that are causing a myriad of problems in our communities, nation, world and in our own personal lives. Our lackadaisical approach to critical thinking has created a wound. Neil deGrasse Tyson sticks his finger in it (gently but firmly) to show where the infection has happened and reminds us to hold ourselves to a higher standard of finding truth. I needed to hear this. I've been lazy. NdGT is a good teacher in that he totally calls you out and it's your choice whether to get back on track or not- but in the end you are left knowing you can do better, and wanting to do so. I have respect for anyone who can help to change a person's direction for the better and then, *at the same time* fuel them with confidence for their journey.
