Secret of Success LO25019 -Humor

From: Winfried Dressler (

We don't have too many jokes here and I like the following one, so I
thought I share it with you:

A successful CEO has been asked by a journalist:
"What is the secret of your success?"

The CEO replied:
"I can answer this question in two words:
Good decisions."

"Well, but what is it that makes you decisions so good?"

"I can answer this question in just one word:

"Aha, and what is it that makes your experiences so unique?"

"To answer this question, I need two words again:
bad decisions."

It seemed to me, as if this little joke sheds some light on so complex
issues like authentic learning, becoming-being and the role of LEM -
without making it simplictic.

Liebe Gruesse,


[Host's Note: Jokes that say something about organizational learning are
always welcome here. Thanks Winfried! ..Rick]
