Working Smarter vs. Working Harder LO30262

Dear readers, Keith,

I see no compelling reason to assume that the variations in perspective
within this group differ from the variations of the larger community. The
two averages however might differ, as people participating in a discussion
group like this over the internet tend to have a somewhat more future
oriented approach.

Further more i've noticed that people do prefer to work together with
people working from the same perspective - birds of a feather - and that
most people do not learn how to effectively interact with people having a
different perspective,

In haste,

Jan Lelie
