Having a bad week. My HTML/CSS is looking ragged. My head is distracted. Lots of negative interactions. It has been hard to keep my head up. The beard has grown back, which is a good thing, I think. (Tangent – Remember in The Tick, when the mustache attached itself to the Tick and spoke in Spanish, but the Tick thought it was some crazy moon language. That was funny.)
Here is an interesting question. Let’s say you have two people. The first person, who is about my height, goes through a project and interacts with people. Of the people he interacts with, 20% love him completely, 20% hate him and 60% are neutral. (bell curve) Another person (not my height) goes through a project and interacts with the same number of people. That person has 0% who love him or hate him, but rather everyone thought the person was fine, neutral.
Which person would you rather have on your team?
Let’s introduce another variable. Let’s say the quality of the end-result of the project is substantially better with the person who is my height. Does that change your decision?
Of course, this is totally hypothetical. These people are fictional and have no relation to the author and publisher of this blog.
