The cessation of understanding

There are lot's of stuff, whose operational details I don't even pretend to understand. From Google's search alogarithm to 'herbal' toothpaste. Of course, that doesn't stop me from using it.

But when it comes to my work, I insist on understanding the general workings, if not the details. After all, I have to persuade a sceptical audience why it produces results that are more beneficial than a competitor's! I try and square up what the what the mysterious sciences of 'research' and 'planning' throw up with my understanding and intuition.

There is no magical silver bullet or panacea for getting everything right all the time. Because this is people we are dealing with!

Apparently, the finacial business is different...
