False assumptions, false opinions, false expectations and others may lead businesses and lives astray. False assumptions are like snakes; they bite you unexpectedly and may cause great damage. Like we manage snakes, similarly we may manage false myths.

I dedicate this presentation gladly to the serious thinker Jeff Washburn His posts on myths inspired the idea of this presentation
In my opinion
I am worthless I am the best writer
Life is worthless Money is every thing
Myths are everywhere http://naturalhumanperformance.co m/creating-myth-part-2/

My friend as long as I benet from him/her
This last one reects short time-minded people, in emulation of rst cost-minded people
Some people believe that short term is ALWAYS more protable than long term This is wrong
We tend to make more negative assumptions than positive ones
When we say The best way is. there is an embedded assumption that we know the best
This entails reluctance to make more efforts since we have the best>>> Costly false assumptions
We have the best customers and no need to look for the best till the snake of assumption bites us
Wrong opinions and/or assumptions are like snakes hiding under our skins
Beware of snaky assumptions and opinions
Like snakes, which can slide by without even the slightest sound So, are false assumptions they can slide by and make your most sound investments unsound.
Locate the snake rst And so, Locate the assumption rst
Snakes have a favorable climate to prefer a location And so are assumptions they may locate in favorable business environment
Prepare for surprises of a snake locating you Snaky assumptions might bite you unprepared. Take cautions
Now, you are ready to look for snakes remembering that if you can't see the snake, dont assume there isn't one there. Snaky assumptions may kill your business
Digging for assumptions in the wrong places such as fallen tree leaves may evoke the snakes to come out and thus risking yourself. Under the dry skin of your business beware of snaky assumptions. Dont dig there for the snakes would surface out.
Remember that the smallest snakes may be the most troublesome Small false assumptions are the smallest snakes that day endanger your business
Making assumptions means believing things are a certain way no evidence that shows you are correct
We live in the age of rapid changes. What is feasible today might not be feasible tomorrow The risk of snaky assumptions is getting greater
We either prevent snakes from coming in or remove them if they nd their way near us
Remove rooted snaky assumptions or prevent them from entering. Keep your business environment unfriendly to snaky assumptions
One way of stopping snakes coming in is using cats who can be predators to snakes. Develop ideas that are snaky assumptions repellent. Be creative
I wish you a snaky assumptions- free organization.
