Mrs. Carme Chacon, you have no hurry

Yesterday the defense minister and “presidenciable” by the PSOE, Carme Chacón, He gave us know at a news conference he will not stand to organize their party primaries to choose candidates / a for the general elections scheduled for March 2012.

I have not talked in this blog lateral thinking, but today, and with this news, It is a good opportunity to do so. The minister, I imagine well advised, He has applied lateral thinking in its purest form to decline his candidacy. Vertical or logical thinking would have encouraged to stand for a primary, where he had some chance of success against a congress.

And Chacón knows that whoever wins the primary “It will burn” against the PP next March. Why have such a short life?. If not candidate, think that the minister has just 40 just turned years (Pisces, by the way), and it has a looong time ahead. Lateral strategy is clear: let time pass. There is no hurry. First you have to wear those who give the face in the PSOE in the next four or eight years, and then the ground will be prepared.

very clever, minister.

Limitation of thought

Edward De BonoPerhaps this time crisis allow us to recover old values we had hidden in a drawer. The phase of the runaway growth of our economy in recent 30 years comes to an end. Nothing is so easy now, but you have to see the positive side: desenpolvemos possibly the culture of effort, something very useful for generating new ideas (among many other things).

I include in this post Quote Thinker Edward de Bono guys at 2004, entitled 8 = 6+2, referred to limitation of thought the lack of interest to continue looking for alternative answers after a first accurate answer. Bono insists on the need for not stay with the first answer, keep looking, to look elsewhere. The applications of this thinking maverick give excellent results in fields such as political, Actually business management or the sport. There goes the quote:

Most people can not distinguish between: 6 +2 = 8 and 8 = 6 +2. The difference can be quite important. The amount of 6 and 2 He will always lead us 8. However, 8 It may be composed of other combinations other than 6 and 2 (5 +3, 4 +4, 7 +1).

Why is this important? Because people start to believe that you have the answer “right” no need to think that we will get further details. Having the correct answer means you do not have to hear other answers, since they can never be certain. The result is a severe limitation in thought. Edward de Bono 8 guys at 2004

This is the last campaign USA on upcoming elections 4 November.

Incredibly, The campaign aims to encourage voting, voter turnout. In the United States it is rare for a presidential campaign exceeds 50% participation. Many people not involved, and among them, youth groups, the most marginalized ...

Ad, with messages that do not advise vote, It is a pure irony that seeks the opposite effect. ¿Lateral thinking?… possibly. Here's an interesting fight occurs between right and left hemisphere, they end up winning the right, logical least.

I will tell you if the 4 November vote more than one 50%. Di Caprio, Halle Berry, Eleen Degeneres, Forest Whitaker, Courtney Cox, Dustin Hoffman, Benicio del Toro and many more are powerful reasons. That mistake-not- he would more than good to Obama.
