Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Adam Salamon: A Connection Made

« Happy New Year - Possibility is Timeless | Main | Putting the Best People on Customers »



In Italian there's even a saying, or maybe it's in my family -- when you are in a hurry, slow down. It works, it takes less time to do something well as it does to correct what is not so good many times over.

We underestimate the power of concentration. More sometimes is less. When it is more, it may be more things of less import.

Teams made up of different people are indeed stronger in my experience as well.

As part of that older generation to which you refer I LOVE the net for enabling me to discover bright, quick minds like yours. Methinks you would have b e quick, pre-Internet.

Just consider the power in
• going slow to go fast,
• not multi-tasking all the time, and
• collaborating with people who are extremely unlike you
.... in this flattening world dedicated to the power of us.

- another fan
In a civilization when love is
gone we turn to justice and when
justice is gone we turn to power
and when power is gone we
turn to violence.

Opportunity is often inconvenient.


Thanks for the comments. Another word I often hear about our generation is our blatant sense of entitlement. Entitlement and impatience can be seen as one and the same, but that's not to say others don't have that same chip on their shoulder.

Great to meet and glad you enjoyed the article.
