An Engineer is No Match for a Rascal926

Belew private msg quote post Address this user
I am reading a book, "The Great Bridge. I came across this sentence -

“An engineer who has not been educated as a spy or detective is no match for a rascal.”

This is true for content marketers, too. No matter how good we are, if we are not spies or detectives.... we are no match for rascals in our industry.

This book was written abt events in 1880. Rascals have been around a long time, eh?

@tiennyLearn human nature. Most manipulative human-being have a distorted but effective grasp of social intelligence. Come prepared, understand the competition, stand for your values, the truth said with conviction often prevails against the lie disguised with flattery.

@morrnel

king Solomon called it "Always learning but never coming to a knowledge of the truth."

At some point you have to put down the books and act.

There is knowledge gained by listening, seeing, thinking, reading.

Then there is knowledge gained by experiencing, doing, trying, failing and succeeding.

@lunar_ranger Thank God to stand on my own values.

@belew Ha ha ha! Am I like a rascal? Seems like. :p Because I have been doing too much, banging my head onto the wall and then succeed. Who is smarter than a rascal? I have been praying about this.

@tienny

A rascal is someone who wants to harm you, to cheat you, to cheat others, to short cut hard work.

@Belew Ups. Sorry to understand the word wrongly. So "curious" is the perfect word to describe myself.

No wonder people misunderstand me
