Be Negative. Think inside the box. Use Black Hat thinking. Be conscious of the fact that you are being deliberately judgmental. Say why you think it’s wrong. Why it won’t work. Why it’s not true. Why you do not believe it or do not agree with it. Note that if you’re simply being emotional then that comes under another emoji.

Be judgmental.

  1. How can our earth be created in just six days the Bible say as you told me yesterday how can that be I think of it . I think have another thought then we can discuss.

  2. (Black hat) Limiting your view of a service to how it is provided, rather than how it is used, is a blinkered approach that also limits the opportunities in improving the service.

  3. Text to Son
    While I was pleased we were able to get a practice training ‘walk’ in before our Oxfam 100km event in a couple of weeks, your tendency to say ‘sorry’ so often (almost with every second spoken word) I found disconcerting. You are either seeking my redemption or you’re not really sorry and are merely seeking to appease your own sense of guilt. Rather than apologise, if you think it needs contrition on your behalf, reflect more positively on the forebearance of the other. For example, ‘thank you for your patience while I take/make this work related call; or I am grateful that you waited for me.

  4. Memo to myself
    All that politicians care about is to be re-elected and their own self interest. They are not interested in looking at long term solutions to problems unless there is also a short term gain for them.

  5. Email to self:

    Injuries and deaths are just a consequence of infrastructure work. It has always been that way. The bosses want things done quicker, better, and safety gets a distant third. The unions hate the Engineers, the Engineers feel the workers cause the problems themselves and deflect any liability that comes up. There is no point trying to get them to help each other out. They are too far gone. Why bother.

  6. Round 2
    I don’t have to be so judgemental about people. I always need to understand them and their situations , and also need to receive wisely their feedbacks, then I would form clear valuable opinions .

  7. The wedding party will last all night and tomorrow I’ll have a hangover before going to work. It should be on a Saturday, not Sunday!
