I was recently introduced to an application called ‘Quora’ whereby an individual is able to select their topic of interest, ask questions and have them answered by professionals and members of the public.
Now, the purpose of this application is to share knowledge and experience, but as always I came across an interesting one, and by interesting I mean completely ridiculous.
One asks: Why should I provide my knowledge to ‘Quora’ for free?
Politely enough someone responded by quoting Eleanor Roosevelt saying “When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die”.
Moral of the story: There is such a thing as a stupid question. Since time is money, this selfish human should be charged for the 2 minutes he wasted of my time and yours for being ignorant.
Luckily, someone balanced the above question by asking: Which is the most inspiration quote in the world? And as you know it, It’s Michael Jordan experience that takes the floor :-
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games, 26 times I’ve trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over in my life. And that is why I succeeded”.
