To avoid Confusion, do not ask Question. Also prevents Knowledge growth.

A warning sticker on a tractor attachment. Apparently, it isn't obvious. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Questions can be the root of knowledge when it is paired with an understandable answer. It is valid form of communicating knowledge. Confusion reign with answers that are complicated and convoluted. Those really doesn't answer the question. I was asked by a friend, "If you came with a warning label, what would it say." This is my response.
It's a take on the usual warning phrase forms that is on all sorts of labels and bottles.

Failure is a good intention wrapped in bad decisions

(Photo credit: Nomadic Lass) While the road to hell is paved with good intentions, failures have only one or a few good intentions at it's juicy center. It all probably started with a good intention and goal.  The first step was a great idea.  Along the way,  decisions had to be made. But the focus was too much on reaching that goal.  So much so that the intention is soon forgotten and all that matters is reaching that goal, at all costs. The intention is forgotten and the effort loses it's anchor.
