Lean Brain Management

More Success and Efficiency by Saving Intelligence

Intelligence is wasted on problems that themselves have been caused by an excess of intelligence. Lean Brain Management strives toward uncompromising Lean Brain Quality. Lean Brain stands for consistent economization of intelligence in all realms of life: Intelligent systems will only be operated by unskilled workers. Education, universities, and schools would become obsolete. A week of training would be enough for virtually any job. ("You are now the physician for the measles in the State of Ohio. In response to phone calls, send this prescription.") Lean Brain is not aimed at dumbing down! Lean Brain can survive on just a very small amount of central intelligence. Potential savings amount to trillions! This is demonstrated using Germany as an example. With this book, Dueck presents a radical suggestion for world improvement. The desire to laugh infinitely about it will eventually segue into a collective rude awakening. The book contains concrete advice for managers to economize on intelligence, and is thus—in keeping with the theme—written in an easy-to-read fashion. It contains no self-doubt whatsoever.

"Okay Tom, you get to choose. What is your favourite period of history?" Thomas looked a bit bewildered at the bizarre twist the conversation was taking but answered without really having to think about it. "The dinosaurs," he said. The Professor let out a huge groan and Rebecca beamed with delight at the answer. "Dinosaurs? Oh very good Tom, excellent choice. Right, is everybody ready?" She stared ahead for a second as if trying to see something in the distance and then stepped forward, pulling the children with her. The three of them disappeared... Thomas and Emily Fletcher are quite normal children; normal in that their uncle mysteriously disappeared and now a medieval knight is trying to kill them. The only way to find out why somebody wants them dead would be to go back in time and ask their uncle, and the only people that can help are the teachers at the Tempus Viator School of Excellence. So it's very lucky that their new friends are time travellers...

This is a collection of short stories covering just a few subjects in life, spanning the range of emotions. It is the author’s wish that you enjoy the variety of stories, poems, and plays that dwell within the pages of this book. Inspiration for the words came from dreams, observations in life, and a glimpse of what may happen yet. The author wants to point out that a few of the characters speak in a very real way, and language perhaps inappropriate to younger readers will be found within. However, the characters were depicted as real and speak plainly and how they would converse if you were introduced to them. Heartfelt appreciation is given to the author’s parents, sister, friends, and extended family members, both alive and deceased. They influenced the ideas of some stories and have been immortalized in spirit. The author would also like to send thanks to God, the Creator, Who made the brain of the author become inspired by the life he has lived, so far. Always remember that you may not know how you affect the life of another. Life is what we make of it. May you be given the opportunities to show others your potential and try to make a difference. Never forget: everyone you meet has a story to tell. It is up to them to want to tell the story, and up to you to care enough to listen, read about it, write it down, and remember. Thank you for the purchase of this book.
