## First Quote

Beginning somewhat provocative:

Can you feel it? when the software does not do what it should? This quote is about quantifiable information. Stuff that can be counted and measured. But while we can also also count anything we find outside, we will never have the complete picture, because we can never count everything. And when investing the Effort, money and time to analyse the outside, at the time we get the result, it might just be irrelevant.

## Second Quote

Going in a similar direction:

Wow, relevant information is qualitative. Informations that we need to develop a sense for, where we need a good intuition. We need experience to make good decisions based on qualitative information.

## Third Quote

Very quick, check the next quote

Do you know that when getting lost in more and more information. When buying a new PC or other gadget, study lots of options, probably way to many, and actually getting distracted from what I actually wanted. While for personal, this can be very joyful, in business however there are usually bigger amounts of data and lots valuable resources at risk. We have to figure out what is the relevant information.

## Fourth Quote

This one is so huge, I see so many decisions made by inexperienced people, including me. We all always strive for the best solution. Sometimes we wish, there is someone with even more experience. This quote tells you, not to do everything on your own. Ask for help, and while it can cost, it will certainly pay off.
