images-4Edward de Bono wrote a great book about hats – in which he defined different thought process for different thinking situations and if you have time to think what thinking you should think before you think what you thought, then I think this book will help thinking think thought better.

But, if you’re like me and are too busy to think what you thought before you thought what you think, you might want to consider a few “nono” ideas. One of which is “pressure causes relationships to fail.”

100% of the time.

You might think pressure squeezes solutions out. Or pressure changes people. Or pressure solves problems. These days pressure is just another word for passive aggression or, before that phrase was invented, just plain nastiness.

Being nasty, is a part of us all but when we think it’s going to cause a nice result, we are seriously deluded. No relationship thrives on pressure.
