HSoftware (More on Change in Paradigms)

We chose to write a few more things related to paradigms over and above what we wrote about paradigms earlier in our previous posts. Particularly we will now write about change in paradigms.

Change in paradigms is an important step in becoming more effective and it is critical too. Also these are one’s day-to-day mindsets or in loose language, day-to-day “beliefs” (not to be confused with “values” about which we wrote earlier). These mindsets get formed over a period of time on thousands of day-to-day things. These paradigms allow you to choose the directions for actions. So getting them correct is important or you will be going in many wrong directions and despite being sincere, honest and efficient in your efforts, you will not reach your destinations (goals/targets). Basically, due to wrong paradigms, you are not effective in finding the right directions.

We give below some pairs of paradigms. In each pair, the two given paradigms are opposite of each other or are at an angle to the other. One of the paradigms in the pair will appear to be more correct or more effective within the frame work of current scenarios. Read on and judge which paradigm in each pair is more correct. Also check for yourself whether taking actions in accordance with one paradigm of the pair will enhance the effectiveness as compared to the actions taken in accordance with the second paradigm of that pair of paradigms. (The pairs of paradigms given below are not in any order and they relate to all the spheres of human activities- personal, family, professional and social).

  • Dictatorship and democracy
  • Formal education is not necessary for success and formal higher level professional education is necessary for success
  • Better quality means higher cost and better quality means lower cost
  • Learn mother tongue; it’s good enough and why not learn more languages
  • Will work in the city where I am born and open to work anywhere in the world
  • I am very selective in what I eat and why not try variety of food
  • Social drinking is OK and social drinking is the first step towards becoming habitual drinker and so, avoid drinking
  • There is no need to give education to females and females should be given/take as much education as possible for better families and better society
  • Too many hierarchies and flatter organization
  • Organizational/others’ help is a must to shape up my career and I am the architect of my career
  • Hiding errors and uncovering errors
  • Low trust and high trust
  • It’s OK if there are a few defects and I should deliver zero defect work
  • Bigger family with more children and smaller family with less children
  • Taking dowry in marriage is OK and taking dowry in marriage is absolutely wrong
  • I am in power and if I take bribe, it’s OK and I do take salary for the work I do, then why should I take bribe
  • Companies belong to major shareholders (the promoters mostly) and companies are inanimate entities and they stand as independent entities (the promoters or major share holders are not the owners at all or by way of their major share holdings, they need not have to become the top officials of the company necessarily or automatically)
  • We will fix it when it breaks down and we don’t want any breakdowns
  • Taking divorce is OK if we don’t get along and we have responsibility towards our kids and so we will try and workout out married life very well
  • Our generation was more disciplined and new generation is irresponsible
  • One should go to the temples, churches, mosques and since the god is always there with you, what is the need to visit these places
  • Economy growth driven by inflation and demands created by advancing loans and economy growth driven by productivity improvements and genuine needs of consumers
  • Women are weak and women are as good as men
  • Some races are superior to others and all races are born equal
  • Too many cooks spoil the broth and team work gives synergy
  • Demonstrating emotions or feelings show your weakness and understanding and managing the emotions of self and others make you more effective
  • Hugging the spouse and children frequently is not really necessary to display your love; they understand your love for them even without such artificiality and hugging the spouse and children frequently and unconditionally enhances the bond in the family
  • More of platonic love with your spouse is the key to successful marriage; physical love is incidental and intimate and frequent physical relationship between husband and wife in addition to a decent level of platonic love is absolutely essential for a successful marriage
