LAW OF LIFE AND NATURE
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 10 of 20    Next Page >> 

Kamin's Sixth Law: When attempting to predict and forecast macro-economic moves or economic legislation by a politician, never be misled by what he says; instead watch what he does.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Kamin's Third Law: Combined total taxation from all levels of government will always increase (until the government is replaced by war or revolution).
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Kaplan's Law of the Instrument: Give a small boy a hammer and he will find that everything he encounters needs pounding.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Katz's Eighth Maxim: Try to find the real tense of the report you are reading: Was it done, is it being done, or is it something to be done? Reports are now written in four tenses: past tense, present tense, future tense, and pretense. Watch for novel uses of "contractor grammar", defined by the imperfect past, the insufficient present, and the absolutely perfect future.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Katz's Fifth Maxim: Watch out for formal briefings; they often produce an avalanche (a high-level snow job of massive and overwhelming proportions).
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Katz's First Maxim: Where are the calculations that go with the calculated risk?
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Katz's Fourth Maxim: Try to find out who's doing the work, not who's writing about it, controlling it, or summarizing it.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Katz's Law: Men and nations will act rationally when all other possibilities have been exhausted.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Katz's Second Maxim: Inventing is easy for staff outfits. Stating a problem is much harder. Instead of stating problems, people like to pass out half-accurate statements together with half-available solutions which they can't finish and which they want you to finish.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Katz's Seventh Maxim: Most organizations can't hold more than one idea at a time. Thus complementary ideas are always regarded as competitive. Further, like a quantized pendulum, an organization can jump from one extreme to the other, without ever going through the middle.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Katz's Sixth Maxim: The difficulty of the coordination task often blinds one to the fact that a fully coordinated piece of paper is not supposed to be either the major or the final product of the organization, but it often turns out that way.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Katz's Third Maxim: Every organization is self-perpetuating. Don't ever ask an outfit to justify itself, or you'll be covered with facts, figures, and fancy. The criterion should rather be, "What will happen if the outfit stops doing what it's doing?" The value of an organization is more easily determined this way.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Kelley's Law: Last guys don't finish nice.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Kelly's Law: An executive will always return to work from lunch early if no one takes him.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Kennedy's Law: Excessive official restraints on information are inevitably self-defeating and productive of headaches for the officials concerned.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Kent's Law: The only way a reporter should look at a politician is down.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Kerr-Martin First Law: In dealing with their "own" problems, faculty members are the most extreme conservatives.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Kerr-Martin Second Law: In dealing with "other" people's problems, they are the world's most extreme liberals.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Kettering's First Law: If you want to kill any idea in the world today, get a committee working on it.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Kettering's Second Law: If you have always done it that way, it is probably wrong.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Key to Status: S = D/K. S is the status of a person in an organization, D is the number of doors he must open to perform his job, and K is the number of keys he carries. A higher number denotes higher status. Thus the janitor needs to open 20 doors and has 20 keys (S = 1), a secretary has to open two doors with one (S = 2), but the president never has to carry any keys since there is always someone around to open doors for him (with K=0 and a high D, his S reaches infinity).
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Keyes Rule of Misquotation Axiom 1: Any quotation that can be altered will be.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Keyes Rule of Misquotation Axiom 2: Famous quotes need famous mouths.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Keyes Rule of Misquotation Corollary 1A: Vivid words hook misquotes in the mind.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]

Keyes Rule of Misquotation Corollary 1B: Numbers are hard to keep straight.
      - [Laws of Life and Nature]
