It’s only Words

Words are merely words. Different people attach different meanings to the same word. At the same time, within the contex of a single conversation, we can use the different words to distinguish between different ideas). This is even necessary, for how will we compare ideas if not to use a different word for each.

Hence, it is important to be careful of the use of words. When you are listening to someone else, check your own thought process, that you are not getting the wrong message by attaching a different meaning to a word, than the speaker.

The emotional attachment, is of course a related but different matter.

This is a relevant discussion when you are performing or learning any task that is centered around defining or analyzing complex matters. Such as in EA (enterprise architecture) or in BA (business analysis).

About Ed Simon

This is my user name as Editor of this blog. Some site visitors may already be acquainted with the different areas of my interest. I am uncertain how I should classify myself. I have lived studied and worked in Malaysia and in the UK for long periods. I have also travelled to many other countries for both work, pleasure, and just "wandering". I leave the postings to tell about my areas of work and interest, so as not to bore you with a lengthy (and probably embellished :-) recount of my triumphs and tribulations.
