Whilst roaming the interweb and dozing through meetings, I have collected the Iron Laws of Human Behavior:
1. You get more of what you reward, and less of what you punish.
2. The less you know about something, the easier it looks.
3. If everything is a priority, nothing is a priority.
No particular claim to originality of thought is made, but I rarely get through either a political or a business discussion without seeing one or more of them in action. I will caution the reader that noting the application of an Iron Law out loud in a business setting is not without its risks.
Additional nominations and/or corollaries are hereby solicited.
