When I ask myself if should I keep this blog public or private, I got a strong voice to say private.

Why should I make public my daily questions, and ideas. While there are some inspiration on them, sometimes the ideas are not conclusions.

Governor Brown, who I admire very much, in his final remarks before leaving office said:

Avoid overexposure: “One thing I learned was to have an open-ended conference every week”. This is because sometimes the ideas are not fully developed. Reporters and people have a nasty habit to call in one, when one contradicts oneself.

“It is hard to be consistent in the face of an ever-complex, ever-unfolding story.” This is a lesson for myself.

Further he said: “I am not here to make news. I am here to enlighten”

Gov. Brown regarding money: “Because the more money you have, the better you feel. The better you feel the more you spend. But at that very moment, you should have stopped.”
