It’s far too much to say that effective hoping is the only – or even the biggest – part of what it takes to succeed.

The Internet has made it much more effective and cheaper to spread propaganda.

When I’m talking about depression, I’m talking about the more severe forms of depression, and I think that conceptualising as a form of grief is probably not the most effective way of looking at it. I mean, at the end of the day, people suffer enormously, and you want to treat it.
A credible and effective response to climate change – which protects future generations from an unacceptable level of risk – needs the involvement of all countries.

Is discipline (both mental and physical) in place of coddling truly child abuse? I don’t know, but it sure as hell is effective.
I would assert that highly effective leaders are made more than they’re born. Every leader I know who’s been highly effective has worked hard at it, and they’ve been students of it. The more you’re a student of leadership, the more you figure out what works for you and the more effective you’re going to be.
Now, modern economies have a very effective mechanism for deciding if salaries are really too high: it’s called the free market. That’s how most people’s salaries are set, after all, including those of major-league baseball players and European soccer players.
Contrary to conventional military and game theory, the most effective offense is sometimes a direct attack against your political opponent’s greatest strength – not his weaknesses – to place him immediately on the defensive.

In 70s America, protest used to be very effective, but in subsequent decades municipalities have sneakily created a web of ‘overpermiticisation’ – requirements that were designed to stifle freedom of assembly and the right to petition government for redress of grievances, both of which are part of our first amendment.
New technologies, innovative management, higher productivity, displacements in the labour market, increased migration – these are all provoking major economic, social, and political shifts. These shifts need to be better understood if we are to address them in a positive and effective manner.

Owners sometimes think their dogs have already suffered so much that they couldn’t possibly inflict any more criticism. Yet it’s that very firm, effective training that would make those dogs happier and more secure.

People have heard that before, but I didn’t realize how profound it could be until I did the actual testing with continuous glucose monitors. And I tested all different varieties and species of cinnamon from Ceylon to Saigon.
E-governance is easy governance, effective governance, and also economic governance. E-governance paves the way for good governance.

Republicans should be prepared to bolster their own grassroots efforts, keep promises made on the campaign trail and to fend off calculated, effective attacks from their progressive opponents.

Drones are just another weapon, and they turn out to be a very effective weapon that puts no American troops at risk, and I don’t see why we shouldn’t use them against identified enemy targets.
The most effective way to preach the gospel is through example. If we live according to our beliefs, people will notice.
Some people mistake grit for sheer persistence – charging up the same hill again and again. But that’s not quite what I mean by the word ‘grit.’ You want to minimize friction and find the most effective, most efficient way forward. You might actually have more grit if you treat your energy as a precious commodity.

Even very young children need to be informed about dying. Explain the concept of death very carefully to your child. This will make threatening him with it much more effective.

I want to win. I want to play serious. I want to be effective.

If your reader has been given a rousing opening, he will usually then sit still for at least some exposition. But be sure to follow that chunk of telling with one or more dramatized scenes. That’s much more effective than being given section after section of telling.

Political and social events must also be effective, but not in a very obvious fashion. But political confusion and prolonged peace undoubtedly affect creative thought but whether they respectively hinder or help it is not at all certain.

If the world gets a lot hotter in a hurry and the primary aim is to cool it down, then the current plan of carbon mitigation will almost certainly not be effective. It’ll be too little, too late, and too optimistic – in large part because the atmospheric half-life of CO2 is roughly 100 years.
I think the rest of the world has a very wide, very slow kick. It’s very simple, breaststroke. People think it’s highly technical. But the more narrow, more effective and quicker you can execute it, the faster you are going to go. There’s less drag, basically.
Introverts are more effective leaders of proactive employees. When you have a creative, energetic work force, an introvert is going to draw out that energy better.

With comedy, it’s a combination of knowing the comedic beat was good – it made you laugh, it made people on the crew laugh. With drama, you do something deep and if your stuff was really effective, the ultimate result is silence. Silence is not necessarily… that would also be the result if you sucked.
The appreciation of capital assets is already taxed at an extremely favorable rate compared to labor. That’s why the rich pay such a low effective tax rate no matter what their marginal tax bracket.

Stronger regulation and supervision aimed at problems with underwriting practices and lenders’ risk management would have been a more effective and surgical approach to constraining the housing bubble than a general increase in interest rates.
I hate all the terrorists in the world, whatever the purpose of their struggle. However, I support every active civil revolt against any occupation, and Israel, too, is among the despicable occupiers. Such revolt is both more just and more effective, and it does not extinguish one’s spark of humanity.

The most effective tool I have to work with artists I admire is to point to other artists that I admire and show that I’ve worked with them many, many times. It’s not because I have option deals; it’s because they want to keep working with us.
To me, a bag in a tree is like a flag of chaos, and when I remove it, I’m capturing the flag of the other side. In the end, it doesn’t matter how ironic or serious or even effective on a larger scale bag snagging may be.
Americans must step back and realize that an effective foreign policy is very difficult to devise, and we must present a united front to make it work.
I think, in a large way, it’s, ‘OK, you’ve knelt; you’ve made your point.’ But I don’t necessarily feel like that. I don’t know what that looks like. Do I kneel forever? I don’t know, probably not. But I think until I can feel like I’m being more effective in other ways, then this seems appropriate to me.
Expanding access to decent work opportunities is the most effective way to increase labor-market participation, lift people out of poverty, reduce inequality, and drive economic growth.
