EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE - ARBONNE IS THE SMART WAY TO CARE FOR YOUR SKIN
WANT TO TAKE OFF LIKE DANTZIG DID?
WHAT IF HE'D BEEN TOLD THEY WERE UN-SOLVABLE??
What if he believed he couldn't do it?
In 1939, 24-year-old George Dantzig began his graduate studies at the University of California at Berkeley.
"I arrived late one day to one of [Jerzy] Neyman's classes," he later recalled. "On the blackboard were two problems which I assumed had been assigned for homework. I copied them down. A few days later I apologized to Neyman for taking so long to do the homework - the problems seemed to be a little harder to do than usual. I asked him if he still wanted the work. He told me to throw it on his desk. I did so reluctantly because his desk was covered with such a heap of papers that I feared my homework would be lost there forever.
"About six weeks later, one Sunday morning about eight o'clock, Anne and I were awakened by someone banging on our front door. It was Neyman. He rushed in with papers in hand, all excited: 'I've just written an introduction to one of your papers. Read it so I can send it out right away for publication.'
For a minute I had no idea what he was talking about.
To make a long story short, the problems on the blackboard which I had solved thinking they were homework were in fact two famous unsolved problems in statistics. That was the first inkling I had that there was anything special about them."
Dantzig, George (1914-2005) American statistician [noted for his development of the simplex method of linear programming]
