Title Change

Title Changed in Editing Crisis Conundrum
“One should not aim at being possible to understand, but at being impossible to misunderstand.”
– Quintilian (Marcus Fabius Quintilianus, 1st century, AD)

Well, I thought I had a pretty catchy title going on here …Unfathomable Training for Artistic Leaders…Unfathomable meaning “impossible to measure” as in: “We can’t measure how deep this ocean of knowledge is that I am going to share with you because it is so great in mass and quantity that it is UNFATHOMABLE to conceive how one could impart so much wisdom.”

Of course, I failed to even contemplate the other meaning of the word.


(ŭn-fā th ‘ə-mə-bəl)


  1. Difficult or impossible to understand; incomprehensible: unfathomable theories.

(This is hilarious. <ROFL> If we can’t laugh at ourselves who can we laugh at? I’ll be laughing at this for some time to come.)

Needless to say, I do actually want you to learn something while you are here. So…Although I have to lose an entire syllable, I am changing the title to Fathomable Training For Artistic Leaders and I still get to play off the oceanic word play theme.

It is closer to what I want this site to be… Who really wants to digest too much information that is going to be too big to actually apply anyway.

The lesson here: Never go to print, without editing, editing some more and editing again. Then re-edit it. An even better lesson is to never print anything.
