7 Deal with the Residue Brief Overview INTERGON 3. Barriers to changing mood Foucault (1983, p 187) says, people know what they do; they frequently know why they do; but what they dont know is what they do does. Peters (1999, p. xi-xii) says, we get caught up in filling targets, achieving objectives, and meeting deadlines and forget to examine the wider consequences of what we are doing. Crosby (1979, p. 13) says, the problem of quality is not what people dont know about it; the problem with quality is what they think they know about it. Wilson (1991, p. 127) says, intellectual laziness and common sense are the same thing. Common sense is just the trade name of the firm.
