ONE OF THE QUIRKS OF BRIGHT PEOPLE IS THAT ONCE THEY ARE REQUIRED TO PERFORM A TASK, THEY CAN RECOGNIZE, UNDERSTAND, AND PERFORM A FEW ROUNDS OF A ROUTINE, OR MUNDANE TASK. THEN, OFTEN, THEY LOSE INTEREST.

These same bright people don’t understand why others are angry at them when they falter when they stop performing the task, have difficulty sticking with the task, or even procrastinating about starting the task. These same bright people KNOW what to do, how to do it, and the importance of completing the task, but, mentally,Continue reading “ONE OF THE QUIRKS OF BRIGHT PEOPLE IS THAT ONCE THEY ARE REQUIRED TO PERFORM A TASK, THEY CAN RECOGNIZE, UNDERSTAND, AND PERFORM A FEW ROUNDS OF A ROUTINE, OR MUNDANE TASK.

WHAT ELON MUSK DOESN’T STATE (or understates)…

If his many-ton cars and trucks can nimbly navigate a complex external world, autonomously, accurately, and at high speeds, then these same sensors, perceptions, predictive models, and navigation systems can navigate robots, while alongside humans, in our homes, robots in our hospitals and nursing homes, robots in our warehouses and factories, robots in our mines,Continue reading “WHAT ELON MUSK DOESN’T STATE (or understates)…”

FOR ALL MY HIGH SCHOOL YEARS, I WORE A SIZE 10 1/2 SHOE. THESE SHOES WOULD PINCH AND HURT FOR A FEW MONTHS, UNTIL THEY STRETCHED. AT 23 YEARS OLD, SOMEHOW, I FINALLY BROKE OUT OF THE MINDSET OF HAVING TO SUFFER FOR MONTHS AFTER EACH PURCHASE. I FOUND MY TRUE, OUT OF THE BOX COMFORTABLE SHOE SIZE WAS 12 1/2. THIS IS THE SHOE SIZE I HAVE WORN FOR THE 35 YEARS SINCE MY REVELATION.

What blinders do we have on? What unnecessary pains do we complacently accept? What comfortable (and comforting) facts and paradigms do we accept in our lives, for years at a time, despite our pains, without question or attempt to find different, if not better, options and opportunities? What do we know about we don’t knowContinue reading “FOR ALL MY HIGH SCHOOL YEARS, I WORE A SIZE 10 1/2 SHOE. THESE SHOES WOULD PINCH AND HURT FOR A FEW MONTHS, UNTIL THEY STRETCHED.

MAYBE, “NUMBERS DON’T LIE”, BUT HOW WE COLLECT THEM, ARRANGE THEM, MANIPULATE THEM, AND INTERPRET THEM CAN CERTAINLY LEAD TO SOME HIGH-BROWED LYING.

PEOPLE WITH ANTICIPATORY ANXIETY, GENERALIZE ANXIETY, EVEN OBSESSIVENESS, UNKNOWINGLY HAVE DEVELOPED MAGICAL THINKING. THEY HAVE COME TO ACCEPT, AND QUIETLY TAKE PRIDE IN THE FACT THAT, THEIR WORRIES, THEIR HYPERVIGILANCE, THEIR PRAYERS, AND THEIR LIST MAKING, ARE PREVENTING (or at least minimizing) BAD THINGS FROM HAPPENING TO THEMSELVES, THEIR LOVED ONES, AND EVEN PREVENTING BAD THINGS FROM HAPPENING TO THE WORLD AROUND THEM.

People with these beliefs and behaviors actually see and worry about real world issues. The only problem is that they are trapped with deeper and broader worries, which they cannot just think about and be able let go, pray about and be able let go, or act on and be able to let go.

WANT TO START AN INDEPENDENT BUSINESS? IF WE ARE SUCCESSFUL AND FINALLY NEED TO HIRE PEOPLE, OFTEN, FOR US CONSCIENTIOUS BUSINESS OWNERS, OUR ENERGY AND FOCUS TURN FROM GROWING AND MANAGING OUR BUSINESSES TO MAKING SURE THAT WE CAN KEEP OUR EMPLOYEES EMPLOYED. WHAT NOBODY TELLS US IS THAT WE NOT ONLY BECOME RESPONSIBLE FOR FEEDING AND CLOTHING AND HOUSING OUR EMPLOYEES (their salaries), BUT ALSO BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR DEPENDENTS.
