We are running helter skelter toward fantastic opportunities with artificial intelligence. I have stopped looking at future potentials, as well as future hazards, with yesterday’s mind.
Absolutely, humans can and will adapt… it’s just that many humans cannot adapt fast enough.
This is where organizations, governments and societies step in to support and protect the most vulnerable.
I, for one, am very fortunate that I do not need any such support or protection.
I suspect that many of you see yourselves the same way too.

My text to a 22 year old family friend about the dislikes of his first full-time job…and my sense of the world as a 58 year-old father, husband, son, brother, physician, and former employee (turned employer).
Thanks for hanging out yesterday.I see a direct line between people who loved me and supported me (and often suffered while doing so) to my being able to sit casually with you to have a nice lunch, decades later. Seriously consider listening to what you think, say, and feel as NOT being abnormal or diseased.Continue reading “My text to a 22 year old family friend about the dislikes of his first full-time job…and my sense of the world as a 58 year-old father, husband, son, brother, physician, and former employee (turned employer).”
The tail end of my discussion with a young friend regarding his natural frustration, 4 weeks into his first real job…
by the way your bosses, just like your high school coaches, push you hard and don’t want to hear excuses. They believe that you can do good work.What your new bosses will notice are: 1) that you show up on time or, better yet, early. 2) that you ask insightful questions, BUT DO NOT ASKContinue reading “The tail end of my discussion with a young friend regarding his natural frustration, 4 weeks into his first real job…”
The unwritten rules (yes, archaic, and abusive) of showing that we’re serious about our work, wanting to keep our jobs, and serious about supporting our employer…

IS THE WAY THAT YOU THINK, SPEAK, AND ACT WHILE AWAY FROM WORK CONSISTENT WITH HOW YOU PERFORM THESE ACTIONS WHILE AT WORK? IF NOT, THEN YOU ARE NOT BEING INTERNALLY AND EXTERNALLY CONSISTENT. YOU ARE NOT WALKING YOUR PATH. THIS DISSONANCE CREATES TENSIONS WHICH, EVENTUALLY WEAR YOU DOWN, EITHER PHYSICALLY OR MENTALLY. EVENTUALLY, ALL THIS COMES CRASHING DOWN, AFFECTING YOUR PERSONAL LIFE AND YOUR FINANCIAL HEALTH. IT MAY TAKE YEARS, EVEN AS LONG AS DECADES, TO REACH THIS BREAKING POINT, BUT YOUR MIND’S NEED TO RESOLVE (or at least decrease) THESE INCONSISTENCIES IS UNRELENTING.

WORKERS WANT THEIR BOSSES TO CATCH OTHER WORKERS NOT DOING THEIR JOBS. BOSSES CANNOT RELY ON WORKERS TURNING IN THEIR COLLEAGUES AND FRIENDS, EVEN THOUGH POOR PERFORMANCES FROM SOME WORKERS SHIFT MORE WORK, RESPONSIBILITIES, AND RISK ONTO THEIR FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES.

THERE ARE EASIER AND HARDER GIGS, AS WELL AS MORE LUCRATIVE AND LESS LUCRATIVE GIGS IN EVERY PROFESSION. WE HAVE MORE POWER TO CHOOSE THAN WE THINK. CONSEQUENTIALLY, WE MAY BE WILLING TO ACCEPT THE CONSEQUENCES, AND ASSOCIATED LIFE CHANGES, WHICH COME WITH OUR CHOICES.
