With all the bad statistics of how everyone is worried about how the economy is doing and how the decline in shopping was due to everyone worried about their "Job Security", hey gang here's a hint...IT'S A FALSE SECURITY! Anwyay, I wanted to drop thisin for everyonr to think about...wrote it today.

Well, the hardest time of the year is now done!

New projects can begin and we don't have to deal with executives wondering what we're gonna come up with to drive Black Friday. Not that it was going to help much anyway...We're in a recession! DOH!

I had a couple of really interesting conversations regarding our economy and where they thought things were headed regarding the market and its condition. We all were of the same opinion that if things don't change soon, we are teetering at the edge of a depression. We also all came to the same conclusion, this particular country is beginning to get out of its comfort zone, and beginning to realize that we are a lot more responsible for our actions than we thought. It was a friend that made me realize that even my meager decisions affect others around me. Guess we all need to take a better perspective on life. Start recognizing that we have a responsibility to the rest of the world, even though we don't want it, we got it. We need to take care of it.

Sure, we don't want to have to deal with everyone else's crap, but we started it, we need to finish what we started. This means that the next nuts we vote into office will understand this "bi=partisan" stuff has to end, and they need to do things to the people's satisfaction. I don't mean just for the blue collar, or just the white collar, not just the rich or the poor. They need to get it together for the good of the greater not the one.

This brings a big "yeah right" on from everyone...ok so, do you throw your hands up and stop fighting to make it right? At the same do we revolt? C'mon, think logically already.

I took a Critical thinking class once and our instructor was a trial lawyer...this was an interesting class...believe ye me...the fights that almost started in this class because of what someone's brother or sister or mom or dad went through with a certain situation, WHOA! The emotions ran deep in this class!

I got to speak up in the class one day and nicely explained that not a single person in that room was going to make it in the corporate world simply because they were making choices and decisions in their own lives by their emotions rather than doing their homework and finally coming to a real conclusion...one that was driven by information and "Critical thinking".

The response was kinda interesting. Many sat there in kind of disbelief that I spoke for one.

For two, what I just said basically threw all of their opinions and rationalizations right out the window. So, some of them wouldn't talk to me anymore...LOL! Some chose to think before they did say anything to me. My instructor? He loved me! (not literally) He and I had some great conversations over the phone about the subjects after class about how to think critically and take the point of view that had no view...

What da heck does that mean Mike?

Here's what it means;

Nothing makes sense until you have all the facts, and to make it make sense you have to have all of the facts. If not, you are taking an uncalculated risk that will cost you in the short and long term.

Don't let emotions and traditions and any other emotional based information permeate into your head or heart for that matter to cause you to decide too early. Take the time to research your thoughts, and sort them out. I have a friend that is so deliberate in his thinking, that when you ask him a question, he will literally say.." uuuummmmm...maybeee, you should try this....ok?" What he does is while he says "ummmmm", he is thinking how would this work out the best for this subject? Then he makes his suggestion according to what he has figured out. His decisions are usually spot on. Others in that company I cannot vouch the same.

Point: Take the time to do your homework, find out, and if you run out of time, see if you can delay the answer. If not, go with the best you can come up with, or find others that have more info than you, and utilize them as a resource. Take the time to take the time...sheesh.

Don't rush...here's another thought, "If you have to rush, You're late! Take the time to be early, make it easier on yourself."

So much for guru wisdom, let's see if anyone really gets it shall we?
