Just because one is famous does not give them license to get away with things that demean or harm others. Powerful people have great opportunity to make life better for those around them but sometimes they act in such a way that discriminates and abuses. All sorts of people have paid the price for not doing the right things when they had the chance. We live in a world where affluence and influence can do great harm to the innocent among us. I ask what is so wrong with behaving like a grown up and being a force for good instead of wanting to get away with murder. If an every day person did some of the things we see in media they would be locked up immediately.
When it’s all said and done it takes everyday people to get the job done of being kind, considerate and encouraging us all to live together in a safe local, national and global community. Each one of us is a role model whether we like it or not. Your role is to do right by others. Granted we will mess up and make mistakes but its through those times when teaching moments are important.
Doing right means doing good and being good.
When one makes a mistake it always sucks. I realize no one is perfect but you know that it can impact how people see you. We are only human and therefore imperfect and flawed as individuals. You have to learn and move on from it all.
I have a co-worker who gets frustrated by technology and how fast things are changing. Everyone knows that as soon as one phone is released its just going to get replaced by a newer model a year later. Technology is something that has planned obsolescence as a part of the whole business model.
Market forces cause decision makers to make hard choices in the future of their products. What we want now might not be what we want later. It’s important to be adaptable and fluid in life especially when it comes to devices. Even the very software and hardware that connects us can change rapidly and often times in a surprising way.
Being able to learn new things is vital to keeping us all relevant to what is happening today. Tomorrow is always upon us and we have to be ready because what is cutting edge today could be out of date in a minute or two. As tech changes so does the times because we have gone from a Blockbuster Video world to a Netflix world. Everyone likes things in an instant today. Streaming is everything isn’t it. We even shop differently. Thanks Amazon.com for your click to order and arriving on my doorstep the next day or so.
I think the key thing we have to remember is that the source code for everything is changing and we have to learn to keep up. This sort of change is something I don’t mind I just need to remind myself that I have to keep evolving and adapting as time goes by.
Sometimes work requires you to be a long burning wood while other times you have to be quick burning kindling. Either way you have to be on fire.
I am usually a easy-going, level-headed sort of bloke. These days I am navigating the waters of being angry/mad/pissed off. This is something I don’t have a lot of practice at. Without divulging the reasons for my emotions I am just trying to figure out what the hell I am doing. Keeping my cool is important as to not let things get out of control but like I said being mad is something I am figuring out. There is hurt and pain involved with being mad and I am used to those things. Someone suggested writing about it so I will be doing so but not for public consumption, just for me. Let’s see how things go.
Sometimes your best isn’t good enough in the grand scheme of things. You try and try and for some reason it doesn’t get things done. When the bar is set high you have to deal with expectations that are hard to reach. Being a human being you have your strengths and limitations and one outweighs the other. That is time when you realize you need to step back and realize what you can do vs. what you can’t do.
