Small Today, Significant Tomorrow

It is very unfortunate that we tend to associate the butterflyeffect mostly to weather. Humans are affected equally with the butterflyeffect. Managers and leaders need to grasp the extensibility of this effect tothe human domain. This buzz is an...

Dear Deb馃悵 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee- I have just commented on your buzz of today. You know by now that I trust completely what you say here. You are correct. It is in taking small steps that we may eventually have a great change happening. If we go too fast we might miss the real value of change. It is like the logistic equation- if we go very fast we lose seeing the steps in between. I couldn't agree more with you.

please don鈥檛 misunderstand the limbic response is a response method and does apply SOMETIMES. It should be in consideration But each response is sure to follow with one from the other. The choice of limbic will not garner a Christmas card. Be prepared Another saying was. Don鈥檛 let ur mouth write checks ur but can鈥檛 cash.

Again, this is sheer brilliance Harvey Lloyd. I consider your comment one of the best I have read over the last few years. I couldn't disagree with you. You remind me of the way I deal with angry people. I wrote about it before, but your comment urges me to share my experience here again. You wrote "I find it typically is better to allow them top run out of energy and come back to the purpose at hand". This is exactly my approach with angry people. Let me give first three analogies" 1- never add water to hot sulfuric acid; the opposite is valid. 2- never pour hot oil on cold water. The opposite is safer. 3- When a hot wave runs into a cold wave we have turbulent weather. In the three examples above we never add the hot (angry) person to a cool person. It is far better to let the angry person to vent out his anger till he cools down. Then we may add him to the discussions. You are a great thinker my friend.

The Crux of Your Problem: The Look, No-Look Moment

There is this phenomena that you go through when you look at a situation that is uncomfortable and then instantaneously not-look at it.You sort of bounce off of what you are looking at. You look at the condition and then not-look at it in almost the...

Each moment of an incident connects instantly to the next moment, if we are not attentive to a few moment, then we miss part of the content that results in absence of mind

Freezing Friday Funday

Freezing Friday Funday

At least once every winter, there are more snow-themed memes than I can count out on the Internet, so I need to use them up. We've been relatively lucky here in the northeast part of the U.S. -- we haven't had too much snow -- yet. But it's well...

The funniest/ most annoying thing it the UK when we have snow, and the Authorities are asked to explain why roads closed, weren't adequately salted etc., part of the answer is often it was the wrong sort of snow. Perhaps we need to call on the Innuites, who have countless words to describe snow, to help make the right preparation for the downfalls. We have a similar situation when the Autumn leaves on the tracks, make it difficult for the trains to get traction. The answer has been to why it wasn't possible to clear them quickly they were the wrong sort of leaves.

Ken Boddie I actually thought of you the other day in the middle of a demonstration by one of our art professors. She has been working on some unique art of the Konza and the Tall Grass Prairie ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jy21uSG3ma8 If you don't do anything else watch this excerpt as it describes the region I live in) and she was explaining to some degree she was trying to capture the aboriginal approach and ability to tell a story. In this case through art and print. The art is simply beautiful. I was with some really smart people yet the phrase associated with the art of story telling remained illusive. You know, one of those things that it is just on the tip of everyone's tongue, but it just doesn't materialize. I just piped up and said, wasn't that where the phrase "walk about" came from, the telling of stories while walking with nature? Yep, score one for the dumb retired jar head. Keep making a difference. :)

Ken Boddie agreed. Yet we seem perpetually stuck in the yin and yang of it all: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@joel-anderson/the-yin-and-yang-of-water-food-energy-population-climate Would love to see folks like Richard B and Dick S step up, and in some respects they do but we just keep plugging the same story. A couple years back I sat in on the unveiling of a documentary about water, climate etc..."When The Well Runs Dry," They had a panel of experts that answered questions at the end. One was the guy that put the documentary together, one a scientist actually working the problem, and one a PhD in literature. At the end, I asked this question to the scientist: "If we know there are issues, if the data is so irrefutable, then why do we keep getting sucked in to the yin and yang of it all?" His response, Well we don't tell the story very well. Now I am not a good writer, but I will tell you this. On another platform, Sir Richard posted about things similar to this just the other day. So I tagged his name and sent him this manifesto just to make a point. No illusions that Richard will see it let alone read the ramblings but gosh wouldn't it be nice if we could just break through the status quo of it all.
