- 26/07/2017My friend @Don 🐝 Kerr wrote a very inspiring piece on complacency that was purportedly inspired by something I wrote in a beezer-mail to @ Phil Friedman. In the spirit of returning the feeling, I was inspired to write this.
(Beezer mail is how Beezers communicate, and we do it quite often)
Comments26/07/2017 #7 Phil Friedman#6 Sandra, you have an irretrievably warped Millennial attitude. WhatsApp, indeed. And BTW, you don't need Outlook to have a group email chain, you just need to set up a "group" in your address book. Oh wait, is there a "WhatsaBook?" app?
Just kidding. You know I love you. :-)26/07/2017 #4 Phil FriedmanJim, I think most people believe what they want to believe -- which means they lie to themselves. And these days, it extends well beyond the BS of politics. For example, I just read a piece about Influencer Marketing which talks about the advantages of "establishing brand credibility" by hiring social media Influencers.
To my mind, that is pure double-speak. Bought credibility? What the author should have called it was "the APPEARANCE of credibility by hiring Influencers to lie about how much they like your product and respect and trust your brand." Yet the author of the article failed to distinguish between appearance and reality. And that is the foundation of the widespread lying and self-deception that goes on in our society today. IMO. Cheers!26/07/2017 #3 Phil Friedman#1 Well, Sandra, in this day and age of social media PM, Snapchat, and Instagram, Beezers are "mature" enough to remember how to use email (which superseded Snail Mail). It's called "group emailing". Now, I'm going to stroll down to the corner store -- if I can just remember where I left my walker. :-)

Comments26/07/2017 #27 Tausif MundrawalaI think leaders can't be define by a specific standard or benchmark like what we read about generals, military statesman, political leaders etc. Leaders are created by the circumstances which occur in front of them. How well they could strategize and execute their plans accordingly in order to fare well of the authority they are been presented by all agreed ones. Leaders are been created by the ones who have a shared goal and who all agree to make one among them the highest authority. My comment on the recent buzz of Sir @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee was basically on this aspect where in reality this small firm is doing well. Again an excellent buzz to reflect upon.26/07/2017 #26 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee@CityVP 🐝 Manjit has responded to this buzz in a great buzz that offers new insights. I urge readers of this buzz to read Manjit's buzz to expand on different perspectives. Here is the link to Manjit's buzz
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@cityvp/structure-space26/07/2017 #22 CityVP 🐝 ManjitDear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee instead of taking this thread off into a totally new tangent, I have written a Paradox Wisdom to parallel the thinking you have put forth in this buzz. That does not mean I challenge this, only that what i have written in "Structure and Space" is a totally different frame or reference point. See https://www.bebee.com/producer/@cityvp/structure-space26/07/2017 #19 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#13 Absolutely for very focused alignment means having one state and this means entropy is reduced and the possibility of spontaneity goes down. I always say we need spontaneous leaders to allow for the flow of many ideas that create many possibilities. You are spot on @Alan Culler26/07/2017 #18 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#12 Great comment @Sara Jacobovici. I love this idea ""available states". You know you have a great point here. Spontaneity occurs when we have negative free energy. This is Gibbs Free Energy. The other name for it is "Available energy". So, available states is in synchronicity with available energy. The available states increase entropy and the chances for spontaneity increases. You have put your fingers on a great idea. Write a buzz on this, please. You have a wonderful mind.25/07/2017 #13 Alan Culler@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and @Harvey Lloyd
While alignment is crucial for getting things done in organizations, extreme alignment can be the enemy of spontenaety and autonomy, both of which are required for innovation.
So how do leaders eschew the either/or world of extreme alignment?- " you're either with me or against me." How do leaders enter the both/and world that balances alignment and spontenaety - capitalizing upon the tendency of human systems to self-organize to the long term benefit of the organizations?25/07/2017 #12 Sara JacoboviciGreat perspective @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. The line which has left me thinking is: "Spontaneous reactions occur when a system loses energy to the surrounding and if the available states for the reactants increase." The part that is an eye opener for me is, "if the available states". My gut says, herein lies spontaneity; in the "if". Not knowing then is a precursor. Broken down even more, we find, "available states". This contributes to the unknown which leads to the spontaneity until the available states become known. What is interesting to explore is what makes a state available; what factors in the surround form that state? I think I will pause here Dr. Ali and wait for your feedback.25/07/2017 #11 Alan Culler@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
So many excellent ideas on this buzz and the comments that follow:
Alignment: Much of my work in the last 37 years had been called leadership alignment- getting a leadership team "on the same page" in implementing change. The secret to it is bringing th hallway discussion into the room - getting what you call a"alternate states" and Wilfred Bion called "pairing" into general discussion and resolution.25/07/2017 #9 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeWell, @Harvey Lloyd- motivating others to work with spontaneity is a way of storing energy in others. As for energy and thriving matrix - I love this coupling and makes a lot of sense to me.
"This moment in time decays from our original view into a evolving energy draw until such time as we can influence"- there is a huge idea in this line: energy evolving. This is a superb way to look at energy. Since we our bunch of energies and the tem evolving energy is new to me, but strikes my mind with its beauty.
You never stop amazing your readers with your penetrating comments25/07/2017 #8 Harvey Lloyd#7 The second law coupled with time would state that energy not used is depleted anyway. Yesterday's energy is gone. I don't believe as humans we can store the style of energy like plants.
Time is an opportunity to act within, once the time has decayed we cant use our energy in the same way. Nature offers us an opportunity to see the matrix of time, energy and thriving.
But nature lives from day to day, finding resources that exist within the time scale and not necessarily stirring, but fortifying their survival.
So as humans we should recognize that the energy of the moment we find ourselves will begin decaying as soon as we see or understand. This moment in time decays from our original view into a evolving energy draw until such time as we can influence.
Great points.25/07/2017 #7 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee"The petrol we placed in the car yesterday to afford us creativity and movement is now depleted, we must refill the tank today". Isn't this what we and plants do. The plants fill their energy tank with sunlight and store it for use when needed. Isn't that how plant prespirate? So, I agree agree fully with you @Harvey Lloyd. You are right and leaders who deplete their energies on side issues and store non-of it or who forget to fill their energy tanks shall decay. The leaders use energy to energize "influence the right parts of the organization" or waste it on risk-aversion and including the risk of leaders doing things by habit where they find their comfort zone.
To lead is to influence and not control. I say you influenced my mind, Harvey.

Comments26/07/2017 #29 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe Howard Beale references is interesting because in the movie Network he did get used. At the same time opening the window and screaming out "where as mad as hell and where not going to take it anymore" describes well the actions of voters in America - and that in turn speaks to an utter state of powerlessness of people who know something is awry but who have not been sufficiently educated to know what.
In the end Howard Beale helps the ratings of the news company, just as US corporate news media is raking in profits like never before. Yet there is signs that aside from the Comedy Network (which really should not be seen as a proxy for news) there are people who have a voice that transforms channel surfing clicks to decipherable opinion. The idea that we can scream out the world the very BS we see is one that is very endearing but it is no different to knocking out an a-hole with a single clean punch - as a Hollywood movie the script for the underdog come good is a well trodden one. In reality it is as effective as people who copy acts of self-immolation. What may raise consciousness when it is a novelty, makes people disinterested when they see the say same protest over and over and over again.
I too love the character of Howard Beale but hold these caveats. I am even more fascinated by the philosophical basis of Andy Kaufman's actions - where the audience themselves become the object, and he was not playing them, he had a philosophical view that was enacted and the humour was personal awareness in a world where awareness can be only skin-deep. http://www.openculture.com/2013/01/a_look_back_at_andy_kaufman_absurd_comic_performance_artist_and_endearing_weirdo.html26/07/2017 #28 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI will begin with this article about “Idiotes” (ΙΔΙΩΤΕΣ) - http://www.historydisclosure.com/what-does-idiot-mean/ View moreI will begin with this article about “Idiotes” (ΙΔΙΩΤΕΣ) - http://www.historydisclosure.com/what-does-idiot-mean/
Now such a compelling article is bound to be shared, but it only represents one particular viewpoint
Now I look at this one that explores a more nuanced view of how Ancient Greeks viewed the word "idiot"
The difference between the two pieces is the latter has a bibliography. The former uses a picture of three girls on a cell-phone and the relationship of that picture to the short post can draw out inferences.
Now layer on top the crazy political and media circus that has got worse each passing decade, it is now far removed from the challenging years of political drama played out in the 60's. The counter-culture movement that effectively responded to that, is now trying to respond to this.
Are we children of the 60's counter-culture challenging the existing world that is awash with opinion and noise or we adaptive to the political space of our time and is our politics capable of adapting to the transforming environment taking shape now?
Anyone with thinking mind and feeling heart is going to resonate with your poem. Yet I really don't know what I am as a political being, and how that may be different to being a political animal. Your buzz helps me direct my own questions and challenges I seek to learn from. I am living that but still mindful of the awful political environment Americans have voted for. Close25/07/2017 #14 Harvey LloydThe very nature of the post resolves to the fundamental question of self determination within a society or a rules/regulation based society where self determination is focused in a direction through elected officials.
Self direction involves evolution of ideas that peculate within the social community. When our constitution is made to evolve with money, social pressure and politics we all lose in the end.
Lies, BS and other attributes of a evolving society should correct through action within the community. This does invite some wild west thinking and these action also need to be addressed. The conundrum resides in how much authority do we give the rule makers? The more authority the less direct/indirect self determination we have. Where is that balance?
I am in agreement it is time for the majority to speak to our direction within the world and our subsequent survival.25/07/2017 #12 Joel AndersonBob Dylan Lyrics
"The Times They Are A-Changin'"
Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.
Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.
Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.
The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.

As far as the weight thing goes, I have to say, my weight is primarily a choice. I have never given myself permission to be grossly overweight. A lot of people really don't care how they look. I could easily be 40 lbs heavier, if I allowed it, but perhaps I'd never weigh 300 lbs. I am not sure how much stock I would actually place in those tests. My test results also revealed that my ring finger is likely longer than my index finger (it isn't) and that I don't have any dimples, but I actually do, and they aren't just in my ass! In fact, they were the most commented on trait of mine when I was a child.26/07/2017 #16 David B. GrinbergVery interesting, Kevin. I hear that a lot of people are also doing this via Ancestry. I suppose the only downside -- similar to personal data -- is allowing companies to keep your DNA samples which could be used in the future for other uses -- with some possible nefarious purposes like hypothetically selling to drug companies and health insurers, as one's genetic information can predict predisposition to certain illnesses and medical conditions. Just saying.

They look at your DNA in terms of your ancestry, health and physical traits. I always thought of myself as French, but apparently, my DNA is only 4% French and German. 64% of my DNA is actually British and Irish. What is even more interesting is that while my Neanderthal ancestry is less than 4% I am actually in the 83rd percentile among 23 and Me customers. Damn! That may explain a few things...
