Less Is More…More or Less.

Let your yes be yes and your no, no. My attempt to say more while not.

Scales of War

The difference between scales of the term “World War” (whether literal or figurative) can be measured by the management and resolution of situations and circumstances. Individual, corporate or national initiatives become paramount(s) of timing, similar to how quickly a performance car can move from 0-100mph.

Suffice to say;

if everyone took care of their own personal space first, it would be much easier for people to help their neighbors, who if they did the same, most likely wouldn’t need much help

Thus, anything resembling the scale of “World War” would be greatly diminish.

Damage, collateral or otherwise, not so devastating, on whatever level(s) it may exist.

However, we only understand the reference to World War as evidence that this skill can be difficult to master, particularly when selfish ambition and pride has exalted itself above the great commandment, to love our God with your heart and then our neighbor as yourself.

 

 

What Have We Really Learned…Obviously, Not Enough

What are we teaching in grades K-12, that afterwards, people still need to take career classes/counseling, some degree of college or certification program, or general job training classes, skills and interest assessments, resume and interviewing skill, productivity, organization, money management, leadership…the list goes on. No wonder, education @ any level is so expensive. The stuff we need to know as an adult, we don’t learn until we’re adults.  And thanks to texting, most of us have forgotten our grammar manners, particularly spelling…not to mention, most of our manners, in general.What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown?

Lessons From Top Gun

#1: Don’t “lose it”. You’ll give your spot to the next guy in line. God forbid, the spot your forfeit is #1

#2: Don’t let your ego over-commit your abilities. It may cost you your life.

#3. Whatever you do, do it better and cleaner than “the other guy.”

#4. There’s a dangerously fine-line, that if pushed to far, your ability to make friends decreases. At the very least, you won’t be liked.

#5. If you don’t evaluate what’s happened, you can’t apply what should be learned.

#6. Don’t be (or do) stupid. Most phone calls from the Defense Department are left to be desired.

#7. Alcoholic beverages may not be the best thing for putting out a fire.

#8. Don’t quit your day job…not at least until whatever you wearing trying to do is impressive enough to result in, “You should do that instead”, rather, than “Don’t ever do that again”. People and potential romantic interests may worry.

#9. Do not fire until fired upon. In other words, be careful in your actions and more careful in your reactions.

#`10. Fancy does not build trust…regardless of the governments thoughts on the matter. Most people require more.

PS: My thought and prayers go out to the Scott family. I didn’t see the reports circumstances regarding his passing, until I was browsing through the related articles section.
