    Looking Back, Looking Forward

    Listening to some Dire Straits, I figure I might as well go down to the water line… ;)

    This year has been tremendous! :D This year has been stupendous!! 8O This year has been a blast and a half!!!

    I won’t recount everything, mostly because I don’t want to embarrass everyone. :P I will stop with the stupid smileys, though — in case you’re almost ready to pull out all of your hair ;) )….

    I choose to highlight one thing in particular: My friend Ted Ernst Sarvata‘s new podcast, the Purpose Podcast. I’ve been listening since he started it this past summer, and now I think I’ve figured out one of my purposes in life: To get people out of the way — of each other, and also out of the way of other forms of life. I have been deeply influenced by very many very smart people in this… and it was not a completely straightforward insight (at least not for me), and so I’d like to explain my thinking at least a little bit… or at least I’d like to try to do that!

    So here goes: There are (surpise, surprise!) some people who are simply letting their badness run wild, they don’t seem to be able to reign it in, and they make life difficult for us nice guys! I simply want to get them out of the way.

    One of the people who has influenced my thinking is entirely unknown to me. This person wrote an article titled: “Why I’m Not a Leader (and Why You Shouldn’t Be Either)“. I hope Sean Werkema will get a trackback (and maybe even sign up / join TAGSEO — and I also think you should join, too!).

    I think Sean put it very well, and whatever school turned him down must have too many too conservative thinkers to be a place to learn some new tricks!

    For Ted, I would add that I now guess that the Wisdom of the Language is probably a tool to achieve this purpose — but I am not sure. Maybe someday we can chat on the phone, and if he can record it, he can ask me questions and I could try to give somewhat coherent answers and/or explain something that still seems to be stuck in my brain as if it were molasses or some other strange gooey syrup.

    Brands are Real-World Manifestations of Corporate Ego

    Why are strong corporate brands prized, but strong individual egos despised?

    Ego

    How to mash up the Serenity Prayer with a little humility 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ta/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    I have never really liked the serenity prayer, but primarily because the logic seems wrong in the way it is often quoted (there are some things which I do not feel able to accept, but also do not feel I ought to change). Niebuhr’s original quote, however, is quite clear:

    God, give me grace to accept with serenity
    the things that cannot be changed,
    Courage to change the things
    which should be changed,
    and the Wisdom to distinguish
    the one from the other.

    I wonder: Do I wish to receive this wisdom to be able to distinguish things that are undoubtedly right from undoubtedly wrong? Will courage enable me to change things I “ought” to change? These and many more similar questions are problematic for me.

    But presently, I am most of all aware that there are many things I do not understand. To me, Niebuhr’s quote seems to imply that this might be God‘s fault (for not giving me the adequate wisdom). On the other hand, if I were to feel as though God had indeed given me such wisdom, then I might be empowered to judge over other people, things, ideas, etc. — which I do not actually wish to do.

    I do not feel as though I know anything — so maybe this quote is simply not meant for me, or I am simply too feeble-minded to be able to understand it.

    When the whole world is reading, the whole world is writing, will anyone still be wronging?

    I am a big advocate for transparency, but I have also long been burdened by the weight of my past decisions — “if only I woulda…”.

    I have been writing for years, but my children will probably end up writing more over the course of their lives than I did will over the course of mine. Their children may even have every step recorded, every “mistake” written on their wall in plain view for all.

    Humanity must increasingly come to terms with the hard to deny fact that humans are not exactly as supreme as we might have traditionally been predisposed to believe.
