The Power You Don’t Have [Game of Thrones s06 e10 Finale]

Unless you have a ring that turns you invisible, leave dragons alone.

Delusional Peasants

The Game of Thrones season 06 finale was well-written.

The writers spoke to something that I’ve wanted to say for a long time, but didn’t have a concrete way to put it until I saw it play out in this episode.

This episode had instance after instance after instance after instance of people thinking they had power that they never had and finding out that they didn’t have that power.

This is where a lot of people trip themselves up IRL (In Real Life). They believe in the power they don’t have.

Part of this is because of the Loser Society that we’re currently experiencing.

Everybody wants to act like people are equals, when we are not.

Everybody wants to act like winners don’t get or even DESERVE more than losers.

So you have people who attempt to claim the spoils of the winners even though they’re actually losers.

When they see other losers such as themselves get away with this, they figure they can do it too and try their luck walking the tightrope between high-rise buildings.

Halfway across….. A gust of wind pushes them off the rope and they realize that they actually needed *SKILL* to do what they were trying to do without killing themselves.

Skill they don’t have.

Meanwhile, a lot of people are serfs who are allowed free reign over “their” land until their actions run afoul of what THE KING wanted them to do, and then they get wiped out, replaced, and more serfs work that land as if the first set was never there.

That easily-replaced set of serfs perceives themselves as kings because they think that they’re self-governing.

They’re approximately as autonomous as the fish in your fishbowl.

Sure.. All the fish have to do is swim around, eat fish food, play tag with each other, look at the humans on the other side of the glass… But the human is providing their entire world. The human paid for the tank. The human pays for the electricity that runs to the tank. The human buys the food. The human puts the food in the tank.

That same human, if properly provoked, will scoop you out of that bowl and flush you down the toilet. Continue reading “The Power You Don’t Have [Game of Thrones s06 e10 Finale]”

The Ability To Be Insulted

For some of you, those aren’t haters. Those are honest people pointing out that you suck.

As our society spirals towards the bottom, I’ve noticed that incredible and ever-increasing numbers of people swear that they have “haters”.

For some of you, those aren’t haters. Those are honest people pointing out that you suck. Continue reading “The Ability To Be Insulted”

2016 Alliances & Partnerships

Sometimes, it isn’t the best thing to be the smartest person in the room.

Sometimes, it isn’t the best thing to be the smartest person in the room.

This is where consulting, business partnerships, and other sorts of teamwork come into play.

Even when you have the right idea for yourself, your consideration of the situation may be limited by what you know about yourself.. The personal limitations you know you have.

Adding one or more other people to the equation does way more than double your abilities now that there are two people involved.

The other person comes to the table with his or her life, personal, and business experience, none of which YOU HAVE! ๐Ÿ˜€

The other person comes to the table with equipment that they spent their money on that you didn’t.

I’ve seen the future… It’s creating alliances and partnerships in 2016. Continue reading “2016 Alliances & Partnerships”

Lose To Win (Cain’t Get Thar From Heuh)

Some people don’t recognize that the person they’re dating is a liability.

As a progressive person, meaning someone that strives to make progress every day towards being a better person by tomorrow than they are today, and for whom that’s practically 100% of how my days go, you can reach a situation where you can’t win any more by pressing forward with the wins you currently have.

You have to give something up in order to open up a new pathway to your own future greatness. Continue reading “Lose To Win (Cain’t Get Thar From Heuh)”

Step Backward to Move Forward (Selective Neglect)

Whether you’re a 9-5’er or a freelancer, you want to have time set aside to learn new things.

I always advise people to leave themselves time for self-improvement.

What I mean by this is that whether you’re a 9-5’er or a freelancer, you want to have time set aside to learn new things.

This is because if your skills remain the same while your industry improves, you get left behind.

It’s also because you can’t change directions if all of your time is spent going in your current direction.

If you find yourself in a situation where you feel stagnant, or if not that, you feel like your current situation is hindering your ability to move forward, the solution may be to step backward instead of trying to maintain what you currently have going on and add to it. Continue reading “Step Backward to Move Forward (Selective Neglect)”

Untitled 60

There is a limit to being able to tolerate interacting with people who just plain suck as human beings.

At some point, I accepted the responsibility on an internet site to babysit a group of grown-ass men.

That isn’t what it started out as, but that’s what it turned into.

This is because the population changed from a group of guys and gals that had similar interests and a singular focus, as more and more people arrived just to be able to talk to somebody and not feel lonely anymore.

Also, a lot of these people came from another internet site, where the culture is to not say what your name is and then talk all kinds of trash about people because you know there won’t be any repercussions.

Those environments breed people into being negative creatures. They lose their sense of camaraderie. They lose their ability to gain pleasure from positive interaction. So long as they’re attempting to make someone else feel bad, they’re happy with themselves and snickering in their basements, or under whichever bridge their computer is located.

I wanted to mention that scenario because I learned something from it today. Continue reading “Untitled 60”

Overweight And Starving

Reader Charles mentioned on Facebook the other day that he was overweight. I found this ridiculous, because Charles isn’t overweight.

When I went to the link he posted, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_mass_index, I found out not only that Charles IS overweight, but so am I!!! ๐Ÿ˜› Continue reading “Overweight And Starving”

Time And Productivity

Let’s Get It In!

It’s currently 5:45 am and I’m writing a blog post. “Why is that? o_O” you might ask. It’s because I just woke up and my mind is CRISP!!! >:D .. Firing on all cylinders. Ready For Action.. Kickin’ Ass and Takin’ Names.

I had this conversation with my friend Jeff the other day. He was saying that it takes him a long time to get started once he wakes up, but as time goes on, he gets more and more productive, until it gets to the point where he doesn’t want to go to sleep because his brain is working so well and he’s getting so much done.

Of course.. That’s probably why it’s tough for him to put it together when he wakes up.. Because his mental activity and productivity overrides some sort of natural sleep initiative, and he ends up sleeping at the wrong times (for his own personal body cycles).

What About The Proletariat? [Time, Part 11]

Reader “Justin” asked me what I thought about Net Neutrality the other day, and my response was basically “Not Much”.

His question and the ensuing conversation reminded me of a broader topic, which is “What about the proletariat?”:

The proletariat (from Latin proletarius, a citizen of the lowest class) is a term used to identify a lower social class; a member of such a class is proletarian. Originally it was identified as those people who had no wealth other than their children.
