Rules Are Neutral

Rules are neutral. There are not ‘bad laws’ as much as there are people with bad intentions (or just bad people) making laws designed to hold back certain groups of people.

Some of these laws are designed to be bad for everyone on purpose. The genius of their drawing and passing is that the group meant to elevate can overcome the disadvantage in a reasonably simple fashion. It is not easy or nearly impossible to overcome for the group meant to suffer a disadvantage.

Unfair rules are meant to not be followed. Bad laws are meant to be changed for the better.

It is not a matter of right or wrong, but timing and power, as in who has the power at the right time to make the change.

And Now It Is Really Time To Step The Game Up

Simone Biles is out of the Women’s Gymnastics Team Final for the Tokyo Olympics.

There is confusion as to whether her pulling out is based on something physical or mental.

Biles is not done yet for the Olympics. She can still compete in the Individual and the All-Around Competitions, if able.

I hope for a speedy recovery for Simone, for whatever may ail her at the moment.

And now that there is a sizable hole in who is expected to make an impact, I am really ready to see who steps up and attempts to take the open spot.

That’s why we tune in to watch after all.

Monday Message For 7/26/2021

Dictators who rule with an iron fist don’t last in positions of power long because the very people they lead always end up turning against them.

‘Welcome To Your Monday’ offers a quick, tweetable message every Monday morning to give you something to think about as you work into a new week, along with a 5-7 minute audio commentary that ‘goes deeper’ into the message of the week.


Multiples Of Zero Will Always Equal Zero

Before you can 10x or 2x or even 1x anything, you have to find a way to make x equal greater than zero.

That, like many other concepts that are tossed around like metaphorical Frisbees between people in the ‘entrepreneurial space,’ seems like a simple concept to ingest.

Of course, it can not be so simple.

Too many people have delusions of grandeur, visions of sugar plums, and mini bouts of insanity that are triggered by social media motivational candy.

Is being reminded to ‘rise and grind’ a bad thing? Not necessarily. Get up. Get up early to get a head start. Grind it out through the hard times to make it to the better times. What could be wrong with a message like that?

There is nothing wrong with a message like that. It’s listening to the same overly simplified message, a message with no real nuance, over and over.

Before you begin to book the two-week vacation at the luxury resort with your personal infinity pool, you need to sell a few things. Actually batches and batches of things, but until you sell a few things, you’ve got no baseline to start with.
