Throwing Out The Dirty Bathwater... Is The Baby In It? 

By Ange Fonce

In this ever more connected world of "communication"... are we "giving" and receiving "content" that is actually "useful" and of "benefit" to us?

Actually... what I am saying is... the "attitude" is becoming these days... 

"Throw enough bullshit against the wall... and some of it will stick." 

About 10% of what is "communicated" these days is "useful... beneficial" and "helpful" and even "genuine"... so much of the rest is just "bullshit" and "hype."

And most of us can only take so much "bullshit" before we "turn off" and "reject" everything.

Which would be a real shame... because it is a "mistake" to "fail" to do the hard work of "discerning" the "worthwhile" from the "deceptive."

The "problem" is... everything "worth doing" is usually done to excess... poorly... immorally... inefficiently by someone who "bullshits" in the race to the bottom... and that does not "change the fact" that the very same thing that is worth doing... is being done with "quality... value... benefit" and "excellence" by those who "work to the top."

One way we "make sense" of the world is to put things into "categories"... and to "label those categories"... the "mistake" we often make again and again is in picking the "incorrect categories"... or "assuming" and giving them easy and "inaccurate labels." 

We do not need to tar a whole "category" because of "sleazy people" who are racing to the bottom.... they deserve their own category... "selfish bullshitters"... because there can be people in the same category... who are "giving" great "value... quality" and "excellence!" 

Just as we do not "benefit" by "writing off" anyone based on their "appearance style... gender style... skin style... life style" or other easy and useless labels.

When we are "actively inclined" to really do something... we "rarely" let the "crappy actors"... the "bullshitters"... get in the way. 

People do not say... 

"Some cars are poorly made... and so I am never going to buy a car."

"Some money is counterfeit... and so I am not going to accept cash."

"Some men are horrible... and so I will never go near all men."

"Some women are horrible"... and so I will never go near all women."

The thing is... if you are going to "label" people and organizations by "what they do"... by their "actions" that "benefit" others... and not by what they "look like" or what they "call themselves"... the more we "reward" the "behaviours" we "admire... value" and "respect"... the less likely the "selfish bullshitters" will be able to take "advantage" of our "labelling errors" by dragging us all down into the race to the bottom with them.

And... when we "invest time" to "discern" the "excellence" of the "individual... group... organisation" that gives and provides "real value... benefit" and "quality" that changes the world... then it "changes us" when we engage with its "excellence" and work to the top!

So be sure you do not throw out the baby with the dirty bathwater... you may just be throwing away "real quality"...  when you "judge... assume" and "discriminate" by "labels!"

Thank you and may you enjoy a Prosperous and Dynamic day!

The Race To The Bottom The Struggle To The Top 

By Ange Fonce

There will always be two paths chose from. 

There is the path to the bottom... based on giving as little value at all costs... that says... 

"I have what they have... yet cheaper." 

The problem with that path to the bottom is... that you will win.

The other path to the top is a far harder way and it is to provide GREAT VALUE for what people want... regardless of how far away they come from... because the VALUES you embody are worth seeki...
