Are You tired of fighting against Your environment?
Do You feel surrounded by idiots?
Are “they” all against You?
Well, I experienced this very often.
And yes, I admit, my closest personal environment is still filled with such a mindset.
It is a normal attitude, but does not lead very far.
So, what can You do about this situation?
Love it – change it – leave it.
Guess, what I offer You in the following lines …
Importance is subjective. Just like urgency.
“important” is an attribute, someone tags at a topic.
Therefore, actions and their results are not “important”, “good” or “bad” at all.
It is the intention behind what makes a result important, suitable or cruel.
The result inherits these tag attributes from intensions of an actor or the perspective of the spectator.
To judge a result, You need to examine the context.
So, the Eisenhower-Matrix as an example, is nothing You can apply for or inherit from others.
You can develop a meaning together with others in a team.
This is what You do by determining the polygonal solution area and iteration’s solution-fragment on the red path of the up2U-protocol.
/wars on attention
Most (all?) clashes and conflicts arise from a divergent understanding of importance.
What matters most to one doesn’t bother the other.
High explosives in conflict fuel: the world is as my perception of it.
“It is as I see it!”
Some results of an action is not wanted in some context.
Take death of a person as an illustrious example.
In European culture, You tend to say “this is unwanted at all”.
But, if You are living in the U.S. or China? It depends …
If You are living in Switzerland? It depends …
If You are in war for the good cause? It depends …
There are stories of people who killed others just to get executed without committing suicide.
Murders committed by life-sick.
Well, this was the time where suicides went to hell – they believed.
There were no serious doubts about mental health of those persons – those days.
All this does not change anything about the result.
The seven years old brother-in-law of one delinquent was dead and still is.
This story is one of many incidents that lead to a change of mind – very slowly.
Once there in Hamburg. Beginning in the 17th century.
Others are still on their way on finding answers.
Judge a result by its intention.
The bare occurrence of something is just data. Fact.
You need context to determine whether it is correlation, a causal result, random or something complete different.
You distinguish by examining from actor to action to result (why-how-what).
And if there is a result visible, only, it is very hard to determine intention of the actor. Can be, must not …
/how to improve the world
So, be careful by throwing aggression against Your environment.
People might just not know anything about Your mission.
They do not know about Your understanding of some topics – until You express it.
And so You do.
You can change all this by doing in public.
Or by making it public after You did (like I do with my blog articles).
Now, Your environment gets a chance to react on You.
You will find some relatives in mind that support You and others turn away to avoid Your way.
In the end, everything will be great. And if it is not great, it is not the end.
Results matter the most.
But, results have additional results in result. 😉
Some name that complexity or “interdependencies of all”.
You can influence results by heading to the source – the actor and his or her intention.
Do that straight-away instead of complaining results that might be unsuitable for You but nobody intended, because nobody knows about You and Your intentions.
Think out loud!
Do it in public.

- Work out Loud (German)
- Something complete different
Life runs in circles. Some are smaller, some are bigger.
In the end, there is no end – only another beginning.
Enjoy, and share what You like. Feel free to make life great by doing so!
