If you stand for nothing don’t expect my respect

I keep my politics to myself. Although, I am a fierce advocate. When I put my mind to a cause I will work and fight hard. Everytime I have been happy at a job, it was because there was a larger cause than just the immediate metrics. I believe in numbers, accountability, and performance measurement. One needs to prove impact as it cannot just be high ideas with no real outcome. For some people a job is just a job. And, that is ok. But what about when you are at the supermarket, movie theatre or the circus? You are always embedded in a context and in a particular point in time. You are always part of something bigger. As such, you should stand for something.

  1. I stand for a lot of things, but it has only been recently that I have allowed myself to express some of these thoughts publicly.

    Authors are warned not to publicly go after politics and religion, because it may lose them readers. But I have decided that the readers it might cost me to be more outspoken are readers I don’t want. Ever. I don’t even want them reading my words that can be purchased in a public place.

    I’m still not going to make a big deal about it, and I’ve avoided large groups my entire life, but it is a time in history where NOT taking a stand against the despots of the day is exactly the same as being on their team.
