Years ago, I developed training programs. One of the most valuable lessons I learned from one of the instructors was a simple strategy to find clarity. The strategy was so valuable that it could save someone from an angry explosion – which, in turn, could save a job….
On a dark and windy night, a lone figure, whose face we don’t see in the darkness, slips in through the back door of a house. A couple is sleeping upstairs in their bedroom.
Suddenly, the figure is at the couple’s bedside and a shiny knife appears. The camera cuts away to show the knife as it is wielded repeatedly, with blood spurting in the air. The couple has been hacked to death with the intruder’s knife.
…Now that’s a definition of “hacking” that I remember.
…Viewing the whole political circus as entertainment is one strategy for survival. Talk show hosts enjoy the ready stream of quotable points they can use for their monologues. …
Probably the most overused phrase I’ve heard lately is, “It’s complicated.”
The phrase is a tease. It’s also a cliché for what someone says who does not want to discuss an unpleasant piece of information.
