As a businessman, business owner, partner, and board member many times it is easy to let your logic get clouded with your own thoughts.
Many times it is beyond beneficial for you to disconnect from yourself and connect to another. Perhaps take another perspective or take another look at something from someone else’s point of view.
Continually try to instill in yourself to view something from another perspective.
A little bit of respect for someone else’s opinion and the circumstances around someone else’s feelings can go a long way.
Many times it even provides you with more solidification one way or another!
Currently, if you haven’t heard there’s a little rain storm named Irma that’s ripping a new asshole in the south-eastern United States. Most of the state of Florida was evacuated, and now this little gem has been “downgraded” from a hurricane to a tropical storm. Bullshit. I know.
As a current Atlanta resident and native to this salad bowl of diversity and shit, there is one thing the south-east has not done well at all. Prepare for natural occurances such as snow, rain, storms, etc.
A light drizzle of rain stops traffic like a monsoon. A snowflake causes mass chaos like a blizzard. You get the picture.
Atlanta is currently in a state of emergency for the most recent tropical storm Irma that is pounding down on us with rain and wind. It’s laughable to take is sincerely when almost every natural occurance in the south-east calls for a state of emergency because we aren’t prepared to wipe our own asses.
We are looking for book recommendations for our annual business summit!
Recommendations would be appreciated! Please share!!
This past weekend we took our families out on the lake for a nice long weekend to simply cap off the summer in one last big bash. Here in the South though, there is this thing called “fall break”, which is honestly a bullshit school holiday where teachers and student get to take time off before a month and half of crunch time.
While on the lake you see all of the typical individuals you would expect. Everyone there is broken up into these categories…
- Successful men that bought a family boat for their families to enjoy
- Men that over-finances a boat for their families to enjoy
- Rednecks that bought something for themselves to enjoy
- Rental boaters who simply want to trash what everyone else has worked hard for
Labor day in itself has always been something that I have perceived as a nice break at the end of summer to celebrate some nice grind-time at the office. The first 3 categories of these boaters, i can say in some form or fashion do deserve to celebrate labor day….
There is one group of these boaters who simply are parasites and they always seems to be consistently the same types of people. The rental boaters are typically showing up with a group of about 8-16 individuals to rent a boat that can legally hold 7 people. The result is now two watercraft that have idiots driving them. Now, i understand some of you may be thinking why i call them such things, but when you show up to rent a boat and you’re sucking on a pacifier and you’re in your early 20’s…. You have no leg to stand on.
Typically, on the lake there’s the experienced boaters and then these rental folks who ruin it for everyone who come out rolling on molly with their 1-hitters in their pockets like they’re going to a 311 concert. I can appreciate both of those things, but when those things can cause harm to my family or put my family in danger, you can go fuck yourself.
It seems like every fucking weekend there’s the same TYPE of people showing up to rent boats, the same type of people who do not respect themselves to even begin respecting others, or other people’s property.
If they don’t respect themselves, how the hell can you expect them to respect someone else’s property or be mindful of someone else’s life?
