Misery loves company.

Maybe you've noticed that negativity travels in a pack looking to consume everything in its path?

Maybe something you haven't noticed is this; negativity is like dog shit. You can step in it, not notice, and take that shit all the way home. Before you know it, it's in the car, your carpet and your bedroom. And, just like negativity, everyone in the house is stuck with the shit you've brought into the house.

Police negativity. Police the shit out of it. You can fucking police everything in life. Take a good hard look at what adds value to your existence, and what subtracts from it. This is life, and business 101: If you're not ahead, or at least breaking even, you've got some shit to fix before you go under. You can only run at a deficit for so long until something breaks.

But, you know what's hard? Walking away. Not engaging. Misery & negativity love feedback. In your head, a certain comeback might sound vicious, the best thing you've ever thought of.

However, the best thing is silence. Silence helps recalibrate those things that really matter. Silence is the answer to every negative stimulus.

You get a personal delete button, from the index finger - and that guy is looking at the whites of your eyeballs.

No one cares about...

Weak leadership is a cancer.
Weak leadership is a cancer.

This risk adverse approach is a result of fearful and weak leadership, where policy and planning are driven by fear their of public opinion courtesy of a rotten mainstream media platform. Any organisation that has any form of conflict at its pointy end should be driven to support the end-user. None deserve a frail egocentric leader who is fearful of answering some difficult questions, all of which have very simple answers.

This weakness from policy makers and commanders spreads like a cancer and infects every single individual below them...

Little key, heavy door
Little key, heavy door

March 04, 2020

The consistent application of basic training principles is the little key. The heavy door is whatever your reason is for training the first place. Every locked door opens easily with the right key. You can hard-knock the bastard, breach your way through and get what you need. But in terms of longevity, that door is cactus.
