If you can’t see it, how can you make it better?

It doesn’t pay to say to the CFO: These numbers on the P&L aren’t true.

And arguing with Walmart or Target about your market share stats doesn’t work either.

You can’t make things better if you can’t agree on the data.

Real breakthroughs are sometimes accompanied by new data, by new metrics, by new ways of measurement.

But unless we agree in advance on what’s happening, it’s difficult to accomplish much.

If you don’t like what’s happening, an easy way out appears to be to blame the messenger. After all, if the data (whether it’s an event, a result or a law of physics) isn’t true, you’re off the hook.

The argument is pretty easy to make: if the data has ever been wrong before, if there’s ever been bias, or a mistake, or a theory that’s been improved, well, then, who’s to say that it’s right this time?

“Throw it all out.” That’s the cowardly and selfish thing to do. Don’t believe anything that makes you look bad. All video is suspect, as is anything that is reported, journaled or computed.

The problem is becoming more and more clear: once we begin to doubt the messenger, we stop having a clear way to see reality.

The conspiracy theories begin to multiply. If everyone is entitled to their own facts and their own narrative, then what exists other than direct emotional experience?

And if all we’ve got is direct emotional experience, our particular statement of reality, how can we possibly make things better?

If we don’t know what’s happened, and worst of all, if we can’t figure out what’s likely to happen next, how do take action?

No successful organization works this way.

It’s impossible to imagine a well-functioning team of people where there’s a fundamental disagreement about the data.

Demand that those you trust and those you work with accept the ref’s calls, the validity of the x-ray and the reality of what’s actually happening. Anything less than that is a shortcut to chaos.

Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 93

Note 1: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains months-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Note 2: If you are Not tri-lingual, you will stumble on Arabic notes, written in Latin characters and with numbers representing vocals Not available in Latin languages.

Learn to retain your freedom, born with it? How to go about it

Daesh (ISIS) is being defeated hands down in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, but winning in Europe: The European are falling into the trap of terrorism they exported to our region and banning civil rights and liberty

I am in the position to ask, ‘What can you bring to the table?’ I need someone who is striving for excellence to improve and continually be recipient to changes.

I need conversation and mental stimulation. I don’t need a simple-minded man. I don’t need to be unequally yoked

Rothschild-controlled British Barings (bank) bankrolled the Chinese opium and African slave trades.  It financed the USA for Louisiana Purchase from Napoleon who needed liquidity for his war on England.

Cultivation theory? TV one-sided immersion power makes you view the world as far more dangerous than it is. Any scary event close to home drastically changes your perception.

It helps to be able to see the world as it is from internet social interactions and comments in order to vote properly. Take good care of your inputs.

“Individualism is a recent expression, a reflective and tranquil sentiment achieved by creating a smaller community (modern tribe) for his use. He gladly leaves the larger society to take care of itself” Alexis de Tocqueville

An epic speech by Syria president Bashar Al Assad. (Direction toward the east, Ila al sharq dorr. Until western governments learn to treat other societies on equal human rights terms

You may reserve a petanque patch at home for your invitees to play. You may end up inviting people whom make you feel relaxed to play with, Not their company.

Aussi longtemps que l’ homme garde en lui de l’ espace, il garde la Difference

Si je n’ etais pas, Dieu ne serait pas non plus. Ce n’ est pas necessaire que l’ on comprenne

USA/Israel can plan for the long-term, but their arrogance in the last 3 decades robbed them from the capacity to sustain it.

USA/Israel are scared shit of Iran because it demonstrated the determined capacity to sustain long-term strategies against current obstacles and sustained campaign of “denigrement” (heaping on them all kinds of evil behavior)

Can you resume fighting, with the same abstract zeal, after you were squarely militarily defeated, surrendered and negotiated for your life and potential freedom?
Iran has infused to Hezbollah of Lebanon this patient capacity to sustain long-term strategy consequences against short-term impatient reactions that the world community is pressuring it to behave accordingly.
It is a matter of forcing face-to-face communication and negotiation with extremist factions after each military operation that is allowing Hezbollah and Syrian army to overcome these terrorists abstract zeal and advance quickly on the ground
Defeating the abstract zeal of the enemy (extremist factions) is the name of the game: Forcing face-to-face communication through negotiation after military successes.
On est dans une periode ou seule la mort fait evenement, tout le reste n’ est que banque et jurisprudence
Dans le desarrois, l’ homme dit qu’ il est le genre qui sait aimer, et que les femmes ne font que du theatte, et vice versa
Aussi, dans les periodes de deprimes, l’ homme pense qu’ il n’ y a que misere, violence et negociation, tandis que les femmes vivent avec exaltation ou deception. Et vice versa. C’ est une affaire de frequence d’occurrence
Si les evenements vous coupe le souffle, il y a toujours des professionels qui jouent a dedramatiser et a deposseder ces evenemnts de leurs poids, pour vous permettre de souffler.
Ce n’ est pas une mort humaine quand le mourant, sans energy, abandonne mentalement, avec indifference totale l’agitation de la vie.
C’ est bon signe pour une societe’ quand la critique affecte les auteurs: preuve qu’ ils existent des gens pensants qui font le metier de critiques litteraires
Les gens de “la bas” (les Slaves) savent etre abrute honnettement dans la verite’ de leurs misere comme dans la jalousie
Obama and Hillary should eventually stand trial at La Hague for creating ISIS in 2013 and supporting it to occupy Raqqa and Mosul
This duo of criminals against humanity: Obama and Hillary created ISIS. Excuse? Iraq refused USA to have permanent military forces on its land
You may be humble, if the reader senses boasting, he may well appreciate your piece, but never express or share his liking. A matter of lack of self-confidence
Khalleh Allah 3ala janab. Moush deryaan fiyyeh wa moushma2ez min ehmalo
Follow the money trail Mr. President. Let the investigation start with this gold thread to unravel the Truth on these infamous leaders who got richer on the blood of the countless martyrs and suffering of the relatives.
If the investigation, on the capture of soldiers made hostages by ISIS while the army was capable of liberating them in 2014 in Ersaal, and slaughtered in 2015 without the courage to relaying this information to their parents and relatives, is going to dwell on the foreign pressures in our internal affairs, this Ball of Fire is going to balloon into a rolling Hill of fire.
