The way things are, usually will have one sometimes go "huh?
This morning, I watched a group of professionals all basically have a big ole pow-wow of whose perspective is right while they even threw in some behaviors more akin to kindergarten. I kept my mouth shut and watched as each one had a piece of something very right, each had a piece of the perspective that was a bit out of focus and off balance. Everyone was a bit right, everyone was a bit incorrect. what you seemed to see were fragments of an overall image that was in focus from the broad perspective, but if you were inside the image, you only saw one tiny piece.
Instead of thinking about discussing issues with vertical farms, the bizarre social interaction had me running solutions ideas for the Augmanity dynamics controller in my mind. I guess it is a strange progression in that the control system we used for the big show, which cost a great deal of money 15 years ago, can actually be built inexpensively (relative is a good word) and we can use the same basic premise for a different use in looking at people.
I know we are all supposed to get along, build teams and relationships, yet, when you come from a skunkworks environment, the rules of how slow the world works with people getting on the same page, everyone wanting all the information, fewer actually wanting to do the work to put the packages together. If you have a skunkworks, you many time smile in that you have the capability to simply just go build the idea and test it in less time that it takes for all the meetings to happen to agree to agree, or disagree.
But how will mass change actually happen? In many respects we are a bit of an illusion in that we don’t take the time to stop, look inward and see what’s there. Most of the time we are looking outward and our inward self is so bombarded with noise from various sources, we seem to become deaf to looking at self.
There were two interesting things I came across yesterday. One was an old Japanese judo master accepting challenges from high-ranking students. I marveled at how tuned the old man was to his self, heart and the surroundings he was in.
The second is an interesting video about some Thai Buddhist monks. It always amazes me of the similarities in how the Christian ascetics and the Buddhist monks seem to live.
May the videos in some way be of profit to your day? I have to go crank out some new logos fro my brother in law and then set up the cameras so that when the excepted sun rises tomorrow (sans fog) I can finally get the images I see in my head. Then i sketch up some models for the Lab test farm, mock up the new modules with Augmanity, and model some ideas for another friends interesting idea. no shortage of ideas, just a limit of time.
