I think I just made up the term “the gap” to rationalize the distance between someone who truly knows and understands their skills versus someone starting out on the same distance. usually, it is the inexperienced that does not realize how big the gap is between what needs to be done and how to do it. there is saying, “those that do play, those that don’t coach or teach.”
there is no criticism meant in the last sentence, it is just that I found those that really are skilled seem to have a natural or intrinsic understanding of how to do something. they don’t really need much explanation, rather they need guidance to maximize the performance of some item.
then I was around people who really didn’t have some sort of talent in doing, yet, they truly understood the process or the way things should operate at a larger level. these usually make great teachers and coaches that could get people to work on adjustments and improvements to make everything better.
what usually was required by both, is a discipline or work effort to get something to grow. one didn’t have to explain every minute detail of how to do something very often.
perhaps this is what confuses me in the modern normal world. I see people spending a lot of time in some external makeup of self –but not a whole lot of folks challenging themselves. I am not sure if the capitalistic society like the united states pushes the idea of “you can become whatever you wish –if you are willing to pay the price.” whereas the European model is one more about civility and society behaving fairly well sans football match bad behavior.
all I know is there is a gap. what is the reality of it? usually not that much. be it a step, a second, a neuron or two firing faster….it really is not all that much. but what a wide chasm or difference it makes in putting a team of people together.
from a spiritual sense, we are all meant to help and work with each other. what I am seeing is that I don't’ think a lot of people really believe this or want to live this. it appears many think humanity acting the fool and obliterating anything different is just normal. some sort of game where one eats’ or is eaten, or survival of the fittest where individual fiefdoms of self, seem to consider life a competition of winner-take-all-sorts.
this is another form of the gap in humanity. repeating history is easier than changing the world for the better of more than oneself.
no clue what mumbo jumbo came out. I am sitting here in a coffee shop waiting for someone to show up for a meeting. what I fear is “normal” here is you have to remind everyone the place and time of their schedule.
all this does is make a really strong case to automate everything and minimize the need to rely on humans…but does this do much to close the gap in bringing humans closer? or does it make for a wider “gap?”
