“Whenever serious and competent people need to get things done in the real world, all considerations of tradition and protocol fly out the window.” – The best books ever
Let’s not ask ‘why so serious?’ Let’s applaud seriousness. We don’t have to laugh our ways to the grave. We must get things done. We are here to get things done; that is why we have manifest in this plane of existence.
And how do we get things done? Competently. Competence means that we are aware of what the likely outcomes will be and can therefore improvise better based on what life throws our way.
It’s time to put our faith in the smartest people and no longer on those who are able to manipulate us best.
