Things don’t move fast enough for me. In the face of irrefutable evidence, common sense and the correct set of answers handed over in big bold print, some people still deny reality. “I like my way…”, “This works fine…”, “It’ll dae…”, no it won’t. Sorry, NO IT WON’T.
I watched a nature programme yesterday about the Congo. A chimpazee was breaking open some nuts with a log, the log was a bit unweildy so it halved it and carried on in a much better fashion. Apparently some people are unable to take the same obvious actions. I’m worried that evolution will have apes and humans passing each other as culturally we travel in the opposite directions in the millenia to come.
It’s not just my usual unnecessarily heavy outdoor kit ranting, it’s customers, people in the street, newspapers, telly programme makers, people who should know better. I’m fed up with ill informed opinion, laziness, excuses, obstinateness, pertinaciousness, wrongness and stupidity.
I believe totally in the potential of every one of us to be exceptional. At times, the effort of holding onto that belief does have the beads of sweat appearing on my brow though.
