The Left’s Way: Vindictive, not Appreciative

The division is becoming so wide and so deep, I have concern for the future of the United States.

Published

on

By some polls more than 70% of Republicans and 30% of Democrats believe that election fraud gave Joe Biden the presidency. Many Democrats, ensconced in the mainstream media bubble that has perpetrated hoax after hoax for four years, deny that any such schemes have occurred.

While many on the right assert that they will never regard this election as anything but stolen, a chilling reality sets in … Democrats were gleefully willing to steal this election, to overturn our most fundamental democratic institutions, and to seize control of the country. The schemes were varied, but all shared one common denominator: to usurp Democracy.

Fraud on Top of Fraud

Considering the minimizing of ID requirements, ballot-box stuffing, not delivering ballots, backdating ballots, ballot harvesting, voting twice, voting in place of the deceased, forging signatures, doctoring ballots, re-running ballots through counting machines, restricting access of poll watchers, coaching voters at the voting booth, feigning water main breaks to clear out voting precincts and manipulate counting machines, and using software susceptible to vote-switching (as employed in dozens of states), the effort was widespread.

Also, in delivering truckloads of computer-generated ballots, “finding” stacks of ballots late, paying for votes, offering raffles prizes for voting, destroying opposition ballots, and so many other illegal and un-democratic schemes, the quest was the same: To rob us of our 233-year heritage; to prevent the rightful; winning candidate from assuming office, to steal other elections at the national, state, county, and local level; and to permanently vanquish our fundamental right to vote in free and fair elections,.

As such, roughly one half of the population – and perhaps one-half of all the people we know, are either complicit or somehow unaware.

Half of the Populace

These developments do not make for a unified nation, nor are they useful in going forward, and seeking to restore some sense of equanimity or even semi-cordial relations. The division is becoming so wide and so deep, I have concern for the future of the United States. Communities could be split apart. Families could be split apart.

As you begin to realize that those who oppose you politically are willing to do anything to ensure that their candidates are elected, at any cost, it is difficult to fathom. They look askance at anyone who doesn’t vote the way they vote. Indeed, recent studies have shown that people who vote Right are more tolerant than those who vote Left.

Of late, I’ve been contemplating whether or not to sever ties with liberal friends, some of whom I have known for decades. I have relatives who vehemently disagree with my vote, and apparently they are fine with having elections stolen, as long as their candidates win. I implore them to understand the enormous ramifications of stolen elections.

Re-Programming Camps for Thee

Each day, a Robert Reich, an AOC, a pundit, a reporter, or some other politician suggests assembling lists of Trump voters (all 74+ million?) for future re-education camps, or ‘reconciliation’ programs. This is the language that I would expect from a Maoist.

Voters on the Right are called every name in the book, i.e. ‘All Trump voters are Nazis,’ and this label is not issued as hyperbole. Trump’s record on minority employment, historically black colleges, opportunity zones, prison reform, the apprentice program, school choice, the (medical) right to try, Veterans Administration reform, troop withdrawal, Middle East peace, Jews and the state of Israel, Hispanics across the country, and so much more, flies in the face of viewing Trump voters as ‘deplorables.’ Yet, this is consistently and relentlessly how we’re regarded.

The Left’s history of dealing with those who do not toe their line is not pretty. And today’s Left seems poised to adopt the horrendous practices of their forebears. Biden and his puppet masters want us to be wary at all times.

What about the children we have in grade school, middle school, high school, and college? Will they have to knuckle under? Should we be silent at work, hiding our political inclinations? Will we be relieved of our jobs? Do we get ‘canceled?’ Will our incomes suffer? Will our businesses be flagged? Should we be wary of our neighbors?

Welcome to Joe Biden’s America.

Delegation: An Ongoing Phenomena

Failure to delegate effectively often happens because team leader don’t trust the people with whom they’re working

Published

on

For most of your career, you’ve read or heard that one of the key approaches to getting things done is to delegate effectively. This presumes that you have others to whom you can delegate. In my contact with more than 950 organizations over the last two and a half decades, I’ve found increasingly that people have fewer resources, a lower budget, and less staff people. If they want to get something done, often they have to do it themselves!

Assuming you have others to whom you can delegate, the first or second time you personally tackle a particular task yields useful information. You learn more about the nature of the task, how long it takes, and whether or not you enjoy doing it.

By the third time, a task of the same ilk as those you’ve handled before often becomes best handled by someone reporting to you. Such tasks could involve updating a database, completing an interim report, or assembling meeting notes.

All that You Can

On the path to getting things done, your quest is to identify all those things that you can possibly delegate to others and then prepare those others so that they have a high probability of succeeding. In the course of your workday there may be only a handful of things that you alone need to do because of your experience, insight or specialized knowledge. Everything else that can be delegated should be.

Some people feel they have to take care of everything themselves and to this day haven’t been able to break the habit of “doing it all.” If this someone is in your seat right now, recognize that as a category of one, you can only get so much done.

Many managers and supervisors fail to delegate effectively because either they don’t fully trust the people with whom they’re working, or they’ve always been get-it-all-done-by-myself types.

Take Time before You Assign

Prior to delegating anything to anyone, take the time to actually prepare your staff for delegation. This would involve assessing an employee’s skills, interests, and needs. You could even ask people what new tasks and responsibilities they would like to assume. You might be surprised at the wide variety of responses you receive. There may be people on your staff right now who can help you with tasks you’ve been dying to hand off to someone but didn’t see how or when you could put them into play.

While you want to delegate to staff people who show enthusiasm, initiative and interest, or have otherwise previously demonstrated the ability to handle and balance several tasks at once, sometimes you have to delegate to someone who has not exhibited any of the above. In that case, delegate on a piece-meal basis.

Ensure that the staff person is able to effectively handle the small task or tasks he’s been assigned and does not feel swamped or overloaded. When the staff person demonstrates competence, you can increase the complexity of assignments and even the frequency with which you delegate.

Multi-tasking: More Harm than Good

In this day and age, where so much competes for our attention, it is easy to stray!

Published

on

I belong to a local health club, and while I was there one day, I saw a woman get on the Stairmaster. I watched as she whipped out an mp3 player and started listening to music. Then, to my surprise, she reached into her gym bag, pulled out a book, and placed it on that ledge to read. I almost asked her if she would like a piece of gum!

Today, when so much competes for our attention, it is easy to stray! More often than we care to pretend, in the office and at home, we invite more than we can handle, and then act as though we didn’t. As individuals, throughout society, we are trained to believe that the ability to multi-task is a great attribute. Unfortunately, that’s a big mistake. Here’s why, and how to avoid multi-tasking in the future.

First Things First

What’s the fastest and easiest way to handle six tasks competing for our attention? Identify the most important task, second most important, third most important, and so on, then tackle the first and finish it all the way, move on to the second and complete it, then move all the way down the list.

Any other way of tackling those items, whether they are tasks for home or work, is simply not as efficient. The catch is, any other way is more psychologically satisfying.  Why?  It’s almost as if juggling projects, switching gears unnecessarily or abruptly, or leaving a job unfinished to start a new project gives you the opportunity to say to other people, “Hey, look at me! Look how involved I am! Look at how busy I am! I’m great at multi-tasking.” A multi-tasker, however, can’t compete with others who tackle their to-do list, one item at a time.

What about doubling up as a procedure for tackling a number of routine items or very simple tasks? You can eat dinner and read a book at the same time. Eating and reading at the same time is relatively harmless.

How about driving and talking on the cell phone at the same time? Driving requires your sharp attention, as does carrying on an intelligent conversation with someone else who is not present; doing both at the same time spreads your attention too thin, with often disastrous results. The same is true for projects you’re working on that require your best thinking.

Tips:
* give yourself 5 to 10 minute intervals to focus on the task at hand
* safe-guard your immediate environment to avoid interruptions
* acknowledge yourself whenever you stick to one task and finish it
* repeat all the above, often, knowing that ‘more often’ is better!

Your Undivided Attention

When you’re working on a new task, brainstorming, engaging in first-time thinking, or doing creative work, it’s vital to offer your complete and undivided attention to that one task before you. To dissipate your attention or otherwise stray means you are not going to do your best work.
