Embrace the unfairness – change the world, or at least your world

You have probably already heard about Scott –  you know, the name tag guy. I admit being behind the curve – I am after all, of that “special age” that has a hard time keeping up with all the latest and greatest trends. That’s OK with me. I’m a firm believer that you get what you need when you need it because that’s when you’ll grasp it and appreciate it.

Anyway, this guy is a hoot – and talk about prolific. Oh my. Going to his website means making a decision. Either you dive in the deep, deep well of the content he has available, or cut your losses and just start trying to keep up today.

I jumped into the hole and found a blog post about the Unfairness of Love. It reminded me of  a fact that just about all teachers and parents know – when a kid is the least bit lovable is when he needs to be loved most. Parents and teachers develop the skill (and fortitude) to set aside their immediate feelings and do what is right for the kid at the time – it’s not easy – in fact, like Scott says – it’s unfair. They give the love and watch the difference it makes.

Now I’m not so sure it’s possible to do that with unreasonable bosses, clients and co-workers; but if it can make a difference with an unreasonable youngster, maybe it can make a difference with all those we’d rather just toss in the closet, shut the door and walk away leaving dumbfounded.

Generate some positivity. (I get this vision of  teeming mad growth of cells in a petri dish – sounds gross, however, I like to believe that good can grow in the same wild uncontrolled manner as bad.)

If we all take Scott’s advice and share some love – through gritted teeth if necessary – we might just be better off. Take a few minutes to read Scott’s post.

I think, hey, it’s worth a try, isn’t it?

Just think about it
