Many times, people’s decisions are wrong, but they have the authority to decide. Maybe they should change, but arguing with them won’t help once their decision is final. You can’t change others, but don’t quit.
Be a boss, fix problems under your control—everyone has some. Start new things, inspire people, or publish your dissenting opinion somewhere useful. Just, accomplish something.
Music lessons for pigs are annoying and achieve little. If you try to teach pigs to sing, consider that you might be wrong and your boss has accepted it and already moved on, which is why he’s the boss. · · · →
Half of society has decided that they don’t want to be told what to do.
It’s not that they don’t want to be bossed or controlled. It’s not that they want freedom. Though, they tell themselves such. Actually, they just want everything to be their own idea.
They don’t ask whether their actions will succeed or fail. They don’t ask if something is good or bad, desirable, healthy, painful, useful, wise, or quite the opposite of all these. They only ask whether someone is “telling them”.
If you tell such people, “Go, thrive, and succeed,” they will fail on purpose. · · · →
