Whoa! Whoa! I mean Whoa!
Okay this was the last place I thought to discuss this subject. It is prudent to know and understand the neccessities of being valued for your word as well as action. In the cases where I have seen the occassional "truthage slip," I always ask myself to what advantage does a co-worker pursue through these actions? Will it get them "Brownie Points"? If that is the case I'd rather not climb the food chain in the manner of defeating moral integrity. In reality, it exists in more ways then we would like to admit because all to common shallow awareness has become the new "Depth," in our society. " Know nothing and despise those that do," is a common accepted theme in some circles. It is the reverse evolution of a Higher Awareness. The dumbing down of all complex models is suppose to spread the knowledge wealth to those in deep need, but many times it only fuels the inner Id of Egocentric mentality. Paranoia is not an affirmation and I believe many of the ones that obsess over the mistakes that others make are legitimizing their own persona of dysfunction. I know that it sounds like I skirted the purpose of this discussion, but that's because I feel real Talent and Skills do not fret over approval. Take for Instance Jobs, Steve wasn't known for his like-ability or aloof-ness, but it didn't stop him from standing out. success breeds eccentric behavior because it doesn't try to play by somebody else's Rules! So, have I been in violation of any of the the Deadly 7? Maybe! I am not Perfect and wouldn't consider somebody else's misfortune to imply my professional behavior is a direct reflection of my worth. That is the problem as I see it and when we start to admit this superficial entitlement behavior doesn't necessary equate success, we will all be on the same page.
