POETRY IN MOTION?

by Oz_Media In reply to POETRY IN MOTION?

Discussions - Poetry in Motion

Off-Topic Discussions on Tech Republic have always been an issue of equality. No matter how many certs you have, no matter how much education you have suffered it is STILL just one 'unqualified' opinion against another. This is a great confusion for many here, as while they are top of the pecking order in thier chosen field, when it comes to politics, religion and humanity, people are all just equals with opinions, all shouting into the same galeforce wind. So what really makes up these OFF TOPIC Discussions?




ASSUMPTION: Reaching a conclusion based on the loose reports or targeted news, we now reach the views that become our new muse.

ARGUMENTS: In order to challenge someone's assumption, it takes a real strong person to gather the gumption.

CONCLUSIONS: While we all like to have one, no matter how skewed, too often it's based on what hasn't been viewed.

THE EN We rarely stand up and take all the blame, we find it far easier to resort to a flame.

So really our discussions, whether certainty or notion, are all just examples of poetry in motion.

OM


I apologize for claiming this is poetry, it's the best I could do with absolutely no idea of what to blog about.

Now THIS is poetry (sort of)

To blog, or not to blog? THAT is the question.
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of other TR members,
Or to blog against a sea of angry posts,
And by opposing, right them?

To blog, to sleep no more. Who haseth the time?
To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub;
For if I blog what dreams may come to be-eth. If I sleepeth, I just sleepeth very deepeth.

When one has logged off this mortal's blog,
give pause; for who could bear the whips and scorns of TR members posts better than Oz.

It's too bad more people don't realize the points you've made.  I think it's cool to make IT poetry.  You should write some more.

Careers that fail people?

by Oz_Media In reply to POETRY IN MOTION?

I have been slogging around TR for a few years now, in that time I have
seen discussions posted on every conceivable topic, and then some quite
unconceivable ones too, but one topic that CONSTANTLY comes up is how
IT is failing, is a dead end, has let people down, is failing as a
career etc. It's absolutely horrendous how many people in IT have
such a negative outlook on their lifes work...as shown <a href="http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=6&threadID=174107&messageID=1771351">here</a>.
A person upset at upper management, executives for the way they get
their job. In fact this person is so bent on having a BAD day and
resenting someone elses success and his inability to move ahead, that
he has moved on  to resenting consultants who do their own thing
now <a href="http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=6&threadID=174107&messageID=1778637">hating consultants</a>
and most likely all salesmen for earning a living, even after
suggesting that working for yourself is the only option left.. Kinda
sounds like one of those, <em>'all mechanics are crooks' </em> guys that you get when someone has killed their car and found out it's a $2000 repair bill. Somebody's been stung.<br />
<br />
In many cases that blame is passed onto the government, someone else's
government, the company, the workers, and even the education, but I
NEVER see it accepted by the poster themselves. <br />
<br />
My career has always been had sales as a background and focus, I have
less than 8 years in actual IT work, I have never seen this many people
complain about a specific industry for so many reasons before. <br />
<br />
So I have to ask myself, WHY, have these people found themselves in
these positions and WHY would someone do something that they regretted
so vocally?<br />
<br />
Is it because people entered IT thinking that finally they could be
recognized for being a nerd for all those years, now they will be on
top of the world and king of their own multi-million dollar domain?<br />
<br />
Is it because of a general lack of social skills due to the thousands
of hours spent sitting at a keyboard and not being as active in the
world around them? This would result in an inability to assert
oneself properly or effectively?<br />
<br />
Is it because there's just more people in IT that have this inherent
negative attitude toward working? Perhaps it's a trait that's
just found in a common mindset.<br />
<br />
But most of all I must ask myself, given that you woke up this morning
and actually got to see the day, why would you make a concious CHOICE
to regret it so much? <br />
<br />
If you DO choose to have a crappy day and resent the world for once
again forcing you to wake and be part of it, then please don't use that
opportunity to moan about it. If the sky is falling, change direction, only YOU have control over your career. I<br />
<br />
t's as if people expect their career to drive itself these days or
something, even though the competition is even tougher than before, it
takes work and assertion to succeed, not knowledge or courses
with no real driven effort put in afterwards.<br />

Perhaps the problem is that management and IT don't see eye to
eye?  The geeks see a need, but sometimes can't communicate the
need in a meaningful way to managers.
