Axios/Survey Monkey reported, “72% say traditional outlets ‘report news they know to be fake, false, or purposely misleading’.” The good news is transparency for the deceptive, manipulative, and exploitive conduct of the Aligned Media is now mainstream. The bad news is frustration still remains high for their inexcusable behavior.
Successful investors maintain rational perspective by taking responsibility for everything they do, especially the information they rely on. They minimize frustration by making a habit out of knowing who, what, and when to trust. The Aligned Media has destroyed itself by committing to a narrative void of objectivity. Successful investors and responsible people recognized this betrayal long ago.
Do the news and information sources you rely on foster, engage in, and respect honest debate? Or do they promote a narrative blocking efforts to protect those who are doing the work from those who are not?
Journalists who fail to deliver objective reporting are responsible for frustrating value creators. Transparency removes frustration by developing certainty, confidence, and commitment for and to the task at hand. It generates the energy to work the problem and see it through. Objectivity is the foundation of transparency.
The more responsible we are for seeking out objective news and information sources the less frustrated we will be. Knowledge will transfer and information flow much more effectively. Performance improves as we keep finding our way to better information, analyzing it faster, and making more out of it.
Objectivity requires frequent assessment of our own ability to minimize risk for bias in how we perceive, comprehend, and project information. Learning how to develop and support High Intuitive Function is a great place to start.
In sports competition the team that makes the most plays wins.
At the professional level, all competitors have the necessary balance of size, strength, speed, skill, and smarts (Knowledge and Competency). The differentiator is seeing and doing before others.
Gretzky, Aaron, Jordan, and Montana (and now Brady) did not physically dominate. They are GOATs (Greatest of All Time) because of their ability to best anticipate and take advantage of competitive opportunity. The same can be said for Turing, Tesla, Einstein, Walton, Buffet, Gates, Ellison (Minor & Oates), Jobs, Wozniack, Theil, Bezos, Page, Brin, Oprah, and Murdoch.
There are plenty of smart people. The ones who succeed have figured out how to best direct and support improvement and performance. High awareness and strong conviction are the keys to achieving the outcome you desire.
Were you taught how to achieve high awareness and build strong conviction in high school or college? How many professional or organizational training's have taught you how to see and do before others? Are the behaviors creating high awareness for what needs to be done and great sensitivity for how effectively you are doing it on the tip of your tongue?
A massive Learning Gap is keeping all of us from significantly higher levels of achievement. Academic, professional, and organizational development have over-weighted functional instruction at the expense of strengthening foundational behaviors causing the brain to filter, process, and apply information most effectively. Filling this Gap will get you to better information, empower you to analyze it faster, and make more out of it.
The Gap is filled by strengthening your Cognitive Process. Unfortunately we are much more likely to rely on machines than our brain. When we use our brain to filter, process, and apply information; imagination and curiosity integrate skill, knowledge, and experience in a manner machines will never be able to approach. There is no mechanical substitute for heart and soul.
If you are ready to find out how much more you are capable of and how achievable it is then learning how to develop and support High Intuitive Function is a great place to start. You will gain the understanding, knowledge, and tools to neutralize development and performance risk defined by 3 Blind Spots. The first is the difference between what you believe we know and the actual depth of your knowledge. The second, how you perceive your behavior and the reality of your conduct. The third, your in ability to know how your behavior impacts the efforts of others.
Think of improvement as a heartbeat.
Improving a little each day is a weak heartbeat. Improving a lot is a strong one.
Given how fast the rate of change is accelerating we need a strong heartbeat just to keep pace.
Think about the ratio of time spent chasing v staying ahead of the day’s events. Not just for a single day but over a week or a month. Is it 50:50? Or maybe 40:60? The poorer the ratio is the more likely you are to be managing decline instead of evolving fast enough to remain relevant. Higher ratios generate higher energy and greater happiness. Higher ratios prove it is way easier to be great than good!
The sad thing is we keep promising ourselves to make the time to improve / change; and never keep it. If we took the time to understand how the status quo impacts those we interact with professionally, and who we care about most personally, then we would make improvement (strengthening our heartbeat) our top priority.
Technology began punching the accelerator in the late 90’s. Transforming the workplace into a hyper-dynamic environment where so much information is presented so fast professionals are more likely to be overwhelmed than empowered. Consider over the last 50 years the life expectancy of a Fortune 500 company has dropped from 75 to 15 years https://domain.me/infographic-fortune-500-companies/ .
Bureaucracies lack the agility to improve fast enough to remain competitive. We are moving towards a leaner and more collaborative corporate structure where multiple strategic relationships replace mergers and acquisitions. Small and mid-sized entities fueled by highly agile professionals are becoming the new normal. These professionals have a strong heartbeat accelerating their evolution and securing their agility.
Please do not expect the HR department to save you. Neither organizational development experts nor higher education understand the problem. If they did then work would be conflict free; knowledge transfers and information flows freely as a Hive Culture creates abundance not imagined.
People who are committed to doing the work are rewarded with high awareness minimizing risk for bias in how they perceive, comprehend, and project information. Their behavior makes their desire to improve themselves and the world around them highly transparent. Their creativity and imagination attracts others to them. Collaboration and innovation ignite! Their work ethic and selflessness have made them color blind and open to all.
Your invited to develop a strong heartbeat and experience why it is way easier to be great than good. All you have to do is make improvement; strengthening behaviors causing the brain to filter, process, and apply information most effectively, your top priority. Learning how to develop and support High Intuitive Function is a great place to start. You will secure proactive behavior by gaining the power to drive unconscious, continuous, and accelerating improvement.
