You cannot drive people when you work them into a fog.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Nor can you expect people in a fog to generate much internal drive.

Nor will people in a fog drive one another around toward specific destinations.  

People get nervous when they are being driven in a fog.

People get nervous when they are driving in a fog...well...at least the ones that notice the fog get nervous.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Scarcity-thinking stifles curiosity and creativity and when curiosity and creativity are stifled success is elusive.

It is clear, some people fully disagree with these views...they continue to think and talk scarcity...and many people do nothing to correct that problem.

Remember...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

And beasts are also in the eye of the beholder.

"A beast does not know that he is a beast, and the nearer a man gets to being a beast, the less he knows it."

 George MacDonald, Scottish author, (1824-1905)

When we were newborn babes, we somehow knew the best way to get what we wanted was kicking and screaming.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When we were newborn babes, we somehow knew the best way to get what we wanted was kicking and screaming.

At first, people encouraged us to take action.

Then, of great surprise to us, bigger people began a life-long assault aimed at proving otherwise. 

In ancient times it was easy to protect intellectual property...when chisels were stolen few thieves could write in stone.

There's a long legacy of 'idea theft'. When our ancestors got beyond chisels and stones and into more-formal business, copyright became an issue. Apparently, the case law on copyright dates back to the 6th Century AD. 

Speaking of our ancestors...
