- Give 'em the beans!
Oh, agreed. Control is something I need to work on, and while, yes, everyone SHOULD post on the internet the way I think they should, I realize that's never going to happen.You know, I've posted some pretty silly answers to this thread, because it was actually begging for them! I will tell you this, trying to control what others do, is an exasperating endeavor. I think you will need to invest a LOT of time and money to make even a tiny difference in the way people do things. Having a reaction to what OTHER people do is pretty much time well wasted. I ran a tractor repair facility for three and a half years, just getting the crew all going in somewhat the same direction required a monumental amount of resolve. and I was the BOSS!
I do things the way I do because it makes the most sense to me. If others do things in a way that doesn't make sense to me, I have two options.
1. I can tell them why my way is better and that they should do it my way. This has been super effective and I have fixed all the world's problems in less than 18 months.
2. I can ask why they do it their way, which helps me accept my lack of control and, possibly gain a new tool/insight/perspective
