Brazilian, anyone?

It would be a completely different matter altogether if you were amazing, or even good, at your job. But, let's face it, you're no great shakes at what you do. Not even a ripple. What you're good, nope, let me correct that - what you're FANTASTIC at is delegating work to your underlings.

Honey, aren't you the least bit insulted when your supposed contacts look for your subordinates' input more than your own? I guess my question is rhetoric - the answer is obviously a big, fat NO.

And I know that my opinion counts for shit in your world - perfectly aware of that, doll. But when you sit where I do, and you're just free to observe how the "uppers" put on a glossy finish to mask what is a lackluster performance, man, it's bloody hysterical.

But you know, funny enough, in the end I still sort of win. I mean, I don't have any targets to hit.

Some people listen to themselves, rather than listen to what others say.
These people don’t come along very often, but when they do, they remind us that once you set out on a path, even though critics may doubt you, it’s ok to believe.
There is NO Can’t, Won’t, or Impossible.
They remind us, that it is ok to believe.

Impossible is just, a small word thrown around by small men,
who finds it easier to live in the world they’ve been given,
than to explore the power they have to change it.

Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare.
Impossible is potential.
Impossible is temporary.

Impossible is, nothing.

"To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places — and there are so many — where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory."

- Howard Zinn, "The Optimism of Uncertainty" (from The Impossible Will Take a Little While)
My, my it's been a while hasn't it? A year, maybe more? i don't blame you for compleltely ignoring my nlog, or even if you've removed me from your list. And really, don't take this post as a sign of resurrection. Random Collisions isn't pulling a Lazarus. it's just that the quote above is lovely, and I thought you should know about it.

He has been my boss for almost four years, but he has never once treated me with carlessness the way you seem to excel at.

I volunteered for your project, but that doesn't mean that I'm under you or in any way connected to it. Let's get one thing straight: YOU ARE NOT MY BOSS. When you become my superior, then you can order me around as you wish. I may do it with a smile on my face and a knife in my hand, but I'll do it. Until that time comes, we are equal. No matter what your ID says.

Tangina nyong lahat. Manggagamit.
