Day 344 - Wokka Wokka
Three ways to walk:
By walking the talking
I do not like slogans. Men in suits have used them all my life to demonstrate dominance. The few times I have seen the suits do what they say we should do was when they did it with support staff and someone to handle their correspondence.
But they sure like to talk. And if things don't go their way, they'll walk faster than anyone else, leaving us to deal with wreckage they leave behind. I'm always amazed at how much damage they do and how much they get away with. Suits are coats of armor, it seems.
I have few defenses against the suits. The one that works best is honesty. When they know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I'll tell them what I really think, they stop asking. Or they challenge me by giving me what I say I need, in order to do what I say I can do. But this kind of honesty only works when I'm honestly prepared to back up my words with actions. It's a lesson I've learned the hard way.
And when I'm the suit, I have to be prepared to both ask and receive, and I have to have an honest relationship with my higher power to get an honest answer. Even more, I have to answer that honesty honestly, or I'm fucked.
Enough! This is too much honesty before caffeine. So, here's a slogan!
Walk the talk, or take a walk. Wokka Wokka! :)
