Imaginary rabbits

Squirrel, squirrel, watch out for that squirrel, sorry it’s a rabbit, maybe it’s a bunny I am not sure. Does it feel like that during the day, do you find that you cannot accomplish as task because they are things that pop up that require your attention right here and right now? Trust me, 90% of the things we pass as important are not what they present themselves to be.

 

It is important to keep the main thing, the main thing. Have you ever majored on the minor things and find that you minor on the major things? Life has always been like that, everyone has moments when you come to realize that what passed or was sold to you as very important has no bearing or relationship to the subject matter.

    Grammatical errors aside, an interesting piece, however I find the theme of your parable and subsequent comments troubling. Are you implying that we judge everything on face value, or that your time is too valuable to help another in need. Who are we judge what is important when importance is so highly subjective. What may be a “major” for you may not be for another, and vice versa. A simple cure to the dilemma you present is practicing the art of mindfulness; it is then that all will become clear.

    Judging by your last comment I would assume you are in a superior position to these unit members you reference, or that they were part of a study you conducted. What gives anyone a right to determine what is and what isn’t important. Are you stating that their problems are not worthy of your time and that you find them to be insignificant. Work hierarchy does not give you the right to pass judgment upon others, nor does it make you more qualified to judge what is wrong and what is right. Having read your bio I find it hard to believe that someone which such strong religious beliefs would feel this way.

    Using your example of a rabbit, a blade of grass to a rabbit could represent a form of nourishment, however as a human we would easily walk over a piece of grass without thinking about it’s importance to other forms of life. Does this make that blade of grass any less important in the grand scheme of things? So I ask you, are the issues faced by your subordinates or test group any less important than yours. Who are we to judge what is and is isn’t important, who’s responsibility is it to make this distinction.

    I think it is time to reassess, are you preaching the Gospel of The Lord or are you preaching time management skills. If it’s time management skills perhaps it’s time to determine what training said unit might be lacking if 90% of the time you spend with them is neither urgent nor important as stated. Maybe your time may be better spent identifying weakness and providing training so that they are not only productive 10% of the time in their dealings with you and others. Perhaps you are failing them and you are only arming them with 10% of the necessary resources required for them to complete their role.

    I would be interested to know what your thoughts are in regards to this…

    Matthew 7:1-29
    “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”

    • Abdias, I would love to take time to chat about the Bible with you but clearly my articles are not about the Bible. There is no judgement here, if what I write does not apply to you, that’s one thing and if they do then I am glad you can benefit from them. I simply write about my experiences, what I teach and learn become part of my thought process. While I am a Christian, I live, work and interact with none Christians and to the degree I can take my everyday experiences, Christian experiences and help someone, I do. I am not looking to please everyone, but help the few that get something from what I experience.

    You have stated that 90% of the things we pass as important are not. Is there research that supports this claim? Did you know that 83.78% of all statistics cited are made up on the spot?
