Some people will ramble on about anything these day. In thread after thread I find two common themes...
1. Everyone's out to bring down my empire (Google, competitors, angry girlfriends, etc) and I'll spend all my time making sure that doesn't happen (even if it means breaking a few rules or doing it to the competition first).
2. I could care less about things outside of my control, I control my content, it's presentation and my business model so my time is better spent improving the things within my control.
It's victims vs those who refuse to be victims. It's "woe is me" vs "I've got work to do." It's a waste of time vs efficiency. And it's appalling that this is pretty much one of the most active threads in this forum right now. Of course, I'm not out to change the game. My only intention is to insert my own whacky view into the ongoing calamity and offer the following as a sacrificial lamb to the gods of reason.
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference."
And can I please get a box of integrity for Christmas.
You know what they say about shoes and whether they fit or not, right?
