During my military days, I was once assigned to a unit who had a motto of, “Always Ready”. (Tish was cool as hell when everyone snapped to attention and yelled it out– …was a lil bit corny tho…) It was a training unit and I believe the ethos behind it was that, as an individual and collective as a unit; we should always be ready to contribute to the accomplishment of the mission.
Therefore, being mentally, and physically prepared and present were essential in meeting goals. Even during personal crisis, you had a contribution to make. Now, I wished I learned how to totally apply that to my overall life. I was great at compartmentalizing as I think many were. It helped me to displace and set aside the private side of my life to accomplish things on the ‘Soldier’ side.
In reflection, incorporating my entire self might have worked better for me. For some, separating ‘work life’ from ‘personal/home life’ might work great… but that shit doesn’t work for everybody. I think I’ll go more into depth about in an eBook, but for now we’ll keep pushing on the concept. (You know I like to keep my posts close to 300 words or less.)
So, the question is, How Do You Become Always Ready? I can say for me, learning about myself helped a lot. Getting proper rest and exercise also helped. The last thing I’ll mention here is motivation. Some people are givers. If you are one, learn to give that same energy you are willing to give to the job, to yourself. Doing so might put you on the path to finding happiness.
I hope this helps! Visit my site often!!
I’m working on a few eBooks as extensions about various topics I’ve posted on! 😉
Now it’s time to talk about all the “Programs” that are supposed to be helping #Veterans. I think the government can make better use of funding if they just cut checks directly to veterans. Everybody wants to “Thank” Veterans for their service, but few actually provide good assistance.
And why are veterans disjointed from the military, for the most part, once they separate or retire? The same energy should go into supporting Veterans directly by the military when they leave, as you had to get us to join. Everybody sees the “big picture”. So, you should lead by example. Read More
They both technically are Republican, and neither represent the people as they should. I am going to lay this out in its simplest terms because this is how it was revealed to me. Politics have always been relative to money and power. But at some point, back in the day, the Republicans, the party of Lincoln, got involved with fighting to end slavery. Eventually, those in the Democratic party who were fervent in their efforts to deny people their earned rights, took over the Republican party; leaving the Democratic party as a weaker version of the Republican party (because they all didn’t leave).
Unions and employment agencies both serve a good purpose in the workforce. Now, however, it seems like there is a void that is not being filled, and somebody needs to fill it. Many workers have their resumes out there, but either the pay is too low, or in areas where workers aren’t currently located.
What if, unions, employment agencies and these workers networked and created viable co-ops? With a slight change in operational procedures unions and employment agencies could help workers organize and raise the needed capital to form their own small companies. They could also assist with management, training, and identifying needs to be addressed locally, nationally and globally. Thus, reviving communities all over America.
When Medicare-For-All passes, and it will eventually pass, unions would need to change the services they offer, and this will be a great role for them and employment agencies to fulfill. The could also provide co-ops with negotiation training so that they can compete for government contracts to provide goods and services across the nation. Time to discuss — what do you think?
All my kids are grown, but I’m still interested in the overall community and how to advance the ideals of education; full, and truthful education; education that includes the histories of ALL people living in America. I like the thought of public education, but, I’m becoming more and more a fan of Khan Academy, and programs like it too. Mainly because of the what ifs. You know, things like:
