Kool-Logic: Performance with a Purpose

When she talks… Everybody listens.

She has a record to warrant it.

“If she gets an idea, she goes after it. There’s no stopping her.”

No, she doesn’t drink the others’ Kool-Aid, she has her own Kool-Logic: Performance with a Purpose.

“You give a team of people a set of objectives and goals and get them all to buy into it, and they can move mountains.”

According to BusinessWeek, since she started as CFO in 2000, the company’s annual revenues have risen 72%, while net profit more than doubled, to $5.6 billion in 2006.

So when Indra speaks….  everybody better listen.

Amazing Grace

He was undecided.

He didn’t know what to do.

Politics or Religion?  Of course, it was a time when it really mattered and could have a huge future impact.  They both could be honorable occupations, for honorable and honest people.

With a little nudging from his friend, he didn’t have a chance.  For that friend knew him well.  The strategic friend knew which choice was to be made.  The friend knew what would make him chose — politics.  The friend knew he would be a Champion for the cause.

Amazing Grace…

It’s about Time.

It has been a long time gone.

They finally have the time to try to make it work.

You know that thing called Democracy.

No, not the rhetoric  — well, the false promises…  words, words, words.  The Politician. The lies.. The grabbing of power, and holding on.  The Tyrants. Rulers.  Leaders, in name only.

Enough..

You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately … Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!  — Oliver Cromwell to the Rump Parliament.

They have gone in two countries.  Male tyrants and scoundrels.

It’s about time for their turn:  two strong and determined women.  The Challenge of Democracy.  The men have been mostly a disaster.

Me!? Arrogant..

Although most people do not take glee in being perceived as being “arrogant,”  however, many male Rationals will admit they are not particularly bothered as being perceived as arrogant – well, because they are arrogant. No sense in denying the facts. Female Rationals sometimes get a moniker (deserved or undeserved – depending on your political religion) such as the Iron Lady, because of this perceived arrogance. With that arrogance, I suspect political religion was why Hollywood did such a hatchet job on Margaret Thatcher in the now playing biographical movie.
