The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was again amazing. I’m always fascinated by the sunset and how the diverse the sun sets can be.
have you ever been watching something and just gotten fascinated with the interactions? I usually dislike reality shows because even though they’re supposed to be real they seem staged and often get a little bit silly over or the top. This normally isn’t a very big deal because I just don’t watch but I find myself drawn to some dumb shows like storage wars we’re at least it seems like there are some real people in the mix.
In the middle of that show there is a crazy guy who always tries to irritate everyone else. Often he bids just for the sake of annoying people and often he wins because he is quite tenacious. The reason I laugh about this is because tenacity usually ends up winning. Sure the guy is annoying but in the end his approach allows no quarter and eventually overcomes all obstacles.
So why aren’t we all this tenacious? Why ever back down? I had this discussion with several people recently for no good reason, but I pointed out that in collaboration both sides always lose. I know it’s strange, but the essence of collaboration is for both sides to give and in the process for both sides to win something. Still no one gets what they originally wanted in either collaboration or compromise unless they misstated their original position to begin with.
Hence my laughing. With some of the background it is often obvious that the character is manipulating others for random reasons and in the process causing massive issues or winning his points by default.
Maybe we can learn something from this reality show. Maybe the thing to learn is not to back down and to be passionate at all times about how we approach the world. I know that’s a lot more than you’d expect out of a reality show but maybe, just maybe it’ll be fun to try.
So as the sun sets on another day, life isn’t meant to be lived halfway it’s meant to be all we can make it. Let’s push the envelope and make it the best we possibly can, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and carry on…
