“Ordinarily, if an average man comes face to face with the nagual the shock would be so great that he would die. The goal of a warrior’s training is not to teach him to hex or to charm, but to prepare his tonal not to crap out ... You call it explaining. I call it a sterile and boring insistence of the tonal to have everything under it’s control. Whenever it doesn’t succeed, there is a moment of bafflement and then the tonal opens itself to death. What a prick! It would rather kill itself than relinquish control. And yet there is very little we can do to change that condition.”

The ‘Writing on the wall’ BS

n

Nature seems to be taking it’s course. The beautiful thing is that it always does – we just don’t pay attention very well. I am not impressed with people who look back in a time of crisis and talk about ‘the writing on the wall’ – it was there for everyone to see. These people are parasites – and probably only feeding the next round of crisis. The writing is always on the wall – the question is what can we do to read it every living moment?

What is wrong with contemporary business models? What is wrong with financial institutions? What is the wrong with VC’s? Nothing and these are really uninteresting questions – because they make us look back at what has come and gone. How can business models be improved? How can financial institutions improve? How can VC’s improve? How can I as an individual improve? These are tough questions – not because of the answers – they are already ‘written on the wall’ (and have been for a long time) – but because of the level of commitment that is required to follow through with them.

These thoughts were provoked by:

breathe…

breathe…

breathe…

Exactly!
