Because we forget

Because we forget, and revisions with changes rise up, sometimes we need a few reminders so this will be such a time to review of who we are, what we do, what our industry encompasses, what our industry IS.

How To Overcome Mental Fatigue, According To An Expert

I think it is time for us all to once again refocus on some very pertinent facts in terms of ALL THINGS COMPUMATRIX.

The first signs of life for our company started back in 2005. There have since then been several changes, remember PSX, Eonpay and other things with the significant change being made in the 2009-2010 reorganization with the resultant emergence of Compumatrix and Networks International Inc. The company has since that embryo stage gone through many adjustments to arrive at where it is today and notwithstanding all those successes we still face the need to continue this emerging process to become a most successful company in our Industry. This is the reason why we still describe ourselves as a Start-Up.

I am going to give this report in several parts. I will even divide those parts up into some sub parts. Therefore this topic of sharing will need several postings.

This platform can be described this way. Individualism is not a gain since its main focus is on the “me” element and not the “us” element. So, for us it should not be how can “I” gain but how can we “all” gain. How can the Company and the Community gain and all of us move ahead together to a better, brighter future. Yes a most prize-worthy goal for us to agree upon for each other and the future.

The strongest cord for each of us is “community” and the “focus on it”. This is the uniting force, the positive force as against the divisive negative force. Might I interject here with a little subtlety this question; Who is in control of this focus, in this adventure that we have all consented to take (no one has been forced to join)? This, uniting force and focus is the debt of caring and helping that we all owe each other and more than anything we owe to our Company as it pioneers and leads the way through, into this very new industry with it’s attending revolutionary “ECOSYSTEM”. I remember many years ago the phrase; “the family that prays together stays together” While prayer is a good thing for us all, what I also glean from this; is, “the community that believes strongly together will strongly succeed together”. So the question now is; are you going to be part of that community, this community – our community and bind strongly together in it?

So let’s see;

1 Lets’ say is the refresher of who we are. It will include some of the industry what it means in general;

2 Some about our system, our paradigm, our product;

3 the DEX platform and the rationale for it, and some of the rules, and;

4 Community and Focus

I am going to address these in no certain order; however maybe we will start with #4 first.

The reason for this is that for many members this is a BIG challenge. Yet this is the core that should bind us all together that we All should achieve for each other. This is really what makes us tick and work together OR on the other hand it could become a ticking time bomb scattering us. I know that we have all heard this saying “united we will stand firm but divided we will fall flat” For US AND THIS COMPANY that is most emphatically true. We cannot in this industry atmosphere and “ecosystem” be anything but united. Will you be in agreement with this?

For you see this is the one function that is very important BECAUSE it is the PLATFORM OF VALUE for the company and members together.

Remember this, the leadership in this company is faithfully here, positioned to lead, to help, to guide, to teach, to develop understanding of what to do and how to do it and to encourage everyone because we know that everyone is at a different level of knowledge and position on this trip we travel.

Yet, we want everyone to reach the destination thus, there is a certain level of need for patience, however, even this accommodation must see progress of graduation in each member evidencing steps of advancement and comprehension. For how would we characterize the 14 year old that is still in kindergarten? So what do we do? we do what some have already said; we move onward, forward, and upward.

This then brings me to the topic of focus. In the case of Compumatrix we focus on the development going forward and not on the perceived delays. We stay positive and not become negative. We focus on our goals not on the present status. We focus on where we are going and the success thereof, not on the moaning and groaning, grumbling and complaining nor the sentiment of when, how long; but rather on the progress that each and every day offer with the attenuating hard work being done by our staff and the many others partnering with us. We focus on gratitude for an opportunity to be participating in something great. We focus on our community’s well being and definitely we focus on following the rules, protocols and faithfully doing our part. This in turn will help us focus on being helpful leaders helping the staff and even each other.

Let’s use a baseball simile; we do not want a pitcher to focus on the knuckle-ball, the screwball, the deceptive big curve ball to try to confuse, to deflect the batter (member) from wholesome happy participation in the game. But this just might be the picture of some who focus on continual interjections of statements of controversy or questions bordering on the element of “me” and not the “wholesomeness” of the community. Questions that bring into focus doubt, impatience, with the sole cause to what I call “stir the pot of controversy” Our community focus MUST rejects this!

So, for our community to move positively forward gaining ground little by little every day, it is most incumbent on us all to stay and keep our focus on the goal of the company and our leaders to move us all to success. For when you go your own way, do your own thing, ignore strong instructions and protocols it only means you have lost focus or never had any to start with, you just want your own way of what you want to do, and not at all to abide by the orders, protocols and standards for the community.

More to follow, so bye for now until the next day or so!

  1. I remember the beginning with PSX and Eonpay.
    So much has happened since then!
    A huge development was made when introducing Compumatrix to the world.
    Looking forward to the next step forward!

  2. Well, if there was ever a great illustration of the story of the tortoise and the hare, it would be Compumatrix. We did not start off as a flash in the pan get rich quick scheme. Slowly, methodically, steadily, little by little, inch by inch, failure by failure, we have reached the place where we are today. And how strong and how deep is our foundation now. Houses can go up in a day these days, but how deep is their foundation ? Ours goes so deep, and now it will be allowed to go so tall !

  3. As virtues go, patience is a quiet one.

    It’s often exhibited behind closed doors, not on a public stage: A father telling a third bedtime story to his son, a dancer waiting for her injury to heal. In public, it’s the impatient ones who grab all our attention: drivers honking in traffic, grumbling customers in slow-moving lines. We have epic movies exalting the virtues of courage and compassion, but a movie about patience might be a bit of a snoozer.

    Having patience means being able to wait calmly in the face of frustration or adversity, so anywhere there is frustration or adversity—i.e., nearly everywhere—we have the opportunity to practice it.

    Yet patience is essential to daily life—and might be key to a happy one. Having patience means being able to wait calmly in the face of frustration or adversity, so anywhere there is frustration or adversity—i.e., nearly everywhere—we have the opportunity to practice it. At home with our kids, at work with our colleagues, at the grocery store with half our city’s population, patience can make the difference between annoyance and equanimity, between worry and tranquility.

    Religions and philosophers have long praised the virtue of patience; now researchers are starting to do so as well. Recent studies have found that, sure enough, good things really do come to those who wait. Some of these science-backed benefits are detailed below, along with three ways to cultivate more patience in your life.

    1. Patient people enjoy better mental health

      This finding is probably easy to believe if you call to mind the stereotypical impatient person: face red, head steaming. And sure enough, according to a 2007 study by Fuller Theological Seminary professor Sarah A. Schnitker and UC Davis psychology professor Robert Emmons, patient people tend to experience less depression and negative emotions, perhaps because they can cope better with upsetting or stressful situations. They also rate themselves as more mindful and feel more gratitude, more connection to mankind and to the universe, and a greater sense of abundance.

      In 2012, Schnitker sought to refine our understanding of patience, recognizing that it comes in many different stripes. One type is interpersonal patience, which doesn’t involve waiting but simply facing annoying people with equanimity. In a study of nearly 400 undergraduates, she found that those who are more patient toward others also tend to be more hopeful and more satisfied with their lives.

      Another type of patience involves waiting out life’s hardships without frustration or despair—think of the unemployed person who persistently fills out job applications or the cancer patient waiting for her treatment to work. Unsurprisingly, in Schnitker’s study, this type of courageous patience was linked to more hope.

      Finally, patience over daily hassles—traffic jams, long lines at the grocery store, a malfunctioning computer—seems to go along with good mental health. In particular, people who have this type of patience are more satisfied with life and less depressed.

      These studies are good news for people who are already patient, but what about those of us who want to become more patient? In her 2012 study, Schnitker invited 71 undergraduates to participate in two weeks of patience training, where they learned to identify feelings and their triggers, regulate their emotions, empathize with others, and meditate. In two weeks, participants reported feeling more patient toward the trying people in their lives, feeling less depressed, and experiencing higher levels of positive emotions. In other words, patience seems to be a skill you can practice—more on that below—and doing so might bring benefits to your mental health.

  4. Patient people are better friends and neighbors

    In relationships with others, patience becomes a form of kindness. Think of the best friend who comforts you night after night over the heartache that just won’t go away, or the grandchild who smiles through the story she has heard her grandfather tell countless times. Indeed, research suggests that patient people tend to be more cooperative, more empathic, more equitable, and more forgiving. “Patience involves emphatically assuming some personal discomfort to alleviate the suffering of those around us,” write Debra R. Comer and Leslie E. Sekerka in their 2014 study.

    Evidence of this is found in a 2008 study that put participants into groups of four and asked them to contribute money to a common pot, which would be doubled and redistributed. The game gave players a financial incentive to be stingy, yet patient people contributed more to the pot than other players did.

  5. This kind of selflessness is found among people with all three types of patience mentioned above, not just interpersonal patience: In Schnitker’s 2012 study, all three were associated with higher “agreeableness,” a personality trait characterized by warmth, kindness, and cooperation. The interpersonally patient people even tended to be less lonely, perhaps because making and keeping friends—with all their quirks and slip-ups—generally requires a healthy dose of patience. “Patience may enable individuals to tolerate flaws in others, therefore displaying more generosity, compassion, mercy, and forgiveness,” write Schnitker and Emmons in their 2007 study.

    On a group level, patience may be one of the foundations of civil society. Patient people are more likely to vote, an activity that entails waiting months or years for our elected official to implement better policies. Evolutionary theorists believe that patience helped our ancestors survive because it allowed them to do good deeds and wait for others to reciprocate, instead of demanding immediate compensation (which would more likely lead to conflict than cooperation). In that same vein, patience is linked to trust in the people and the institutions around us.

    1. Patience helps us achieve our goals

      The road to achievement is a long one, and those without patience—who want to see results immediately—may not be willing to walk it. Think of the recent critiques of millennials for being unwilling to “pay their dues” in an entry-level job, jumping from position to position rather than growing and learning.

      In her 2012 study, Schnitker also examined whether patience helps students get things done. In five surveys they completed over the course of a semester, patient people of all stripes reported exerting more effort toward their goals than other people did. Those with interpersonal patience in particular made more progress toward their goals and were more satisfied when they achieved them (particularly if those goals were difficult) compared with less patient people. According to Schnitker’s analysis, that greater satisfaction with achieving their goals explained why these patient achievers were more content with their lives as a whole.

      1. Patience is linked to good health

        The study of patience is still new, but there’s some emerging evidence that it might even be good for our health. In their 2007 study, Schnitker and Emmons found that patient people were less likely to report health problems like headaches, acne flair-ups, ulcers, diarrhea, and pneumonia. Other research has found that people who exhibit impatience and irritability—a characteristic of the Type A personality—tend to have more health complaints and worse sleep. If patience can reduce our daily stress, it’s reasonable to speculate that it could also protect us against stress’s damaging health effects.

        1. Three ways to cultivate patience

          This is all good news for the naturally patient—or for those who have the time and opportunity to take an intensive two-week training in patience. But what about the rest of us?

          It seems there are everyday ways to build patience as well. Here are some strategies suggested by emerging patience research.

          Reframe the situation. Feeling impatient is not just an automatic emotional response; it involves conscious thoughts and beliefs, too. If a colleague is late to a meeting, you can fume about their lack of respect, or see those extra 15 minutes as an opportunity to get some reading done. Patience is linked to self-control, and consciously trying to regulate our emotions can help us train our self-control muscles.
          Practice mindfulness. In one study, kids who did a six-month mindfulness program in school became less impulsive and more willing to wait for a reward. The GGSC’s Christine Carter also recommends mindfulness practice for parents: Taking a deep breath and noticing your feelings of anger or overwhelm (for example, when your kids start yet another argument right before bedtime) can help you respond with more patience.
          Practice gratitude. In another study, adults who were feeling grateful were also better at patiently delaying gratification. When given the choice between getting an immediate cash reward or waiting a year for a larger ($100) windfall, less grateful people caved in once the immediate payment offer climbed to $18. Grateful people, however, could hold out until the amount reached $30. If we’re thankful for what we have today, we’re not desperate for more stuff or better circumstances immediately.

          We can try to shelter ourselves from frustration and adversity, but they come with the territory of being human. Practicing patience in everyday situations—like with our punctuality-challenged coworker—will not only make life more pleasant in the present, but might also help pave the way for a more satisfying and successful future.

        2. Thanks for all the research on patience. Can any of us think of one person, that’s not already a saint, that could have more patience? I really don’t know of anyone. Patience and faith go hand in hand for me. When I’m irritated that something is not happening on my timeline, I try to remind myself that perhaps it’s not the right time and this is happening for a reason.
          One way to practice having more patience is through taking yoga classes. Yoga teaches you the art of quieting your mind, helping you to focus better and realizing you can’t rush a yoga class!!! If you do you could possibly hurt yourself.

  6. I can not believe there has not been anyone reply to such a great post — I know I messed up back month or so ago but David did an awesome job with his posting and there should be lots of people adding to it maybe it start now — I really think we do tend to Forget too much thru time and thru Life but we also remember a great deal or at least I hope so — thanks David —

  7. This blog post gave me more insight into what Compumatrix stands for. I was not around for PSX or Eonpay, but I am glad I am here now. Knowing that Compumatrix cares about every aspect of their business and takes the time to make sure everything within their company is of quality; I think Compumatrix is on the verge of something special. One step at a time. Good things take time to grow!

  8. yep thats a true statement mrn it does take time to grow and it takes effort and persistence to stay the course and make the necessary changes along the way to give everyone an opportunity to succeed — I read through blogs here and there is so much great info and when you go a little bit farther you will discover Wisdom — and again great stuff David — thank you — rj

  9. Thank you David Morris for showing me how far Compumatrix has really come as a company. Unfortunately, I was not here for the beginning stages, but I am excited to be a part of these next steps and make myself as useful as possible to the other members of this company. It is truly incredible how far Compumatrix has come in the past decade!

  10. So once again a consistent theme by our leader presents yet another positive blog. It mentions some negativity from others in the form of flaming via negative connotations to the community. I’m shocked at the fact that then with the amount of communication from the executive team over the years that present in Discord and by announcements; people continue to be negative. With the normal corporate structure, they could care less what the exterior environment outside the executive development team would be disseminated. Very little discussions being funneled down outside of the development team would be allowed. But not a Compumatrix. Communication is always positive, prompt and always openly disseminated. I am very happy to be a positive influencer within Compumatrix and I think we all need to lend a helping hand in continuing to that theme.
