For my first attempt at blogging, I wanted to address something that weighs heavily on my mind.
Being in my senior years leaves me feeling I have been around the block a few times, and as you can see from my Bio, not in one particular place which, if I had been, I would have probably taken life for granted.
Starting in life, it just suffices that you get a job to get some money to call your own to get some initial traction in life.
As you proceed and venture into your own business, you understand how much more effort you have to put in over and above just working for a living.
When I look at others who run their own business, whether they are good at it or not, you also see how much time and effort they put in to be successful.
Late nights, early mornings, while the workers enjoy life and spending what they traded for their time. Owners, on the other hand, are working on something to hand down to the next generation.
It’s been bothering me for quite some time, even though I can understand the inexperienced or the sheer ignorance of not understanding what it takes to run a business.
Now step up to a changing world where everything changes faster, and if you don’t change with it, you are out of business or at least losing money.
Now we are in a paradigm shift with the economy in turmoil, and the general population is confused and unsure of where to turn.
Then this currency called bitcoin nudged its way into existence and did its first transaction over a pizza of all things.
It has gone from being funny money to something that shows its real value.
Having a conversation with people about crypto, again, they will give you that deer in the headlight look and fail to prosper from the new shift happening right before their eyes.
I still get the silent treatment from my Family when I mention anything about this new Crypto world, and that’s ok as the inevitable change will usher them in at the end. Their unwillingness to engage or do their due diligence will leave them catching up instead of being ahead of the curve.
The most crucial thing which leads me to my title of ‘ a heavy heart’ is we have leadership here which keeps getting torn apart by some because they are impatient or want instant gratification or they think it is their rightful place to have what others have worked for so hard and so long.
Ask the leaders who are working tirelessly, and they will all tell you that they want this yesterday, just like the rest of us, but it takes endless work.
But think about this for a minute.
With this new technology, it is not your everyday kind of business. This new technology is going where no man has gone before. It is an unfamiliar area of business.
The company’s success is for all of us and humanity in general.
They are spending years and countless hours pushing through this changing maize to make sure nothing is left to chance.
To catch the pitfalls before they become real.
To keep up with the ever-changing bureaucratic world so nothing can stop this from being one of the most exceptional businesses in modern-day history.
I don’t know about you, but I have worked hard all my life to make a dollar, and here I find myself with great minds fighting for something that can change a person’s financial future in ways I never could, and some want to pull their tireless working attention away from that.
More to the point would be to ask what I can do to help.
Sure, many will understand when it is all laid out in the end, but that is not when the leaders (who are doing something we did not have the initiative to do) would wish for but help and understanding.
It is now when they are tired and drained.
I’m not saying this is a race, but I have run competitively to where sometimes I wanted to give up, and that voice of encouragement from the sidelines was all it took to give me the impetus to cross the finish line.
I know the positive outweighs the negative, but, sadly, I have to witness others, making it harder for those fighting for all of us and those who will call Compumatrix home in the future.
