Arise People of the Mountain
I don’t particularly like to draw a parallel between Smaug (the dragon from Lord of the Rings) and our company, Compumatrix. However, I do wish to draw into this discussion the long slumber as it appears from the outside (more on this later). Compumatrix is represented by “the Mountain” and the members are the People of the Mountain. The People of the Valley are the ones that have long awaited for the opportunity to come the way that will lift them from Financial Despair.
Smaug, the dragon represents the difficulties that Compumatrix had to endure in the efforts to prosper. You can wrap the storyline from Lord of the Rings around the story of Compumatrix. You can state you were there when Henry said: Compumatrix, Awake From Your Slumber!
As stated above, I mentioned the “long slumber as it appears from the outside.” For the People of the Valley, it would appear that Compumatrix was in a long slumber. This has not been the case as there have been several very dedicated People of the Mountain. They have been at work and on guard for an extensive period.
The Business of Building Mountains
In this age of fast-paced live styles, one thing is certain. Appearance is the crown of a business enterprise. Someone is an instant success in this online business world when they turn the lights on for everyone to see. Either the business starts and flourishes or starts and crashes. Either way, the business is labeled an instant success or a dismal failure. No one sees the years of sweat and tears involved in putting it together.
There is no difference in the World of Compumatrix. When the lights are turned on, it will be labeled an instant success! All the years will never be a part of the imaginations of those that come after us. They will see a website that someone put together and nothing more. They did not catch the bus several years ago and participated in various events until the Mountain was built.
Today, everyone thinks if it’s on the internet, it must have taken 2 hours to put it together. Just the concept of Compumatrix was years in the making. The design and implementation are so much more than can be described. The technology today is so complex that it allows for the most prosperous future.
Compumatrix Awakes From Time
There have been enough movies on time travel that by now, you are convinced it is possible. Keeping within the reality of this thought, have you ever read in a history book where someone from the future traveled thru time to change the outcome of an event?
Since I can not recall one of these events, I am going to assume everything has to fall into place within its time reality.
I find this to be the case (in my mind) as far as Compumatrix is involved. A while back, I was reminiscing over the events of Compumatrix and realized the outcome was something Henry came up with years ago. It was ahead of its time and everything has to fall into the right time frame. My conclusion is we needed to take the correct procedures to put things into place. Hence satisfying Smaug!
Do you have a Smaug in your life that is holding back your future?
