Knowledge

With all that is happened in the last 90 days, I feel it is essential that I touch on a subject that I have in the past. Many articles, reports, and rumors circulate these days, blaming and pointing fingers at each other. Therefore I would just like to go over a few things I have learned in the past.

Just because someone writes, it does not ensure that it is accurate or factual. When you have a country with the first amendment, what you really have Is a license to say whatever you want, whether actual, false, or somewhere in between. When many people write, it is not always for the good of the masses, rather the paycheck’s healthiness.

Sometimes skewed writing happens out of misunderstanding, sometimes out of greed, and sometimes to persuade others to another ideal, whether truth or not. There is one way you can figure it out, though. What you have to do is, rather than look at the words themselves as the whole meaning, ask a question or two.

Some of my questions are who is writing The article? Where did they get their research from? Where is their money to write this coming from?

Sometimes, the most exciting articles that can easily sway you have much darker and more sinister actions. Once you ask your questions and take a look behind the curtain.

I am not encouraging anyone to be a cynic. I am suggesting that you know where ideas come from and how they were formed.  Never accept opinion as knowledge.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to write again soon.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
