Fallacy Manifesto Part 4: Stinky Red Herring

11/21/2018
More
People love to throw distractions into conversations when they don't' know what the hell they are talking about or if they are only looking to affirm their initial point of view. Don't let people take control of an argument by leading you away from the point being made. Most times by introducing a new and totally irrelevant topic to now debate. Why you would want to chase after a stinky red herring anyhow? It's one of the oldest tricks in the book but can still be effective if you are not...

What is a Friend Anyways?

7/25/2018
More
As children we call everyone a friend that we talk to on a regular occasion. As we grow older these relationships becoming more meaningful which requires more careful selection and consideration to the people that we call a friend. Of course it is important to have friends but how important are they really in our lives. Do they lose culpability due to friendship or should we judge them the hardest as they are the closest to us. Let's talk about it!!

Fallacy Manifesto Part 3: Appeal To Ignorance

6/29/2018
More
No one knows everything about everything. Sometimes we know nothing when it comes to certain topics. Seems like a basic concept yet many struggle to come to terms with it. It is ok to be ignorant. Ignorance is the first step to knowledge. The absence of sufficient evidence should never be the reason that you make a decision. If you find yourself in a situation with insufficient information or evidence, use the information you have to make the best decision instead of an uninformed one.

How did we get here. There used to be a time when politicians where just regular corrupt lol. We now live in a time where government and politics are so dividing. There is so much obstruction based on what party is presenting an idea. Nothing is getting done. Trump didn't start this but he took full advantage. What are we to do? How can we fix this state of Politricks?

Embrace the Cliche

5/17/2018
More
We all got exhausted growing up and hearing cliches. Sometimes it seemed like just the nice or right thing to say in the moment. A Lot of cliches come from real truths. The reason that they exist is because they were common concepts to life's curves. The path to success is sometimes found through the most simple principles. Embrace the cliche.

Fallacy Manifesto Part 2: Definitional Retreat

5/4/2018
More
Don't you hate when you are in a debate or argument with someone about something and they try to redefine the subject of conversation to sway the argument in their favor. Sometimes people claim to be part of a group or religion that doesn't actually agree or accept them so they try to redefine the group or try to force them to change their views to match with them. Things are what they are. Whatever you want something to be probably already exists in some form so there is no reason to...

The Fallacy Manifesto Part 1: Hasty Generalization

4/27/2018
More
We all at times have the urge to jump to conclusions. Rare occurrences easily become status quo in our minds. In order to form a credible conclusion we need the right amount of evidence. We need the correct sample size. Don't get trapped making quick judgements. Don't let it hold you back!!!!

Still Just Not Doing It

4/20/2018
More
Focus and then refocus. Never let what you didn't do yesterday, last week or last year dictate what you do today? When you look back at a project that you are obsessed with you always need to look in the mirror and understand that you have to put in more effort. The only reason that you haven't reached your potential is because you still are just not doing what you are supposed to be doing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fear People with Fear

More
The scariest version of a fluffy little rat is when you have it cornered and it feels like it has nowhere to go. Survival instincts will kick in and it will kill you if it has to to get out of that corner. Doesn't matter if you were there to cause harm. Humans react similar to this. When people let fear back them in the corner they become the most dangerous people in the world. Watch your back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One Life To Live

3/8/2018
More
You commonly hear people say that we only have one life to live or simply screaming YOLO. That concept of thinking is often used in context with bad decisions or with staying safe. Why don't we use that for positive decisions and as a motivation to take risks?

You Can Have That ?

Remember old Looney Tunes commercials where Bugs Bunny would trick his enemy to actually take the dynamite from him just because they wanted ownership of the situation. We all find ouselves at times in these situations that we don't realize what we are taking ownership of.

Stop Being Silly

Arghhh. One of the worst things in the world is trying to have a serious conversation or asking a serious question and you have to deal with a nonsensical argument, debate, or answer. Don't you wish that people would just put aside their agendas and ego and have a enlightening dialogue????? You are not alone!!!!

Checkers vs. Chess Part 2: Chess

More
This is the second part in a two part checkers vs. chess mini-mini-series. Have you ever noticed that there are people who make easy things hard and hard things easy for no reason ? We sometimes get stuck playing the game the "right way" Only to realize that the pieces that we have attained don't necessarily belong in the game that we realize we were actually playing all along. We all fall victim to this but being aware of it can at least help to stop it as soon as you can. Part two focuses...

Who’s Side Are You On?

12/1/2017
More
It seems as if people love to be apart of a group but don't necessarily love to strive to be great people. Are you principles important to you. Are they negotiable? Do you love your family member and friends more than you love to stand for what is right.?

Job vs. Life

11/14/2017
More
Are you taking work home every day even though you aren't' physically taking any work home? Do you feel trapped in a job that you hate and that might also possibly treat you unfairly. A job is not much more than a paycheck. You have one life but there are thousands of jobs out there.

Opinion Neutral

10/24/2017
More
Everybody thinks there 2 cents is worth a dollar. Facts and opinions are not always reconcilable and at times opinions are not even valid for making an argument. We get emotionally attached to the things we believe in and attempt to protect ourselves by saying that all opinions are equal to facts or that your opinion should at least be respected. I could not disagree more with that type of thinking.

No one starts at the top, yet most plan to be at the top instead of making plans to ensure all the necessary steps that are needed to succeed are in place. We have to learn to love the journey and process on the path to greatness. Success is the bonus!!
