7 Tips For Dealing With Health Advisers

A facebook friend asked me if she should tell her health adviser about a symptom as she was afraid the adviser would prescribe mroe drugs to her. This was my response.

1. Always and only do what you know to be right, regardless of whom it upsets, offends, ticks off or disappoints. After all, you have to live with you.
2. Endeavour to do it in a manner that minimises upset with others.
3. Always provide an adviser with ALL the facts you have on the subject so they can give you the best advice relevant to your circumstances.
4. If you do not understand something, ask them to explain it.
5. If you do not agree with their advice or recommendation, ask for what alternatives are available and the data that they have that supports their recommendation.
6. If that does not resolve the disagreement you have with their advice, tell them the data you are operating on and what you consider to be your best course of action and see what they say. Then revise your stance or not, as YOU see fit.
7. NEVER surrender to a domineering or authoritarian attitude or take advice with which you do not agree given in that manner. Those are almost always wrong as they are an attempt to overwhelm you rather than assist you. The two are not compatible.

A Cartoon on Management

Again I saw this on Facebook and thought it worthy of comment.

A Cartoon On Management

When top level guys look down they see only shitheads.
When bottom level guys look up they see only assholes.

How many times have I heard a variation on that! End of humour, beginning of management tip.

As time goes by it becomes easier and easier to overestimate the capabilities of people and to expect more of them than that of which they are capable or trained well enough to deliver. Understanding the purpose for doing something and being grooved in on the actions required to attain the product are vital if production in viable volume is to be attained and morale to be maintained.

The Biggest Threat to World Peace is the USA

In 2006, while speaking in Alabama, Gen. Wesley Clark recounted his conversation with a general at the Pentagon in November, 2001. Gary Leupp quotes Clark: I said, “Are we still going to invade Iraq?” “Yes, Sir,” he said, “but it’s worse than that.” I said, “How do you mean?” He held up this piece of paper. He said, “I just got this memo today or yesterday from the office of the Secretary of Defense upstairs. It’s a, it’s a five-year plan. We’re going to take down seven countries in five years. We’re going to start with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, then Libya, Somalia, Sudan, we’re going to come back and get Iran in five years. I said, “Is that classified, that paper?” He said, “Yes Sir.” I said, “Well, don’t show it to me, because I want to be able to talk about it.”
