Smarts Hold It Together

Sometimes one feels full of despair knowing the problems caused by people in the surrounding environment. It can be difficult to be on the strong side of smarts, because stupid people with bad reasons for doing silly things make life difficult. This happens on the job, at home, it happens everywhere, even at the highest levels of organizations. Knowing what's best for the organization as a whole doesn't always mean that the best ideas and people win out in the end. Often, it's a struggle just to keep one's head above water in a sea of stupidity. However, it's important to not lose faith, to not be silent, to keep pushing ahead with good ideas and to voice the problems as well as the necessary solutions. Every organization needs smart people, even when the smarts are not acknowledged, not the winning ideas. Breathe through the dumbness and know that you are one of the few who is holding it all together. The world needs people who patiently trod through the bad ideas until, eventually, the best ones emerge. If an organization consistently makes bad decisions, know that there are others out there who are ready and willing to hire a beautiful mind. Struggling to stay afloat of ignorance sometimes means that a change is necessary. Whether you stay in a position or seek a new one, rest assured that you are not alone in knowing that good ideas fall on deaf ears. Become skillful in voicing your smarts and convincing people that your way is the right one. Know what you're saying, be confident in speaking and try your best to invest your ideas in the most fruitful places.
