Life Skills (Continued)

Standards and Measures vs Metrix


at which point do you show compassion in situations like watching a child assess the risk of being hit by the mother or father but still take the chance of approaching.

A child's confidence crumple in the face of discrimination (obesity and/or race ) - when do the carers go and make them whole again quickly so that they can carry on again.

Or workers still trying to assess their work - life - balance but risk going out in the community and find that standards and measures have reversed (sic) and there is continued and aggravated aggression. Who is going to rescue those people who have held things together in the past across political parties and racial groups, perhaps not too well.

Surely fair is fair both ways. Chances should be given earlier rather than later.When might it be too late ?

The question of personal responsibility becomes harder when you look at both sides of the equation.

My metrix would be based on trust in men of their word based on past experience and boy,haven't they disappeared in certain professions.

Happily so far I can see men who hold true to their word where the application of science and soul/heart is pure.

As you say, the question of personal responsibility becomes harder when you look at both sides of the equation.

What is harder to accept though is that one usually ends up taking an option that best serves his or her interest or survival.

While I would wish that human beings would have a soul/ heart that is pure in thought, word and action, my present matrix would definitely comprise of how a given action would affect each individual concerned. This, I would hope would reduce unfairness or being judgmental.

The responsibility then lies with the individuals concerned to make their needs known and the carers to read those needs. Easier said than done.

Equal Opportunities but some need more time and effort.
And just how much responsibility should one take off another's shoulders - they may need to rely on some of their own abilities/experience.

Another rule of thumb - if you have taken charity it is so much easier to give charity with no thought of Returns on Investment.

Should parents expect so much of their children in old age?
Dropping by and saying thank you now and again would be appreciated.
Making sure they are not living in poverty would be more than good.

Then there's my aunt aged 80+ ( my dad's siblings were numerous ) looking after her son's mentally disabled son because she can.

Should parents expect so much of their children in old age?

Oh.yes. Definitely. When a child is born into this world, (s)he depends solely on the parents. The child expects so much of the parents and continues to do so for a long time, in some cases even after they have left their parent's home. So, in their old age, parents as they become dependent are validated in expecting so much of their children.

This is a profound comment. Does one communicate their expectations along with the action?

Coming back to the comment, it is unrealistic to expect everyone to broadcast their expectations with each action. Although, it would solve many problems.

What I meant by a matrix of action and options of outcome was that one needs to think clearly about what the others' stakes are, how the other would gain or be affected by a certain decision and then proceeding accordingly. This might reduce conflict or at least, give an understanding of a conflict when it occurs. In most cases of conflict, one is right in the middle of it before one realises he or she is there and then is too involved, to make a clear survey of the situation, the causes and ways to defuse the problem.

The above suggestion might not apply to all situations. It is not practical to always think deeply before one acts. Further, one can't realistically think of all probable outcomes and hidden motives of others.

Nonetheless, the above could be applicable to team situations and to find an appropriate working mode.

I think that would be very useful in a collaborating doctors (sic) - patient situation.

Generic Viagra is the medicine that is recommended by doctors worldwide for erectile dysfunction. It is the chemical composition of both forms of this drug and helps to cause erection on stimulation of the penis by inhibiting the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 which causes smooth muscle relaxation and a better erection.
