“You can’t work around issues until you know what they are!”

I know the Title is a BFO (blinding flash of the obvious) but it sheds some light on what we in the military would call a CF (Charlie Foxtrot – more affectionately known as a Cluster F___)  which results in a quagmire of misunderstanding that is simply FUBAR (F’d up beyond all recognition).

That’s a lot of jargon to throw out there early in the morning . . .

The simple truth is that, like it or not, we’re all in this together, and it would behoove ALL of us to slow down a bit and take the time and attention necessary to acknowledge any misunderstandings (issues) present so that we CAN work around them.

Wouldn’t life be a lot easier if we named issues as they surfaced and invited Spirited and ENGAGING dialog to work around those issues?

Alternatively, we could hold our cards close to our chest and avoid direct communication as we “negotiate to the death”.

You will reep what you sow . . . ALWAYS!

Clarity of goals and focus are essential.

If the main issue is lack of unified purpose/focus – STOP!



Matters not to me how fierce the negotiation is . . .

Fierceness tends to propagated from un-named issues and without naming the issues, no-one knows whether staying in the game is worthwhile.

Just sayin’
