We just had a dismal jobs report posted yet the jobless rate continues going down. This just highlights the visible disconnect between “government” metrics and real life. The job participation rate is 62.6% :nearly at a forty year low. There are 94.7 million people who are outside the labor force. How dismal is that. Perspective is everything and the status quo is a serious threat to our families and the future of the country.
On that note, for our Friday Filosophy #2016-22, here are some thoughts on status quo:
The status quo sucks.
I don’t accept the status quo. I do accept Visa, Master Card or American Express.
The riskiest thing we can do is just maintain the status quo.
People who demand neutrality in any situation are usually not neutral but in favor of the status quo.
The history of storytelling isn’t one of simply entertaining the masses but of also advising the status quo.
Entrepreneurs are misfits to the core. They forge ahead, making their own path and always, always, question the status quo.
I am not interested in preserving the status quo; I want to overthrow it.
The time is now.
