When I read studies from such eminent and august institutions such as Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital that commitment is largely influenced by a person's sense of purpose, feeling of personal impact and overall trust in their organisation, I actually begin to wonder that if I were to stand on my head, would the blood rush to my head in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction; whether the moon rises in the West and sets in the East south of the equator and whether the surf breaks from right to left or left to right.
Please, let's have no more of this inanity.
Doesn't everyone know that productivity is largely affected by the quality of human relationships including cooperative, social group moods and interaction. Or must it now be postulated by the high and mighty before it's actually taken notice of?
Have we, as free thinkers, progressed so far that we have become brainwashed into the Emperor's New Clothes syndrome? Have we really lost the ability to think freely and actively and challenge the conventions that surround us? Have we become so conditioned that we MUST seek someone else's validation and verification for any original thought we might have?
Stop the wheel and let me off, please. Conventions, you can keep 'em. Enjoy the taste of your own bathwater, I'm off to enjoy something a little more stimulating; in a bottle, with a label marked Merlot. Cheers !
