Well chaos as we know if officially here. Actually it is halfway done.

You get that mad rush from the end of November to beginning of the New Year.

This Christmas had it’s fair share of chaos. From all the dinners to late nights and shopping lists, it was no wonder I was able to keep my head on straight.

In my next post I will comment on the further craziness of the holidays and how it affects our thinking.

Until then try to keep the chaos down to a minimum.

Keeping your thoughts in line with your mouth can be challenging sometimes. It is funny how we do so many random things without much thought but when we have to speak in public, we run into issues. You stutter and clamor through your thinking/

This is what I would call chaos by virtue of planning fail.

When you have electrons flowing to your brain it keeps you sharp and motivated. You also need to know your subject really well. When I sit down and someone asked me about printing I can talk for a while on that subject because I know it well. It is that confidence and familiarity that allows me to talk about it at great length.

But if you were to ask me about astrophysics then that is where the chaos would come in. I wouldn’t be confident and therefore I wouldn’t sound right. I would be confused and stutter and well you get the idea.

One thing to utilize is notes though. When you are not an expert in a certain field then you really should be a good note writer. This ability can catapult you into a leading expert and then eventually you won’t need in depth notes, because you will be more familiar with the topic, but just a few lead notes to keep you on track.

If you feel you need a better way to train your thoughts and be a better communicator then get into note taking. Take come classes or online course that teaches you how to formulate points and headings. This will go a long way in helping you get your thoughts conveyed int he proper manner.

Stop the chaos in your brain and find order today.

 

Back in the day when I lived in Boston I used to get my movie times from the phone. You know before internet was in vogue and phones were attached to the wall? So I would stand there and punch in the number for moviefone and you would get the standard recording every time.

“Hello and welcome to moviefone brought to you by Kiss 108 and the Boston Herald. If you know the name of the movie you would like to see, Press 1 now.”

Sometimes when life gets chaotic for me I think of that line. It just goes over and over in my head like a broken record. Sometimes I feel like that is what chaos is. The endless mundane repeating moments in life.

Chaos is better known as a scene where everything is strewn everywhere and there is no order. It can be a lot like a playground full of kids. It is amazing how no one collides into each other more often running around with absolutely no purpose, or so it would seem.

Chaos can be like the streets of NYC where millions of New Yorkers have places to go and are in a hurry to get there. Have to ever been in a subway in rush hour? It is INSANE! But it happens everyday and mostly without incident.

Chaos can traffic on a hot summer day when the roads are being worked on seemingly for years on end. This was common in Boston. You never knew what they were doing but you always saw the orange construction cones and netting. Most secure job market there is.

Chaos can be the beach during high tide. Waves crashing in and removing sand by the ton each and every day. The creatures of the shore pay no mind though. Just a part of life.

Chaos can be the delivery room at the hospital. Mothers be screaming and babies crying.

Chaos is everywhere my friend.

How in chaos did you get here? That’s for another time.
