Thank God For Fools

It sounded clever at first, so upbeat phrases were sold to suckers who paid well for the privilege of getting first cut at acting like innovative leaders.

The fools used them on others and imagined themselves wise. No quick day of reckoning came.

This led to grand comedy. A tractor trailer driver trying to deliver a shipment called the house owner to tell him his driveway could not be traversed by such a large vehicle.

"Don't tell me what you can't do. Tell me what you can do."

Even with broken English, the driver knew he was dealing with a fool who didn't understand the situation and had poor skills for basic assessment.

To demonstrate the fool's error, he drove as far up the driveway as possible so the impossibility and its corollaries could be understood.

Only when the owner saw the predicament caused by the foolish statements he had paid top dollar to learn did he realize that he was sold assertive positivity that was premised on pressuring others into compliance regardless of the situation.

It was a useful weapon for disarming employees with bad consciousness and was otherwise inapplicable.
