THE TRUTH ABOUT PREDICTIONS

Predictions-122608L_13

Prediction: n. communicating a subset(s) which will exist with a probability in the future

Most of us are frequently good at predicting the near future knowing that we will have to pay rent, pay the mortgage, go to work, go shopping for food or clothes, and probably have to have enough money for car maintenance or repairs.

Project into the future more than a year and chances are that most of us will not be able to predict the future very well. Predicting the future 10 or 50 years ahead is impossible to do for most and some of the predictions are dire. There is the possibility of financial collapse or depression, loss of job, possible divorce, a major health issue, and less likely the possibility of war which has ravaged the world historically.

Fortune tellers and horoscopes are popular because most sub consciously feel that they have an advantage if they can know the future or predict it. The stock market is rigged favoring big money investors but there are still many relatively poor investors trying to predict the future and still making very risky money losing investments. Many couples have a gut feeling that a relationship will not work out but still sometimes get married hoping for a miracle of happy cohabitation.

The most successful humans are those who plan for the future by acquiring new useful knowledge and skills which will help them get a better job. Some save money to invest in a home or real estate which hopefully will be useful in retirement.

The economic system does not encourage savings or thrifty behavior and the financial future of many is in doubt as well as the financial future of the nation which is so far in debt that financial collapse is imminent.

Is the future going to be better for you or worse? Only time will tell and unfortunately most of us are at the mercy of big money maneuvers which only the very rich can predict.

THE TRUTH ABOUT INCOMPETENCE

Incompetence

Incompetence: n. not having many of the requirements essential to an identified subset(s) and not achieving a goal(s)

We have all been exposed to incompetent humans in politics, in organizations, in professions, and on the job.

Frequently the ones in leadership positions are the least competent because they may have emotional intelligence and can manage other humans to some extent but they frequently don’t have the necessary skill set to make achievable desirable goals and see to it that the right information and qualified humans exist to achieve those goals.

Managerial skills are different than technical skills and a manager trying to lead technically skilled personnel who has little grasp of the logic behind the technology will frequently fail to make good decisions which benefit the organization in the long duration.

Lengthy experience eventually does eliminate incompetence to some extent. That is why employers prefer an experienced worker to an unexperienced one because they know that the probability of an inexperienced worker making more than his or her share of mistakes is rather great and they want to avoid those mistakes as much as possible.

Job mentoring or apprenticeship is not very common in the United States and that is one major reason why new graduates find it hard to get employed straight out of school. The fact that liberal arts is job poor is the major reason why new graduates can’t find work right away.

The sad fact is that the educational system is producing armies of improperly educated incompetent graduates who aren’t prepared for the new technological realities of the 21st century.
