Process, Not Outcome

Filed under: Links to Greatness,Social Commentary — williamthecoroner @ 11:48

One of the good things about blogs is the opportunity for really intelligent people to make themselves heard. One of the bad things about blogging is the blow to one’s ego when really intelligent people say things that you think but in a much more thorough and articulate manner. Blunt Object does it again with his post process-people.

Ignoring the process leads to focus on short-term goals. It doesn’t matter HOW you obtain the laudable result, the only thing that matters is the result itself. Indeed, that opens you up to a whole big lot of unintended consequences. See?

Power is transient. If you want processes to keep your political antagonists/enemies/rivals/whatnot from ramming their agendas down your throat, it would be wise not to circumvent processes that keep you from doing the exact same thing.
