Negotiating with the ‘Law of Cause and Effect’!


Prevailing issues are often left uncovered, for fear of ‘Opening a Can of Worms’ and a call for Change!

The law of ‘Cause and Effect’ is enlightening in itself.

Someday, Somehow, in Some way, Whatever is done will produce an outcome. And when that happens, a lot of Blame, Regret, including the Loss of Faith, Funds, and Emotional unpleasantness will take shape. Do we really need to wait for such a time to trigger a change or is it better to intervene early and influence the outcome?

For effective intervention to take place, individuals within the scope should have and/or must identify the potential outcome and communicate ways to redirect activities towards a more desirable outcome and work towards minimizing potential negative impact. What will be the price of not doing so versus the price if it is done. This negotiation requires intelligence, courage, management skills and mostly a method, to correctly accomplish the intervention each time.

A thought to leave with: Is there something in your organisation or life that you currently need to ‘change’ or negotiate with?

Make it happen


The need to make our home, workplace, business, society and country better in every way, often drives us to think and make changes. This effort can be difficult in many ways to an individual even if he or she is equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills. The greatest stumbling block more often than not, is the individual’s inner-desire to make it happen. Sometimes something has to happen for the inner-desire to surface and form action. This is often a crucial starting point to many successes. Waiting for the right time and the right type of event or events to happen for such a trigger can both be good and expensive. Why not trigger it!
