Let us return to the talent, kill the genius and revive the man who rubbed the lamp, because it is better to believe in the one who had the simple initiative than in the result of three desires that cost us nothing.
This was the theme of one of the conferences I attended in recent days. The approach was oriented to the technological issue, but its essence and the taste it left me and the time I had to ruminate on my rest days is invaluable. An encounter with a Muslim in a mosque in London and the experience with the history of the Parachicos Of Chiapa de Corzo has given me time to think a lot about the subject.
It has already been philosophized enough on the subject of genius and talent, for this is convenient if you have not read pause chewing the taste of the book The Mediocre Man. This, to identify the difference of who makes innovations because it is in their nature and who after seeing what exists reinvents new ways to make them more sustainable.
Last week we have taken important steps on the feasibility of a sustainability model for the municipal and joint cadastre. Go that is necessary, in an area where things already -mostly- they are given, but in which millions are invested every four, six or ten years in a vicious circle of thinking that the cadastre must always be done again. The exercise of the last four years has led me to an interesting process of recycling the existing and experiment with new talents of boys (and girls) who aspire to make a career in this area. What I intended this year I wrote exactly eleven months, And the nature of the human has made some people remain on the way, to rethink expectations, to give one last chance and to include others that we consider out of context.
But every day I am convinced that our constant skating on the topic of cadastre consists of the sectarian positions of always wanting to do the same or the extreme of trying to do totally different things. The talent is in the human being, including the sustainability, we do not occupy bringing extraterrestrials for things that are already known to work and fail to not think about their tomorrow. In the end, I hope that combining old sheet metal instructors, with their fussiness and some stubbornness has an impact on young people who need to learn from their gifts as discipline, tact and experience. Also the satisfaction of seeing the energy of young people who teach the elderly -cases- the arts of digital mapping, Internet and the conviction that habits of consultants can be acquired in a short time.
In a technological world, where wit is evident every second, I think -and everyone- we are sure, that it is necessary to stop to check if really the genius is killing the talent. I love what I've seen my friends smoked on an Ipad that I questioned four months ago, my hands sting to put code to that. I despair of being able to be more involved in the Open Source medium, whose impact we will be seeing in the next 15 years and that will change the way we view IT businesses. But I am also concerned that, conscious of having a fruitful era of genius in the industrial, computer, geospatial, communications, we are unable to influence questions such as:
- If we know that the fossil fuel is ending our planet, why the poems of the powers do not focus to reverse its use? Why the United States does not dare to participate actively in the Kyoto initiative?
- If we know that the planet has the days counted, why the great instances of world-wide consensus that we have created are incapable to act? Why is a person capable of provoking a war and then blames us all for not being able to finish it?
-Because economic interests have drowned the genius of ideas that would give 200 this world years more?
"Why can not anyone do anything with an idiot who does what he wants in that forgotten country of God?" How do we take him there believing the idyll that would end the corruption?
Talent, whose etymological root comes from that currency in the Jewish context and which was immortalized in the parable of Matthew 25, does not necessarily require the reinvention of the world in Ubuntu format. Rather in the reengineering of existing things; definitely what we are looking for is a better way to take advantage of what we already have and to check if many things that we accept as useful are having an impact.
As a brief example; I live in a country -That looks like a lot- where every five blocks there is an evangelical church, where the 25% of its population professes a Protestant faith that added the Catholic Church and other Christian faith religions exceed the 90%. Which means that almost the 100% confesses to believe in principles that are correct and where it is believed that an atheist can not contribute to our moral values.
But in this same country, its impact on society is nil, not to say negative. This, because while the statistics of the religious confessions claim to have experienced high growth in recent decades, the country continues to fall to the last levels of poverty, corruption, drug trafficking, insecurity and other names of underdevelopment. I am aware that it is not the same to confess a religion as to live based on those principles. But we also all understand that it is necessary to return to human talent, to see if it really makes sense to continue making the cake in the same way and with such sectarian thoughts. If the two million people who are clapping in a church on a Sunday morning join their efforts to openly review the impact they are having, they would surely draw firm conclusions; not to change its principles but to renew strategies.
It is so damaging to blame the devil and not act, as to ignore that something bigger than we exist out there -And in here-. Surely there is a need to dig (in here) and check if we are making the talent to its full potential (out there). There must be a way to get rid of this shoddy politician who decides for all of us how to steal our money.
It is necessary to return to the human person as such, to forget so many terms that we have given to what we do and to base our sustainability on imperfect humans. Let's go back to talent, kill the genius and relive the man who rubbed the lamp, because it is better to believe in the one who had the simple initiative than in the result of three wishes that cost us nothing.
While that happens, I want to take this anonymity to thank 3 technicians without whose will and ability it would not have been possible to revive the ingenuity of 9 guys and 5 girls who for a lifetime will be grateful. With this small seed, in 10 years, four of them (Or they) will be dedicated to taking care of their babies, the rest will be reaping achievements that we do not even aspire to. Each one to the 7 PM of a Friday of Coffee with donuts He will laugh at the punishments of Don F! With its cadastral closure until midnight, of the W! When I do not Stop ball, Of the threats of gift M! And who knows, perhaps from this poem by Don G!
