While reviewing old mail from the list and seeing how a number of
people agree that changes for the better are OK, but that when
you are the guy digging the ditches that make a suggestion for
a change, no one seems to listen. I have noticed that is not only
a complaint with the scouting power structure, but with many
political and corperate structures as well. It seems to me that
there are two ways to get people to listen to a good idea.
One get out of the ditch, and find a position of "higher" authority
as a platform, or remain in the dirch and get everyone else in the
ditch to help you make enough noise to get attention. Problem with
that method, is that you are still working in the ditch when you
get done, and if you MADE trouble for those in the POWER stucture,
it will be harder to get out of the ditch.
So as I forward my application to begin training for those higher
positions in the power structure, keep making noise in the ditch.
Maybe someone will listen.
