Stormy Daniels

So then we have the most powerful man in the world becoming weatherman for a day and trying to extend (to Alabama) the impact of hurricane Dorian using a “sharpie” permanent marker. Somebody please tell him that just sleeping with a lady called “stormy Daniels”, doesn’t necessarily qualify him as a weather expert. Ironically many of us have a lot of close ones around us holding “sharpies”- people who haven’t even had a “stormy Daniels” type experience in life, but somehow seem to qualify as an expert in all of life situations- relationships, investment, parenting, job change, etc. Just look around you, who are the “confidants” we run to when the shit hits the fan, or when we need a big decision made? Just some glib-talking, “maama” in the family with a “sharpie”, because he is family, “knows it all” and professes to have our best interests? Hmmm. As much as I sound like the guy with the “sharpie” at this moment, 🥶 … just remember- take advise, but do your homework, trust your instincts and make your own decisions, because you have to remember, that whatever your strategy – you have a 50% chance it will go wrong, and it’s therefore best you make the decision, so you’re atleast fully invested to see it through and take full responsibility for the outcome. And finally while we’re at it, don’t fall for the “fallacy of sunk costs”, and continue to invest in a decision that’s probably not going anywhere- but south. We all have done it- you pursue on a decision not based on the desired outcome anymore, but purely based on the time, effort or money you’ve already put in. It could be a career, a marriage, mundane things like sitting through a movie, knowing full well within the first 20 minutes, that this was a bad choice, or encouraging your kid to go through that engineering degree because you paid a capitation fee, fully aware that he’s just not cut out for it in the 2nd year itself. Cut your losses, bail out. So there, if you’re an American and you need one reason to vote POTA back, it’s this – he’s taught us all a lot more about life than we’re willing to accept. 🤦‍♂️ #weekendguru
