Chaos, Politics, and the Uncomfortable Nature of Life

You have to play politics to be successful in life. Know it or not. Like it or not.

It doesn’t matter who the politician is, or what the politician is doing. We are all forced into politics, in order to live, in order to survive. Politics is chaotic, again, no matter who, what, where, why, when, or how, politics is being played out (on any stage).

Therefore, we have to come to grips with chaos, all of us. Chaos is a necessary, and healthy, reality, called ‘life.’ You could say this about politics, as well. How well you do at chaos, and politics, will determine, your ultimate success, or failure, at life.

You can’t succeed at anything without learning how to play chaos, politics, chaos in politics, politics in chaos. If you’re not good at politics, personal relationships, the negotiating of personal relationships, and chaos, forget about success.

Unless, of course, you identify success with skipping politics. Chaos. And ‘success.’

Conservation of the circle is the core dynamic in nature.
