Seniority — how long a person has held a particular job — may have some legitimate uses in managing public schools....

It seems to me that our past is manifesting in our present, which leads me to ask, how do we change the past? If you've have followed any of my other post you already know the answer, you can't change the past. It is not the past that needs to change; it is us who need to change. You can't change the words that were spoken, the inappropriate contact, your past environment, or anything from the past so all that is left is you.

God allowed you to make it through that past and he did so for a reason and that reason was not so your past could consume you. A man who loses his wife after 50 years of marriage can't go back and undo the wedding, the marriage, or even his wife's death. He finds that change has to happen but he also discovers that change is not easy. I understand the changes we need to make are not easy but we need to understand the necessity of the change or our hurts, habits, and hang-ups will continue to consume us.
We must stop dealing with our past by fretting, guilt, self-pity, discouragement, and regrets. Would of; could of; should of’s" lead to despair and hopelessness. In short, to deal with our past we must enter into repentance. We have to do what Paul talked about in Romans 12:2, be transformed by the renewing of our minds. A change of mind leads to a changed life. When is a door not a door? When it’s ajar. Now rethink that simple question. When is a door not a door? When it’s something else. Change does not take place when certain changes take place but only when there is actual change.
You know what I like about being 66 and not 26 or 36? I actually feel that I’ve gained some wisdom about life, the universe, and everything. I feel comfortable in my own skin. I don’t need to prove anything to anyone, or earn other persons approval. Life is not a competition where you’re supposed to beat others to the finish line. There’s nothing wrong about being an aging man. I haven’t lost my love for life, the passion, or the vitality. I still have all my wits intact. I enjoy the simple things like a cold beer, a good meal, a thoughtful conversation, and a good looking hat.
You're right! Seniority should NEVER prevent an incompetent one from being FIRED.
Competency and skills with 'good results' should be the norm for putting someone in a place of leadership in any job; unfortunately today the most INEPT and incompetent folks hold those positions in our govt and most businesses. And we wonder why over past 6 years things are falling apart in our nation.
November: Vote for an adult for congress; stop the liberal insanity and childishness; oust these current dems!!!
