Latent Managers

Who shaves the barber? The refrain in this post is going to be:

"everything needs to be managed and the manager and the managed can not be both at the same time."

If this sounds obvious, well, it isn't! Labourers out there, forget about contracts, projects or assignments and think about 'living' a bit. I will explain why all decent looking things have a manager on top and why life is not an exception.

Parasitic growth of embryo/foetus is managed by womb. Babies are managed by their mothers. Childhood is managed by parents and caring neighbourhood; our education by teachers and school. The work we do my managers and the managers by their managers and so on.

What it is that we do that goes unmanaged? Depending on our choice, marriage is a stuff that can go unmanaged if we by any chance believe we are on top of it! Parents and relatives have tended to manage marriage. If we chose to believe that we can manage our own marriage we will be successful as much a barber trying to dress his hair himself. If you are wondering what else is managed? Until and after our death not only cremation is managed by the last and the 16th ritual but also memories, by the anual day of ancestors.

With the increased ecomonic activity and independece, being humble is more difficult. Some never get to feel the need for such a 'behaviour'. Arrogance when directed at some latent managers of our lives will harm and we wont even know we are our enemies!
