Too many emails

The #1 enemy

I do not have a minute to waste; life is too short.

I am up at 5:00 every morning and kicks things off with a fairly regimented routine.

Most of my morning are focused on planning my day. By 8:00, I am ready to tackle every issue that is to be resolved.

With a jam-packed day, there is one major nuisance that I just can’t be bothered with.

Other than Skype interview request from my beloved clients, I hate email.

With email, the whole world comes across at you; it is your agenda number one enemy and it is terrible, not to say a total waste of time.

Let it be also known that I took my work email out of my phone. All those emails would be going unread, waiting in my inbox, magically multiplying the way unread emails seem to do.

You want to retain my services!  

Other than wanting to retain my services, don’t bother me.

You have an urgent issue to resolve and need my services!

It’s all in my auto-reply, which goes to every single recipient who sends me an email:

“Thank you for reaching out. Being overwhelmed with unsolicited requests, I will not be answering your email. This does not mean that I am not available for business! If you need immediate attention or have to urgently deal with a commanding issue, it will be my pleasure to help and assist you. Do not hesitate to call me at the following number: 1-613-449-3278”

Every email does not demand an instant reply or a reply at all. Even if I do eventually get back, there’s no need to apologize if it takes a few hours or even a few days. I slashed the “Sorry for the delayed reply …” from my email vocabulary. I refuse to set the expectation that it’s abnormal to take a little time to reply.

I have opted out of one of the most important communication channels in today’s working world. It is not because everyone else emails that I should. Why should I?

I hate leaving people hanging as much as I hate being left hanging.

We live in a high-volume 24/7 email world. People are glued to their screens. Don’t expect me to act the same way.

Communicating to people that I am not going to play that game is important. This way, they don’t think that I might have fall off a cliff or just feel extremely slighted annoyed or pissed off.

Yes indeed, I am going off the grid for a bit and I will be checking email less frequently.

This doesn’t mean that I will not be immediately taking care of urgent matters or business issues; it just means that if you have some urgent issues to resolve you have to call me. You have my personal phone number.

Just don’t abuse it!

“What do you mean I’m privileged? I know a lot of minorities who have a lot more than I do.”

Do we give too much “space” and importance to minorities?

Today, the only things we read and hear about every day is this outcry about women rights, native Canadian and Americans rights, LGBT rights, Muslims rights and so on and so on, all these people blaming the White Straight Man for their misery.

First, let me set the record straight:

GENESIS 1:

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

My position is quite simple: All men, male and female, whatever their race or color are born equals.

This being said, my question is:

What’s wrong with the Straight White Man, male and female?

The past five decades have not been very kind to the white straight man, male and female. Until the 1960s, the white straight man comfortably sat unchallenged atop the cultural and economic pyramid. He did not have to deal with all these disgruntled people and minorities that we read about and hear complaining every day about their despair and misery.

And then the Straight White Man world exploded.

Today, like it or not, disgruntled people and minorities are everywhere, complaining, blaming and accusing the White Straight Man, male and female about anything and everything.

If the White Straight Man does not agree with their condition, their way of life, their vision of the future, he is conveniently labeled as a racist, homophobic, misogynist individual and personality.

Today, the White Straight Man, male and female, being guilty as charged and condemned without a fair trial, lynched on the public place, is no longer included in anything and no longer part of the conversation. His right to speak does no longer exist.

Freedom of speech for the White Straight Man no longer exist

Unsuccessful, disgruntled, frustrated, depraved people of every minorities confronted with the power structure are now challenging every laws and institutions that they wrongly believe that are confining them to traditional roles in the private sphere.

Instead of empowering themselves by doing what would right to do, sticking to their guns, unsuccessful, disgruntled, frustrated, depraved people of every minorities are now questioning traditional conceptions of gender and sexuality.

Don’t talk to me about privilege.

All these so-called “rights movements” that we see today, instead of promoting and building a fairer, more diverse society and rectifying all possible wrongs that may have happened in the past are only successful in creating more opposition, more animosity and more violence as a direct assault on the well-established moral values of a world global silent community that believe in a better world and rightfully condemned all immoral values.

Today grievance defined the targets of the frustrated minorities. They battle against liberal academics and politicians by stressing multiculturalism and celebrating the contribution of minorities while distorting and minimizing the achievements of white men.

As for the White Straight Man, man and female, they silently fume about companies and schools giving preference to less-qualified people and minorities in an effort to achieve greater diversity.

It is now time to fight back

For the White Straight Man, male and female, it is time to react, it is time to fight back. We are told that we live in a democracy, where everyone has the same rights, the same opportunities. Hello!

Reality Check:

We now live in a democracy where the White Straight Man no longer benefit of the Freedom of Speech right. We now live in a democracy where the White Straight Man, to get a job, shall indicate on his or her résumé that he or she is part of a minority group or a member of the LGBT community.

Here is my take on this:

We do live in a democracy, where everyone has the same opportunities I do and we need to move on. If the fact that you are a woman, black or gay is what defines you, you definitely have a problem, not me.

Talking about privilege only further divides people.
