Without the Mask and Cape...

Without the Mask or the Cape…
By Nick Ashton, CEO/Founder, Tracometry Group of Companies. 

The definition of a superhero is a stock character, someone like you or me, who goes above and beyond the call of duty to protect the innocent and preserve life.

The Tracometry Group of Companies is not in the Super Hero business, but I do remember watching the Lone Ranger with Clayton Moore and his horse, Silver and Tonto, now being played by Johnny Depp, in the new Lone Ranger movie about to be released. I think it is really pirates in the dessert on horses.

Interesting enough we work with people who need to be called Super Hero and relentlessly do their job and of their best every day.

Keeping the human race from totally killing each other, bullying people, beating up their friends and soul mates, intimidating their co-workers, buying and selling mind altering substances and apparently just being jerks, our Super Heroes in Public Safety, go to work and do their best, each and every day and we, at Tracometry, help them achieve that.

Our tool bag of the trade is overstuffed with experience, proven techniques and importantly positive results, embraced by the agencies who are experiencing the credible community results. Changing communities one zip code at a time, removing criminals from the streets, bring back the revenues owed and importantly, caring about our future.

Uniting people, teaching our children, who are killing each other in extraordinary numbers, that life is precious and a community connected with Trust, Respect and Pride is far better than what is going on daily, through the communities of Any Town, USA.

It is easier for you to watch the videos below and understand why we do what we do and care for our fellow man and woman.

Tracometry Group of Companies is about people, real people who understand and we do not need masks or the cape, and our pure naked inner concerns radiate the strengths as communicators with solutions.

Let your city join our team and change the landscape to one of hope, safety, security, employment and a real future, once again.

P.S. we do own suits and ties.

Are You Ready For the Rejuvenation Rumble?

Unity is the state of being undivided or unbroken
By Nick Ashton, CEO/Founder, Tracometry Group of Companies.

Just how broken are we?  Are we broken like a horse and submissive to a master, bridled, saddled and beholden to a corral?  Our entitlement then, is food and water brought daily and obliging the master with completed workload.

Or, is there a chance the gate has been left open and needs to be nudged and allowed the herd to take flight, leave and spread a message that oppression and subservience is over?  Fending for ourselves in a survival mode, knowing the rules and working for our own goals.

Definition of unity

noun (plural unities)
[mass noun]
the state of being united or joined as a whole:
European unity

ways of preserving family unity

  • the state of forming a complete and harmonious whole, especially in an artistic context:
       the repeated phrase gives the piece unity and cohesion 

  • [count noun] a thing forming a complex whole:

      they speak of the three parts as a unity

Middle English: from Old French unite, from Latin unitas, from unus 'one'
The destruction of our communities, business and life itself is the failure to understand the rules that go along with breathing, eating, clothing and getting along with your fellow man and woman.

Philippians 2:2 - “Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, [being] of one accord, of one mind.

There are so simple and complex meanings of unity within the religious writings of the world.  From the Torah, Bible, Koran and all faith based interpretations.  There is one thing in common, they are united on unity.
Why is our society today destroying what has been with us since the inception of time?  The destruction is more prevalent than ever before.

Young folks may remember this:
“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.” 
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
“Pit race against race, religion against religion, prejudice against prejudice. Divide and conquer! We must not let that happen here.” 
Eleanor Roosevelt

“When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.”
Winston Churchill
Every avid reader:
“All for one and one for all, united we stand divided we fall.” 
Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers

The common denominator is what we have done, and continuing to do to each other over the centuries, decades, weeks and days, in tear each other apart in very distinguishing ways.  Bullying, intimidation, gang violence, domestic abuse/violence, child rape, criminal actions on personal property and the list goes on and on…

The biggest changed started during and after the 1914-18 war, man found there was more beyond the horizon, liked what they saw, stayed, returned and were changed.  Learning more than they ever knew before and the jealousy factor stepped in.  Each war since then has made radical differences:

WW II – Changed the habits of man, smoking increased like never before as each soldier was supplied with endless cigarettes.

Korean War - Alcohol consumption sky rocketed and has continued ever since.

Vietnam – Do I have to tell?  Drugs, just like the Second World War, drugs were available to all.  It moved today from simple “pot” to hard line drugs and today synthetic drugs.

Iraqi and Afghanistan – Abuse, returning military is seeing domestic abuse/violence climb beyond expectation.  Secondly, suicide has escalated to more than a concerning level.

So is there unity in your family, business or even close to being part of your life?

It has to be and it will be, a concerted effort is afoot to bring unity to our youth and what we teach our children, must also be available in the household, community and education facilities.

Children, youth and young adults are part of the team of life, are you?
The Pied Piper Project and its partners, will bring you the opportunity to make that community change.

The Pied Piper Project is the way for the unification of communities, working interfaith groups, inner youth city organizations and cities.

Business is involved, these improve communities require, if not demand employment, new companies, existing business and the ability to start producing and earning a living once again.  Mentoring and training is needed and available.

Come join the Pied Piper and change the communities, your neighborhoods and importantly encouraging a new outlook on life.

Breaking the Routine...

Predictability Personified!
By Nick Ashton, CEO/Founder, Tracometry Group of Companies.

Every single morning, I wake, stumble down the stairs, in the darkness, I switch on the computer, turn the desk light on and grab the headset for the television, so I do not wake the rest of the household.  Understand, my day starts around 3:45 a.m., whilst most of you are zoned out and in the deepest part of your sleep.
Then, the simple routine starts, I have pages on the Internet that I visit in order to retrieve the news and thoughts of the day.  I suppose it is my humdrum, my rut in of life goes full circle. 

This morning, a colleague in Canada, I will call him Greg for security reasons, who is part of GLIA, a group of great thoughtful thinkers, who are changing the world, one beer at a time, eh, has some interesting posts on Google+.  
Today was a glorious one as usual and gives me an idea…

It was an article that talked about the ten commandments of the theatre, no, not those ten commandments, the ones with Mel Brooks, these ten commandments

Anyway, No. 7 caught my eye:

7. When in doubt, break the routine

It got my attention!  When we do the same thing, the same way, every day, we are boring!  In business or our personal family life, repetitious rigmarole is boring…  Even the dogs yawn and walk the other way.

People expect the expected, if they ask you how you are, they expect you to say “fine thanks”, or “doing good.”  Predictability personified!  It is the same in business, we start on the phone the same way every time, and it is our comfort zone so to speak.  Our in person meetings we just plod along, it is a comfort zone that is stifling your business.

We have to break it up to add some spice and enthusiasm in our lives.  By making that change in our daily pattern which allows our mind to visit that fantasy land, smile and make that difference with people.  You, are not the boring individual that is most of society, who are robotic in their daily routines.  Break the routine…

In fact, yesterday at a meeting with a top city official, we talked on a very normal “three guy’s” level, an important meeting regarding city issues that have to be changed to make sure citizens are safe and communities do not fall into W.W. V.  It was human and unpretentious.  Real talk about real matters, that is the difference.

Afterwards we went across the street, my fellow cohort took me to the market place for lunch, his favorite haunt, “Jumbo’s in the Market”, it has been in business nearly forty years and has lunches that people come from everywhere for.

The lady who served us had worked there 33 years and did not look a day over eighteen.  I digress… I placed my order for this dog with beef, they told me it is their signature dish, well not in a dish, but in tinfoil and paper with a plastic knife and fork, that you carefully use, as just a little pressure snaps the thing into deadly pieces.

Another lady comes over and asks if we are together, I could not resist and had to break the routine, I said “no, just holding hands.” 

My colleague took two steps away from me, the lady broke out in deep laughter and a fellow customer made me an offer!

So when in doubt, break the routine….

Oh, was the Jumbo in the Market beef dog, which is fresh beef in a hot-dog roll good?  It was excellent and they are located in the Market Place downtown Indianapolis.

So start today in breaking the routine… it is well worth it!
It will cost you nothing to open your mind and see what you are missing…
