To Some, Friday Cannot Come Soon Enough!


What Excuse is it Today?
.By Nicholas Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group 

Why is the world full of excuse creating people?  

They say knowledge is power, why then, do people find lame excuses not to do something and pre-judge the requester? 

Is it ignorance or do they know not what they do?

So where am I going with this?  

Simple, in our line of business (Crime/Predictive Analytics, Community Crime Mapping, Social Media Interaction, Fraud and Community Rejuvenation), we are viewed by some, as a threat, a threat against the pure insecurity of the individual’s job.  They think we are going to take it away, in what in their mind, is rightfully theirs.

“It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.”
George Washington


Or…

“He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.”
Benjamin Franklin


I have heard excuses from professionals worldwide and I must admit in my early days, I might have used a few myself.  The difference is, someone showed me the errors of my ways.  We are never too old or stubborn to continue learning.

Yesterday was a prime example of a “pre-judger”, when someone starts the conversation with the word’s “I am the assistant *****, and have been told to call you, this some sort of sales call, looked at your web and we don’t have the budget, so we are not interested.”  I know that I dealing a person who is pre-judgmental and is totally insecure.  In fact, they may have drawn the short straw and was told to get rid of me.

Firstly, the budget issue is a non-starter, to begin with!  Of course, it is not in the budget, you have not had the common sense to even listen to what it is and I can tell, that being a mind reader, is not on the resume.  Making the statement it is some sort of sales call, is used as a “put-down” in most cases, an insult if you like.  

We would have no world without salesmen and women!  It is a world of marketing from the day you are born, ‘til the day you die and someone sold your family the funeral package, including the urn, casket, headstone and the dead floral arrangements.

I feel so sorry for the pre-judgers of the world and those they represent.  In a, protect and serve situation, this is dangerous for the citizenry and the fellow workers.  To refuse to meet with someone or an entity that is a successful part of society, who is not wanting to take away the, so called power of authority, but to enhance and assist a community to be safer, is foolish and an insult to those they supposedly serve.

The CommSmart Global Group  Group of Companies is a Circle of Fire in the quiver of public safety, which includes law enforcement, EMS, Fire and all parts of government that interface with the public.  Professionals, through and through and are able to take, the so-called slighted remarks, of those that really do not understand the world of law enforcement in the year 2017 and beyond.  It is they that slapped the faces of their citizens, you missed my cheek completely.

I will tell you, our team, across the country and around the world, are passionate about what we do.  We are serious in the regard of solving the crime, understanding the now of events.  As former law enforcement, which the majority of our staff are, we have the empathy of the situation.  Our low key, listening, and understanding is like no other company in this industry of public safety, we care from the bottom our hearts, living and breathing the day to day events of professional public safety officials and their hierarchy of management.

Just because of a couple of us, I included, have strong British accents, don’t think we are trying to, tell you what to do, or just because we are from the other side of the pond, we have no idea of how it is done in this country of the USA.  This is our country, we live here and are dedicated to making the communities we live in, safer for all.

Where was I? Oh, back to the individual that started all of this yesterday. What you did is proving my point, excuses do not cut it in 2017.  I am able to face the individuals, shake their hand, sit across the table and be logical human beings, who can learn from each other and impart knowledge and understanding, that there are others that know more than us and are willing to share.

“Do not make excuses, whether it's your fault or not.”
George S. Patton Jr.


So is there an assistant *****, or mayor of a city that would like to start over and support the citizens of their municipality with law enforcement tools that can make life safer, more cost effect with the resources and up to speed on the daily changes in the world?  Or do I just use my favorite four letter word?

NEXT!
