Wrestling With An

Idea

 

I may not know a lot about sports but I do know there is a difference between wrestling and boxing.  Things like Judo, Taekwondo and Karate can also confuse a field where expressions of self-defense collide with different artforms. 



Details matter.  Moves too.  Shifting and Relocating seem associated when we think of moving in one sense but the word and its interpretation is completely different as we transition into a different arena.  

 

Recently, I was reading(actually glancing) at the headlines of a sporting event.  It’s good to be aware of current events, right? I know that a quick glance, a headline or even a blow-by-blow description is not the entire story so I don’t talk with authority when discussing with others.  That doesn’t stop others as we hear and overhear all kinds of things being said, repeated and relayed as “accurate”. 



It’s that way in real estate and in real life - when a move means something to one person but something entirely different to another.  Budge.  Progress and Proceed.  Go then Advance.  Not to mention, it can also mean Walk.  Maybe even Scurry.  In a hurry?  Now, there must be a notion of motion.  Perhaps a Magic Potion.  Or is that Magic Johnson?  Yeah, I know it’s the wrong sport --- now back to my corner.

Good morning Michael! I had no idea you were so muscular underneath that suit. Must be a lot of wrestling

Hi Michael- interesting that just the other day when we were having lunch, I couldn't help but overhear the conversation in the other booth. It didn't take a brain surgeon to know that my booth neighbor was an agent. I could have come up with all sorts of directions this conversation was going and in fact what might have been going on but I was hearing only a part of the conversation. Best not to speculate.

In the end, I think every great marketer, looking to manipulate thoughts understands that it isn't about truth, but about perception.  If you can change people's perceptions, they can find themselves grabbling with the truth and disbelieving it.  It's crazy.

I am a bit scared. 

It seems we have become a society of headlines. Who needs details. No need to wrestle with an idea anymore

Rocky Dickerson - no one in their right mind would ever confuse Clark Kent and Superman, right?   But during the golden age  of television it seemed like a possibility.  Hmm. . .

 

Kathy Streib - ah, yes, speaking of the mysteries of Booths or is that John Wilkes Booth?  I digress. . .

 

Chris Ann Cleland - manipulation or managing the process?   Yes, perception enters each and every situation.

I have found in social media, that headlines rarely reflect the whole story Michael Jacobs

Morning Michael.

For decades I've been into golf, for whatever reason this year it has left me.   I have no desire to play the game.

Michael, Only you could find a way to write about wrestling, Magic Johnson, and Real Estate all in the same message!

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - I think it may go beyond that but social media may make certain activities easier to explore.

 

James Dray - that's interesting to know.  I wonder what in particular changed - I mean beyond "almost everything".

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - I can't always explain the thoughts wrestling around my brain. Sometimes writing about what's going on "in there" helps.  But I do understand that it can seem a bit confusing.  🙃

Wrestling seems like an odd sport to me, but I do have nephews who are/were very competitive at it. Go figure.  I do witness dog wrestling on a daily basis though. And, at times, I have to break it up when one of the guys gets too carried away.

Michael, I was watching the Avalanche in the playoffs, but then they lost.    Very sad!   Didn't need to read the details, already knew them!

Making assumptions without all the information is a dangerous thing. Something that seems to be more and more of a problem these days.

Micheal, wrestling brought up a few memories, but maybe not to share!   😎   Did I get you to smile?

Great sport to choose when getting a point across... reminds me of the days when I was actually running a youth wrestling program.  My Son, 8 at the time, was excited he had learned a new move... I asked him which one and he proceeded to tell me the St Elsewhere.... of course I blinked and said tell me how to execute it.  After the example, I realized it was the half-nelson, lol.  So, it helps to get the right words for the right action.

Joan Cox - uh-oh.

Dan Hopper - thank you for sharing this story.  Definitely one of the classic moves - that is "word confusion".  Or is it wordplay???  🙃
