An Article on Directness and Efficiency

Sunday, August 28, 2016

Do not be fooled by the title, this is an article on priorities, and honesty is the highest priority. When you render a service, directness and efficiency is the ultimate honesty and ultimate highest priority. Honest, working existence is directness and efficiency, all else is commentary. If my articles seem like business transactions made into self help literature that works, that is accurate. Directness and efficiency create the ultimate honest priority that is most important in any situation that counts in life. I mean think about it, indirectness and inefficiency is the hallmark of all that does not work, no matter how great and far reaching an idea or a business plan may seem at the time you are drafting it. If it is put into action and it does not meet the criteria, then it is indirect and inefficient.

If it does meet the criteria, it is direct and efficient and worthy to use and even repeat until it does not work and then it changes to something that does when it is efficiently run. Indeed, if I could make it ridiculously plain the value of directness, adaptability and efficiency in one word, I would say logical. If I could make it two words, I would say logical reality. It is said that “necessity is the Mother of invention”? Well, efficiency could be the Father. Directness could be the wise “uncle and aunt” of efficiency and necessity that genuinely and valuably helps it all along.

Now, sure, logic may be my strong suit, but to get creative on you, and honesty, directness and efficiency does not have to be uncreative, either. Anything that does not work, yet is practiced as if it does work is inefficient and indirect, no matter how “acceptable” the action “is”.

What is the meaning of acceptable and thinking inside the box, it is self limiting, uncreative and self destructive. If not, beating your head against a wall for no reason really does produce many rich and amazing results.

Now, sure, directness is always key to desirable results, so is efficiency. That is the reality of the situation. Efficiency is the strength of life, for hard driving productiveness is the reality behind all realities. I did not say aggressiveness, I said hard driving productiveness. I remember thinking about this fact that no one gets anything done without some type of aggressive productiveness behind it. So, knowledge is not power until it is applied. What is application? It simply means, when you do something. That is it. Oh, I can stop there. But would it be logical to stop there. Action happens in consistent cycles of realistic priority when properly done. So, the key to directness and efficiency is consistently productive action, always.

My name is Joshua Clayton, I am a freelance writer based in Inglewood, California. I also write under a few pen-names and aliases, but Joshua Clayton is my real name, and I write by that for the most part now. I am a philosophical writer and objective thinker and honest action taker.
I also work at a senior center in Gardena, California as my day job, among other things, but primarily I am a writer. As a kid I did construction work with my Dad which taught me many things like plumbing, hard labor and electrical systems, and I took notes for my Dad’s home poker games at my Uncle Johnnie Gilmore’s house, so I have a lot of life experience, sure. But I went to Cal State Dominguez Hills College, UCLA, and El Camino Junior College and learned a lot, but never got around to getting a degree, just lots of money spent, good grades and some credits. So, here I am currently freelance writing and working at a senior center for a living.
But enough details of my life, what I do is not what I am. So here is what I enjoy, I enjoy reading, listening to music (everything from Beethoven, Strauss and Bach to The Meters, ELO and The Band and Dylan/Garcia and The Grateful Dead also, when they were the Grateful Dead. Well, as you can tell by SOME of the music I listen to, I am a very eclectic person. I am also a deep science fiction fan and as said before, a lover of books. If I were to go into everything it would take thousands of words and I only have about three hundred words here, of which I have used 290 of already. Well, I end here. Thanks. Joshua Clayton.
