Doc Harris, do we not hope against all hope that the Import of this Disturbing Insight is not lost on those who could Benefit from it the Most? Alas, if they Fail to Comprehend the Imminent Implications!
Maple leaf - -as a former teacher of several disciplines the underlying fear or apprehension that your subjects would not perceive your intentions, purposes, or motives has perpetually permeated my thoughts and plans in organizing a presentation which would be understood and accepted. A teacher has to open every door in a students mind to see which 'room' is ready to be filled with information. And what works with one person won't work with another. Repetition is the 'key' to learning and acceptance. Consequently I persist in making my 'talking points' as compelling as possible - giving variety to whomever the audience may happen to be. I attempt to be prudent - as the Bible states, - "- - do not throw your pearls to pigs."
Every business has a diverse group of participants, and the Beef BUSINESS is no exception. But, because most are self-employed entrepreneurs and are willing to assume risks for their own well-being and profit they tend to be, understandably, skeptical and not easily persuaded or convinced, which makes a teacher's efforts more challenging. When a person thinks that a new concept is their OWN idea - then it is more easily acceptable.
I said all that to say this: LEARN AND UNDERSTAND EPD's and how to USE them!
