3/1/19 - Death Before Nature, Nurture Debate Solved

Every now and then we take some liberty to say something edgy from our soap box. The style I use on our social media is a Banksy-esque format, where a cartoon stenciled version of Lindsey Mathews is spray painting some cutting words with her pirate flag draped step ladder close by. If you’ve seen one of these before, you know what I mean.

The latest one brings up a poignant topic. The age old nature versus nurture conversation is continually kept in vogue by what feels like a human tendency to finally have a justifiable reason we can point and say, “See! It’s not my fault. I can’t help it. My hands are tied.” It’s as if the beautiful of free will comes with a burden most of us would like to give up for certainty without judging reflection.

Here’s the gist about the DEUCE Banksy-esque proclamation shown here:  

You might as well tap your well completely before you concern yourself about what talents you were or weren’t born with. My guess is that there’s never been a man or a woman who’s tapped their potential with time to spare in his or her life. Concerning yourself with deterministic, nature-over-nurture thoughts, then, seems like a direct distraction from your own development. Get busy being coachable, instead.
