Rewarding Incompetency

Greetings Happy People,

One way or another, we see this happen in our lives.

We look at one person and wonder, "How the heck did they get this job?"

Was it by relative, default, or through some "good ole' boy" system? One could only imagine.

No matter how they got this job, chances are that they show their experience by their own incompetency. The mind-blowing part is that the majority of these people that hire them fail to see this!! Instead, they choose to select them due to some irrelevant connection.

No matter what the mindset is, hiring people through this process can be dangerous to a company, a society, and a government!!

No one can win on either side if they choose to pick someone this way.

It can also look bad for the people that use this process to hire someone. Sooner or later, people will ask the following question:

"Is there someone that is better for this job?"

"Is that the best they can do?"

"Who's butt did he have to kiss to get this role?"


It is a shame that this still happens in today's society. Little do they know, the people that hire, choose, or vote these people into a position, will pay for it in the long run. When it comes to select a person for a particular role, it would be wise to look at one's credibility and experience. Anything less may be a bargain, but are folks willing to pay for it?

On all levels I see this happen. Is it right? Nope. Could things be handled better? Maybe. For all I know is that the people that choose to reward incompetency are hurting themselves in more ways than one.

Instead, reward people for doing a good job. Praise people by promoting them for their hard work. It is these people that should earn the kudos for the right things they have done. Whether it be big or small, they deserve it for the right reasons.

If only the rest of the world can do this, can you imagine the heartaches that would be saved?

That is all I have for now. Take care and thank you for your time and attention.
