Importance of being earnest

Noticeable things don’t happen. You just notice things and conclude that they were noticeable.

However, sometimes you are supposed to do noticeable things. Typical in national politics or in corporate environments. Let’s say when you are giving a presentation, or a public speech, or when you want to highlight a point in a strategy meeting, or in job interviews. And peculiarly, you cannot afford others knowing it that you deliberately made something noticeable. Basically, you have to make the deliberateness of noticeability non-noticeable, deliberately. πŸ™‚

Its tough. Its a skill. I hate it.

I just heard from a friend, application of this skill in his love life. I’ve heard hiding something from your beloved before. I’ve also heard pretending, and over-expression of affection. But making things noticeable unnoticeably. Bit too much for me. Gets too complicated to handle. And grows anxiety in me. But the friend seemed enjoying it. So I enquired – ‘Has it got any purpose, or is it just for the kicks?’. He suddenly felt ‘noticed’, and changed to topic. And I get away with my anxiety unnoticed. πŸ™‚

Too much of a mind game. Worth blogging. I hope Machiavelli might have written a book called The Princess. πŸ™‚

    “But making things noticeable unnoticeably”

    is just a polite way, where its important to make the noticeable get noticed without the other person noticing that that you thought it was worth bringing it to notice. (Save you from being judged :))

    And specially in love life or social life its more important when you don’t want to be impolite or hurt some one and still get the message accross.

    Satyam bruyat priyam bruyat……

    it is a skill

    And ofcourse, as with any skill, it depends upon how you (mis)use it.

    I wish that I can learn this skill too πŸ™‚

    Goodness I am hooked.
