What has jargonisation done?

The corporatisation, sterilisation, jargonisation and homogeneity of words used in both speech and written communication…stop…just read that again and look at the words what do they say to you? There is no emotion or humanity in those words.

We use words like actionable, leverage, diversity, disconnected, the long tail, skillage, siloed, uplevel, work-force reduction, right-sizing and the list of these cold and sterile words could fill a book.

We have removed love, kindness, understanding, compassion and humanness from how we now communicate. We are afraid of plain, warm and understandable speaking.

We use words that remove feeling, they are bland, overcomplicated and devoid of a human touch that allows the recipient to feel seen and to feel any warmth towards another soul.

We have removed love from our lives and replaced it with coldness.

Passive and safe

The more we reduce risk from our lives as humans, the less progress we make. We become stagnant and lacking…the safeness removes the ‘frisante’ needed to create invention and daring.

Without risk, there is no point in trying anything new.

Risk is what gives us the charge we need to try something new knowing it may or may not work. Risk is at the outer edge of the circle, it is the threat of danger that builds the excitement and it’s why we love life, it is why we break out of the circle and create change. We break the rules and without that…well, life becomes controlled.

The never-ending craving for no risk in life as humans is leading us to a sterile, homogenised world of compliance and slavery. Simple cogs in the machine…passive and safe.
