More on My View of the World

Before I go further into my thoughts on our earth and its state, I’d like to discuss who I think I am. In many ways, I feel conflicted.

I’m independent, to be sure, and have always sought to be as much myself as possible. That means my need is to be as free as possible and do my thing my way. As stated in previous papers, I never saw myself as or needed to be a leader. I simply wanted to be me and not what others might want or expect me to be. So, I would say that I was “entrepreneurial,” but it was not about making money or attending school and becoming a professional. Instead, I became a merchant mariner, not as a job but to see the world. This held my interest until my monumental meeting with an officer in Okinawa. My path to walk the rest of my life resulted from his influence on me.

I knew I had a way with people. I liked most, and most liked me. I was a good listener, which I attribute to my brothers and sister and their shared time with me. Still, my independent streak asserted itself, and although I listened to many, it was still my way I followed.

I write this brief about my need to be independent even as I suggest in my papers that world government may be our only answer to our world’s survival. Many issues confront us all collectively. While I’m apparently aging well, I have time to think outside of myself and other organizations to consider the world I live in. It is unavoidable. For millions of individuals, it is about survival. For me, it is about “how do we make it better for those millions and the whole world?” Time is running short.

So, I continue—Still independent a person—And to help others.

Sy Ogulnick received a BA from UCLA, Teacher’s Credential from Los Angeles Board of Education and completed phase I (Master’s portion) in a Doctor of Behavioral Science program at California Coast University. Sy leased and operated a summer day camp in LA. He and his wife then purchased virgin wilderness land in Northern CA, where they built and operated a coed summer camp. They moved to Las Vegas, NV, and purchased, built and operated a community children’s program for families staying in a major resort casino in Las Vegas. They have created programs for children nationwide that employed many people and in the process developed successful training programs for personnel. This led Sy to lecture on how to train staff and the creating of community within the workplace. Sy was then invited to speak at professional conferences on how best to hire and train employees, which led to his becoming a consultant in the art of improving relationships in a work environment and eventually to his epiphany that “Leaders are the primary problem and the answer to the personnel issues that arise in the workplace.” Sy has written numerous papers on the subject of interpersonal relationships, leadership and power. He has lectured throughout the United States, has been interviewed by the media and has appeared on many radio and TV talk shows
