The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
When you’re not even aware of your habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then you no longer control them they control us. Whereas a person with self-awareness is able to exercise a little meta-cognition and say, “Hmm… every time my sister calls me and asks for money, I end up drinking a lot of vodkas. That might not be a coincidence,” a person without self-awareness just hits the bottle and doesnt look back.
As it turns out, the Visionaries were originally a corporation that sold vodkas to the people of Blackreef, a small town in the fictional South American country of South America. The Visionaries wanted to create an island paradise where you could relax without the constant pressure of getting the shitfaced. However, they soon realized that the people they were selling the vodkas to weren’t the people they wanted in their island paradise.
As a result, they started the Visionaries Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that creates and operates vodkas, then uses the profits from those vodkas to help the people of Blackreef. I mean, really. Its their way of saying “Wow, our vodkas are pretty good. Maybe we should try to make them even better.
The fact that the vodkas are pretty good doesn’t mean that the foundation is doing well. Its actually the opposite. The Foundation has been losing money for years and has only been able to turn a profit on one vial of the vodkas they sell and that one vial is only sold for the vial price. The foundation doesn’t have the money to buy more vodkas.
For the past few years the foundation has been losing money, and has been unable to buy enough vials to compensate for the losses. Their only hope for a turnaround is selling more of the vodkas, but the vials they are selling only last about a week. If they could just figure out how to make the vodkas last longer, they would have a financial future.
That’s where the vodkas come in. They’re essentially a giant vitamin vial that is a different recipe every time it’s sold. A company makes money by selling vodkas, and the vodkas are the foundation of their company. The vodkas can only last about a week, and the Foundation can only get so many vodkas per week.
The Foundation is the company’s main function, and each vial can only last a week, so if the Foundation wants to continue, they need to find a way to make more vodkas. The vodkas go into the vial, and if they have an ingredient that makes the vodkas last longer, it goes in.
The Foundation was always going to be a company. You can’t make one without the other. Because one of the most successful business fads of all time, the idea of a company is to get as many workers as possible to work for you. But you can’t make two without one being able to take a bite out of the other.
The reason that the Foundation is going to make vodkas is that they want to sell more. There are some people out there who simply won’t believe that a company that can’t make enough money can still make enough money. They say, “We have to use our shareholders’ money to pay dividends to the shareholders. Isn’t that the same thing?” And those people are wrong. Even if it’s just the shareholders who make the decisions, it’s still the shareholders who make the decisions.
