This Blog offer some unexpected posts - today on politics and passion i.e. #metafloorball

Historically, old philosophers ended up with two main political ideas, divided by the line - on how we should share things.
Either with a strong government and sharing resources within that system, or relying much more on individual initiatives.

Other early historical ideas in politics divided the lines between keeping things like they have been or be open to new paths of development.
Modern technology seems to have settled this later thinking since it seems like obvious that change in itself and new innovations is what drives the economy. Any Amish person would probably argue about this position though.

Other modern political ideas have been added at recent places aiming at a focus on the environment or the streams of immigration for instance.
But in the larger picture these political ideas are more not a developed political philosophy but tend to be more - like - one question matters.

OK, Then as the Internet jumped up, 15 years ago or so, some people claimed we entered a new era with a possible new economy. False or not? Probably depending upon who you'd ask?


Our own reflections has recently wandered from the old political ideas based upon how to share resources in the society more to some sort of a political quality or passion perspective.
What is good in the society? And where are the politicians that wants to make good, do efficient quality, and where is this very political party? A political party based upon passion or quality as the main question that drives their own philosophy?

It seems like social media at places, in much, are driven by some people trying to make good - and they r fully passionate about what they do? Is this a new passionate expression and a new quality measure - or is it just a trick to get more followers?
We do not know yet.

If we now toss in Maslow's hierarchy of human needs into this reasoning http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow's_hierarchy_of_needs

And let's continue on the political perspective - Well maybe Quality and Passion should be the very most important political drives we should be offered by political parties instead of the idea on how to divide the resources? Quality and Passion might - instead of looking upon how to divide things - focus on how we better generate wealth - and why not figure out what wealth truly is?

Then you may add the work or job perspective upon this too... 
Most people that work reach the esteem level, see above, at many jobs. Some workers reach other levels as defined by Maslow too. But if you want workers to create wonders - well, should you not aim for the top and the level of Self-Actualization? Should not the full larger society also aim for this?

Maybe it works like this - you can not do one thing, and being told to do this, and then try to find passion in this - whatever you now are asked to do? - Well, maybe you can, but this way to find passion is perhaps not as an easy walk as compared to the other way around.
Where, you first; find your passion and then you take your own subject of passion and drive it into - a place where it becomes your job, your mission, your religion or your passion. Hmm?
Will this work? We do not know yet. But the idea is interesting from the political perspective and the work perspective - we think (at least for now).

But one thing is for sure - if you now are passionate about Floorball - hey, you could possibly be on the very most right track in your life. Yes, this reasoning works for anything (beyond Floorball too) that you are passionate about. It all only boils down to find your passion.

For all of you being passionate about Floorball - it could be a good idea to recognize this reasoning above and try to understand a bit of our own passion - beside of the game and the plastic ball itself!

#metafloorball = the higher levels of self-actualization! 

Thanks Maslow!

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
