When I decided to join Team Shelter, I never could have imagined that the plight of those at the lower tier of the rental market would be so highlighted by the EPIC tragedy that happened at Grenfell Tower. It is an absolute failure that a building who’s residence were under the duty of care of the Borough Council was so disgustingly unsafe.
How many more rental apartments are unsafe, unhygienic, and not fit for purpose?
I am dedicating my charity ride to all those effected by unsafe housing conditions, and to the Shelter charity who campaign and assist those in need of assistance whether they are facing the plight of:
– Unsafe buildings
– Unhygienic conditions
– Short rental contracts
– Poor maintenance
Help me to help those in need by pledging what ever you can. Let’s raise another £300 or more in the next month for Team Shelter.
Enough is enough, things must change in the rental market.
In an experiment, two monkeys who performed the same task were rewarded unequally. One was rewarded with a slice of cucumber and the other was given a grape.
The results are predictable, but the video I link to below is an amazing visual representation of our response to a world that is not equal.
The Positive Pragmatist philosophy that I use as my framework for the world does not believe the world is equal. It is a basic requirement of the game to understand that rule number 1 is: the world is not fair.
Kicking and screaming accomplishes pretty much nothing in the long-term. Constant growth, action, and humility compounds over time.
The path to success, however, will be littered by the kicking, screaming, and protesting of those that feel they have a raw deal.
Looking at the world from a different perspective is one of the great abilities that differentiates us from a Capuchin Monkey. We can choose to see that a piece of cucumber is a perfectly acceptable piece of food. Eating too many grapes will make you fat and unhealthy. Having too much of a good thing is not guaranteed to make you happy.
