It was a hard email for me to write. Over the past several months I watched a friend of mine become addicted. He was a mild casual “user” before – but as time went on, his time became totally consumed by his drug of choice, and he became one of the masses addicted to one of the most damaging drugs in America today. And he needed help – and I needed a break.
“My buddy Bobby became addicted to C-Cubed. Complaining, Crises and Complacency.”
Look around, stop and listen. How many conversations can you eavesdrop in in a week – before you notice that “C-Cubed” – Complaining, Crises and Complacency are RAMPANT and totally out of control on almost every street corner, restaurant booth and cell phone call you can find.
Take it a step further, and notice how many “C-Cubed” conversations you personally are participating in. And it’s not just talking that counts, LISTENING to ANY repeat complainer, crises junkie or complacent bullshit story counts – because listening lets it inside your mind AND gives them someone to tell how bad it is to.
Want to help me change your world for the better. Stop. Stop talking and stop listening when ANY CONVERSATION becomes nothing more than a bitch session, another crazy crises call or an excuse to stay or become complacent.
Stop now – and start to make a difference. You will help me end C-Cubed Addiction and…

I just realized, by reading about the triple C´s, that this is the reason me and my work companies end the day feeling so tired and drained. Our micromanagering, control freak boss is addicted to the three C´s. But how to stop this???
The first step in stopping the Triple C’s is noticing them.
Noticing them gives a little distance, and a little time to not just get sucked into them.
Let me know if that makes sense. The next step is noticing “the feeling” that shows up, and lettng that go too.
Play with that, and let us know what you notice.
Such AWESOME advice! If you don’t let the negative in, you won’t be affected! Rock on . . .
As someone who manages people, both students and employees, I will say this is spot on.
If, in the course of people management, I keep a good, positive feeling of health and well-being flowing, then everything that needs to be done just does itself.
If on the other hand, someone gets into that “C Cubed” dynamic and starts dragging the vibe down, I cannot tolerate it. Because if we lose the feeling of health and well-being and nurturing positive environment, then everyone is fighting uphill just to do a half-assed job.
I apply this to my own life as much as possible as well. Just don’t go there… keep a good outlook, don’t worry too much, and if you’re getting burnt out do whatever will make you feel better. Then the “work” really does just take care of itself.
