Failing on all cylinders

Failing on all cylinders

Every so often, it feels like the universe is conspiring against us.

No matter how vigorously we toil nothing goes our way.  “Done deals,” fall over at the eleventh hour. Hot prospects inexplicably vanish into vapour. People that owe us money, go on holidays. It seems the only people willing to speak to us are trying to sell us something.

Although this current is raging, its force will eventually cease and move swiftly in the opposing direction. Similarly, all markets spiral down, correct, and shoot to the sky yet again. Record sales periods often morph into slumps for no ostensible reason.  Our energy is up, flat, and then it’s down. Nothing stays the same for long. Every state is transient in nature.

Dr in the house

I found myself shamelessly gorging on a packet of chocolate-bullets that were frozen.  

It wasn’t long before I chipped a back tooth. Not happy! But, I probably had it coming. My troubled tooth began to slowly have its way with me—sending me deeper into neurosis with each tickling tongue pass. So, first thing Monday morning, I was on a mission to seek help.

I went straight to my trusted network for a referral. Surly someone knows a good dentist nearby? I was wrong. I could have posted the question on Facebook or Twitter, but I emphasise the word ‘trusted’ and most friends or followers are people I’ve never met at all.


What’s the big idea?

Thursday, January 13th, 2011


A lot of people are searching for the next big idea.

“This year is my year to hit the big time!” some of us expectantly announce as a New Year resolution, along with losing five kilos. Ironically, it’s the same resolution stated last year. Funny that.

When a phenomenon like facebook hits, the herd reacts and instinctively curves in formation in pursuit of success with fangs drawn and mouths salivating. Cottage industries sprout up like weeds and demands for a fair feed.
