Make a difference don’t make a noise

If you are gripped in the knowledge that the world is coming to an end and that scientists are not always right then start making a noise. The whole of the world seems to be clinging on to the idea that one group of people know a whole lot more than everyone else. This is unlikely to be any form of government anywhere in the world.
I would like to know why is that polititians make a whole lot more sense when they have left office than they ever did when they had the opportunity to make a difference. Try to ignore the cynic in me for a moment and take a look at this whole “iraqi trial by the press bollocks” that is going on at the moment. I would like every person out there to convince me that every thing they thought or did last week was for the common good of their fellow man! No? oh dear now you are to blame.
I would like you to remove your skin and roll around in the salt and lemon until we are all satisfied that you have suffered enough because we have suffered so much by your unthinking and selfish acts… What are they well – who knows because I sure as hell don’t!

I’ve been thinking

I have be with a few clients recently who have been looking for quick fixes.. something that is not possible in my world. If a company is desperately wanting to save money now then the quickest and by far the easiest way is to sack 50% of the staff. The impact won’t be felt until the end of the year but you will have achived immediate savings.
Nothing you do today will affect tomorrows sales or the next days or in fact this months it may have some influence in six weeks time but to be totally effective you need to plan much more in advance. The reason that you have no sales now is because you did nothing about it three months ago.
Sitting on your arse will not help. Get on with it decide what needs to be done and do it.
If you don’t someone else will and you will become superfluous.
Can’t help you today but can help you today for two months time.
