No time to save time

For this post the use of IT (information technology) includes software and hardware. Key areas of resistance: Human nature factors: fear, laziness, resistance to change. Organisational: lack of resources to provide, lack of awareness, inability to train, too busy – and all human nature factors. I can ‘unpack’ some ofRead More

The top 5%

Did I say or imply that I was in the top 5% of people? I did NOT! This post is about my observations of what’s happening in the human race. I refer broadly to the top 5% of performers. Who am I talking about exactly? Well I cannot say becauseRead More

Why I have no friends

I have written about ‘friends’ before and what friendships mean to me. Since that time I’ve been thinking about this. More recently I attended a conference somewhere in the UK – at which I met people who are friendly. So that got me thinking some more. Just to be clearRead More

Money – Know More, Make More, Give More.

Am I talking about your dreams at night? I am not! This is about people’s aspirations; the things they wish for in their quieter moments – and the things they do not reveal even to their closest (so-called) friends. Just to be clear reading of this blog post and viewingRead More

Knock on the door

Well, I’m making breakfast this morning – around 10:00 AM – and I hear the doorbell ring. No – I didn’t think that the ‘authorities’ had come for me, finally. So I step into my storm porch and see a man and a child. He’s smartly dressed in suit andRead More

Now I get it.

For quite some time I’ve been looking at the rules of logic in relation to how people reason on various things. Repeatedly I came up with a gap between the rules of logic and the application of reasoning. In retrospect I discover that I unknowingly made an assumption, that ifRead More

Talking about time

I realised before that ‘time’ is perhaps the most important thing in life. It’s this simple: there is a time between birth and death. I declare that anybody who argues otherwise makes themselves out to be a fool. I’m not interested in how one (or ‘you’) measures time or aboutRead More
