Motivation is a trap

In conversations with people, I often here the following kinds of statements: I’m just not motivated to do [blah blah]. I know I need to do it. It’s the right thing to do but I don’t have the discipline. I’m not organised. Maybe as time catches up I’ll find theRead More

COVID laziness 2.0

In the pandemic period loads of services are reduced.  Most of the big food shops are open – and that’s fine – I’m supposed to say. FFS. When you get to public services, trust me it’s a right mess. I’m talking about health and social care services mostly. ‘Everything’ isRead More

Peterson’s illness and related matters

Oh well, as I do on a Sunday morning (2021-01-31) I read many of the broadsheets and some tabloids. There’s so much going on the world these days, it’s very difficult to decide what to focus on. You could spend your life reading everything on COVID-19 (Cornavirus or SARS-Cov-2). ButRead More

Why do I bother?

The following is my response to an article in the FT on 2020-12-26. Tough if you don’t have access. I felt compelled to respond, but I’m not sure why – as it’s none of my business to educate the masses of mainly stupid people! So I’ve been wondering, “Why doRead More

In the air tonight – song meaning

This is a song meaning review. Phil Collins said, “I wrote the lyrics spontaneously. I’m not quite sure what the song is about, but there’s a lot of anger, a lot of despair and a lot of frustration.” – the emotional content is obvious to most people. The issue andRead More

Placebo

Placebo is the name of a band. I’m not interested in the band, in this post. This is about the nature of the placebo (and related) effects. I’m not giving a definition on this occasion. Readers can jump on the net and find whatever definitions they like. I’m sharing someRead More

About spit!

Oh – I just had to post on this. Well, I was at a hotel last week. I had not been for several months due to COVID restrictions of several types. I had observed similar things at local supermarkets before getting to the hotel. So, this isn’t specific to hotels.Read More

The COVID push

To be clear at the outset, I do not like the COVID-19 virus. It has caused a large number of deaths, chronic disabilities and economic chaos.  Technology & work Right – once that’s out of the way, what I will say is that COVID has pushed all sorts ofRead More

Productivity

To simpletons productivity means ‘producing something‘. In this post I’m looking into what productivity may mean. Of course, as per usual anything can mean anything to anybody – as it’s a free country! I’m not about to debate with morons and play with words – nor am I here toRead More

COVID laziness

Laziness is a topic I’ve touched on many times before. The recent pandemic of COVID-19 has brought out some interesting features about laziness. I’ll make some sweeping generalisations about people (which means there are bound to be exceptions aplenty). The most startling of all is that when people are paidRead More
