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

Adults are actually children

Okay – so in this post I’m not going to go into the hard evidence (which I have), to support my perspective. Why? Because I’m not here to convince ‘everybody’ or ‘anybody’  of anything. My perspective is based on my real experience of people over the last few months inRead More

The nature of trust

If you who reads this thought you were gonna get a lecture on ‘trust’, you’re in the wrong place. Google is your friend – not me! I’ve done the Google thing and I’m not satisfied with what I read out there. So – I’m putting my own words to theRead More

From no longer a friend

I’ve lost count now, the number of posts I’ve made on the nature of ‘friends’ and ‘friendship’. I’ll hyperlink to some of them at the end. If you jump straight into the conversation below you’ll miss the context, which I explain in the next paragraph. The Story This is aRead 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

What can be learned from the stupid?

The pandemic period has assaulted me with stupidity – left, right, centre, top and down. It has been a very painful period. Some will say, “Well, you didn’t have to take in all that stupidity. You could have just looked elsewhere.” Before I get into that get into the interviewRead More

First theme T’pol – the Vulcan science officer on Enterprise is discovered to be suffering from a slow-burn dementia that eventually turns to madness,Read More

Pre-determinants – your ignorance is bliss.

For some time I’ve been occupied with things that pre-determine what we think or do. I’ve often referred to patterns and cultures as pre-determinative. Then I looked into attitudes. As I go on, I think more about this. The uneducated and dim will obviously baulk at all this. After all,Read More

The kick – Arkell v Pressdram

This is a story that involved a fair amount of my time. If you’re the sort of person who has a dog to bathe, go do that. I’m so not interested in whether you who may read this has a dog or not. Points first summary: I interfaced with anRead More
