Is there a cure for the Summertime blues? An old pop song once claimed there was NOT. Ah, but these times they are a changing…. (Dylan I believe). Gas reached an all time high of $4.11 per gallon, national average. Depending on the press you read, we are seeing prices climb for building materials, consumer goods, loaves of bread, and even movie tickets (I understand Hancock kicked you know what at the box office this weekend). Is there no end in sight?
Well, as naive as it may sound…what can you do about it? Yes, we can get out to work for and vote for the party and the candidate(s) we think can influence things. And that is a good start. But what about making our own individual contributions by way of good old fashioned hard work. Yes, I mean get up each day, get to work on time, clock a full day’s work, then go home and do it all over again. I am writing this at 7:00 p.m. Sunday night. That is my personal time, at least on the clock I live by for the moment. What I mean is, I am not doing this on company time or while a client’s meter is running. I am burning my own time to lay this down. Tomorrow, when I resume my daily chores I will be focusing time and energy with my clients. No web surfing, no junk email day dreaming, etc. No texting. Wow, you must be reeaallllyyy old Dude. No Dude, not reeaalllly. Just practical. Think about it.
Have a great week. Do something new and wild this week.
