Quest for Sense

I'm just trying to find sense and sensibility in what often seems to be a crazy world.
Let's help each other in a Quest for Sense.

  1. What are you waiting for?

    If you want great things to come into your life, do something towards it today.
    And each day.

  2. If you want to get effective, get busy.

    Ever heard the saying "if you want to get the job done, give it to a busy person"?

    You'd think the right answer would be to give it to a person who has time to get the job done, but that's exactly what that old adage is warning against. And I've just come to realise, it is shockingly true.

    For most of my life I've been a very busy person - to the point of wondering if I'm not taking on too much. But I've always got through the load, and with pretty good results ...

  6. Ambition - a story

    In 2001 I was a one man business - and incredibly happy with it.

    I had one service product to deliver.
    I had a portfolio of very satisfied, faithful clients producing a very steady supply of orders.
    The "office" was a room in the house.
