    We didn't expect to grow?

    You've just got to love this quote from Alec Erwin in a report by Mweb on why Eskom has a power crisis:

    "The underestimation of economic growth and the consequential underinvestment in infrastructure in the first decade of governance has required us to adjust and accelerate the implementation of Eskom's build plan," said the minister.

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Remember the Ark was built by Amateurs and the Titanic was built by professionals.
    Business isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
