A Profound Look Back at the Week: February 15-21

It has been a week of all sorts of calamities in the latest proof yet that 2021 is not joking and will do its best to outperform 2020. I don’t know about you but I find that thought extremely energising and motivating. You never know how much time you’ve got and all that.

Customer Complaint Re Zombie Apocalypse

To whom it may concern

Dear [Insert-name-here],

I have been patient beyond measure but the time has come to vent my disappointment in how things are run on this planet with regard to humankind. Earlier this year — although the latest reports point to late 2019 — a novel coronavirus spread through the human population (and some other animals), no doubt with the purpose of containing the spread of said population.

Anyway, since I can’t waste time on social media, I’ll blogging about it. Cunning, right? So. Continue reading The Three-Day Trial

I met the Entrepreneur-to-be online, in a work project and I’d confidently say that he’s one of the sweetest and most persuasive people I know. That’s a dangerous combination, such people can make you do stuff you never thought you’d want to do and like it (especially since you get paid for it)! He’s a great motivator and a great optimist, and I can only wish him that he never loses either of these. Continue reading The Entrepreneur-to-be
