Have you ever wondered why people do the things they do? Tell me, why do some people;

  1. phone me to ask if I have read their email? – just do one or the other, not both, you are duplicating workload.
  2. leave a phone message to ask me to call back when they could just leave a better message? – this is just lazy and adding unnecessarily to workload
  3. read their presentation directly from notes and give you the handout? – just give me the handout. If you do a presentation then add life to the written page.
  4. pay for a gym membership to do step training, yet do not walk up escalators? – one is free, the other extortionate
  5. attend a concert, make a poor recording on their phone and then buy a professional recording to watch? – ignore the poor recording and engage in the concert

There are many, many more but these were the first few that came to mind. What would you add to the list?

Times are changing

Yesterday, the humble cassette tape turned 50. It was such a user friendly way to share music, record off radio and in the late 70’s to early 80’s enabled portability of our own music collections. These days they are used rarely but their value was immense. The cassette opened new horizons, opened up fresh possibilities and have is many hour of joy. Largely unknown to a new generation but the once powerful left a foundation for the current age. Happy birthday!
