What’s the OPPOSITE of the ‘Shoebutton Complex’? Could it be the frustration we feel when someone we know presses ahead with a business plan, a repair, a restoration, a leaflet print run, a DIY project or whatever … when they KNOW full well we have experience down that alleyway, yet they never ask for our help, advice or guidance?
I would love to hear what you think about this – Comments below please

Many believe that, as their world view is set & their belief systems are in place, it would take a well pondered, well articulated persuasively reasoned argument to make them even consider another point of view.
This isn’t always the case. It’s entirely possible to change your stance 180 degrees in a few seconds …
People are so capricious they will not wait, so if your webpage / site is slow to load, there are plenty of places to find the load speed (or lack of it) but where do you go to discover WHY it’s slow, & WHAT is slowing the overall load time?

I got some great feedback after writing about the four blind men & the elephant. The story proved you can experience something first hand & STILL be wrong not right, due to limited or skewed perspectives
I want to give you my second story about that same lesson about perspective. While I can’t claim to have come up with the blind men & the elephant story, this next one is 100% my own creation!
Why is it that otherwise intelligent, professional people seem to lose their minds when they go to a gym?
In their daily work I’m sure they are responsible accountable people, but for some strange reason, as soon as they take their tie off (does anyone still wear a tie? I like ties) & slip on those shorts, they forget basic logic & their IQ drops through the floor
There is a bill afoot in the US (so it effects everyone) to “combat” online piracy. I want you to spend a few moments in the company of Mike Mozart getting a few startling facts about this hypocrisy, and leave me a comment below please
An American businessman was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village …
… when a small boat with just one fisherman docked with his catch of several large yellow fin tuna. The America complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them. The Mexican replied only a little while
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Almost 40 years ago, in 1971, at the dawn of the Information age, the social scientist Herbert Simon wrote:
“In an information-rich world, the wealth of information means a dearth of something else: a scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes. What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of it’s recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention”
100% spot on for what we see around us everyday, non?
Go round the room and ask that question. Maybe someone says ‘banking’ (although they don’t own a bank) and another says ‘Design Consultancy’. Next pipes up ‘Carpet Fitter’ and the next maybe ‘Therapist’ or ‘Software Developer’
Understand this: there is a HUGE difference between being a Plumber, & being in the Plumbing business. Think of the difference between being a singer, and being in the ‘singing business’. See, Simon Cowell can’t sing a note, yet he makes millions from the ‘singing business’
