Bell Curve

Sounding like the proverbial broken record, I cried on Sparrow’s shoulder (not literally) about Alan’s rate abuse. Pulling me up by my collar (not literally), he shouted (again, not literally), ‘What result do you expect to get when you keep doing things in the same way and when that way isn’t working for you?’ … good question … but, but, but … ‘But I refreshed my Linked in profile and I’ve made contacts but everyone still HATES me!’ The revised summary now read:-

“I am the product of a misspent youth, my dad insisted, ‘Rach, if you can learn to use a word processor, you will always have work’ and that has proved to be true, what great advice.”

‘So what’s wrong with that!? I don’t want to write all this boring stuff about qualifications I never took, achievements I’ve never had! I’m a fucking typist, what the fuck!? Give me your fucking audio recordings and I’ll type them for you!?’ and I suppose Sparrow’s point was proven.

He kindly drew me a bell curve and explained that by not going along with the rules and the protocol, I was only going to appeal at best to the very bottom few percent and the very top few percent (maybe he was being kind) and that I needed to hit the big buldge in the middle where all the boring people are. So today I amended my Linked In profile and have made it boring and now I will wait and see if by doing things differently I can get a different result.
