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.




A Little Bird Told Me So

My friend Sparrow came over tonight. Sparrow always reminds me of what’s important and keeps an eye on the bigger picture. He sees things in a more practical way to me. Being an avid reader of my blog (‘your only reader’ he delights in telling me) I feel he is qualified to offer his pearls of wisdom. He noticed that my plan to only smoke on the weekends was not really working out. He suggested that I start my abstinence on a Friday because he said that my ‘weekends’ last too long. He tells me that the weekend constitutes Saturday and Sunday and not Thursday to Tuesday. This is good advice and maybe I will start my abstinence next Friday. I must just ask him at what point in the week in this plan I can smoke.
