The joy of spring!

I’m rarely impressed by new terminology, however we have discovered that we are now no longer ‘clueless gardeners’ we are now ‘enthusiastic rewilders!‘ We now have purple stuff and pink stuff ….. we think they’re called flowers! Progress, eh?

Which is the . . . .?

I saw somebody answering a question on Quora this morning. (and yes I know, there are more rewarding things to do in life)

The author of this answer described herself as an author, psychologist, and warrior (!) and one of the thing she writes about is relationships.

The questions posed had to do with dealing with narcissists. The reply talked about her own failed relationship with a narcissist. Intriguingly she wrote: ‘He knew I was too sophisticated …..’

Now I find it difficult to put these facts together . . . . . .

What?

I am struggling with the deluge of emails, and cold calls I get these day, and what I find amazing is the number of people who contact me and speak in a language I do not understand – and I don’t mean Portuguese or Icelandic ….I mean ‘management speak’! Now I did a degree in Management Sciences in the 70’s, so I’ve done more than business jargon 101 but these days it has reached a level of obfuscation which baffles me! Today a guy wanted to link with me on Linkedin and his opening line was today: Given your industry, you’ll know how hard it can be to maintain a low-cost new business model to consistently drive quality inbound media production leads. I think he means it’s hard to find new business . . . but I wouldn’t swear to it.
