Ask any reformed con artist and they'll tell you it doesn't take too much to fool busy, distracted people. Don a black T-shirt on which you have had 'security' printed and you can wander places perhaps you shouldn't. Carry a clip-board and you can ask some intrusive questions. Of course in reality there is no genuine substance behind the T-shirt nor the clip-board. Nor the smart suit, the accent or the charm.
Big Business is full of Long Con Props: the PPT slide-deck, the PDF of company values and those self-generating busy, busy conference calls. Don't be conned. Stay alert. It's more than your wallet which is at risk.
Who'd play you in the movie of your life? Crazy question. You've got that role. You are starring you in the movie of your life. No, the actor is not a problem. But you might want to have a word with the script writer.
Saturdays are for clearing sleep debt, last mowing of the lawn for the autumn, catching up on laundry, playing with the kids, talking to the kids, updating the playlists, cooking, reading, loving and just being. Saturdays offer time for a consolidated list of dreams, wishes and goals; a time to write a real letter and time for 500 words of the novel. Saturdays are meant for being outside, for kicking a ball, for climbing a tree, for reading a real map to navigate the terrain. They are perfect days for the long cook, the long conversation and the long nap.
