Default Anything EXCITING happening yet? YAAWN!

I see a few brief attempts at starting something that MIGHT lead to an interesting, multiple response, various facets explored type of posts like the old forum had but nothing happens.

Wonder what's causing this? Is it this grey doom and gloom appearance that's perhaps dulling our senses and putting us to sleep at the keyboard? Are we all depressed at losing what was friendly and familiar? Where has all the LIFE gone in this forum? Gosh, I sure miss it and hope it returns soon!

Don't misunderstand me, this basic forum style is okay but it is kind of a snooze job whereas the other one was lively and stimulating. Ah, bet that's it! The other one had shades of yellow...a known stimulant to the intellect and general brain function whereas blues and greys are calming and sleep-inducing. Could it be, perhaps? Hmmm...

Default All forums have "slow" times...

...even the "old forum"! (I think, with hindsight, we tend to forget about those "slow times"...)

I must admit, my own interests right now are dominated with learning how to create a "system" - or "systemizing" a business...

This is an extremely important topic when growing a business (and as I've mentioned earlier, very little is written about it!). However, unfortunately, it's usually not as "exciting" to talk about this as all the other topics...!

It's very hard to write an exciting story about "systemizing" a business, in contrast to talking about that impossible-to-get sale, or turning a failing product into a success!

(Though James Anthony has done pretty well with sharing some of his stories regarding this!)

I'll try to write some more "exciting" stuff...

Actually, I know of something EXCITING about to happen! ;0

However, I'm not a liberty to discuss it at this time.

On the otherhand, I'm pleased to announce that after Tuesday, I should see a drastic reduction in the phone calls I get from Bob Corker and Harold Ford!

Default Hey, Bob..

If all goes well, I'll "break the news" around the first of December or so. If it doesn't, you will not be required to be on peedles & nins any longer.

Still got a few "loose cannons.." Ooops, ends, to tie up.

I would be very interested in learning more about "systemizing" a business. It may not be pretty or exciting to read about, but learning more about it is necessary.

Why not start an interesting thread topic yourself? Be the solution.

I tried, Stevie, with this one but no one has commented or picked up on the color theme yet.

Back atcha'...what do you have to toss out as a life preserver we can all scramble for?

Dien, I am aware of the ebb and flow of forums. I was just hoping to start something a bit different, that's all.

How's this...

Here are two websites...

http://www.freerepublic.com

and...

http://www.democraticunderground.com

Both contain fruit-loops with no sense of logic. Some make valid points, sometimes. Some make Stoopid points. Non-Sequiturs, if you will.

And...

Wait...

HAY! I know why the forum is slow...

According to the liberals...

It's Bush's Fault!

Okay. Now your turn to Turn Up The heat. Nothing like some good old Controvery to get things going. Just ask 50 Cents http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/50_Cent (read the entry to see how Controversy has made him over $22 million - people have paid this Entertainer for CDs and Mixtapes that I wouldn't listen to if given for Free).

It never ceases to amaze me the extremes that people will go to to waste time while purporting to be 'busy'. Unbelievable sometimes.

As for the wikipedia post on 50 cent...I think it's a shame that we can't find something, or someone, more positive to hold out to our young people to emulate. It seems sometimes that the worse something is, the more it is idolized in this country.

Saw the beginning of it waaay back some 40 years ago in North Hollywood-Studio City area. Sam Goldwyn and I used to chat about things Hollywood related and how they will eventually influence our world. He was right on the money, I must say. The rise of the Gay movement, the rap scene, the porn industry,and violent movie scenarios...we saw it all happening even back then.

All the home and family hearth themes and actors were just a smokescreen for the real agenda behind the scenes. In the name of 'real life' we suddenly found all the street back alley garbage invading our living rooms, our children's lives (and destroying their childhood innocence at the same time) until now our world is so polluted with garbage you can't turn a corner without coming face to face with it. Sad, indeed.

How's that for controversy, Michael?
