The Going Gets TOUGH

Billions have been lost by the 'know it all' big bosses of politics, finance, and industry. Those billions won't bother you now as much as that tiny bit of the pie that suddenly went down the drain and that was all that you had to lose!

Getting into the inviting rut of worrying about what you could possibly have done different is now not going to help. What's gone is probably irretrievably gone. If anything does eventually get salvaged that will be far too late to solve today's problems. So, rather than decry the current state of affairs, we'd all better get practical and start doing what needs to be done.

My first suggestion is: GET BASIC!

The core areas of our economies will survive even the very worst economic disaster and will also be the first to pick up after everything bottoms out.

My second suggestion is THINK FREE!
As one of my heroes remarked "I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail." (A. Maslow)

So, get lateral, jump out of that box, roundcan the mental straitjacket, and start to use those noodles to good effect.

and Finally: Be GENEROUS.
