I don’t know

I had a dream about my ex girlfriend on Sunday. To be honest, I dream about her a lot. I miss her. Subsequently, I have thought about meeting someone and having a saucepan lid, cockney rhyming slang for kid. Yes, that’s right ladies, I am indeed single. Nevertheless, with that said when I think about what I have to go through in order to meet someone I simply can’t be arsed.

Therein lies the problem. While I understand the pursuit of any goal requires meticulous planning, qualifying the downside and the like, there’s a lot to be said for a degree naivety. Often, the mere thought of what we have to go through in order to attain something prevents us from taking sustained action, other than I’ll do it tomorrow.

I’ve got massive aspirations for my career, which are far removed from my present ability or skill. However, I’ve found once you’ve made a decision and take massive action, it’s inevitable you’ll find a solution. I haven’t got a clue about writing a financial forecast yet I knew I needed one. With this mind I was able to identify the relevant parties and acquire the necessary information in order to do so. I’ll be reviewing the first draft, this weekend and begin rehearsing my subsequent pitch.

I recall reading in Richard Branson’s Losing My Virginity, second best business autobiography behind Steve Jobs coincidently. Following a flight to New York, he thought he could offer a better airline service. He then called Boeing with a view of leasing a plane to start what we now know as Virgin Airlines.

Going forward I’m focusing on the enormity of what’s possible as opposed to the enormity of what’s required. Besides, as Walt Disney says, it’s kind of fun to do the impossible.

Sorry Amina, quotes are a staple feature of the blog. I guess it’s the Sociology graduate in me. Nevertheless, thanks again.
