I was reading one of my favorite “popular” (non-technical) magazines the other day. In particular, the 27 November 2017 issue of Business Week.
Today is the day that we are supposed to recognize the abundance afforded us. Of course, many of us have still not recovered from the Great Recession (especially in rural America and the Midwest). But, being the optimistic people we are, we all seem to be bound and determined to celebrate Thanksgiving. Unfortunately (this is my opinion), many of us are also bound and determined to wait on line for an interminable duration just to score that one sale item.
So, it’s true. Even the Republicans know it. (But, to a large degree, they wish it weren’t true… because it removes one of their political daggers.) The American economy is recovering nicely- not where we want it, but better than it’s been in nearly a decade.
I was a bad boy the other day. I got caught up in the drama of one of my client’s issues.
Don’t get me wrong, we all have drama. We all have issues. And, to be honest, I thrive on solving the drama of others. (I generally suck at dealing with the drama of my own life- unless it is life threatening- and, then, my training kicks in and I am in overdrive.) But, in this case, my client was trying to develop an explanation of the craziness that obtained in 2013, because the narrative will be crucial for our moving ahead with plans for the future.
