I had planned to exercise today. I really had. But it’s been windy and cold and it’s supposed to snow tonight…yeah, I can be a wimp at times. I did have an excuse today in that I’ve been trying to work a business deal, so I’ve been on the phone all day (Chicago SELL, New York, BUY, etc). Never let a good crisis go to waste.

  1. Yes, never let a perfectly good crisis go to waste. After all, you can do things that you otherwise couldn't accomplish.

    Some credit this to Rahm Emanuel (D-Hell), but I do believe that Saul Alinsky can take credit here.

    And he wasn't wrong. Far from it.

  2. Alinsky was a genius. And I love the way that President Trump uses his rules against his acolytes. Hillary, who trod the same turf while Alinsky was preaching, didn't appreciate that The Donald read the same book.

    I hate to say that there is profit in crisis, and that positioning yourself as a middle man in these situations works, but it does. It's also useful to know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em. I learned a lot from Kenny Rogers (RIP).

  3. As the late car sales trainer Jackie Copper said, over and over, "Winners do what losers won't".

    Loser never let a crisis go to waste. Their excuse for doing nothing, IMO.

  4. Yeah – I had those same type of plans for after my 20 minute nap. The nap went well. Afterwards? Nothing. Not a damn thing got done. No hair cut and no exercise. For gosh sake – I'M STILL IN MY ROBE AT 6:19 PM. Arrrrrrrrrgh!

  5. I don't know if my efforts will amount to a hill of beans, but I'd be foolish not to try. Big up-side, no down side for trying.

  6. Somehow or other I ended up with blue collar work, so every day is exercise. Although curiously, all the plywood seems to be heavier than in the old days.

  7. I just know people and try and middle man deals these days. The only actual work that I do is cutting trees and splitting them on the property during good weather.

  8. Since Mr. A works from home it's almost impossible to stay looking gorgeous 100% of the time.

    On a similar note, my USP driver just a few minutes ago when I suggested that perhaps we coordinate his delivery for after I was actually out of my robe said, "Oh heck no. I wouldn't know you if you weren't in your jammies."
