January 30, 12 Cousin Maureen sent us a great website with 7 different self-guided hikes in Scotland… each one has numerous photos and they offer a variety of services, B & B’s, maps, etc. I think you will agree it is a wonderful website. I likely spent an hour looking at different hikes on that Hillwalk Scotland site… including one that goes right past St. Andrews golf course. How wonderful it that? http://www.hillwalk-scotland.com/ I signed up for their newsletter.
January 31, 2012 I have been looking at some quotes about change. It seems like I need to make a few changes… not the least, of which is trading offices with Shirley.
“Change before you have to.” –Jack Welsh, past CEO of G.E.
“Change means that what was before wasn’t perfect. People want things to be better." –Esther Dyson
“Change is such hard work.” -Billy Crystal
Today I made the final decision to switch offices with Shirley. She has tried to figure out how to rearrange my room so I would not have my back to the door. The problem is that there are two doors in my office… one goes outside and looks into Shirley’s garden. The other enters off the living room. Shirley is the best… and if she can’t figure it out it cannot be done. (Or is it that Shirley just wants my office? hummm)
It is not going to be a simple move… we each have a lot of stuff. There is no satellite TV in her office… so that will have to be fixed. But Feng Shui or not, it is never good interior design to work at your desk with you’re your back to a door. My trading coach says that if you have your back to the door all your money will go out the door. Yikes! So the sooner I get moved the better. Do you think I can blame my trading losses on sitting at a computer with my back to the door? Is this going to be another lesson learned the hard way?
