Time for change

This is the new year and a time when change occurs and no one worries why, it just happens. And it happens every time a new year comes around.

I need to change my blog and go in a direction that will produce new opportunities and further ideas for myself and others. Look for changes and if you have any ideas pass them along.

For a Million Bucks Could I Play ?

With the Olympics in full swing (I do love the Olympics) I had an idea to offer an opportunity to be part of the Olympics. How you may ask? Well there are about 100 countries that are invited to the Games that have only a few (like 5 or 6) competitors. One could offer a country a sum of money, (a lot) that money going towards helping in training some of their own citizens to be part of the Games. In turn one could become a citizen of that country and then train anywhere they want for the next 4 years, to be on that countries team. Yes this is commercializing the Games, but that happened when we let pros in the games like the NBA. Think of the fun it would be to go to London and race with the best in the world (not win by a long shot) and hang out to say, “Yes I was an Olympian”. Who knows one could also make some big bucks or even do a movie or TV show about it. Watch for my add “ Be part of the Olympics for only $19.99 plus training and other expenses, not to exceed one million dollars per person.

Face it

I had to publish this great photo I only wish it would have been my idea to take this picture. I have a poster from a Japanese advertisement that has just the face of a girl, the detail are so vivid you can almost touch her skin. Ideas like this are original each one, you may disagree with me but lets look at the idea of the parachute…. Leonardo Da Vinci had an idea for one later in the late 17th century someone made one that worked, later in the 20th century the par-a-foil worked much better each idea is original yet they all are parachutes. The same with the photograph it might look like some other work you may have seen; yet it is original. All ideas are original because even if they are copied they come from a new place (may a bad one), you; your history, your views, your frame, your thought etc.

Jaws 4?

“Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…” I have been working on a screenplay for a play on Jaws, called Chum. It would not be a comedy like all the spin-offs have been lately; it is a true horror movie. It would have all the fun little references to the Jaws movies, such as “That’s some bad hat. . .” and “We’ve got to get a bigger boat”, etc. The idea is to make a movie about sharks that would be scary but would help people understand about how important sharks are to sea life and the environment and not just man-eating killers that they are made out to be in Hollywood. The evil killer would be …. (You will have to see the movie) …

I remember when I was a young man I went into business with a friend to clean yards. (Evergreen Gardening) It was hard work because we really cleaned the yard up so it would be easy to be maintained. We took pride in our work and we knew that if we did a great job we could do more jobs and spend less time doing it. I work now in a manufacturing environment and I saw a team of production workers have their pride taken away from them just for the sake of production. They were complaining about the quality of the product and that they were not up to standard, yet they were told to just do the job and keep the line running. How does quality stack up to quantity? Does quality outweigh quantity in the long run or does quantity out rank quality?
Sometimes I wonder about the shops in China that produce tons of stuff. Do their employees have pride in what they do, or is it just about the numbers? The question is, as people in general couldn’t we all just take pride in our work and what we do? I know if the goal is to produce the cheapest thing there is, I would want to take pride in the fact that I could produce the cheapest thing. So how does this pride thing work? Is it pride in the quantity that can be produced, or is it in the quality of what is produced? Is it apples or oranges? Can’t it be both quality and quantity? I am sure it can be because people who have a stake in the product (their pride) will do the extra to always have the best, not just the most. The real goal should be to keep pride in the work place and our homes. Teach it to the next generation, as the great generation taught us.
