Oh For Fox Sake…

IMG_4991Ok… admittedly I’m frequently an irascible soul… or so some would claim…

On the whole and left alone in my own little world, I’m generally laid back to the point of horizontal… though every so often someone else tries to merge their reality into mine and then I can become vertical with a vengeance…

Now there is something that I’ve noticed over the last few years… and it comes into view way too often for my liking…

From where I’m standing there seems to be an over abundance of project optimism… There also seems to be some kind of assumption or maybe misguided rumour going around that if you are doing anything remotely holistic for a living then you must have had half of your brain cells scooped out…

Maybe I’m reading it wrong…

I don’t know…

What I do know is that I hear way too much chatter about ‘potential’ and nowhere near enough information about the details or facts and figures… always castles in the air presented and never the solid foundations… and when you ask questions or try to examine the ‘information’ being presented then that’s where it gets interesting…

Suddenly you’re under fire for being negative or problematic or you get some love and light bastard saying things like… oh… I know you’re in a bad place right now… maybe you should go and meditate, cleanse your aura and balance your chakras so you can go trust and go with the flow… find your faith again… you need to reverse your conditioned negative thinking patterns…

Mmmm… really…

See… it is my experience that going with the flow with people who refuse details only leads to being sold down the river…

Asking questions and wanting to see the figures does not equate to a deficit in positivity…

It is not negativity!

It is numeracy!

And if you want to talk business then… how can I put this nicely?

Love and ledgers…
