I’m looking forward to the annual Fall Fair which is being held this weekend in my home town. Sights, sounds and smells are captured on film and in mind’s eye as aficionados cherish the memories until Next Time.
One of my favourite midway games is Whack a Mole – you gotta be quick…and random attempts to hit that little game boy on the noggin aren’t at all encouraging until you step back, watch the rhythm of the “popping up” and then – Whammo!
Not unlike the allocation of daily tasks into Urgent, Very Important, Important, and Other. When you desk's piled with paper, the phone’s ringing wildly and you don’t quite know where to start, use the Whack a Mole principle…Step back, recognize a pattern, identify what sequence events will “pop up” and then win yourself a prize for accuracy, response time and ability.
The frenzied pace of business and daily living doesn’t easily afford those precious moments that can make things go smoothly or present a bumpy road. Visualize yourself with a rubber mallet and concentrate on which mole you’ll whack next….and by the way, if you visit a midway and the game is there – try it…with your insightful analyses you might take home a stuffed toy!
