While I'm a huge Simon Sinek fan, I don't know that I agree with his suggestion that we teach millennials to be patient. I don't know that we can teach patience. We can, however, teach kids to be more confident knowing that confident people are less anxious and, consequently, more likely to be patient. For it's the anxiety we experience that begs a quick result. Confidence and Success So how...  Read More

Over the past month and a half, I’ve been writing essays on poetry and quantum physics. Two are on my website, — “Matter is a Game Energy Plays” and “No Two Bodies Are Identical: The Crisis of Humanity.” The third, “Mathematics : Prediction :: Poetry : Contradiction,” is underway, and in the course of writing it, I have been able to articulate to my satisfaction...  Read More

I decided to think of *the* way to succeed in business, which I meditated on to be (and this doesn't necessarily require a great ability) thinking of 5 different coloured images, which if someone wanted to buy from me, I imagined I should give away 5 coloured images to each buyer. And separately from just blandly planning and writing songs, I decided to imagine collecting Area of Study Criteria...  Read More

Finding good customers is the essential to success for all businesses. It is especially important in early uses of the new FairPay business strategy that builds cooperative "customer first" relationships. Almost everyone who hears about FairPay sees its appeal -- but they also see that, because this relationship-centered strategy seems unconventional, it may not be not suitable for all customers...  Read More

The Trust Tax When I had the opportunity to read Stephen MR Covey’s brilliant book, The Speed of Trust, a couple of years ago one particular quote really stood out to me- Every organization earns a trust dividend or pays a trust tax I thought the book in total, discussing the basis and levels of trust and the elements involved should be required reading in every business school and...  Read More

About two weeks ago, I deactivated my page so as to plunge into some long-term work (the idea being to produce over the coming while several extended essays on poetry and quantum physics, a few of them underway already). I found I could keep a very brisk pace with no distractions from other Digitalia (a term I coined in an essay I published some years ago). I rarely bother with...  Read More

If you awake one day to find that the Oxford English Dictionary spelling of "unprecedented" has changed to "unpre s edented" will you be surprised? Would it be rather perverse? What if you find today the word "revisited" cannot be found in the Oxford English Dictionary (OED)? Have a look. It's simply not there. How perverse! The word revisited is in other dictionaries. But not in the...  Read More

As we enter a new year and we begin a new round of postings to the TLS Continuum blog series, I want to wish you and your families a very happy new year. Further if you are experiencing some humps in the life road, as I am, I hope they are short lived. During our end of the year respite we saw both a Facebook post and a media posting that was very disturbing to me on several planes. George...  Read More

The unending flashbacks, Rage; usually directed towards the self, Most days paralysed, Fearful of what lies within. The average day of a survivor. Sleep only brings embedded reminders to life, Even my subconscious taunts me, Brings to bear the reality. The one I cannot erase.  Read More

The New Roadmap I had the opportunity yesterday to read a couple of things that I found quite validating and I will freely admit to being shallow enough to enjoy seeing things that agree with my perspective. The first was an article about the Ritz Carlton’s secret recipe. It is pretty simple; your employees are the foundation of your brand. · Herbert’s rule number 1 - employees that are...  Read More

In some sublime sentences the Japanese novelist Yukio Mishima once likened writing to farming. Both required vigilance, daily grind and unceasing dedication, he wrote. Yet at the end of a long season of indefatigable labour one could do no more than hopefor the harvest of a plenteous crop. For Mishima, writing was a relentless whip that brought with it struggling nights, desperate hours and...  Read More

I am deactivating my account this week (01/08/17) and will not return to until I have completed several major projects underway, each of which in its turn will require undivided attention. In the event anyone needs to communicate with me in the interim, I plan to check once in a while. Thank you.  Read More

The MSM Turned Election2016 Into An Endless Series Of Imaginary Hobgoblins by Ralph Benko This election cycle has provided much demonizing of the major party candidates. Much anxiety stalked the land, or at least the mainstream media. Some of this anxiety fixated on fragility of the perceived legitimacy of the victor in the presidential election. Bosh. The Declaration of Independence...  Read More

The grey hiatus if not quite at an end has yielded, Light filters in through the cracks in the human armour. Time no longer more mocks with its insistence, Its background nagging as it passes. I am ageing as is everyone. Being grateful for the waking, The ability to breathe, Is not underrated, Though I battle with the self every day, In a Pierrot versus Harlequin pas de deux. The hard...  Read More

One of the challenges when modelling biological and other complex systems is that the resulting models often work fine until they are tested in a dataset other than that used for the modelling. This is the Catwalk Effect. While the models often fit really well and look quite stunning, they do not translate beyond the catwalk of the scientific journals. They may be sexy – they look great and...  Read More

To Trump: Heed The Lesson Jimmy Carter Never Learned Ralph Benko I recently observed how the 2016 race reflects American conditions in the late 1970s — also stagnant — and how the political elites are echoing President Jimmy Carter’s feckless reaction in his notorious July 15, 1979 address to the nation in which he said, in part: The threat is nearly invisible in ordinary ways. It is a...  Read More

Having a new year party? Perhaps you are going to one and like to hang about in the kitchen boring people with science facts about what is going on there? I must admit to the latter fault. On which note: Don't forget Henry's Law , The definitive answer is that your remaining cola will keep its fizz in those big plastic bottles if you squeeze out the air after pouring.

I am not a huge fan of New Year’s Resolutions. I find most of them have a shelf life of about thirty days max. I am however a pretty big fan of reflection. In honesty I found 2016 to be a disappointment. The year started with some promise, but then kind of petered out. I think one of my biggest disappointments was that it seems like this leadership thing still seems to elude us. We still use...  Read More
