Working effectively

I just love this video – for lots of reasons. First, it’s funny – second, it’s funny! Third, it has a good point about working with people and technology.

So I won’t say too much but let you watch it. What’s the message you think is behind the ad?

A stand off

The city of Toronto and the new Provincial government has been arguing over the size of the city council and the process to determine. It’s a strange standoff, with lots of political strife and past conflict in the equation. I could go into my own thoughts but I will spare you…and me. It is unfortunate that these kinds of conflicts create such distraction – and of course, they take up energy, money, and effort which could be spent upon much more important and productive matters.

I came across this cartoon and it struck me that so many conflicts end up being just this… and who really controls the situation. Of course, power always resides in the person who cares the least. In caring, we give the other person power over us. That’s unfortunate but it’s the truth. Consider a boy and girl dating – whoever wants to love the most will have the less stand of power.

The provincial government has won it’s way – so hopefully we can now move on.

Thursday smile

Phil and Amanda put a landline in the house so that Carlyle, now 5 years old, can call. She loves to answer the phone or pick it up and she’s a naturally chatty and joyful little girl. I was thinking about the kids who will likely never see a landline in the future or will not be aware of the rapid development of communication that has happened over the past 25 years.

I stumbled across this little ad and smiled at the relevance of its day.Screenshot_20180814-060451

And one more image just to let you smile…
