Double Your Fun

Jane always said she wanted to get laid twice in one day, and had promised Johnny a taste of her sweet melons in return. Well, this must be their lucky day!

Iraq hostilities disrupt rebuilding projects

“Fluor Corp (NYSE:FLR – News), of Aliso Viejo, California, has been forced to move workers out of dangerous areas for up to 48 hours and work has slowed in some regions because supplies could not be delivered safely, said spokesman Jerry Holloway.
‘The impact has not been terribly significant. Many of our projects are in more stable areas of the country so we have not been impacted as others might be. We can catch up and for the most part work is on schedule,’ Holloway said.”

Seems to me, the workers might not be all that anxious to put in the OT required to make up for being behind schedule. But, that’s me…

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

“In order to meet the challenges of the next 10 to 20 years, [your company name goes here] needs to drive change in its execution methods or face losing its preeminent position in the industry. Technological, organization and work process improvements are needed to enable the type of change needed for [your company name]’s future success.”

Read: New corporate initiative in progress. Evaluate success 3-5 years from now.

5 years ago, this was referred to as a burning platform, inspirational call for action. Now, it seems to have the same impact as viewing the movie trailer for this summer’s must-see blockbuster – Police Academy 13.

Yawn.

Hosing Off The Driveway

Monday, April 12th, 2004

As I was finishing off the yardwork this weekend, I came to the realization that the entire process of maintaining and caring for the yard is capped off by a simple activity – hosing down the driveway. That simple, non-stressful, therapeutic process – controlling a stream of water to methodically move a line of dirt and debris down toward the gutter – brings a sincere sense of closure to the day’s events. You stand back, look back on your handiwork, and have a sense of satisfaction that you have completed a task. YOU finished the job, and are proud of the results.

Unfortunately, many people in corporate jobs – especially those involved with the endless parade of corporate initiatives – do not get that same pleasure. More often than not, the payback of devoting two or three years of focus and effort on the latest fad, becomes less exciting to the sponsors, and they lose interest. Some other book hits the market, or a conference highlights another “big thing”, and the butt-ostriches decide to try something different. Result: You end up never completing the job, and moving on to yet another “empty calorie” initiative.

But sometime, you may find yourself fortunate to break out of the cycle, and take an assignment that has real, tangible and meaningful deliverables. And when you do, you need to reflect on the accomplishment – you’ve just been able to hose off the corporate driveway.

Dodge Kahuna

DODGE KAHUNA CONCEPT – While this is only another one of them great concept cars from Dodge, you can bet your ass that they will sell like hotcakes in Southern California – if and when they become available. Even Sherry “loveoxo” thinks it looks pre-teee sweeeet. But just odd enough to keep the old folks away…
