How to get f@#&*cked while being nice

How to get f@#&*cked while being nice

I need to write this one for learning purposes.
About six months ago I came in contact with a father from our kids's swimming lessons. He was looking very pale and stressed and I asked him what was wrong.
He told me that he went bankrupt and that there was no one who was willing to help him getting his new business going.

I would save you the details but to keep a long story short, I reached out to help by coaching and supporting him, his new business and his family. I even gave him my last money so that he could buy food for his family and fill up the gasoline for his car.

I got to work, at his office and soon I found out that he is a short term thinker. Nothing wrong with that when you have someone next to you who levels the field a bit.
But he did not have me at that time, so I went into all those contracts and with a lot of positivity and a bit of luck we changed those for the better.

Time is a funny thing…..

"Time is tricky. You have whole months, even years, when nothing changes a speck, when you don't go anywhere or do anything or think one new thought. And then you can get hit with a day or an hour, or half a second, when so much happens it's almost like you are born all over again into some brand-new person you for damn sure never expected to meet."

What a brainstorm session with students brought me this week.



What a brainstorm session with students brought me this week.

For those who not know me, I am a people minded person with a lot of passion for what I do.
What I do? Support entrepreneurs in reaching their goals and dreams in a very pragmatic way. Sometimes by being a sound board to them and sometimes by re-structure their companies (and employees)
In my spare time I like to be in front of the classroom to give different courses to students that are following a Bachelor course in Business Administration.

The last two weeks I was giving the module Knowledge Management in Utrrecht and one of the instruments for KM is brainstorming.
We had a brainstorm session with 8 students and the subject was a rather personal (involvement) one regarding a friend of mine in need for cash to finance his employees for two months to get started up with business again.

1970 a good year, do you remember?


 
In 1970, the world was a different place.
There was no Google yet. Or Yahoo. Or Stumbleupon, for that matter.
In 1970, the year of your birth, the top selling movie was Love Story. People buying the popcorn in the cinema lobby had glazing eyes when looking at the poster.



Remember, that was before there were DVDs. Heck, even before there was VHS. People were indeed watching movies in the cinema, and not downloading them online. Imagine the packed seats, the laughter, the excitement, the novelty. And mostly all of that without 3D computer effects.
