I keep the dream in my pocket...

...never let it fade away.

Today was a most annoying day. I am getting increasingly frustrated by the antics of a few people around me at work. No doubt whatsoever I must frustrate people around me at work too. So this is nothing new or abnormal in the grand scheme of things is it?

So after reading the book, Good To Great, my desire to work alongside like minded persons has increased. I just don't know how to go about looking for this collection of hard working, tenacious, fun loving, decent, honest, non-egotistical persons.

There is an argument that such persons would never be winners, and that winners must be of a certain mindset - egotistical, proud, determined, ruthless etc. But I do not believe this one bit. Those particular traits in no way exclusively define a winner or great team in my humble opinion. No, I do believe that the persons I seek exist, and if I am lucky and they are lucky enough to congregate together in the first place, I will meet this congregation and we shall get on like a wonderful dream.

    Know what I think? I think the whole lot of us should form a Collective and do loads of, like, great stuff for a living.

    Don't know what, though. I leave the technicalities to other people. :)

    Agreed. First on board would be Captain Damo. To see him have to stop his ranting by virtue of too much work and stress getting him convinced all he does is rant, is a shock.

    As for what to do - we just need to find our Hedgehog Concept (see my review of the book here for what that means).
