It’s the easy one that hurts

You’ve heard it all before, a general enquiry from an unknown person or someone who turns up to your OFI. Two days later you’ve listed it and three days later you’ve sold it.

Yes it does happen, but not enough to build a career. In fact, a number of people even start to think this is the norm. As my mate Peter Camphin once told me: even a blind squirrel finds the occasional nut. I think this saying aptly applies to this case.

  1. Couldn’t have said it better Mr McLeod, I think you actually taught me this, however I do like Mr Camphin’s take on it.

  2. A blind squirrel would have very well-developed sense of smell, listening etc to compensate for no vision in order to survive.

    The point, develop all your skills to their full potential so you can grab the nut- anywhere, any time. I would rather work with a blind squirrel who is consistent & focused than an inconsistent, opportunistic, “now driven” squirrel!.
