“I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books they write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest in beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.”
― W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Veil
“Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in creating out of void but out of chaos.”
― Mary Shelley
Good morning Readers and welcome!
This morning I went to see a client who is doing building work at her home and it was absolute CHAOS! (Chaos to me is a swear word). I parked the car and thought “how do I get to the door?” All I saw were piles of rubble, sand and stones. I phoned my client and said: “Well I’m here but how do I get to you?” “Where’s the door?” She showed me a path around the stones and voila there I was at her office. What am I saying?
All is not always as it seems. Often we feel we are surrounded by chaos in our business and even in our personal lives. Murphy’s Law …. one minute you may not have much work and the next minute you are inundated by quite a few clients all wanting work done at the same time. Chaos! Have you ever found that invitations all arrive at the same time for the same weekend? Chaos! Or is it?
Some people thrive on chaos and if they are put into an ordered environment will create chaos just because that’s what they are comfortable with. People that enjoy a structured and orderly life feel extremely uncomfortable with “chaos” and will try to desperately reconnect with the order and structure they are used to.
I am not saying chaos is good or not so good. We need to use a chaotic circumstance to it’s full advantage, whether we like it or not, as an opportunity to move forward and push on towards our goal(s).
See you on line,
