1MMD2014 [297 of 365] While we have their attention

…let’s give them something worth a mention!

The international spotlight has been on us for quite some time now.

Sure, it hasn’t always been for the best of reasons, but the mere fact that we’re seeing more foreign engagement than ever before is largely a positive in our favour. Now if only we had some smart people somewhere figuring out a way to best monetise this and be willing to share that information and spread the wealth around a bit.

I hear your cynical laughter and you may just be right.

What shall we do then? Well, best do it ourselves. I know it’s not as simple as that, but ingenuity and innovative ways of solving the issues which plague this nation, have not all dried up yet.

I dream of a time that all those willing, will be able to grasp that piece of coal and turn it into diamond.

Until such a time arrives, it is up to me and you to forge ahead and create ways and means that have never been dreamt of before…

We live the lie,

Just to see time fly by.

Fading dreams,

As we tear at the seams.

Betrayed by many,

Friends; have we any?

Cherish the moment,

Soon the time will come to own it…

1MMD2014 [295 of 365] When technology fails

…society rails!

A member of the #LeagueOfDo just asked me to submit a review on technology.

That’s done, but it got me thinking;

Just how dependent am I on technology to make my life easier?

At this critical stage, as founding member of LoveTheDoers and the movement being implemented across multiple spheres, I’d have to say, very. Still, and more importantly;

How does technology affect my overall disposition?

What with the mobile phone I’m using giving me continuous storage errors, the lag with my Notebook, Tablet failing to communicate with said Notebook and USB modem always conking out on me; yes ladies and gentlemen, David-John Bailey is NOT a “happy camper”.

Will we be able to live a more stress-free lifestyle sans tech?

I think I can and will eventually. Head for the mountains, build a cabin, log fire, live off the land, but until such time, this is the necessary evil I must endure.

There is HUGE potential for it to solve many of our deepest darkest fears, but everything in moderation…

1MMD2014 [294 of 365] We do what we must

…for there is very few we can trust!

Headed for that fitting this morning as planned and of course the station staff didn’t know where that road was, even though it was just down the bridge on the opposite side. Go figure.

Also, to be expected, I was kept waiting for more than an hour, even though I arrived at least 45 minutes early. Interestingly enough though, the factory building was issued with some form of notice that their electricity was more than 73k in arrears (don’t ask) and their power was summarily cut. Imagine the headache for the owner of the building.

Fitting done, was also able to squeeze some info out of them for time and location.

Apparently it will be a night shoot planned for next week. My 1st one, so it will feel like a sleepover. Not going in with the car. Just more fun that way.

I was in possession of a Cape Town Metro Plus Return ticket, so I figured I might as well pop in to Town. Again with the waiting, this time at CIPC (complete madness, don’t know how they maintain their sanity in there) and their ancient system of assisting with Company Registrations and the like. Some good news, got registered, just scanned the final documents a few minutes ago and will mail through to them, shortly after posting this… post.

Having to make some important decisions on who to enlist aid from, as I’ll only have 1 shot at it, but first thing first, this document MUST be drafted…

1MMD2014 [293 of 365] The secret to success

…lies in who you know best!

Feels like forever since I’ve been in Town, but this was the journey undertaken this morning once again.

I arrived a little early for the meeting with my Wesgro Connect Mentor and we decided to do coffee at the new Tortilla branch. Cool lil Mexican joint.

Again, I was fortified by the wealth of experience shared by Stuart and he even brought up one of my few favourite topics; Twitter. He told me about this book that told their Start-Up tale and at this stage I was quite keen to hunt it down, but he told me he’d be glad to lend it to me. Outstanding!

What made him share that particular story? Are we going through the same phase as those Pioneers of Industry with LoveTheDoers?

Made my way to Company Gardens after, where we found our Doers Bench off limits, as they were setting up for an event of some sort. We found an alternative.

I laid out the action plan which we shall be implementing soon. Stay tuned.

Headed back the way I came to rendezvous with Dave and we agreed on collaborating going forward. Always so genial he is. He was even keen to raise the capital we requested, at my behest and I merely have to email him a Proposal before he leaves for London in the next few days.

I’ll have to get started on that ASAP and I still owe Red Bull an email.

Oh, have a fitting tomorrow for a Charlize Theron movie called Last Face or something like that…

1MMD2014 [292 of 365] With the right Team

…one can accomplish almost any Dream!

No longer live I in the shadow of doubt,
Your help I can’t do without.

I have always chosen to go it alone,
And have heaped many sins for which to atone.

But now is the time for us to be bold,
In with the new out with the old.

A time to initiate exponential growth,
For us for you and I both.

The keys to the city are not yet ours,
The goal depends on our powers.

A detailed mandate will soon be revealed,
Until proven successful concealed.

For there are those who would see us fail,
To see this ship sink before setting sail.

Here’s a secret I am now telling,
Fear of failure pales in the face of my suffering.

When people undermine

Standard

1MMD2014 [291 of 365] Drop the hate

…before it’s too late!

Jet Li, a Chinese Warrior takes on the Japanese in Fist Of Legend. To what end though?

To avenge his fallen Master? To save his people living under an oppressive regime? Or is it simply for his own satisfaction, as he’s so good at breaking bones?

Sure violence begets violence, but before you start releasing those white doves, sometimes there are no other alternatives.

Did not plan it that way, but spent most of the day refining the LoveTheDoers Business Model, between episodes of DGray-Man. Of course I was taking it seriously, as it’s not just my future on the line here. They depend on me, it’s a lot of pressure and from here on out I will be tasked with making the really messy decisions, but such is the fate I must undertake.

I’m eager for the new week to begin, have resumed training again and feel a sense of urgency… More pressing concerns await…
