WEST WITTERING — They say the credit crunch feels worse in Britain than elsewhere. And maybe that’s true. But the old adage “a recession is when your neighbour loses his job and a depression is when you lose your job” hasn’t happened yet either.
However, the big issues in life remain unchanged, regardless of what the future holds. How do you find work that you enjoy? How do you seek and provide comfort for your friends and family? How do you make the world a better place?
I like the story of the French check-out girl who started a blog and how now written a best-selling book. Her entire focus is on observing people’s behaviour in daily drudgery. She tells shocking stories that are funny because they are true.
We are often less than the people we think we are. We don’t do things that make sense. We run our businesses in ways that are mysterious.
Next year will be different.
