In Praise of True Friends

Most friends - aren't.

Hell, acquaintances are better than halfway friends. With acquaintances, at least everyone is real about where you're at.

A lot of our camp are people who were on their way very much up in the world before the financial crash hit, but we were all a little unstable and shaky since we don't have decades of experience yet.

Many of us got broken down. Some scraped by and kept moving. But all the young businessmen I know went down in the world.

And like, when you live a couple blocks off Newbury Street with nice art and nice furniture and some swords and a fireplace, it's really easy to make "friends."

Internal Scorecard #12: Once More Into The Breach

"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our English dead. In peace there's nothing so becomes a man As modest stillness and humility: But when the blast of war blows in our ears, Then imitate the action of the tiger"

-- Shakespeare, Henry V


I write these Internal Scorecards up, usually weekly, so that you can see the pragmatic applications of strategy, habits, operations, production, etc. The good and bad, the upsides and downs, and so on. I get a lot out of it too -- it gives me and external accountability mechanism, and good feedback.

This one covers 11 August to 17 August.
