I recently bought a new blender, a Tribest Personal Blender. It's main feature is that it does the blending in the same cup I serve in. It's awesome. HAha.
It’s interesting how a simple product (such as a blender) can bring me so much value. In this case, more value than its moneys worth; a mixed berries soymilk smoothie to kick-off or end my day is priceless. This brings me again to my belief that it’s those little things in life that make it better.
I think the growth of life is more than just the process of accretion; iteration of consumption over attainment is often overlooked. Maybe some people will disagree with this notion, but I think life would be so linear if it weren't also about consistently branching towards the "greener pastures".

Recently, I've been thinking about the importance of the initial establishment of relationships (including those with multiple actors). I believe most new and short-term relationships are generally established at the very beginnng, during what I would call the 'free-for-all' period. This is the period where key conditions are being set, and also what we generally refer to as 'first impressions' when we meet somebody for the first time. To make my point, I would go as far as saying that I believe the conditions of the relationship(s) establish at a rate of exponential decay. The very beginning is vital.
The 'free-for-all' period is like a shot in the dark. It's only throughout time then the actors true characters are revealed to the other(s). Its the addition of the time variable that allows the evolution of a relationship; generally so slow it doesn't play much of a role in most relationships. And of course, when I refer to "relationships", I am talking about all of them and not just those that are comparatively more significant to us.
Similarly, I think the chemistry of a team or the culture of a company is mainly determined at the very beginning. It's the initial hiring process and workflow that establishes how everything will run for next good couple years or so. These conditions, although not point and fact, are obvious to its actors.
In the case where upper management is replaced with a new one, I see that analogous to the replacement of actors in a team. Especially when a team is represented by a hierarchy of authority, this allows for a 'sub-free-for-all' period within the team. The more changes to the actors (and especially those with more authority), the more changes to team chemistry. Hence, turning a company around.

Enough bull shit. Good morning everybody.
