So far it’s been a hectic day – somewhat unusual for mid month trade. Part of me is overjoyed for the extra sales considering trades in the last 18 months have been pretty flat, with a constant slow downward trend. We haven’t got a clue what’s happening. After all the last 18 months have been very unpredictable, seems like no one knows for sure where the economy is heading. Our best educated guess is end of financial year rush where purchasing officers try to use up all their yearly budget to avoid any cut the following year.
Interestingly, part of me (believe it or not) complained for all the extra rush job. Somehow it took a while to get used to all the busyness, it took a while to get back into gear. Human is just an interesting being, they need warming up too. The longer they stay idle the longer it takes to warm up.
All these remind me of a phrase we used to say back in the days of selling computers, “We cannot complain when we’re busy”.
Maybe we should add another phrase, “Keep yourself busy to avoid system shutdown”.
