There’s a shop near my office that has a sign out front which has changeable type and which has a new message posted every other week or so. I’m sure you know the type of sign to which I’m referring.
As I write this, I suppose this might be one of the original forms of ‘social media’ (and I suppose perhaps the proverbial ‘burning bush’ might fall into that camp as well but I’d suggest we don’t go there here.)
This week the sign reads, “Given enough thrust, pigs fly just fine.”
And isn’t that what we do on a daily basis? Working on responses where there’s not enough time. Having less than ideal and limited resources. Needing to do what others believe can’t be done. Hitting both a high standard for quality and a tight deadline. Getting those who would rather not be involved to not only perform but to produce quality work.
So, echoing the sign’s sentiment, here’s to those of us that figure out how to make pigs fly, and fly pretty damn well in most cases, on a daily basis.
*For those of our readers who are of the “politically correct persuasion (though I suspect most of those types have stopped reading this blog long ago) / those who are overly sensitive about anything to do with animals, please note the following: “No pigs, or any other animals, were harmed in the writing of this post. Further, Strategic Proposals does not suggest, promote nor condone the launching of pigs, or any other animals, or other such attempts to get those animals that are normally earth bound to take flight.
