But Can You Win?
"Every time I say "No".
Had a quick gander at Sitemeter. I normally have a look now and then to see who, and how many of you, are stopping by for a read. I noticed a link from Ian's gaff ( PJC Journal ) from last December. I recall being a little despondent at the time, and the above clip, posted by a blogging stalwart who I admire immensely, called Katabasis, gave me heart. I just watched the clip again and it had the same effect. So I thought I would post the clip here.
Will it work for you? Will it inspire you to have a pop at the "establishment"? Will it get you to finally realise that saying "NO!" is the key to it all?
I hope so.
I really do.
"No", is the most powerful word we have in the English language, hell, in any language.
For the love of all that is holy, learn to use it.
It is your salvation. It will stop the Borg cold. It will stop the jobsworths. It will even stop the cops.
And the satisfaction?
WARNING: Saying "No" is addictive. Only those with balls of pure titanium should attempt to say "No" in the face of mindless bureaucrats.
Get to it!
