Desperate Times Call For Creative, Sensible Measures

It has been said, “desperate times call for desperate measures.” These days, this is said a lot. Myself I have thought about it quite a bit as well. However the more I think of the phrase, the more I take a different approach to it, as follows:

Desperate times call for creative, sensible measures.

Creative? Sensible? Mike, the economy sucks! Who are you to take such a soft approach to it?

Well, I am someone who needs to. After putting a lot of thought into it, the second “desperate” is usually driven by anger, fear or anything that gets your blood boiling. Go ahead, blurt out what you will do, then give it a rest. There is a high likelihood what you said in frustration makes sense, and there is a chance it doesn’t. As you think more of it, creative juices are now replacing the adrenaline that was previously flowing through your veins, and some great options and alternatives can come from it.

That’s my story and I am sticking with it. Until those ideas don’t work, then I get frustrated and start all over again.
