🎶 I don’t want to cry. I don’t want to cry. Nothing in the world can take us back to where we used to be. Cause I’ve given you my heart and soul. (Given you my heart and soul). I must find a way of letting go but baby, I don’t wanna cry. 🎶

Did you know there are different types of perfectionism? Perfectionistic strivings which have to do with a personal drive to accomplish your goals, being motivated by positive outcomes and having very high standards. On the other hand, there is perfectionistic concerns, this is the negative version because you are afraid … afraid of making mistakes, afraid of failure and kinda obsessed with how you are viewed by others. You can Google it to make sure I got that right. I have two highly recommended movies for you:

  • Harold and Maude (1971)
  • The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane (1976 or 77)

They’re old but you gotta watch them! I loved Harold and Maude – I couldn’t remember the name but when I was telling Dee what the movie was about she knew it right away. FYI: Today I learned Dee is officially a Trekkie like her mama! I am reminded that I have a new person to blame for being out of touch with my emotions … Mr. Spock (he was my favourite character growing up. I admired him so much).

🎶 Cry if you need to but I can’t stay to hold you, it’s the wrong thing to do. 🎶

Cannibalize your own sales. Cannibalization occurs when a company introduces a new or improved product that decreases the sales of its existing products. But it is better to suffer a loss at one’s own hands than to have a competitor introduce a product that takes away those same sales.

When introducing an improved product, consider continuing to sell the old product. It usually can be sold at a considerably lower price, because its design, tooling and other development costs have been covered. This gives customers the option of buying the old product at a low price or the better one at a higher price. It is important however, that the new product clearly offers something the older product does not, to prevent confusion or resentment among customers.

Thing # 66 of 101 Things I Learned in Business School

Had to cancel my next appointment cause I have lots of terropy homework that I keep putting off. I will rebook for Aug or Sep. I’m hoping to find classic Chaplin movies but no luck so far; I feel the need to watch them again, since I am going for the same feel with these stop motion shorts. BTW there is such a thing as stock music and I know just where to get it.
