Late last night I got a note from an account person: "Where did you find that statistic."
I did not find that statistic, dear account person. I created it.
I said to myself, what would illustrate fear and disruption. I answered stock market drops.
Then I googled a list of largest declines.
I went through each one and marked the dates.
Then I saw a pattern.
That's where I "found" the statistic.
I don't know what is wrong with people. I'm often stopped and admired. "You know so many things; how do you do it?"
Well, here's how I do it.
I don't waste my time on stupid sports that eat up your free time. I don't follow Lady Gaga or Kim Kardashian's ass.
I read. I observe. I think.
In the case of interesting facts it is digging.
Not finding. There isn't a magic google button.
Work is work.
There are no shortcuts.
