Last week a friend said something interesting. "If you sit in a barbershop long enough, sooner or later you'll get a haircut." It came up again this week when I was doing an interview with Amy Spencer who was working on an article for an online magazine called "The Nest" http://www.thenest.com/. She asked how people could save money on their computer. My first response was to turn it off. I was only partially kidding.
I know a lot of people who spend their time surfing ebay or amazon. And if you surf ebay long enough sooner or later you'll be the winning bidder. The same thing with Amazon or any other shopping site. (for whatever it's worth, it's also true of shopping channels on TV or infomercials or hanging around the mall - sooner or later you'll pick up the phone and spend some money.)
So I guess my question is how much time do you spend in the barbershop? If you hang out there regularly don't be surprised if sooner or later you get a haircut!
