I read a piece recently that says that by the year 2026 there will be mass job losses in the UK due to "Automation and Robotics".

Here is a man who gave us many brilliant inventions, including the incandescent electric light bulb about which he said (paraphrased) that he didn't fail each time it failed but that he ruled out ten thousand ways that it didn't work.Given Edison's eminence it might be of some value to listen to some of the things he said during his productive lifetime.....how about this:-"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."Or maybe this one:

Hey good people, some of you may have noticed that I've been a little quiet lately to say the least........to be honest I got into some lazy habits for which I have severely berated myself.Needless to say, this has had a negative effect on my rankings here. Not that that's the be all end end all, far from it, but the trend can tend to creep into your online activities as a whole. Do you recognise this in yourself?
