I was watching a reality tv programme earlier today called 'Oil Riggers'. It's based on three competing teams digging for oil in Texas.
Each team have their goals to reach and were all dogged with major problems along the way, mainly being mechanical and personnel problems. It was stated that each day's problems or delays cost about $45K per day and one of the oil rigs is new, costing $8million.
While continuing watching, I was very surprised when one of the riggers (from the team that had the most problems), realised that the flag of Texas was hanging upside down on the pole.
He got his team mate to pull up alongside the flag pole.
He stood on the fork on the fork lift truck, his mate raised the fork, and he changed the flag around so that it flew the right way up.
Apparently, oil riggers and working on the oil rigs is a very superstitious place, and after sorting that out, the rig began to run much more smoothly.
I was astonished!
It got me thinking of what you fellow IM'ers do, as a habit, to bring good luck or karma into your life that benefits you and/or your business?
