Anonymous on Charge TtiBut irresistible forces dont always provide helpful pushes. Have you ever had your plans delayed or put on Rob G on Charge Ttihold indefinitely by a change in your organizations operating environment?Perhaps fashion suddenly changed, and no one wanted any longer the kinds of products or services youprovide. Perhaps laws were changed to make the regulation of what you were planning to do difficult toimplement. Or perhaps the raw material costs suddenly became very much less expensive for an old-fashioned version of what you make, and customers flocked to the suddenly cheaper alternative. Maybewarm weather meant that winter coats werent needed in December.Imagine your organization as being a jetliner traveling across the United States. Because the jet stream flowsgenerally from west to east, this powerful and highly changeable wind, this irresistible force, will have a largeimpact on your journey.The average nonstop coast-to-coast flight takes about five and a half hours. If you travel from east to west, thejet stream will add more than two hours to the time it takes to travel from west to east. The difference resultsfrom having the jet stream as either a head wind, retarding your progress, or as a tailwind, helping youforward.Of course, if you are traveling from south to north, the jet stream will also delay your journey somewhat bypushing you off course and forcing you to fight off some of its effects as a crosswind.Heres another example of how irresistible forces can be harnessed for your benefit. Have you ever watched asmall, slim person use judo to defend against attacks from larger, more powerful people? The judo user willactually employ the strength and inertial direction of the attacker to make self-defense easier.For instance, if the attacker throws a punch, the judo defender can grab the wrist of the attackers extendedarm as it speeds forward and pull the attacker to the ground by tripping her or him at the same time. Ofcourse, without the judo, the results could be quite different.
This points out the need for appropriate development of your skills. Properly harnessed, irresistible forces canbe used successfully in such a defensive way. However, the most exciting potential is their use in a positiveway to create irresistible growth for your enterprise.Irresistible forces can be like head winds, tailwinds, or crosswinds.

I LOVE this outdoor living room set I saw..it will go underneith a patio. Where I live it doesn’t rain much BUT my dogs pee on everything. Is it possible that I take off the cusions and, maybe, spray paint it with a clear gloss to protect the ‘weatherproof’ wicker?
Ronda B Reply March 7, 2012 at 8:57 pm They make a spray to keep dogs away from stuff. Go to you local pet store and ask them what it is. You can also spray things with garlic oil or vinegar to keep dogs away. Not sure how long the garlic would smell in your situation but the vinegar smell goes away in a couple days but still continues to work. We got a puppy for xmas and he decided to destroy our carpet. I sprayed the carpet with vinegar and he decided he didn’t like it anymore.

For some reason an assortment of bees such aswasps and yellow jackets are attracted to it. There is no nest under the table or anything. What makes them soinfatuated with the furniture, and how should I get rid of them? I’ve tried spraying wasp and hornet spray at them butthey still come back… Outdoorteakandmore Reply March 2, 2012 at 6:28 pm
I had a similar problem but we had a nest under the a chair. Once that was removed we didn’t have any problems. Double check all the furniture for a hive, it might be tucked in a corner under a chair or really just really small. The only other thing I can think of is that they are attracted to the oil that was used to finish the furniture. You may want to try rinsing the furniture off and lightly scrub or wipe it down to see if that helps.

We live in Oklahoma and I love the warm weather. Could I use a futon..or wouldit rust? If I brought the mattress in at the evenings…I feel bad that my family cant enjoy sitting outside, but at themoment we just don’t have extra money for a patio set…i have even looked on craigslist and everyone that is sellingtheirs wants 350 and up for used stuff…any ideas at all would be helpful and please don’t be rude Paul in San Diego Reply February 29, 2012 at 10:49 am Whenever I go to Rite Aid or pretty much any drug store around here, they have those stackable resin chairs out front for like $10 each. They also have resin patio tables for about $30 and umbrellas for about $30. They also have powder coated metal frame with glass top end tables for about $20 each. If you want chaise lounges, people
are selling those aluminum-framed with plastic webbing vintage ones on eBay for about $25 each. For a larger area of shade, you can also find deals on about a 10 foot square easy-up for less than $50. Regarding a futon, you could probably put one outside. But, with the humidity in Oklahoma, it may rust fairly quickly. Especially if you left it out in a rain or hailstorm. When you buy a futon mattress, however, it usually comes sealed in a plastic bag. I would leave this on the mattress for increased moistrure protection.

ang07 Reply March 1, 2012 at 10:24 amHow to do I protect outdoor patio furniture w/cushions?We just bought a patio set which includes thick chair cushions. They say they have been treated to be water repellant.Do we need to move them every time it rains? What else should I do to protect the padding? Thanks. Anonymous Reply March 10, 2012 at 12:30 pm The padding is also designed to be fast drying, but if it is going to rain Friday night or Saturday morning and you know you’re going to use it Saturday afternoon, it might not dry fast enough for you. Being water repellent and fast drying are certainly a help, but they still tend to get a bit dirty out there. If I’m not going to be using them during the work week, I take them in and put them back on the weekend. If you notice after a few months that they are not as water repellent as they were, you can buy a spray can of the repellent to renew. jae Reply March 7, 2012 at 7:32 pmcanopy for outdoor patio set?where can i find a canopy to put over my outdoor patio set..thanks dawnb Reply March 9, 2012 at 11:03 pm I think you mean an umbrella and those are available anywhere patio furniture is sold. A canopy is something that would be attached to your home and unroll over the patio. There are companies that offer these and they would have to be professionally installed.
