He who moves not forward moves backward ~ Goethe
When arriving at the pearly gates hoping to qualify for a ticket into the promised land, would you rather be evaluated on your past behavior when you were young and reckless or your recent behavior as an adult who is making smarter lifetime decisions? Stay with me, for the big jump…

Inspired by an insightful WSJ article about the lending industry, Flying Blind Into a Credit Storm, by AnnaMaria Andriotis, I am reminded how the term business as usual should be shelved for a more appropriate term: business as divergent. Throw away the rule book, ‘cause what worked yesterday in business ain’t gonna work today.
To know what is right and not to do it is the worst cowardice.
In my lifetime, I have been called brash, bold, sassy, and mischievous, so I pay attention when a company, and a new one to boot, jumps out of the starting gate, bragging how they are going to transform the way a consumer’s credit worthiness is measured. Whoa, who does this RIBBIT think they are, challenging a status quo system that has been around since the 1860s when merchants shared lists of villagers who failed to pay their debts?
