THE BEST GOLD IS WHEN YOU HIT ROCK BOTTOM

ECONOMICS by KRISS on 18 february 2016

THE BEST GOLD IS WHEN YOU HIT ROCK BOTTOM This is an interesting thought I had no longer than yesterday after a very busy day attending our new art shop in Nerja.
Similarly to our previous shop but in a much busier street, people pass by, stop come in, look around and end up invariably leaving the shop with a nice comment such as « it’s a nice shop ».
But in terms of sale, the whole of Europe seems to be only preoccupied with things of necessity and since this is not our area of business, well, so far it’s been very quiet.

Recently I have been watching a show that has got me awake for a good 30 minutes at night before I doze off, and it’s called Gold Rush.
It follows the adventures of gold miners in the Klondike and Yukon, Alaska and I have been particularly touched by the relationship of one of the protagonist to his 90 something grandfather because I have been brought up by my grandfather too.

Anyways, I have noticed something along the episodes of the show, and that is that the best gold is always found near river bed, at rock bottom.
It’s always when the big excavators reach the rocks and cannot dig anymore that everyone seems to rejoice.
By then digging to the sides, the best gold is to be found.

And yesterday I wondered if the same was to be applied to other areas of life too !

Do we have to reach rock bottom or close to start getting pay dirt and get some reward for our efforts ? I’ll leave it at that, an interesting thought.
Photo taken from findinggold.org if anyone’s interested in tips and because we haven’t yet visited a gold mine through our travels.
