Just Seven Things
I have Google Alerts set-up for a number of different key words or phrases across the web. I track references to the company I work for, our competitors, our industry etc. I also track references to my consultancy (Scarlet Monday) and to Just Seven Things.
Now the company, Madgex, has very few other references made to it. It’s a construct of the initials of the founding shareholders and they slapped an ‘x’ on the end.
Scarlet Monday has more references as you would expect with the nouns Scarlet and Monday. But not that many.
The results for Just Seven Things however are really interesting. There’s a reason for me using this title for my blog. At the heart of my passion is a fascination for the relationship between the conscious and the unconscious. As in you can see in the ‘about’ this blog, ‘The Magical Number Seven’ is the hook that I hang my fascination from.
Now I’m pretty sure he didn’t have Google Alerts then, but if he’s using it now he’d see that every day there are ten to fifteen posts from across the web that reference 7 things. The seven things loved/ hated. The seven things to start/ stop. The seven things being looked forward to/ dreaded. They just go on and on.
Now it’s not persecuting me, and I think that there are logical reasons for it, but there’re probably about seven things that tell me that it’s a very special number…….
