I think one of the ways to overcome a writer's block is to make a trip to a place you have never been before like an exotic market place, a commercial street or even a university campus. The key is to be at a place which has a crowd of people and lots of activity going on. I bet you will come across many ideas you will be prompted to write on.
I had this block a couple of years ago. I would get so many ideas but when it came to putting them down in black & white , nothing would happen. My wife used to force to to write something. One fine day i decided that come what may i am going to write a book and with determination I wrote a book of 100 pages in just about a month - of course the subject was very trivial - I wrote a book on recipies for single men - students, men working away from their homes. The book became instant success with mother, sisters and wives of all those men staying away from home especially in foreign countries.
My wife was however disappointed as she wanted me to write something technical
Thanks for the post. I would love to read about how companies that largely affect the electronics Industry feel about increasing their workforce and what they perceive the global economy to be. We've seen that most are hedging their bets and hoarding cash but at what cost? How long will they continue with that practice or do they even know. How much influence do they have on our political environment (if any) and the subsequent turn around of the economy.
Instead of running scared, someone needs to take the charge in leading the economy back to health. Its a tall order, I know...Your thoughts??

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
