Get focused and miss the obvious

Al being off on holiday means we will be light on posts over the next 2 weeks – I just wanted to share a link today that illustrates a point very well, over the last few years I have been focused, over the last few months I have changed my direction a bit more to generic domains and continued to focus very well on the matter at hand but it’s pretty easy to miss the obvious when you get wrapped up in what you are doing, I hope that in a few years time I don’t look back and wonder how the hell I missed the obvious.

This link I am about to give you is from a UK Government advert : Do The Test
Please head over there and take 5 minutes of your day to do the test and then let me know how you got on 🙂

  1. A friend sent me this link last week its very clever! I didnt even notice the guy in the costume after it rewound the first time i also tried to count the black and white teams passes as i didnt have the sound on my laptop….DOH!

  2. The same scenario could be applied to 1000 things that we pass each day but never notice. Good ad.

  3. I completely missed it!

  4. Totally missed it here too. though my daughter spotted it first time, so 10 year olds are much more observant.

  5. Amazing…but it doesn’t look good for cyclists does it?

  6. Missed it too. Makes you think.

  7. That is just hilarious – and no I didn’t see it. And here I was so proud of myself for getting 13 right!

  8. One of the reasons my shiny racing bike is gathering cobwebs in the shed as i hated the near misses. Id rather be fat than dead 🙂

  9. I’m a cyclist… Think I’ll forget the gorrilla outfit next time and put the fake 38dd boobs on instead!!

    S 🙂

  10. I think I’ll leave the car at home today. 🙂 Great laugh, thanks.
