I See A Bad Moon A Risen


What is it with a Full Moon anyway?

Wednesday is a full moon.

Tuesday had five prospect calls to start with and only two of the calls showed up for their appointment. 99% of the time prospects show up for their calls. Is fear magnified during a full moon?

On the other hand, we have received a promising communication about a speaking opportunity for a large Advocis Chapter.

I’m investing Wednesday in packing for a week on the road and finishing up the Power Point for the 2 ½ workshop that I am doing for The Cumis Group in Gatineau, QU on Saturday.

According to Wikipedia …

Full Moons are traditionally associated with temporal insomnia, insanity (hence the terms lunacy and lunatic) and various magical phenomena such as lycanthropy. Psychologists, however, have found that there is no strong evidence for effects on human behaviour around the time of a full moon [5]. They find that studies are generally not consistent, with some showing a positive effect and others showing a negative effect. In one instance, the December 23, 2000 issue of the British Medical Journal published two studies on dog bite admission to hospitals in England and Australia. The study of the Bradford Royal Infirmary found that dog bites were twice as common during a full moon, whereas the study conducted by the public hospitals in Australia found that they were less likely. Psychologists point out that there is a difference between correlation and causation. The mere fact that two events happen at the same time doesn’t mean that there is a cause and effect relationship between the two.
