Zen and the Art of the Paperclip
Kevin Salwen on In the News

It's often said that the story of the American Dream is hard work and good luck. For Kyle MacDonald, it's about a truly wacky idea, some goodwill and the power of many, via the reach of the Internet. MacDonald started with nothing -- in this case, actually, a paper clip -- and decided to see how many times he could barter it to trade up to something more valuable.  His story, written here by the Associated Press, is remarkable.

I have been following this guy for a while now. He is from Montreal and is featured occasionally on CBC radio. It's a great story. The key, I think, is to be open to all opportunities. He could have given up at times and he could have decided he didn't want to live in Phoenix. Imagine the possibilties and see what's possible. That's what I read when I follow this! Living la vida fearless, Jan

Wow, I wonder what I could get if I started with a stapler!
