Chinese Elephant Kicks Heroin Addiction

Friday, September 26th, 2008

The world’s biggest drug addict has finally kicked the habit.

Big Brother, an Asian elephant hooked on heroin after drug traffickers fed him smack-laced bananas, is finally heading home after three years in rehab, Reuters quoted the Xinhua news agency as saying.

The bull, or male, was captured in the wild in 2005 in southwestern China by the bad guys, who controlled him with drugs.

Cops busted the gang a few months later, but then noticed the big beast was suffering from opiate withdrawal.

He was sent to a wildlife facility on the southern island of Hainan, where his treatment involved a year of methadone injections at five times the human dosage.

Big Brother, also known as Xiguang, was due to arrive at an animal park in Kunming, capital of Yunnan province, on Saturday.,2933,416684,00.html

Hey selling pro – what nasty habit do you have that is undermining your performance on the job?

These habits could be elephant big or tic tiny, but they all impact the money you make and take home.

One quick example; you get your day started 20 minutes late, let’s say 3 times a week.

That’s 52 hours a year – like taking a week vacation (without the fun & sun).

If you’re earning $100,000 a year you’re offering two grand to the Sleep Gods or Starbucks Demons or whoever causes you to slow up to show up.

So there you have it, we’ve discussed the elephant in the room.

What will you do about it? And when?
