Don’t Jinx It

So today I broke one of my rules.  We have an offer on the table that our candidate will probably accept tomorrow and I put it on the spreadsheet as filled.  I’ve been burned by doing that enough times in the past that I know it should never be done.  You never count your chickens before they hatch.  You never take the risk of jinxing it. 

Business is pretty good right now by the numbers that count……positions filled, revenues, profits.  Job flow is still just okay, which tells me that business conditions out there are not great.  So I don’t dare take the risk of assuming that we are in the clear until more than enough evidence is in.  Reality?  Things have improved and in recruiting as it stands, good business is being done.  I hope it continues to build.  I hope our candidate accepts the offer tomorrow.
