After renting and watching scary Ils (Them) and uneasy Blood Diamond I decided to choose something more relaxing and better suited for my wife’s taste. So, Ridley Scott’s film A Good Year was perfect for getting into that sunny summer mood. (Raining outside, again). It was also interesting to see how versatile Ridley Scott is; light romantic comedy is a long step from Blade Runner and Alien. Of course, there are over 25 years between those sci-fi films and A Good Year.

In the film, the old snippet of wisdom was mentioned a couple of times. It roughly goes like this:

“What’s the most important thing in comedy?”

“Timing.”

And… 

“What’s the most important thing in buying and selling stocks?”

“Timing.”

Let’s expand that further. With perfect timing, can one achieve everything – be a master in all tasks? Do these work:

“What’s the most important thing in ice hockey?”

“Timing.”

“What’s the most important thing in dancing?”

“Timing.”

“What’s the most important thing in playing a piano?”

“Timing.”

“What’s the most important thing in playing poker?”

“Timing.” 

“What’s the most important thing in writing code?”

“Timing.”

“What’s the most important thing in marketing?”

“Timing.”

“What’s the most important thing in scientific research?”

“Timing.”

And finally the grand question: 

“What’s the most important thing in making love?”

“Timing.”

Et cetera. Some of the above do sound reasonable.
