N is for Ninja

You see it all the time now: all those people out there who call themselves book / business / blogging ninjas or profess to teach you seven kick-ass ninja strategies for taking your business to the next level.

But what exactly is a ninja?

Apart from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (les Tortugues Ninja here in Catalonia) who were all the rage in the early 1990s when my sons were growing up, and a vague mental picture of Japanese warriors, I had no idea.

Live and learn.

According to Dictionary.com, a ninja is a member of a feudal Japanese society of mercenary agents, highly trained in martial arts and stealth, who were hired for covert purposes ranging from espionage to sabotage and assassination.

How awesome.

The Urban Dictionary is a lot more fun. Apparently, amongst many other feats, Ninjas don’t sweat; can change clothes in less than one second, split planks vertically with their nose, and can hide in incense smoke.

And they do NOT wear Spandex.
