I pulled up a chair … George had suggested that networking just wasn’t his style, he was adverse to ‘breaking the ice’ with those he hadn’t met before and being ‘nice’ just because … and the whole ‘first-date’ scenario left him less than warm … “Getting out of the comfort zone is just not forContinue reading “It’s just not for you!”

Routine and the glittering prize …
Living by the coast I spend much of my spare time along the shore-line. The combination of energy by the sea, oxygen in abundance, the space, solitude (apart from the dog of course,) are a great combination for inspiration. I like to scour the shoreline for sea-washed glass. Just fragments of colour glistening amongst theContinue reading “Routine and the glittering prize …”
Be helpful. It seems to me we worry a lot about how people see us… “But, I’m no expert,” I’ve heard people say. In most cases, people want a solution more than they want to worry about who you are or are not. It’s true of course, I might want my surgeon and my airlineContinue reading “Be helpful”

Hey, go-to person!
So the spider tends the web, the fisherman works his net. Both are busy, setting out their wares understanding that, sooner or later they are going to find what they are looking for … Bingo! Reward for all the attentiveness and persistence required to be successful. So what is he on? I hear you askContinue reading “Hey, go-to person!”
The positive, and where to find it.
Positive: a desirable or constructive quality or attribute. “take your weaknesses and translate them into positives” It’s easy to be influenced by all that mainstream media brings to the doorstep, good and bad (sad), all of this conspires to influence our own thinking and in some instances, our well-being.
