Excellence From Women…And Men

“Whatever women do, they must do twice as well as men
to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult.”
– Charlotte Whitton

In the spirit of International Women’s Day (8th March),
I thought it would be appropriate to lead with something like this.

As a father to a young girl (Jane, aged 7 3/4), I look forward to
a world where everyone is rewarded equally for their
performance – regardless of gender.

Mind-Reading As A Skill

“I’m sorry you find communicating so difficult,
next time I’ll read your mind.”
– Anonymous

Maybe you sometimes feel like saying this to the people around you?

Or perhaps you’re guilty of it too?

“Ideas are cheap. I have more ideas now than I could ever write up. To my mind, it’s the execution that is all-important.” – George RR Martin (Author of A Song Of Ice And Fire on which the mega-hit TV series Game of Thrones is based) Most of us have ideas. Ideas that if done…

Maybe It’s Time To Stop Doubting Yourself

“The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world
the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”
Bertrand Russell

Too many people doubt themselves where they should not.
Then again, a few never doubt themselves and cause problems…

Which one are you? 🙂

Just because other people behave like they know what they’re doing
doesn’t mean they do! As someone said to me before, ‘The clock
that ticks loudest, doesn’t always tick best!’

Maybe you have doubt in an area of your career or life?
Or possible it’s only certain situations?
