Some weeks you feel that you move the game forward, others you stand still, and sometimes you go backwards. I was running a two speed life last week – working very productively on project work – but I had a melt down in my Outlook, lost my calendar, contacts and tasks – as well as double up on emails… and yes of course I have back ups – but all these things take time. It was the weirdest thing looking at my iPhone and not knowing who all the contacts were because only phone numbers appeared… even worse a calendar that had no entries. I found that I had a physical reaction to not having this detail at hand. My stomach knotted, I was worried that I was going to let someone down – I’m not saying it got as bad as ‘I couldn’t sleep.’ – But I did tell the GM IT – that I was ‘having kittens’, what ever that means.

Alas a bug got me at the end of the week – pretty funny that I was supposed to be recording my book as an audio file and I had a very deep husky voice – some how I think the producer is going to reject the file. I also was unable to do the speaking engagement on Sunday – but lucky we had a backup plan. I really appreciate my colleague James stepping in for me.

  • Reflecting on this weeks planning session... people of different backgrounds, different ages, nationalities all united by a shared senses of #purpose to do something meaningful and valuable for others. #leadership #quote
  • Each year I look at what it is I want to achieve. And how I want to contribute. I also build new messages and insights for my keynotes. One topic I’m considering is Influence... how to impact others. This will incorporate personal leadership, but it is far more shifting viewpoints and aligning people.  This is what I’m working on at the moment.  What are you planning for 2018?
