The Difference Between Good And Great | The people who are great at what they do are passionate about it. They love what they do and that’s why they do it.
A Key Talent | I make an effort to listen when other people are talking. Often a conversation is one way traffic with each party waiting politely (or not) for the other to finish talking simply so that they can continue with their own point of view. I find if you really listen and make an effort to understand what the other person is saying, then this almost always leads greater cooperation and a willingness to succeed by all the parties involved. This applies internally to the organization and externally with clients and suppliers.
Principles I Live By | Keep it ethical and honest, a win-win is always a good deal.
Critical Skills I Develop | Perseverance and a good attitude.
Lessons I Have Learnt | There is always a silver lining, look for the opportunity in every situation.
Dealing With Doubt | This happens regularly. I break big problems into small pieces and deal with them one at a time. One or two small successes build positive momentum.
Performing At My Peak | A healthy body a healthy mind. I enjoy the outdoors and exercise regularly to keep fit.
Resources I Use To Stay Inspired | I read a lot of books, preferably non-fiction, but occasionally a good story book too.
The Meaning Of Life | It’s a privilege to be here, live life to the full and enjoy it.
The Best Advice I’ve Received | It doesn’t help to worry. Share problems (if/when necessary), break them down into smaller issues and deal with them one by one.
I Am Inspired By | Barack Obama
