BE AWARE OF YOUR MOOD

As a general rule, our mood should reflect the reality of our life – in this sense there should be coherence.  But sometimes, there is lack of coherence, not to say, utter dissonance.  We probably all know people who, despite their obvious good fortune (even if only judged by those immediately around them), nevertheless are…

Climbing the Mountain

We can sometimes compare our life journey with climbing a mountain. It is often hard work as we toil upwards seeking the ‘sunlit uplands’. We may often be weighed down by a heavy burden and then, we do have opportunities to rest along the way and enjoy magnificent views. I think the most important thing,…

The Importance of having Plan B

Sometimes things don’t go as we planned – this has certainly been the case working with the structural engineers and architect helping to renovate my son’s new apartment! But, at these difficult moments we have to remember that we still have choices; we can say to ourselves “that’s it, my plan hasn’t worked” and stay…

Leader or Follower?

Some people shy away from authority and power – they simply don’t like making decisions. On the other hand, some people are frustrated if they don’t have the power and decision making authority. There is a lot wrapped up in this to do with one’s self-confidence but also it is having the emotional intelligence and…

More about the ‘Two Tribes’

Continuing with our two types:  some people prefer to do what they know, while others search for new things or new ways of doing them.  In other words “I do what I know” or “I know what I will do”.  The first one is limited to knowing one thing very well while the second one knows…

TO TRUST OR DISTRUST?

Continuing on my theme from yesterday (savers and earners), I believe there are those who instinctively trust and those who instinctively mistrust as their ‘default’ settings. That is, trusters and distrusters! I could imagine that the distrusters probably lead safer lives (as much as human lives can be safe)  but miss out on the opportunities. And, the…

TWO TYPES – WHICH ARE YOU?

I want to spend a few days dealing with a single theme about how we can broadly categorise ourselves as one of two types.  So, today’s theme: are you a saver or an earner?  If you need some additional funds to buy, say, a new watch, that you have wanted for a long time, do…

Resume Or CV?

Resume or CV? An interesting article from the BBC where I stand. “Ability to relate to your colleagues, clients and counterparts and the ability to adapt to a multicultural environment [are important] for a lot of jobs,” said Peter, who regularly works with clients across more than 30 European nationalities. Emphasise, for example, international experience…
