We had booked into the outdoor activity centre ‘Redridge’ at the end of the 1990s, a place Bettina and I were to visit annually for a number of years where we rock climbed, abseiled, trekked, canoed and even walked up a mountain together.
Welcome to the latest leadership pack. This edition includes an inspiring blog post from my colleague Meike and a series of my favourite Ted talks.
Over the years we have nudged many professionals working with Bettina out of their comfort zones by persuading them to take risks and push Bettina’s knowledge and skills forward, on the basis that until we do this we will not know what she is capable of achieving.
One of the many lessons Bettina has taught me, that I strive to include in my life, is that no matter what has gone on in her world the day before, when she wakes up to Joyce’s knock on her bedroom door she is ready ‘to go again’
The winter edition of the Dosh newsletter is packed full of useful information about managing money.
With thanks to all those who have liked read our ‘Being Bettina’s Dad’ series on the blog and twitter.
During my participation in athletics in the 1980/90s, I modelled my levels of concentration on other athletes such as Sally Gunnell, Seb Coe and Steve Cram, closely watching them prior to races as they physically and mentally prepared for their next winning performance and taking the best bits to build my own model of concentration and focus.
I think living your life well is a personal matter; it can mean so many different things to so many people. Although I do think you should reflect on what it means as often as possible. I believe that life is a precious gift. So what does living your life well mean to me?
Life is short and as my wife, Joyce, often reminds me, you are a long time at work, so it is important that you are happy doing what you do. So before it is too late for you to do the work you were always meant to do, here is what to do (if you are not already doing it).
As I write and put together this month’s leadership pack, it is a Sunday afternoon. What I found most enjoyable today is watching the presentations from Ted.com I have chosen especially for you although I had originally chosen five!
