If he is hiring, I am applying!!

The quote below from this article is my personal work philosophy.

As knowledge workers we need to advocate for space so we can find the signal in the sound.

As managers we need to protect our people’s space to think, concentrate and get things done.

There is a time to collaborate together; there is a time to be in monk mode. As Pablo Picasso is credited with saying, “Without great solitude, no serious work is possible.

I work best in a silent environment where I can sit with the information and process the information BUT within the broader context of the group so I can clarify/check understanding/ conclusions with the broader team. One is not better, neither is the other worse. They are just components of work that I like to engage in.

How do you like to work?

Something I believe in

I was reading this article about Turning Inspiration into Action and saw this quote that leapt out at me because it summarises a principle that I try to live my life along.

Helping others to accomplish their goals is an inherently self-less but social way of saying “I care about your goals”. Don’t make it transactional, nor about you. Just do it because you care, knowing networks are how work gets done now-a-days.

I believe give and it will come back to you, a full measure pressed down, shaken together and running over. And never to tire in giving and I always get back more than what I put in.
