Published on September 29, 2022 Written by

I’ve asked quite a number of leaders whether there is such a thing as work life balance. Almost everyone says no without hesitation.

This leads to being… View Article

111 Reframing Failure #1298 

Published on February 14, 2024 Written by

Is it really failure when things don’t work? Often, we look at the lack of results we intended as a failure, when perhaps it’s something more.   I am a learner; I often refer to myself as a lifelong learner.
