I like shortcuts. I’m always looking for the quickest way to get somewhere. “If it’s worth getting there it’s worth getting there fast” is my mantra for driving my car.
But all shortcuts aren’t created equal. There are wise shortcuts and lazy shortcuts.
The wise shortcut gets you there with the minimal time and effort, with no compromise in quality. It’s the standing up from your desk 35 times in a day that is better for you than 15 minutes of cardio workout approach to life.
The lazy shortcut gets your there with minimal time and effort, but the quality is compromised. It’s the missing the last set approach to working out.
One approach is smart, one is lazy; don’t mix the two up.
I run a course called Board of Directors. Business owners join me for two days every three months and we go deep on their businesses, and their own personal psychology.
Recently we got some HR people in to help us improve our professional development program at MedRecruit.
People often talk about the impact they want to have… In the future.
After a crisis, most people aim to get back to the state they were in before the crisis.
Recently the World Medical Association ratified a change to the Declaration of Geneva, the modern-day Hippocratic Oath, the value-set of doctors worldwide, to include the health and wellbeing of doctors.
I was recently speaking to a group of corporates.
And I had to smile.
I speak to a lot of groups of people AND Purpose is something that I’m big on, and it invariably leads to someone asking the question, “I don’t know what I want to do. What should I do?”
“When is it giving up, and when is it changing direction?” is a question I get asked a lot.
Some people like beer.
Some people like wine.
Recently I was fortunate to attend a good friend of mine’s wedding in Bali. He’s a partner at a well-known law firm in Singapore, and many of the attendees were merchant bankers, venture capitalists and other people in the finance space.
