Conquering King’s Park!

For the first time in almost four months, I managed a lap around King's Park today! I've been suffering from a knee injury for the past four months or so, possibly incurred after a round of football and probably made worse by me running through the pain days after that.

The Little that We Know

Last Thursday I attended a communications unit tutorial, and was really surprised (shocked, really) by the discussion that day. The students and facilitator (aka. the tutor) displayed such depth and scope in thought on that week's material (on digital and analogue modes of communication; largely philosophical stuff) that I could only observe is a state...

The Balloon

As a balloon             filled with helium                        floats                            upward toward                                         the sky,                          it gets larger                           and larger                  as the atmospheric pressure                                         drops                And the helium                       inside             e x p a n d s.

Beyond Oneself

Taken from the book Good to Great, by Jim Collins: David Maxwell, like Darwin Smith (ex-CEO Kimberly-Clark) and Colman Mockler (ex-CEO Gillette), exemplified a key trait of Level 5 leaders: ambition first and foremost for the company and concern for its success rather than for one's own riches and personal renown. Level 5 leaders want... Continue Reading →

Simplification is approaching a new era. After the first of November, I'll no longer be hosted by MediaTemple. As great as they've been these past couple of years, I've found that having your own domain and some web-space just doesn't justify paying [as much as I am paying] right now. I haven't really been able... Continue Reading →
