On building a meaningful career http://deadfi.sh/1CkjUFY 
If I'm honest I get rather impatient with over-simplistic platitudes suggesting that the secret to having a meaningful career is simply to follow your dream. On the surface, and for some of us, this no doubt makes complete sense. If...

The vote for Post of the Month is now OPEN http://deadfi.sh/1DILU8D 
Bit of a longer list in this month's vote including a video talk nominated by Dan which is a break from the norm but deserves it's place in our shortlist. So this month's vote is between: The Dunning-Kruger Peak of...

On blogging... http://deadfi.sh/1yRs7nm
As ever Adam, who is just so good at blogging, is on the money with his view on it too. The fact that Andrew Sullivan has stopped writing a blog has led some to catch a nasty dose of lazy...

On good and bad organisations http://deadfi.sh/1z0YQph

From Kotter's 'Leading Change' http://deadfi.sh/1EHcKOF 
Reading John Kotter's 'Leading Change', he makes the point that many organisations conflate management with leadership, yet they are far from being the same thing: "Management makes a system work. It helps you do what you know how to do....

Coming to Australia... http://deadfi.sh/19KMj1c 
I'm posting this somewhat later than intended (it's been one of those weeks) but I'll be coming over to Sydney next week for meetings and to begin the planning for an exciting (but for now secret-squirrel) work-related project. I'm always...

On getting things done... http://deadfi.sh/1Dwekon 
I loved some of the quotes that Austin Kleon pulled out from his reading of David Allen's classic Getting Things Done. I hadn't read Allen's book but judging by some of the gems that Kleon picked out it looks like...
