Quote I’m ponderingHere’s to strong women, May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.” – Unknown

International Women’s day – David Wiseman wrote a great quick read on LinkedIn for International Women’s day. He highlights an interesting response for when men ask “Why is there no Men’s Day?” That’s because every other day of the year is International Men’s Day.”

Some thoughts on life: A friend forwarded me this piece on Life, laughter, love and the gaping hole left in our collective sense of humour. In it the author states “Right now, too many people are trying to be like Elon Musk and Steve Jobs, but not enough of them are trying to be like John Candy.” I think he’s right and hope you agree. Let’s all be more like John Candy.

“I wish I could go to more meetings,” said no one, ever. – The author of a new book, The Surprising Science of Meetings, has been interviewing over the last few months and this interview is a wonderful insightful on workplace meetings.  In it you’ll see research based ideas on improving meetings, why we need them and how to avoid the ones you don’t need.

For those of you with a WSJ account, he has a great article here also.

Personal brand – I’m thinking about my ‘brand’ more as I’m reading Career Distinction . I’m not sold on seeing myself as a brand, yet I understand it’s somewhat inevitable within a modern workplace.

Have a great weekend everyone!
