it’s been a sad week watching the destruction and devastation going on in the Ukraine. I cannot imagine what the people in that country are feeling and experiencing right now. My prayers are with them.
I need to ask more, and different, questions. I have been in the same field for a long time. As a result, my experience can sometimes bog me down and also give me tunnel vision. Asking different questions will help me look at people, situations and experiences with new eyes and help me generate new insights.
1 thing I read
My book of the week is “Little Bets” by Peter Sims
“Anybody can do this. You just need to ask the right questions.” This was Chet Pipkins’ realisation that eventually led to the creation of Belkin, a computer accessories company. Questions lead to experiments and experiments lead to breakthroughs. Mistakes along the way is a given and it is only a failure if you give up.
1 thing I am grateful for
I heard Janet Jackson’s song Control yesterday. I think it was from her first solo album. I couldn’t help but smile (and dance) because I am so fortunate to have grown up being influenced by the likes of Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Salt n’ Pepa, TLC, Sybil, Missy E Elliot and all the other strong black female artists of the time. They stood tall and owned their uniqueness. I am grateful for their influence. I would not be who I am today if it wasn’t for the example they set. Of course there have been many strong women who have influenced me and you can read my previous post on this topic here.
I will leave you with a blessing. Have an awesome week!
-May you be happy
- May you be healthy
- May you be safe
- May you live with ease
Bye for now 🌼
