It’s already September – where has that time gone? Still, here it is, August’s recap of my life as a career coach, writer, and human being, holidaying and getting to grips with the garden.
Are you showing up in full on LinkedIn?
There is a more playful side to my nature – which I think emerges more on Twitter. The platform where I am more inclined to respond with a light-hearted quip – where appropriate and relevant. Not something that I would necessarily do on LinkedIn. So which parts of your personality are less well-known on LinkedIn?
And while we are on the subject, what has happened to the LinkedIn Algorithm? There no longer seems to be a link between post views and visits to my profile.
Or is this just me 😊.
‘I think they are rather lovely,’ my husband’s comment about the Cordylines in our garden.
They are not my favourite, and there is one large plant near the shed that I would quite like to remove.
So, in response to my ‘really?’
My husband turns to me and says, ‘haven’t you realised I like spiky things, Janice?’
Enough said 😉.
And after twenty-five years together, he still manages to surprise me.
Seeing this made me smile.
The toolbox I made almost 40 years ago, while on my engineering course, is still going strong. I guess it must be the craftmanship 😉. And at the time, I had no idea quite how my career was going to pan out, and I certainly had no idea I would end up running my own business.
It just goes to show careers rarely follow a straight line.
The Kindness Project
It was interesting to work through the BBC’s kindness questionnaire and think through what kindness means to me – it takes around 30 minutes to complete. I look forward to seeing the results.
Until next month
