Welcome to our Newsletter. You’ve received it because either you requested it (extra thanks!) or you met Jeremy while networking. We offer a change from other newsletters which do demand an awful lot of reading, and hope you will find it diverting. We aim to publish once every two weeks, but sometimes the flesh is weak even as the spirit is willing.
If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.
Never give a sword to a man who can’t dance.
Every truth has four corners: as a teacher I give you one corner, and it is for you to find the other three.
Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

Success from the inside out
A three day workshop from Chuck Spezzano, 16-18 April, London
This workshop is about increasing your success in all areas of your life. Because success is a generic term, it encompasses all the significant aspects of our lives which include, work, career, relationships, money and health. It is a key ingredient for happiness. The purpose of this workshop is to help empower you by providing you with a new way to address this central issue from an inner perspective. More information, and to book, please go here
Three precepts of effective leadership. Jeremy writes for freshbusinessthinking.com and, in this article, talks about some ways in which leaders show leadership by the attitude they take to their work.
Feline EI guru Tiddles the cat illustrates a fundamental lesson: if someone is attacking you and you don’t answer back, a fight does not take place. You can imagine what would happen if Tiddles hadn’t kept her cool. (duration 1 min)
Temple Grandin, diagnosed with autism as a child, talks about how her mind works – sharing her ability to “think in pictures,” which helps her solve problems that more usual brains might miss. She makes the case that the world needs people on the autism spectrum, visual thinkers, pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers, and all kinds of smart geeky kids. (duration 20 mins)
Contributions always gratefully received.
If you have been, thank you for reading.
