Late last year I attended a breakfast in Sydney, where the guest speaker was discussing ways that you could grow your career. One of the concepts that has stuck in my mind is that of the “oh shit” moment. A moment each day where you look at what you’re doing and think “Oh shit, what have I gotten myself into.” The presenter argued the case that if you don’t have an oh shit moment from time to time – preferably daily – you weren’t pushing yourself enough and were simply coasting through life.
I like to think the best of people. I really do. I can’t help it. I believe that everyone is entitled to a fair chance, and I refuse to let bullying stand. If I see it anywhere I have to say something. It’s part of my DNA.
