Life’s Change Agent

This quote (emphasis mine) comes from Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address, and speaks to some core fundamentals of what for me is a big part of “Enterprise 2.0″ or “social business”. It’s the hard part, the change.

No one wants to die, even people who want to go to Heaven don’t want to die to get there.

And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it.

And that is as it should be. Because death is very likely the single best invention of life.

It’s life’s change agent; it clears out the old to make way for the new.

[…]

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.  Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other  people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out  your own inner voice, heart and intuition. They somehow already know  what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.


Goodbye summer!

So, realising that it has been over three months since I last wrote anything here, and summer is on its way out, what have we been up to!?

Good question, but between Tania, work, play, and a week away, the summer has flown by!

I now have plenty of catching up to do, photos to upload to flickr, and continue my efforts to get my ubuntu linux system connected to the internet so that I can ditch this windoz junk!

Has it really been two months…?

I have just realised two months have flown by since my last post! I’d better start making an effort round here!

We have been pretty busy, with a trip down to Extremadura for Easter, and a couple of christenings, including Tania’s. Plenty of photos to sort through and update my Flickr stream.

Tania is now 5 months old, and still growing fast, more on her to come for sure!
