I don’t have too many pics of me standing behind a lectern, speaking in public. I have a few of me facilitating workshops at various conferences.
The photo below was taken at the Agile Practitioners Conference in 2016 in Tel Aviv, Israel, of me, facilitating a 90-minute workshop on Leading in an Agile environment. This year I’m planning more conference talks and more pics of me doing such. That is one of my areas of growth for this year.
Every Monday Cee posts four questions part of the sharing your (my) world. Click here for this week’s one, which fell on January 1st – the first one of the year on the first day of the year.
What one word describes you best?
Determined maybe. Focused perhaps. Ambitious? I’ll go with all three. Empathetic. Compassionate. Soft-hearted. If I answer this question tomorrow the word(s) will be different.
What is set as the background on your computer?
The standard Mac wallpaper of waves lapping the beach. I don’t find it particularly useful to have a wallpaper that I never see because of all the apps I have open. I do have a screensaver slideshow of my photos, those that I’ve posted on this blog.
If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been to?
I’m going to Belgium on Thursday for a training course. I’ll be there a few days before to get to know Ghent, the city I’ll be at. I’m travelling via the Netherlands. So Belgium and the Netherlands are two countries I’ve never been to and will, this week, although the Netherlands is just in passing (for now). In July Che and I are going to Thailand. I’ve visited so far:
Born in Mozambique
Live in South Africa
I want to get one of those wall maps of the world that you scratch off each country as you visit it, like one of these Scratch Maps.
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?
Christmas and New Year week and I appreciated time with family, food and the lovely hot weather.
Full of ‘I don’ wanna’ and ‘I wanna stay home‘ I dragged my feet through the revolving door of the gym. Classes are scaled down for the festive season so there was nothing interesting to do. Only boring treadmill and please don’t even mention the bicycle.
So the rowing machine it was and what a great workout I had. I felt great afterwards and this morning even greater which for me means more energy and flexibility. I rowed for 10 minutes, rested for 1, stretched for 2, then started again, this time faster.
I’ll stick to the rowing machine again today and probably until all the classes start up again. It’s a short workout which means that I will do it every day.
I’m looking forward to it today. There’s none of the ‘I don’ wanna’ and ‘I wanna stay home‘, so let’s go!
