Career Experiments

I've been thinking a lot about career lately. Particularly, how we come up with options for ourselves. This job, that vertical, this industry, that location. So many options; billions of possibilities. How do we narrow it down? Career Experiments is a term I heard on a great podcast recently. I

What is creativity?

It’s a question I’ve asked myself plenty of times before. And it came up again this week, during an altMBA prompt, ‘Am I creative?’ When I started to reflect on this more than I have before, it came down to that deeper question, ‘What is creativity?’ I always

This is Day 1

Today, I start. I chose to write daily on Wednesday 10 Mar 21 (yesterday), as part of my final prompt in the 4-week altMBA program. This is me following through. Last night I didn’t get to bed early. But I still chose to wake up. Because if I didn’
