Love Song

“Just for you, here’s a love song, and it makes me glad to say it’s been a lovely day and it’s OK”

I was motivated by Mervyn Dinnen’s recent post, Beautiful Noise. In the spirit of sharing I offer you a Love Song….actually I’ll leave the song to The Damned. Here are four recent blog posts I really enjoyed and would like to share with you.

Love this idea. Normally I don’t much care for quotes. “I’m not insensitive, I just don’t care” – Homer Simpson. But then I read this by Alison Chisnell and I came over all…motivated. What I love about this story is the sense of involvement to reinvigorate what might otherwise be seen as a rather tired method.

Yeah I know – Thanksgiving was last Thursday. But I’m writing this now and I didn’t want you to miss out on this lovely giving of thanks by Matt Chevy. Matt’s an interesting guy busy making his own way in the world. Matt designed my website and he has a good way with words.

And here’s an ask from TheHRD for some retail love. Not love of the shopping, but love for the retail staff. I’ve worked in retail so I appreciate the request for some festive love and understanding. And Callum Saunders’ follow up comment is great!

I love to read real life examples on leadership. You don’t see many of these about. Gareth Jones wrote a piece called Lessons in Leadership based on his experience of Greg Dyke which fits the bill for me. Great vignettes on managing others, engagement, you and responsibility. Visible leadership, spot on.

Love it.

PS – welcome back FlipChartFT – punk’s not dead 🙂

I’ll be the ticket if you’re my collector
I’ve got the fare if you’re my inspector
I’ll be the luggage if you’ll be the porter
I’ll be the parcel if you’ll be my sorter

Just for you here’s a love song
Just for you here’s a love song
And it makes me glad to say
It’s been a lovely day
And it’s okay

I’ll be the mail you’ll be the guard
I’ll be the ink on your season ticket card
I’ll be the rubbish you’ll be the bin
I’ll be the paint on the sign
If you’ll be the tin
