If you haven't seen the movie "The Founder" I can recommend it if you are into movies about business. There is some great cinematography as well with wide open scenes of the vastness of the American Mid West, capturing the 1950s vibe. I really enjoyed the movie and refrained from saying beatlejuice 3 times as Michael Keaton plays the main protagonist Ray Kroc. 

The story tells us how McDonald's came to greatness. It is a great story and being a student of business it taught me a number of lessons.

I discovered the meaning of life in my mid twenties, at a party at Milson's Point while staring up at the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I was so excited about my discovery.

I have read that change is one of the hardest things for any of us to achieve.  Moving into 2017 many of us will have looked at what we want to do better (or for the first time) and what we want to leave behind.  Change, lasting change, seems elusive.

Last week in the quiet time between Christmas and New Year I caught up with an old work colleague who I hadn't seen for over 10 years.  We had been in touch through social media and the odd happy birthday text, but hadn't seen each other in person.  We were working on my friend's CV as she wanted to get back into the corporate world after several years bringing up her daughter.  One comment that stuck in my mind was that we both said that the other hadn't changed a bit.  The years may have been kind to us both - but why couldn't we see the extra grey hair or the proliferation of wrinkles and other vestiges of aging in each other?
