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 rushed to interrupt my "special" friend who was engaged in depth with another group of people. She wasn't nearly as excited as I was, telling me to go away as she was busy having fun...

One of my favourite books has a boring title Leadership and Self Deception. I try to read this book every year. It is one of those books that the more you read it the more you find out. As with a lot of books I read, the more experience I have the more understanding I have of the content of the book. The more understanding I have of the content, the better I am able to execute on the ideas in the book.  read more...

This week I was at a client site where we were presenting the findings of a technology review.  The review had followed the consulting method.  Current State Assessment -> Desired State -> Recommendations. The study had been detailed and there were many findings and a solid set of technical recommendations.  We kept the presentation to 10 slides, the report had all the details, there was lots of useful discussion.  They gave us more time than they had initially wanted to based on the the interest in what we had to say.  All was good, but, they wanted something else. 

"you have told us all of the technical answers - you have given us the options - but what is your opinion, what should we do now?"
