Diamonds and Stone

Some days are diamonds, some days are stone.
– John Denver

Some days are both.

The speakers at the 2022 premier of my internal talks were sensational. Nearly a hundred people, listened to in rapt attention, and with gratitude. One speaker couldn’t make it – an accident requiring a hospital visit.

I’ve gone from being in two minds about ever doing them, to having an eager audience that dialled in well before the talks began. Is there merit in turning these into a late evening session?

The stones today were discoveries that signal how rigged corporate appointments are. It’s all ‘jobs for the boys’, but not all boys. Some of the most inspiring people I know have pulled stumps from the race, some voluntarily, others being explicitly told.

There must be other ways to eke out a living, surely?
