We will start off with the predictable. January, and there’s a new blog in town – or should that be 10,000 new blogs, or maybe a million new blogs. The truth is I don’t know. And I don’t know because I’m not really from this world that we currently find ourselves haplessly swirling around in. Hopefully, that is what will make this blog unpredictable. This is the blog of a plateaued former high flying executive, feeling more and more at odds with the new world, and more and more appreciative of the incredible journey I’ve taken to get here. Because this corporate nonsense was never meant to be me, this was never meant to be my life. I was born to keep people entertained. Hopefully through this blog, in some small way, that is one of the things that we will achieve. As an early boss once said about me, supposedly out of earshot, – “Hmm, strange fish!”.
This blog is also for those of us who often wake up thinking “how the hell did I get here?”, quickly followed by “when am I going to get found out?” I believe there are far more of us out there than many would care to believe. My fervent hope is that this blog will both encourage and entertain, as one thing I am sure of is that those of us with a healthy slice of self doubt and overt awareness have far more capability and creativity than the arrogant executive “norm”, – male or female but let’s face it, usually male – who will be far too busy barking and regurgitating conceptual twaddle about building the future than to bother with this irrelevant namby pamby nonense.
Most of all my hope for this blog is that I enjoy writing it, and if I really push the boat out, that others enjoy reading it. I have a long standing and unrealised ambition to write, and I would be lying if I said anything different. Writing is a release, and if in some small way I make people smile or nod or even sob, then I will be delighted. Far more delighted than by any damn presentation of corporate bollocks, that’s for sure. If you enjoy the blog, or it strikes a chord with you, I’d love to know about it.
