Being Brilliant and Human

“Being Brilliant and human” curates and shares human, practical and realistic approaches to life and work for those who are following their own path and are juggling multiple projects or streams of focus.
Hi Brilliant and Human I hope this finds you content and in good spirits.

As someone I appreciate knowing, I hope you don’t mind me sending you the first copy of a newsletter that I have been pondering for a while, to share with you many of the useful articles, opinions and content that I myself find helpful.

I don't know about you, but with my low threshold for boredom, I have moved from the panic/crisis-mode into action-mode. Even when things are uncertain, we can set our own limits to focus us, and with them, make a plan..........

The articles below have the theme of educating yourself, being reflective, what productivity really means and that there isn't a shortcut to doing the work, I hope you find them useful.
This newsletter will go out monthly, to opt-in to receive them, please subscribe here.

I hope you enjoy!
Warmest Wishes

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In the situation we find ourselves, I want to show friendship and solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement. I have found this powerful as a starting point to educate myself.

A great book!

Sway: Unravelling unconscious bias by Dr Pragya Agarwal
I have just started this book, which was recommended by two people I regard highly, again pertinent for all of us to understand our own situation and make changes to how we conduct ourselves.
