I can’t believe that we’ve now reached the last letter of the alphabet!
I’ve been giving you lots of differents tools, ideas and impulses to solve problems or to improve specific situations in your life… whether at work or at home. I’m curious: how has the implementation been going? What has helped you most? Where do you still experience difficulties?
“You can say YOU to me”. Some say that it was a former German President who made this offer to the Queen of England when they met… others say it was a German Chancellor who said so to an American President… we don’t really know if it’s true but it would express the intention of creating a certain degree of familiarity :-)…
…the letter “x” is happy to be the letter of the month. For a mathematician, “x” is the unknown variable. The one that can be solved with an equation, the one that can be the key to a problem.
Whether you like mathematics or not, the “x” is also used in expressions like the “X-factor”;
“W” is the letter of the month. We are coming to the end of the alphabet where the number of words is getting smaller… I chose the W-questions (or the WH-questions) or the open questions! Who, what, why, when, where, whose, which etc…. and I will even include “how”. Even if…
So she taught me the piano and later on the flute (or the other way around, I can’t recall properly). Whatever… I just didn’t like to play these instruments! I wanted to play my own VOICE!!! Yes, the word of the month!
After a long break of music lessons… I started again with…
UNIQUE, the word of the month. I admit that it took a while before I found it. I’m not sure if it’s cliché to write about this topic… trust that I’ll find a practical twist to it!
There are many words with UNI-something and they all have the same common root: the latin word “unus” which means “one”.
And this week, I received a management magazine with the title “Cooperation 4.0”, the 4.0 referring to the digitalisation era. Now you’re wondering: what do these two written pieces of work have in common? They both relate to how the human beings organise themselves to work (and live) together.
Wow, it seems like the complete northern hemisphere is experiencing one of the warmest summers ever. Global warming is here, whether we like it or not. And this month, we have the letter „S“ that could be „summer“, however I chose the word SOLUTION.
Oups! Soon we’ll have half of 2018 behind us… how have these last 6 months been for you? Do you need to adjust a few or many things?
For June, we have the letter “R” and I’ll get straight to the word of the month: RESPONSIBILITY. How does it resonate with you? Is it heavy or boring or sexy or fun or paralyzing or empowering or anything in-between these colorful options?
The letter “Q” this month… I was really tempted to choose “quality” over “quantity” but I like to think outside the box. So, while looking in the dictionary (yes, that big book can inspire me!), I saw the word “quadruple”. It made me think of “quad” (a four-rotation jump in figure skating) and then I switched the language for French, ending finally with the word QUATRE, which is the number 4 (four) in English. Do you still follow me? It doesn’t matter, keep on reading, trust me you’ll be fine.
Still April… and a word starting with “P”… I admit that I had a long look in the dictionary to find the perfect inspiration. And it doesn’t turn out I will be writing about perfection because I would be under too much pressure ;-)!
PRESENCE is the word that I chose. What comes to your mind when you read that word? Maybe different things, like the radiance of a leader or of an actor on stage, or the fact of being physically in a room, or the fact of having one’s total attention to what’s going on in the moment.
Oh là là! A word starting with “O” this month. And this one was really easy to find: ORCHESTER.
I like to use the ORCHESTER as a picture to describe a group of people who gather for a common goal, e.g.a company or an association or a family. Together, we interact to create something:
