« 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 »;
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…
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.
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.
I love to watch the olympic competitions. You might have guessed that my favorite discipline is figure skating and if you had the chance to watch some of the competitions, I’m sure you agree that we were spoiled with great performances. There are even some sports that we only get to see during the Olympics:
Welcome to the first CaroliNews of the year! I hope you had a great start in 2018 and that you are still inspired to achieve your dearest goals of the year. Remember: we still have 11 months to go :-).
Only a few days left before we reach 2018… and the letter of the month is « L ». A few weeks ago, I attended an event with a good friend at Hannover’s town hall where we all watched the live streaming of the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. The mayor was proud to mention that…
November… 11th month of the year… « K »… 11th letter of the alphabet… It’s no big secret: I opted for the word KEY this month. If you look it up in the dictionary, you’ll find many definitions for that word…
