Who is your hero?

By Stephen Bruyant-Langer

 
Heroes

 
Sometimes, I’m asked who my hero is. I used to answer by naming a celebrity.

Earlier on I would have mentioned Nelson Mandela, Richard Branson, Barack Obama or other well-known personalities. Then my answer gradually changed. I started answering that my hero is myself in 10 years. I am chasing myself as I will be in 10 years. And now, 10 years later, when being asked who my hero is, I still answer: “Myself in 10 years”. I’m not even close to becoming my own hero. But maybe I’m getting closer. So, who knows, maybe in 10 years?

How does The Four-Leaf Clover work for you?

In my family we have a lot of sayings. One of them is “Do something”.
 
This means that you need to take charge and move in a certain direction – not just wait and see what happens. Another is “both-and”. This means that very often it is not a question of doing either-or, but rather choosing to do both. It’s an attitude where you don’t need to limit yourself – rather, you prioritize what you want to do. Sir Winston Churchill used to say: “History will be kind to me. I intend to write it”.

The magic combination of the full moon, the glorious sunrise, the view from the top of Africa, and the curve of the horizon was absolutely breathtaking. The adventure gave rise to the following key learning:

Is There Still A Line Between Your Personal Identity And Your Professional Identity?

I am convinced we are approaching a more integrated lifestyle where the dividing lines between work and personal time will gradually disappear.
 
Do you remember when we talked about an on-line universe versus an off-line universe? That dividing line blurred a long time ago. Then we started talking about no-line. And now everything is on-line.

When You’ve Done Well, Then What?

By Stephen Bruyant-Langer

I am often surprised by how privileged people are unable to see the bigger picture, focusing on nitty-gritty hygiene factors in their lives.
 
Most people I deal with in my consultative work have done well. By many standards they are successful. However most still have existential doubts and unsolved dilemmas. Most of them still yearn for Freedom, Autonomy and Independence (don’t we all?). And the greatest comfort comes with the words: “Know That You Are Not Alone”.

Why Don’t Women Put Their Birth Year on Facebook?

On a daily basis I’m surprised that I can’t see the age of the women I wish Happy Birthday on Facebook. Most men put theirs. There is no need to be embarrassed!
 
We all go through the same life phases. We all live through the same existential challenges. But when it comes to age it is as if half the population uses the ostrich strategy and buries their head in the sand.
