The holidays are over. Well? How was it for you?
Have you entered 2013 filled with purpose, focus and pizzazz? Did the mince pies & movies out-manoeuvre you? Have you made resolutions? Modifications? Any of that?
Things have been quietly moving at FBHQ and there’s a little buzz around some of the emerging work, which feels enticing.
On a personal note, as it seems I have barely moved from behind my books and desk for 6 months, I’ve decided to take back my fitness and have signed up to undertake two 70 plus mile bike rides (one in April and another in June) and it seems I’m getting pressured into a second triathlon at the start of August. I have some work to do to shrug off my winter torpor, but I’m certainly up for it. 2013 will also be the Year of the MSc Dissertation, something I have mixed feeling about -anticipation, apprehension… those sorts of things. I’m already looking forward to What’s Next when the course is finished. Watch this space, I guess….
The immediate What Next is clear. In the coming weeks, things on the blog are going to get skewed towards dialogue, as David Goddin (find him on @changecontinuum ) & I gear up to deliver the first sessions on Exploring Dialogue in February. Next week, there will be a series of blog posts which aim to map and consider different aspects of dialogue – I’m hoping it generates some interest and insights into the subject; I definitely want some comments and thoughts generated. There will be a guest blog or two and of course, we are looking for sign-ups for the February & March dialogue sessions and beyond.
And this is the first post of 2013, so it feels right and important to wish everyone well for the coming year.
Happy New Year all.
I hope it brings you brilliance, luck and love.
