The Bits In-Between

For my first degree, I majored in History. (This was the late 80s. There was less history then). It was all wars, revolutions, and crises. Probably for the same reasons as HBO mini-series re-enact those bits of history. TV loves drama. So does study.

But most of history isn’t crises. It’s the bits in-between. Fifty years ago wasn’t entirely Woodstock, moon landings, & Vietnam. Maybe your grandparents were there, but mostly probably not. They were trying to make rent, live a life, & get ahead, in spite of whatever they faced.

Fifty years from now, showrunners and historians will focus on the obvious blerghh events of this year. Fair enough. Someone should, probably sooner. Those willfully ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it and drag others down with them.

I raise this as it’s a new year and the tendency is to look back in review before looking forward to plan. Yeah nah. I’m going to look back at the bits in-between. Family. Friends. Re-inventing work. Cooperation. Resilience.

What are your 2020 ‘bits in-between’?


About Terry Williams - The Brain-Based Boss

I'm all about engaging people and helping you engage yours to influence behaviour to improve results - at work and at home. Maybe you're a manager, a salesperson, a leader, a parent, a presenter or an event organiser? You need to grab your people's attention, create some rapport, be memorable and influence behaviour change. How can we do that? I'm originally a trainer by trade, turned manager, turned comedian and partway back again. Author of 'THE GUIDE: How to kiss, get a job & other stuff you need to know', I write and speak about how to engage people, be they employees, family or yourself. How can we connect with people’s own internal motivations and help them use their own inner passions to drive towards productivity, success and happiness? And hopefully have a few laughs along the way... As a trainer facilitating learning and development in others, I find myself drawing on my own extensive business experience. I specialise in the delivery of high impact, customised training solutions for organisations that are serious about improving the performance and lives of their people.
