SMEs for the Sovereign Professional

This is an interesting post from Seth Godin for a couple of reasons. Firstly, he is exploring how to get a job with a small company, noting that the Fortune 500 has accounted for a net loss in number of jobs over the last twenty years.  In doing that, Godin notes the different perspective of […]

How to Recover your Core Rhythm–Tony Schwartz, HBR

I enjoyed this post from Tony Schwartz on the HBR blog.  It’s a reminder of the importance of good quality sleep, exercise and rhythm in life: really working in a focused way; deeply recovering afterwards. Technorati Tags: Wellbeing,Tony Schwartz,HBR,Harvard Business Review

Death of the Dining Room–TomorrowToday

Thought-provoking predictions about the UK in 205o from TomorrowToday’s UK co-founder Graeme Codrington (also printed in The Sun). With a forecasted UK population of 75 million, it’s hard not to interpret his views as other than dystopian, unless your view of heaven is a blue-rinse invasion of the olive groves of Bournemouth.  However, it is […]

Burning Pine Web Refresh

I am embarking on a refresh of my web-site.  I have just finished updating the words but I also want to update the images – especially those rather dated head-shots – and (probably) re-platform the whole thing. My ideal, of course, would be to bring the site (http://burningpine.com) and this blog (http://burningpine.wordpress.com) together but that […]

Justice for Le Mot Juste

A call for clarity or the accidental road to Newspeak Hell? Guides to Business Writing invariably advise the author to keep their language simple; in effect to use several small words in preference to a longer one.  The advice rankles with me.  I can’t help feeling that an aversion to “big words” – be they […]

Towards Flexible Learning

I just love the serendipity of having BBC Radio 4 on in the car. Today, I happened to catch a fascinating segment in the You and Yours programme on higher education.  The Open University (OU) has seen a sharp increase in students in the under-25 age bracket.  These now make up 17% of the student […]
