There’s a saying in Jamaica “Mi gladbag buss” which means “I am overflowing with joy.” And that’s exactly how I feel now that I am a Huffpost blogger. Here’s my first post: From JOB to JOY: How to Find JOY at Work, No Matter What Your Job Is Please feel free to comment, share widely […]

True Leadership

My sister Carole studied dance, unlike my brother and me who went to the pinnacle of business success with MBAs from Harvard Business School.

From JOB to JOY! It’s only one letter, yet it’s a huge chasm for many people. JOB denotes drudgery, boredom, suffering, penury, lack of freedom, painful necessity – everything that’s totally antithetical to joy. For many people, moving from JOB to JOY just doesn’t seem possible. Yet it is. Retirement is one route. Stay in […]

But then Warren Weir, a young, wiry sprinter, also from Jamaica, did the most amazing thing – he won the […]

“Business or pleasure” the Immigration Officer at the airport asked me. “Well, I really don’t know” I responded, as I pondered what to choose when your work is your pleasure. How interesting that a view of work as non-pleasure should be so pervasive that it makes it’s way on every Immigration form of every country, […]
