Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media. I call these Friday’s Finds.
“The given is not given unless it is taken, and taking is an act of interpretation. Always.” —@dweinberger
“The most important skill to learn is how to distinguish between confident people, and people who actually know what they are taking about.” —@existentialcoms
“History is not another name for the past, as many people imply. It is the name for stories about the past.” —A. J. P. Taylor via @RayBoomhower
Conway’s Law: “Any organization that designs a system will produce a design whose structure is a copy of the organization’s communication structure.”
We’ve also found that self-management has been like a turbo-boost for the continuous improvement of our people and our offerings.

And more feedback has meant we grow and improve our skills faster, and provide better service to our clients.”
