I know that it can be hard to speak up – especially when your opinion is different to either your boss or the group – but it’s important to remember that discussion is healthy and anyone who thinks otherwise, is mad.

Of course, you can also end up in situations where there is too much discussion and not enough decision – but that’s a post for another day – so if you’re one of those people who find it hard to speak up, some of these old posts might be of use.

+ We Need More George Parker’s

+ Never Take Sense For Granted

+ To Solve A Problem, You Need To Know The Problem

+ The Power In Objective Conflict

+ Presentaphobia

+ The Reward For Conformity Is Everyone Likes You, But You

+ Why Good Bosses Listen

+ If You Can Look In The Mirror, You Are Doing Something Right

+ Don’t Wait Till You’re Spoken To

+ Don’t Settle

+ Imperfect Solutions

+ Life’s Too Short

There’s another post I wrote ages ago that really goes into this subject, but for the life of me I can’t find it. That’ll teach me for not categorising my posts … but then I never expected that I’d want to read any of my rambling rants again, let alone anyone else.

I’m guessing you couldn’t be bothered to write anything new today.

Comment by DH

Thanks for implying I do on other days. Means a lot.

Comment by Rob

What do you mean “categorise”? You only do 4 types of post.

1 Planning rubbish
2 Mental theory rubbish
3 Sentimental rubbish
4 Family sweetness

Not that hard to find anything when you think of it that way.

Comment by DH

You make a good point Dave.

Comment by Bazza

Sadly he does. I might actually create those 4 categories in your honour Dave. What an accolade that would be eh!?

Comment by Rob

Yeah, I’d hang a banner on my wall.

This post is like an Oprah show. Just worse.

Comment by Billy Whizz

That sounds like you’re saying you spend your days watching Oprah reruns.

Comment by Bazza

At least I don’t take old shit, put it in a new box and say its the latest and greatest.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Comment by niko

That’s like getting praise from Andy, just not quite as good.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Well done Billy. Sorry Bazza.

Comment by Rob

I disagree. But you all knew that already.

Comment by John

Disagree with this post or me in general?

Probably both.

Comment by Rob

In general.

Comment by John

It’s a clip show post. But that’s okay as the point was spot on, plus we all know the world needs more George Parker’s.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

The Campbell compilation album,which only serves to show you should write more of the good stuff.

By the way, if you’ve nothing to say, it’s really OK to not post for a day. Just leave it blank, most people come for comments – or creche for fellow misfits

Comment by northern

I know it is and I know they do, but I’m a creature of habit, why else have I not had alcohol for 27 years and worn Birkenstocks for 20?

Comment by Rob

Self confidence and comfort in your own skin I would hope

Comment by northern

Good morning, dears.

Comment by Marcus
