Why Good Leaders Make You Feel Safe …

For those who don’t know Simon Sinek, he is a business visionary and Management Theorist.  Whilst this video was posted up on Ted back in March 2014, it has a timeless message.  Best part for me is about 10 minutes in, and I quote:

Leadership is a choice. It is not a rank. I know many people at the senior most levels of organizations who are absolutely not leaders. They are authorities, and we do what they say because they have authority over us, but we would not follow them. And I know many people who are at the bottoms of organizations who have no authority and they are absolutely leaders, and this is because they have chosen to look after the person to the left of them, and they have chosen to look after the person to the right of them. This is what a leader is.”

Here is the video.  Enjoy!

My brother is an eye specialist and while common sense should prevail, he stresses, as do I, to please take the care needed when observing the solar eclipse tomorrow 🙂


My Photography Journey Continues Here …

I’ve been fascinated with photography for as long as I can remember.  From the first time I saw a photo in my hand (taken by a Polaroid camera), I knew I wanted to learn photography.  It wasn’t until I first became a father that I put serious investment into this popular of most hobbies. I wanted to ensure I had a decent camera to take photos of my first child. Picked up a great offer for a Canon 400D and haven’t looked back since.

Since then, I’ve been on a couple of courses and have been inspried by many photoblogs since then.  Nigel Beighton (check his blogs on infrared photography and those taken from his humble smartphone) really brought photography home for me and I thank him continually for helping me along this journey.

And so, here I go.  Consolidating some mini-photo-blogs into this section of my main blog, techinmydna.  Look forward to your feedback!

Technology in my DNA … Past, Present, Future …

And so it begins!

After uhming and ahing for far too long, it is indeed time I consolidated a number of blogs and posts into one, personal site … This one!

Yes.  We’re living in fascinating, exciting times in the world of technology.  What was once science fiction is now reality.  More on that later.

However this blog is much more than just ‘technology’.  I’m intending to blend in other dimensions to this blog covering all manner of subjects.

Looking forward to seeing you on this journey of mine … Until then, have a great day!
