In the beginning

I've been telling people for too long they should be writing their own blogs. Thankfully, many of my team are doing so, yet I've never practiced what I preach (yet!). Always told myself I have the perfect excuse - no time. Not sure either what the theme of this blog is going to be, so it should really be titled (like most things in my life) "Work in progress".

If there was to be a theme though, it would be to attempt to live by the quote I have outside my office. So here goes - my attempt to do what Neal Stephenson in the Confusion said: "Pay attention, that's all ... Notice things. Connect what you've noticed. Connect it into a picture. Think of how the picture might be changed; and act to change it. Some of your acts might turn out to be foolish, but others will reward you in surprising ways; and in the meantime, simply by being active instead of passive, you have a kind of immunity that's hard to explain."

Time will tell.
