Last year in October, I was approached (on twitter) by a not for profit organisation based in North Carolina that helps other national organisations such as Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) by donating funds raised by creating annual shows. These organisations help kids suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy by 'providing equipment, medical attention, and most importantly, support.'
In our professional lives, sometimes we have to work with people we don't like. The reason could be anything: from their uncanny and annoying behaviour, to the way they approach their work, or their habit of asking useless questions. So, how can we solve this problem and find a way to create a healthy working relationship with such people? Peter Bregman writes about the reason behind this problem with an unusual solution.
I was never a regular reader of books, newspaper, or any other kind of literature in general, until recently. Apart from reading text books to get good marks while studying in school, and then in university, I never thought of reading as fun, or as a source of knowledge.
Even though I work for myself, with no employees or partner, the importance of being a part of a good network has always been beneficial for me. It acts as a platform for professional development by interacting with people and a source of prospective clients. Moreover, through these networks I always look for creative people I can collaborate with.
