Why choice doesn’t always bring us what we want: thoughts from a Professor at Columbia Business School

This video recommends people differentiate between decisions that are “uplifting and meaningful” and the every day decisions, or decisions that distract us from choosing our better lives. I know I can get caught up in choosing to do what has to be done, rather then doing what is best for me as a whole person. […]

Are you one of the 1-in-5 Australian women who would have plastic surgery to improve your promotional prospects at work?

Adding to the panty hose and cut and colour routine I wrote about earlier this week, it seems the cost of being a woman in business is about to skyrocket with 85% of women in a recent poll by The Heat Group confirming what we already know: there’s greater pressure on women to be attractive […]

Sexual harassment – why people who witness it don’t report it, and why we really need to

Hot off the back of a settlement in the DJs sexual harassment case, incidences of sexual harassment are still alarmingly common across all industries. Whether you go by the stories you’ve been unofficially told or from the stats, the rate of women being made to feel uncomfortable in the workplace is way too high.  With […]

Ever wondered what other busy business women were reading and loving? “The Absolute Best Books…”

Reading is one of the many things I would like to do more of. Not just getting into the books that are bumping around my office for professional development, but also fiction books too.

What are the lessons you’re teaching your kids? We took the opportunity of a holiday long weekend to visit my mum interstate as the timing of the trip coincided with my son’s favourite AFL team battling it out against my mum’s beloved team. Perhaps only those of you with the love for AFL will appreciate why we’d plan a long distance trip around a game of footy, but suffice to say it was a passion project! With every ounce of anticipation, the game was a tough, tight duel and could easily have gone either way. Yet when the final siren sounded, it wasn’t our team that was smiling. It sure is tough for a 10 year old boy to sit within a crowd 41,000+ people all cheering for the opposite side. It was tough for him to see the exhaustion and disappointment on the faces of the players he adores. And yet, it’s so important for him to learn that his team won’t always win. There’s so many lessons in that, but the one I chose to instil is that you won’t always back the team that wins but you’ll always back the team that you love. That’s why I asked him to wear his team colours home the next day, and show his support even when the chips are down. That’s the kind of commitment I want my son to learn and the kind of team player I want him to be. PS. #gotheGiants @GWSGiants #neversurrender ... See MoreSee Less

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.
