I love this post.

I love it when you write about your life and family because not only is it nice to hear you express yourself emotionally, it also shows why you are such a great planner.

The difference between you and countless others is that you are a human being first and a career person second. Some would regard that as a weakness, but I don't. That doesn't mean you don't care about your job or career - the passion and care you put into your work proves that - it's just that you want to be defined by what you do with [and for] your family, not for some oil brand ... which, if truth be told, is not all that different to NIKE, Converse, Levi's or countless other more 'top tier' brands.

I know this is a very fawning comment and it is entirely possible it's because you wrote about Queen yesterday, but I don't think so ... because the best people in planning are those who are part of society, rather than simply observers of it and you're most definitely that.

Thank you for writing this, it's that good.

Where is my previous comment?

I was so nice about you and this post and it's nowhere. What's going on???

Oh I could have sworn I published it, bloody typepad is getting more and more unreliable every week
Anyway, call accidental revenge for squashing the judging deadline

I suspect you're a better man than most of us.

Better post rationaliser maybe.
Maybe not, that's pretty much like saying you're a better planner isn't it?

Yeah ... blame typepad, it can't answer back and stand up for itself.
