Picked this up from Kahless as today has been a bit trying, what with trip to the launderette with king-size double duvet, on account of cat's over-enthusiastic regurgitation, and not finding any Mother's Day cards that wouldn't make it sound like I'm taking the piss. So anyway,
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
The book, which belongs to Mr. Signs, is called Extreme Project Management - that's in bold red. Underneath in orange it says "Using Leadership, Principles, and Tools to Deliver Value in the Face of Volatility." Their idea to put all those capitals and that last comma before the and - just saying. The three sentences after the fifth on page 123 read:
Principle is one of the most effective communication tools you have: you get what you want by showing someone how what you want can get them what they want. It means you have to get out of your own way and see the situation from the perspective of the other person. And how do you do that?
Ok, that's three sentences. Sorry, but if I type in the answer I'll be breaking the rules. Word in your ear though, it has something to do with talking to the other person and listening. Bless me, what do they teach them in these schools? What happened to the good old-fashioned School of Because I Say So or You're Fired?
But I know nothing about such things (and if I do I'm keeping my mouth shut). I am Elasticus Artisticus, Poet, Poseur, Jaques of few trades and Mistress of One - and Mr. S is Patron of the Arts.
