On 12 January, winter storms across the US resulted in over 2,000 flights canceled and nearly 6,000 delayed. I was there.
Massive thanks for the fantastic responses to last month's newsletter! Your warm feedback caught me off guard, and I'm genuinely grateful for all your emails and comments. Your enthusiasm fuels the creative journey. Now, let's dive in…
Quote of the Day
“I'm not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours." Often attributed to Lewis Carroll, author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, it reminds us that everyone's perception of reality is different. And everyone's journey is unique.
Demystifying the Boardroom
Why do boards exist? What are pathways to becoming a board director? How many boards is too many? And what do boards do anyway? Join me for this brisk dialog with Crispina Robert and Adrian Tan on Channel News Asia's Work It podcast where we discussed these topics and more. Go on, take a peek behind the boardroom doors.
Thanks for the Love!
This post I shared on LinkedIn generated a lot of interest. I guess you could say it's my origin story...
Fantasy vs. Reality
2024 is being called out as THE election year with around 49% of the global population heading to the polls in at least 64 countries. The rise of generative AI means voters will be increasingly challenged to discern fake from fact. Can you tell the difference between a real image and an AI-generated image? I scored 60%. It was tough! Test yourself here.
An Unplanned Adventure
An Arctic blast has been sweeping across the United States, with temperatures plummeting to as low as minus 40 degrees (at that level Fahrenheit and Celsius are identical). The National Weather Service warned that "travel could be nearly impossible". Relive my epic adventure and what went down in my three-part diary of a stranded traveller.
Can You Relate?
Finally, an oldie but goodie that comes back to the notion of different realities. Have a laugh at the universal comedy of communication!
That's it for this month! Can't wait to catch up again next month with more insights, stories, and laughs.
