Good enough is never good enough, right?

goals success leadership CSC Blogs

Good enough is never good enough, right? Have you ever drawn, rehearsed, practiced, written something 1,000 times, starting over again and again, wanting something so much that everything you do becomes “never good enough?” Never good enough is a philosophy that pushes us toward choosing the riskier more original idea, right? It also encourages us to never stop learning. […]

“When I was just a little girl, I asked my mother what will I be? Will I be handsome? Will I be rich? Here’s what she said to me? Que Sera Sera. Whatever will be, will be. The future’s not ours to see, Que Sera Sera.” ~ Jay Livingston and Ray Evans When I was […]

spatial future CSC Blogs

The Future of Spatial Science was something I always thought others would be telling me. I remember sitting in the Association of Geographic Information (AGI) conference about 8 years ago, learning about how spatial was impacting the world. I saw some of the first versions of augmented reality on the big screen. As we were “walked” through an outdoors environment, the room […]

Have you ever been asked, “How do you keep on top of things?” How do we all manage the different tasks and feelings we experience on a daily basis? How do we keep them in check and stop them from spilling over? My short answer is that when you know yourself at your best and your worst, you know what to watch for and how to keep yourself in […]

In the movie Toy Story, when Buzz Lightyear joins the team, the whole world of the toys is thrown into turmoil and change. They must find a new balance and way of working, even though their world is ultimately expanded and changed for the better. In this blog, I want to look at some of the remote teams I have worked […]

Big data CSC Blogs

In this digital revolution, the world is changing rapidly. Without us even noticing it, our ways of working have changed, and new words have become part of our vocabulary. Some of my favorites are below. When reading, ask yourself: “Would I have said this 10 years ago?” “Forgot my tablet.” The first iPad was released in 2010, and the first Microsoft […]

Information overload in a virtually augmented world

information overload CSC Blogs

#BrainOverload #InformationOverload #DigitalDisruption #DigitalMind #DigitalRehab Are these hashtags good or bad? It depends on which storyline you choose. At CSC TechCom earlier this year, I tweeted a few times about #InformationOverload. Why?

About a month ago I finished an amazing book called “Switched On” by John Elder Robison. It tells the true story of how he underwent a “brain change” and emotional awakening, using an emerging science called brain stimulation. To me the book highlights the changes occurring in our world and how we need an even greater awareness of human emotions as […]

Over the years, I have interacted many times with Human Resources, People and Culture or whatever the new “in” term is for the extremely talented people who manage the work lives of employees and leaders every day. I’m talking about the ones who liaise and negotiate between managers and workers with grace and poise, able to understand the complexities […]
