I've seen a host of perfectly carved pumpkins appear recently on social media, and I'm happy for these people, I truly am. They have creativity, patience and time to spare. I suspect what they didn't have...
was a bouncy overexcited 5-year-old wielding a Sharpie and dinner knife in front of them, declaring that the pumpkin only needs half its head, otherwise we wouldn't be able to see the brains falling out!!
My point? In Learning and Development, as in business, we sometimes hold off rolling something out because we want things to be perfect, when in fact things move so quickly that by the time you’re happy with it, it’s probably been superseded by something else anyway! Plus, if I had spent my time, probably alone, creating a ‘masterpiece’, I wouldn't have had the joy of seeing my Son create his own memories of making (destroying) his own pumpkin lantern with me.
So, whether your switching off the lights and pretending you're not at home, or out and about with the Zombies, Witches and Batman, (there's always one dressed as Batman!) have a ‘perfect’ Halloween.
Learning doesn't just happen in a training session. It happens all around us! Follow my ramblings and continue to see the world in a different light!
