Leadership is long term, not just short term. Recognition is long term, not just for xmas!!

I hope you have a lovely time over the holidays and see you all in the new year.

P.S – On a side note I wanted to add to this post of Thoughts on Leadership to let you know something my son is doing for Cancer Research in 2010.  Below is a short summary of what he is doing and why:

I’m running 10k everyday through 2010 in aid Cancer Research.

I’ve been thinking for some time of doing something worthwhile, not easy, to look back on with pride, generate money for Charity, different and “challenging” to really push me. Having been made redundant twice over 2008 & 2009, these circumstances had an impact on me, I’d put on weight during the pressure & stresses of trying to support a young family whilst getting back on the work ladder – so I wanted to change that, making & presenting a new me by doing something: I came up with doing a 10k Run everyday through 2010.

I’m doing the challenge in aid of “Cancer Research UK” which is close to my heart having lost a grand father & grand mother to cancer, friends to breast cancer & I have friends who have lost parents to cancer. The challenge is not as easy as it might sound and I know there’ll be hard times ahead, but thats the point – goals, challenges, targets are stretching our usual boundaries.  This is not an ordinary challenge and I’ve enjoyed the people, doors and obstacles it’s brought so far; it’ll draw the best out of me and the people who have already got involved; things that are easy rarely worth having. Helping this challenge is as easy as spreading the word & sharing the idea; I’d also be interested in hearing your thoughts.

I’m logging the journey of this challenge at & you can learn more about whats happening behind the challenge at

I wish you luck on your challenges in 2010, be well Tim.
