I'm looking forward to doing some online chats about Shackleton and leadership soon but I have a lot going on these days - a major dental project, moving, and a cataclysmic encounter with a deer.

Thank heavens for all those wonderful Shackleton quotes to turn to in challenging times...

"Difficulties are just things to overcome."

"A man must set himself a new mark, directly the old one goes to ground."

"Never give up hope. The worst can always be gotten over."

I hope 2022 is off to a great start for you! Watch out for deer!
