A HELL OF A MONTH!

June has been a storm of emotions and states. Joy, Excitement, Insecurity, Fear, Worry, Extreme Fatigue, Relief, Satisfaction, Optimism, Enthusiasm, Pride, Frustration, Discomfort, Delight, Shock, Fun. Each of my many personal and professional projects was incredibly exciting on its own. Yet, as things piled up, they lost their initial flavor, becoming a long list of “must-do” items that filled my days. This flavor turned bitter when, on top of an already weak shoulder, I had a small hiking accident and, ...

EXPERTISE.

When I was first approached by a company to share my expertise in strategic, organizational, and supply chain matters, self-doubt kicked in strongly. Here I was, with over two decades of experience as a Supply Chain leader, managing multimillion-dollar projects for multi-billion dollar businesses, and yet, I questioned my ability to add unique value.

FANCY A RIDE ON THE SILVER STAR?

End of October 2022. Family day at Europapark, a well-know amusement park in Germany. The teens : "We are so exciting Mum, we will ride the Silver Star! Last time we came here we were 5 and 8 and we were too young to go there! That's so cool. The 4 of us on the Silver Star!" Me: "Yeah, that's very cool. I am very excited too". Joke. With a height of 73 meters and a drop of 67 meters, The Silver Star ...

OPEN THE BOOK

Few weeks ago I met a guy.I must admit I had many biases before even engaging in a discussion with him!In fact, one mutual relationship told me "why do you even bother talking to him? I experienced working with him few years ago, and honestly, it did not go well". Since we were participating to the same workshop, avoiding him was not really an acceptable strategy.And actually what I was told piqued my curiosity. So this guy and I ended up chatting ...

FEAR OF FALLING.

When I started climbing, I was terrified risking a fall. I saw all those climbers at the gym taking incredible falls, and getting back on the wall. Crazy stunts ! I started freezing when I was at the edge and always asked my belayer to hold me. I would not risk a fall. And it did not prevent me from progressing. But I knew this was a critical point for me to overcome. And that it would impact my life ...

Ben pourquoi tu n’es pas venue à la plage?

Côté pile, une femme débordante d'énergie, qui est souvent partante pour des tonnes d'activités, et qui se donne à fond.Côté face, une ermite qui se replie dans son cocon, en maîtrise totale du mode loque. Ceux qui ont fait l'expérience du côté face se comptent sur les doigts des 2 mains grand max. Normal ...

THE RULE IS WHAT MAKES YOU BOTH HAPPY.

Crozon Peninsula. Brittany. July 2022. Family holidays on the sea side. Nice weather, rest on the beach, gatherings with friends and hikes here and there (obviously!). As usual, Mayol and Jeanne, respectively 15 and 13 are leading the way and we are hardly following, not even trying to match their pace. From time to time, they are waiting for us. When they are thirsty, when we are at crossroads or when they have a question. “Mum, I’d like to sell ...

Stop & Think OR Move & Do.

She tells me how much her thinking is interfering with her doing. Every time she takes a decision, though she is acting to transform this decision into something real, her mind keeps whispering "Are you sure you took the RIGHT decision?", "What if you are stuck?","Did you consider all the parameters?". She starts doubting, to a point the impact of her actions is diminished and her thinking is not effective. When I am on the wall, climbing, when my all-or-nothing ...

LA PETITE BALEINE.

Il y a 8 ans, Jeanne m’a offert un collier pour la fête des mères. Un cordon anthracite au bout duquel trônait un pendentif en pierre grise qu’elle avait façonné avec ses petites mains à l’école maternelle. Une baleine. J’ai tout de suite adoré ce sautoir. A force d’être porté, le cordon s’est élimé et a fini par casser. J’ai rangé le pendentif dans une petite pochette en tulle, me promettant d’aller rapidement à la mercerie changer le cordon. Le ...

NO.

Nice One. New Opportunity. No Offense. NO is not a dirty word. NO is an acceptable answer to any request you might receive or you might formulate. And NO does not require any justification, any “Because” attached to it. NO is a sentence on it’s own. Next time someone says NO to what you offer, don’t take it personally. Celebrate, and move on. There are plenty of doors to open and there are plenty of people to play with. Keep ...

WHAT ARE YOU WAKING UP FOR?

MY 4-SEASON WARDROBE.

Last summer, for the first time since I left my parents' house, I managed to put all my clothes in a single wardrobe. And all my shoes in the hall cupboard. Without buying extra furniture, and without taking over any of my family member's space. Don't laugh, this is a massive achievement. For decades, despite the very decent size of my dressing room, I have been packing my light dresses and sleeveless t-shirts in carton boxes during the cold season, ...
