Encouragement

Tony Benn used to say that the role of senior people in society was to encourage. I don’t think there as a truer phrase, but I think it’s true for all of us.

A kind word here, a compliment there, I think it all goes some way to telling somebody that, whatever effort they just made, it is appreciated.

That’s all. I’ve got no parable behind this, it’s just a mantra I try to live by.

Author: Stroke Survivor UK

For many years I designed and developed IT systems for big banks. I had a stroke a couple of years ago, aged pre-50! I have returned to developing things from home, not quite at the levels I used to, but saves on the travel! My time is also filled with some voluntary work for the UK charities Age UK and the [UK] Stroke Association. Incidentally, I created this account with the alias "sca11y" but have since aligned it with the name of my blog.
