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

Formerly, designed and developed IT systems for banks, but had a stroke in 2016, aged pre-50! I have returned to developing from home, but some of my time is also spent volunteering with the UK charities Age UK (www.ageuk.org.uk) and the [UK] Stroke Association (www.stroke.org.uk).
