Bela’s IDEAS: March 12, 2024

March 12, 2024 issue of Bela’s IDEAS, featuring Bela admitting to really hating Murphy, plus bits of women in learning and development, dismantling white supremacy, and why pronouns matter.

I Hate Murphy

I don't know what law school Murphy went to, but someone needs to revoke his license to practice law. Seriously.

If you're unfamiliar with "Murphy's Law", it's a saying that means: anything that can go wrong will go wrong, and at the worst possible time. Lately, you could consider me... guilty? Or would it be falsely charged?

Maybe I should name my inner critic Murphy. I could feel some sweet release when he tries to shame me... right before I proverbially punch him in his throat.

Speaking of shame, I hope you'll join me later this month for my next conference presentation. No, I'm not shaming you - the talk is about shame. 😂

I FINALLY feel human again after COVID, and coworking sessions are back on! We're working Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Will I see you there?
