Merry Christmas Everyone
December 25, 2009 1 Comment
Another year is coming to a close and it has been nothing short of eventful. There has been the end of one direction of research, the beginning of my existence as a service provider at the EBI and several new strands of research. Not to speak of moving house and a number of other things.
I have learned a lot about people this year and sometimes more than I wanted to. In particular, I have learned that “trust” is the only way that allows anyone to manage anything – both in business and academia. Destroying trust between people or people and organisations, causes untold harm in the medium and long term, no matter how expedient it seems at the time.
However, it is christmas now and the world rests for a few days. Time to reflect on 2009 and to look forward to the new year with all its possibilities and challenges.
A very merry christmas and a happy new year to you all, thank you for reading the blog and see you in 2010!
