The Little Things Matter

I realised yesterday I had, repeatedly and with the same organisation, been falling into the role of “Marshmallow Rescuer”. Worse than jumping in to solve someone else’s problem (when they are the best person to know what a solution would like like, when they are absolutely able ask for the support they need, when they […]
