Strive for continuous improvement instead of perfection - Kim Collins
I met with a client this week, and we were reviewing the commitments that she had made during our previous session. On one of her commitments, she sheepishly admitted that she had only kept her commitment about 50% of the time. I congratulated her on her progress, and simply said “Strive for progress, not perfection".
Proverbs are a big part of West Indian and African culture and tradition, some are funny, others unforgettable and some may not make immediate sense! The common thread they all have, is that they get you to think, serving as a vital source of wisdom and therefore assisting in the development of everyday life skills and the not so common, 'common sense'!!
Lorlett Hudson, founder of One Hand Can't Clap had been coaching, running mentoring programmes and has created the annual event Common Ties and it's in its tenth year! Find out about the power of proverbs and what Lorlett created out of them in this RockStone ChitChat!

Olivette Otele has become the UK’s first black female history professor.
Otele is a historian at Bath Spa University.
She tweeted: “Big news: my people, Bath Spa University has awarded me a professorship and a chair in history. May this open the door to many very hard working women, especially women of colour, even and specifically black women, in academia in general and in history in particular. In strength, peace and love my people.”
MAKING HISTORY can often come with a lot of pressure. But for Samantha Tross - the first black female orthopaedic surgeon in the UK - she takes it all in her stride.
“While I’m proud of being the first black female orthopedic surgeon in the UK, I know it comes with a lot of responsibility because how I conduct myself will have an impact on those coming after me,” she says. “It’s my job to do my best so that those coming after to me have it easier.”
