‘Daily Thoughts’ is in pause mode for a few days and resumes on Monday 4th of April.

Create your own collection ideas. The best way compile them for your team is to search within the search box or via the ‘Other articles by categories’ in the site.
These Thoughts are written for that purpose, not to ‘agree/disagree, but stimulate fresh thinking coming from…you.
Experiment with this, create your own collection. Pass it on.
