The Long Game – How to be a long-term thinker in a short-term world, by Dorie Clark
One of the minor ‘positives’ to come from the death of Queen Elizabeth II on the 8 th September 2022 was the cancellation of the train drivers strike – which meant I was able to travel down from Huntingdon and meet up at Ozone Café in London for a very tasty brunch (with new big brekkie on the menu), and lively conversation with a group of fellow Kiwis. Being in London at this time of national/worldwide grieving was odd and a fair bit of time was given over to our memories of growing up in NZ and appreciation of the life and legacy of our Queen.
That aside, we did put some time to discussing the book. The title and back cover description had me – the ‘long’ game is something I know I’m not good at (much more of a fire-fighter/deal with the ‘now’ kind of girl); but it is an area I need to improve on as Director of a manufacturing business.
