Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Cojones and Class
The CEO of one of Harvard's largest teaching hospitals, Beth Israel, has a blog. Somewhat unimaginatively titled "Running a Hospital", it has nonetheless become a must read for me every day.

His post today, from another, somewhat horrified CEO in banking, asks the obvious question - "why are you doing this, whatever must people be thinking / saying about you in the halls and boardroom?" His answer, as with most of his posts, is frank, disarming, and is the most polite "lighten the f___k up and mind your own damn business" put down I have ever read.

We should all be lucky enough to work for someone like this, and I take heart from the fact that it gives me almost daily reinforcement that I'm in the right field of work for the right reasons.

Welcome to my blog roll Paul Levy.

    Broadsheet -

    1. There's a problem with your link. It's doubled, so you have to manually delete the second link before it'll work.

    2. After getting to the blog and reading it, I was very impressed. I wish more employers had that viewpoint.

    Sorry, but it should say "Cojones and class". Cojones are testicles, cajones are boxes or drawers. Besides that, I agree with your opinion of Mr Levy.
