No Tall Poppies

No Tall Poppies is a network for support, nurturing. In a field of poppies, some heads are slightly bowed, some faces lifting to the sun.

How was it for you?

It seems fair that I start discussion here, since I brought this subject up with Lesley.  The reason I brought it up is that I am going to a parenting bloggers conference in Sydney next March, and have seen many friends and fellow-bloggers find corporate sponsorship to pay their way to this conference. I have no issue with that, as I realise that many of us parents are blogging for many reasons - to vent, to share our experiences, to laugh, to cry, and to share product knowledge as well.For me,…See More

Free Will, HEE or NLP?

 It is very easy when you decide to "fix" some things in your life to try and fix everything at once - with the result that usually very little really gets fixed, permanently. Presently I have two fixes in mind: to reduce my waistline to 26" by 26 March 2012 and to get my paper flow under control.Target 26 came first. It started after I attended an introductory NLP workshop and was reminded of some of the awesome things that I had achieved in the past, simply by setting my mind to the tasks at…See More

Three Words -Touch, Quiet, Gift

This is a new blog post at Stories My Nana Tells.The idea of setting three words to help guide you and keep you on track in achieving your goals comes from Chris Brogan, who outlines in his blog how you can cut through all the mission statements, visions and strategic planning by selecting three essential words.Quoting from his own article at the beginning of 2009, he wrote:  “If you’re not familiar with the exercise, the object is to come up with three words that you use as compass points for…See More

Welcome to No Tall Poppies

No Tall Poppies has been created to provide an opportunity for nurturing; support; achievement without glory; on-going renewal; joy and sharing.

Have a closer look at a field of poppies. We love the way they grow in a group. Some heads slightly bowed; some faces lifting to the sun – and, just occasionally one or two taller poppies.

We think our “No Tall Poppies” will be 25+, working full time or permanent part time after an earlier career, multi-skilled and proven performers in their own style. You may have had a late life career change or overcome great adversity to start again.

Unbeknowns to you, you are probably better known than you think or expect – for all the right reasons. You might even receive an invitation to become a “No Tall Poppy” by nomination from a friend or colleague who believes you should be acknowledged quietly (and not so quietly) by your peers.
********************************************************
Things you can do at No Tall Poppies:

  1. Spiff Up Your Profile. Tell us about your pets, your hobbies, start a blog, add widgets and have fun customising your page.
  2. Post Your Photos. Show off your pets, your travels and let us enjoy your company.
  3. Post Your Videos. When you have uploaded your videos to YouTube or elsewhere, post a link, so we can enjoy them with you. Sport, holidays, music - whatever takes your fancy (within reason, of course :-) )
  4. Join A Discussion Group. Let's make our groups very interactive and fun. If you have a pet passion, start your own group. There is lots of space here - and you can share your discussions on Twitter and Facebook for more interactivity.
  5. Techie Tips. If you any questions about how to do something here, have a look at our Techie Tips and if you need any more help, please ask! Just add a question and we will answer it for you.

My blog post A Mother's Prayer was written some time ago and today I have been cleaning up my office. 

Amongst some old papers, I found some lovely photos of my daughter, Annette, and decided to share them with you. Like all children, she changed to look at and yet remained the same through the years.…
