about this site and its creator

Born in 1978, Cheltenham, my name is Robert Elbourn, and I am an accredited coach. Working mainly with IT and software delivery teams as an "agile" or lean coach and consultant. I love my job. This site brings a couple of things that I love together, which is the spoken language and software development (to keep my hand in). Incidentally I have a blog here that I occasionally contribute to.

I have a list of things I like and don't like, in my head, I can never think of them all at once so I am adding it here. It will grow...

Things I likeThings I don't like
The smell of a freshly purchased bag of coffee beansThe smell of peanuts
Humblebragging When people litter
To have all the information before doing somethingMultitasking
When you have continuous flow in trafficWhen someone causes you to break sharply
When someone helps a strangerBroken umbrellas littered around

Quotes are a great common medium, where we can express what we are really feeling or thinking in a powerful way. They frequently behave as containerships for unexpressed thoughts held in our limbic system but somehow are not forthcoming and hence repressed.

I also love the humourous quotes and the absurd, those that you wouldn't necessarily expect so watch out for those ones.... This site will grow.

my current favourite quote is

Dr Henry Link says We generate fears while we sit. We overcome them by action.
