I never thought I’d use Twitter for example, but now am a quite active user – even if I tend to use it as an information source, rather than being a great tweeter myself.
And I used to think I’d never do anything about my nose. It was only slightly off-centre after all.
But then I didn’t know about research which suggests people find symmetrical faces more attractive (an evolutionary preference for healthy genes).
This isn’t about attracting a mate you’ll understand – I’ve been happily married for nearly 15 years.
But I do a lot of training and presentations these days. And whether it’s a one-on-one, or a session with a couple of thousand people that I’ve done a few times too, I want to present myself at my best – and to be perceived at my best as well.
So I’ve just been in for a rhinoplasty operation. Apologies if I’m a bit snuffly if we talk at all by phone.
