These were wise words of Oscar Wilde back in the late nineteenth century. However, even in our digital era, they still are very much up-to-date. This same spirit underpins our new Objectway blog. Welcome!
We would love you to share your viewpoints, insights, concerns, practices, mindsets and snippets on our mutual business… as it will enlighten, inspire and trigger some else in our community.

And by the way, Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality. Something every one of us aspires to, no?
