So, your name can influence you in ways you didn’t realise.
In a line that even comedy writers would avoid, this came to light after someone came across…
“a paper on incontinence in the British Journal of Urology which was written by J W Splatt and D Weedon”
And so Nominative Determinism was coined.
I myself have encountered a couple of examples. Although the only person I have ever met with the surname Sell, was a total techie. He built data centres for a living when I knew him.
Still, if this theory holds true (& I do feel it has merit) then how about using it to create project names?
As you may know from my blog in March earlier this year, I love the idea of naming projects.
So now you have permission to go out and think of one that’ll signpost true success.
I can see now all those people trying to out-sell Apple with project names around Adam. Afterall, he was the first to eat an apple, right. Ahem.
I’m sure you can do better in your real world. Go on.
