One of the most impressive people I’ve never met.

Is Baroness Sayeeda Warsi.

(I saw her.

But didn’t meet her.

At Ammar Mirza’s Asian Business Connexions Dinner.

Two weeks ago).

Baroness Sayeeda Warsi.

In amongst a whole host of confident and memorable narrative.

Sayeeda spoke about how she made key decisions.

Referring directly to when she resigned from Cameron’s government.

In 2014.

Because she wouldn’t support the Government’s policy on the escalation of violence in the Israel–Gaza conflict.

Two Questions.


Whatever your politics.

I like the two questions that Sayeeda asked herself.

To come to a decision about her resignation.

She asked:

Am I saying what I believe?
Am I doing what I say?

Both are great questions independently.

But side by side – they’re even better.

One follows the other.


Next time I have to make big decisions.

I’ll ask myself these questions.

And maybe you should too.
