We all need to do it at some point! There are good jobs and bad jobs. You know the kind of shitty jobs, that no one else wants to do or just can’t be arsed to do; and they land at your feet with the immortal words ‘go on, take one for the team’. And ...

No more excuses

On holiday recently, I had time to reflect a bit, as we do; take stock and look at what I was doing and where I was going. What was influencing me in certain ways with my professional and personal life and just what was, my own contribution to 'getting to where I wanted to be'? ...

Cosmetic Continuity

The opening lines from The Isley Brothers 1969 Tamla Motown song, Behind a Painted smile, echo the sentiments of many I imagine. Some people wear a painted smile to hide their own emotions and feelings; for the sake of either being 'decent' or not wanting to give the 'game' away.

Dear reader, I’m a traditional kind of guy. I would describe myself as a bit of a romantic fool. It’s in my genes. I like old black & white movies. I like little hand written notes; leaving notes and receiving them. All this, even though I consider my handwriting to be average if not scruffy! ...

Don’t let someone burst your bubble

Life is a bit like the soap bubble. We have great hopes and visions of what will be when we shake our bottle and get ready to blow. We have an idea of where we want to go with the bubbles; we have checked the direction. We undertake a bit of a  'mini-risk assessment' but without the need ...
