Rivers of sh*t… or deep in the doodos!

Never say Life doesn’t have a sense of irony and timing.  This morning I had ear-marked as my day to make a ‘new start’; the day I was going to knuckle down and begin to get the business ramped-up after a necessarily quiet year last year (regular reasons will be familiar with the back story […][...] read more » Rivers of sh*t… or deep in the doodos!

Your brain really does switch off when given ‘expert’ advice!

We are so often exhorted to think “outside the box” and there are all manner of clever gurus like Mr de Bono who offer us tools to help us do so.
