Brexit: a step into the unknown

I voted against this as did most of the people I talked to about it. It always felt less risky and I instinctively felt I’d rather be in the club and influencing it than outside and hoping. However, as nation, that is not the choice we made. Whether it was smart, and whether those who […][...] read more » Brexit: a step into the unknown

Learning from failure

I set out last week to walk the Ridgeway, it starts in Avebury and I was walking to Whipsnade, about 100 miles.  It wasn’t my first long distance path, but it was the first time I was doing it camping and carrying a big pack.  Despite some careful thought and planning I still ended up […][...] read more » Learning from failure

Little by little

It is usually said that leaders need to focus on big picture stuff, but this forgets that even grand plans have to be implemented one step at a time, one day at a time.  It is the same with personal change, you only lose weight ounce by ounce, you can’t jump to pounds or stones.  […][...] read more » Little by little

Adapt & endure

I was walking the other week, and came across this ancient yew forest.  Some of the trees were thought to be 2,000 years old and this one was certainly ancient.  One of the things I noticed was that these ancient trees have cracked, broken and twisted over the years, but the fact is they keep […][...] read more » Adapt & endure

Transformative thinking – 4

Everybody thinks they are unique and alone Clearly in one sense this must be true, but we have only our own view of the world and we are the sole inhabitant of our little cerebral desert island.  We therefore tend at times to feel our problems are similarly unique and compellingly important and of course, […][...] read more » Transformative thinking – 4

Transformative thinking –3

Your happiness depends on your thoughts! We don’t necessarily have the power to change our circumstances (at least not in the short term) but we always have a choice about how we feel about them.  As something of perfectionist, I have a little voice that tells me “Things should be like this..” and if they […][...] read more » Transformative thinking –3

Transformative thinking – 2

Things change.. whether we like it or not! We value constancy and and loyalty but how we feel changes over time, people around us change, circumstances change too.  All this means we dwell in a state of constant flux, the fact that things might seem the same is, in truth, an illusion.  Wisdom comes from […][...] read more » Transformative thinking – 2

Transformative thinking – 1

Everything that happens is a chance to grow and change It is an oft quoted truism to say “Insanity to keep doing the same thing and expecting different results”, and yet most of us do this, both in business and in our personal lives.  We excuse it as “being different this time..” or “standard operating […][...] read more » Transformative thinking – 1

A different point-of-view

I was out walking last weekend, and our walk brought us back to town from a direction that was new to me.  I really enjoyed seeing it from a whole new perspective, laid out before me, looking at it from the opposite hill. I was then struck by the idea that here I was stimulated […][...] read more » A different point-of-view

Fitness trackers and positive, personal change

Regular readers will know that I have been experimenting with the use of a fitness tracker for the last few months, and finding them quite useful.  I came across an article which looks at why they work, or rather what they need from us in order to work.  The thing is that of themselves, they […][...] read more » Fitness trackers and positive, personal change
