Mistakes will be tolerated…

Those of you who are into tech will know that Amazon, having done amazingly well at with their Kindle line of eReaders, and succeeded too with their Kindle Fire tablet range, but completely tanked when it came to launching a mobile phone.  It had all sorts of clever tech but no one needed what it […][...] read more » Mistakes will be tolerated…

Big Brother and why we should care

Post the Snowden affair we discovered just how much our governments were spying on us.  We have heard about the iCloud leaks and various big companies who have had their databases hacked, so security is very much in the news.  People are talking about using Tor to surf the net, and phones are being sold […][...] read more » Big Brother and why we should care

Change lessons from the campaign to prevent FGM

I listened to an interesting article today talking about the British government’s decision to spend £35m to help counter Female Genital Mutilation.  They were interviewing Lynne Featherstone, Minister for International Development and a woman called Nimco Ali who suffered this. They were talking about a campaign that is attempting to change the culture in Africa, […][...] read more » Change lessons from the campaign to prevent FGM

Making Change Permanent

This another of our occasional guest blogs.  This one is penned by my brother Quentin, a 7th dan black belt in Aikido.  He is addressing one of the key questions in Change.

The comeback Quins

Regular readers will know I am a keen rugby fan.  My team, the Harlequins, have had a difficult season.  Two years ago, they won the Aviva Premiership for the first time, last year they needed to prove it wasn’t a one-off and that they were genuine top four contenders.  They made it to the semi-finals […][...] read more » The comeback Quins

I saw these posted today and obviously they have all sorts of major religious and philosophical importance, but if you are able to set that aside and just think about them, they contain not just wisdom but some pretty practical tools for Change.  They are worth dusting off and and applying. 1) THE GREAT LAW […][...] read more » The 12 Laws of Karma

Freedom from the insidious power of “I have to…”

I had a strange awakening this morning.  My plans for the day were already vague as the person I was seeing had lost the use of their car and this freed up my day.  Like everyone I have a list of useful chores I could ‘tick off’ if I used this time, and I‘d feel […][...] read more » Freedom from the insidious power of “I have to…”

Plan B

All the management books, coaches and gurus seem to be telling us that we have to make plans…. Hell, this morning I was in just a session with my clients!  “How are you going to do that?”  “What will you do if it fails?”  “Who could help you?”  “What’s the alternative?”  So I guess I […][...] read more » Plan B

Bog hopping

I was out walking today and had to come back via an unplanned route; a route that had I had any choice in, I’d have avoided as I suspected it would be a smidge muddy.  However, there I was, confronted with the reality of the situation and initially, although the path was 3” or more […][...] read more » Bog hopping

The Physics of the Quest.. a recipe for transformation

“…I’ve come to believe that there exists in the universe something I call “The Physics of The Quest” – a force of nature governed by laws as real as the laws gravity or momentum. And the rule of Quest Physics maybe goes like this: “If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and […][...] read more » The Physics of the Quest.. a recipe for transformation
