When I first began working on changing my life almost a decade ago, I fantasised about making a splash. Something that would signify I was different like: Quitting my job Taking time off from work to travel Cutting all my hair off Switching careers Starting over in a new city I'd daydream about the kind … Continue reading A drip and a splash
Where to start?
There's often a big difference between what you need to do and what you want to do. Perhaps you find yourself writing a long to do list of all the the things to get done, a combination of needs and wants. Whilst working through this list you find yourself doing doing things and crossing them … Continue reading Where to start?
Worth looking back on
This morning, for the first time in perhaps close to a year, I read Seths Blog. I discovered that he had a new book coming out soon called The Song of Significance. I was reminded of what it was like when I first read Seths blog over a decade ago. I then got thinking about … Continue reading Worth looking back on
Turning things around
If things aren't going well, do you know how to make them better? The ability to turn things around is a great skill, I'd even go so far as to call it life-saving. But, if your life constantly needs to be turned around and made better, then perhaps you need to focus on what's causing … Continue reading Turning things around
Something worth losing
Sometimes, there's actually a benefit to things not working out the way we wanted. It could be a job, an apartment, plans made or a whole other variety of things. When we feel like we've lost out it's easy for the default to be sadness and in some circumstances a gentle mourning. But what if … Continue reading Something worth losing
What’s the use in rigid plans?

The specific things I thought I'd be doing haven't happened in the ways I thought they would. They've happened in new ways. If I'd kept my plans rigid, I'd have probably missed out on new opportunities … Continue reading What’s the use in rigid plans?
A love that is liberating
Today I'm inspired my past self who had the ability to write poetry with great ease, with little consideration for whether or not it was good. It's valentines day and I spent it listening to music I love, listening to a podcast that made me laugh and eating a meal I like. Below are a … Continue reading A love that is liberating
Have you got 2 minutes?
A few years back I was sent a book (amongst other things) as my reward for donating money to someone wanting to start a business. The book was called Two Minute Mornings by Neil Pasricha. The concept of the book is pretty simple, each page is the same. You write the date, something you'll let … Continue reading Have you got 2 minutes?
What’s the real problem?
There's a saying that goes something like, if what you're doing isn't working, do something else. It's simple enough and yet we end up making it so much more complicated. Sometimes we even complain about certain aspects our life as though we don't have the power and control to change things. And sure, we can't … Continue reading What’s the real problem?
A new years resolution by any other name
When it comes to new years resolutions the way I see it is that it's simply a record of what you want for yourself. The term new years resolutions has gotten a bad rap over the years. It's associated with a sort of temporary promise that you make at the start of the year and … Continue reading A new years resolution by any other name
