The Publisher

I saw the Operations Director of Everards Brewery speak last week. They have a fascinating outlook on the pub business, and it goes back to yesterday’s comments about control. Most brewers try to control their pubs, but Everards allow them to write their own story. As Simon Godson put it: The pubs tell the story, the Business…

Set The Intent

When we want something we often try to make it happen. But that’s not how the universe works. We expend large amounts of energy trying to control everything around us, so we end up tired and still haven’t made it happen. The solution is to go with the flow… to set our intent, and then let it…

Re-Birth

Sometimes our life overwhelms us. We wonder how we can start again, be re-born, make a fresh beginning… And it’s quite simple. We can make that commitment at any time of any day. We don’t need to wait. We imagine that the movie of our “life so far” has just finished and the credits begin…

Get Lost

It was my ‘spirit day’ on Friday, the day where I catch up with who I am and what the hell I’m doing on this big rock in space. I didn’t get lost, but I did go for a long walk in the countryside to take in nature, the weather, and some deep chat with…

All These Roads

I always have a little smile when anyone complains about the price of their road tax. I pay £17 per month for mine. And I get to use all these roads! Just look at them. All over the country. Big roads, small roads, fast roads, slow roads, bridges, roundabouts, traffic lights… I get to use all of…

Why So Big?

I was asked this morning—after talking 80/20 with a chap  for a while—why Richard Koch’s book “The 80/20 Principle” is such a thick book. Surely that goes against his own teachings. And I had to agree! That’s why when I wrote my book on the subject – The 80/20 Blueprint – I made sure it was very concise and…

False Average

Yesterday I talked about occasions where a simple solution will suffice. But it’s not always the case. I mentioned the problem of false averages a little while ago and I was given a superb example the other day… I attended a networking meeting, and they had a segment on their ideal avatar to invite along. They…

Travel and Freedom

I’ve seen reports recently that say Baby Boomers worked all their life and waited until retirement to travel. Generation X are balancing their work and life to get more freedom and travel. While Millennials are choosing freedom and travel before they even go into the world of work. So what causes this difference? All sorts…

Carrying Tension

Here’s something I do often… and it’s probably my yoga practice—four months and counting—that has helped me to become aware of this… As I’m walking along, I notice the tension I’m carrying in my hands, my arms, my shoulders, my neck, my core, and I consciously relax them all. Become aware. Are you carrying unnecessary…
