On Feeling Stuck…

On Feeling Stuck…

So… you’re stuck. Feeling stuck is normal. Feeling stuck is part of the human condition. Sometimes, the changes we want to make in life seem so close as to be nearly within our grasp and yet still too far away to get the traction we need to make them. There’s nothing wrong in feeling stuck.  The(…)

It’s never too late to change.

If you ever find yourself thinking that you are too old, or too stuck in your ways, or too entrenched in your career to change, please stop. Stop for a moment and consider all the people around you who seem to be able to take change in their stride, who make things look easy. Don’t(…)

How can a quiet person change the world?

How can a quiet person change the world?

I’ve been thinking hard about the world and what a quiet person can do to try and change things for the better. It’s about shining light into dark corners, I think.

Your Forgotten Network

Your Forgotten Network

In the quest for new clients, new business and new collaborators our network evolves and time marches on.  But what of all the old contacts that get left behind in our wake? How many of them are sitting there thinking “I wonder what happened to…we used to be in touch  so regularly…” How many of(…)

What does success mean to you?

What does success mean to you?

Interesting question. Why? Because your definition of success should define your business behaviour. Let me explain. If  you measure your success by the size of your income, then you’d better find something to do that meets a real demand. Something that people want, and what’s more something that people will keep coming back for. You(…)
