Ash’s musings, thoughts and observations on being a business owner (and having more fun when you’re not working)…

To be or not to be?

I’ve been busy… Busy doing stuff, but most importantly busy just “being”. Let me explain… A few weeks ago I achieved a massive life goal of moving into what can only be described as our dream home. …..It’s perfect…. Well, maybe not perfect….  there’s heaps of work to do on it but those imperfections are […]

It’s a question of perspective

  I met a friend for breakfast earlier this week. We hadn’t caught up properly in a while and whilst we were sharing our relative journeys it was really interesting how many parallels our stories had.   There were a couple of things we talked about that really stood out for both of us. We […]

Are you responsible?

I’ve been in the sauna again. Yesterday, after my gym session and I got talking to this lady. She happened to be lying across the bench and had a walking stick with her. As she moved, I suggested it was no problem or her to continue to stretch out as I was going to sit […]

You’ll never walk alone…

You know those really irritating couples who always finish each other’s sentences (and wear matching purple shellsuits)? Irritating though it is, it does show a real understanding of each other’s thought patterns and an in depth knowledge of each other’s goals, dreams and aspirations. There has to be synergy there, like an invisible current between […]

Shepherds delight

It appears Josie has been having a little trouble at school. She’s not getting into trouble per se but more the sort of social, peer trouble that invariably we all dealt with at her age. She’s twelve and a term and a half into her first year of secondary school and again, nothing new for […]

Nothing unusual there except the whole process is proving to be a nightmare in communication and (I’m going to make up a word […]

Why?

  Wow what a week! Things have been really busy here. Not only have I been delivering to loads of new clients and working on The Implementation Mastermind, I’ve also been working on two other exciting projects that will come to life later this year.  Not to mention that QPR won away! Both of the latter […]

Why doesn’t it just work….?

It’s not what you know, it’s who you know… So last night I nearly threw my laptop at the wall. The only thing that saved it was QPR managing to win their first away points in 12 games which meant I nearly hit my head on the ceiling in joy instead. That’s another blog however; something […]

Getting steamed up in the Sauna

I managed to get to the gym for the first time in a week or so today.  In fact I’ve just got out of the sauna and felt compelled to write this.  I love having a sauna. Not only is it relaxing physically but it also gives me an opportunity to just sit and let […]

Do less and get more….

I really believe that to achieve more you need to spend less time doing it. Think about Formula 1 races for a moment.  It’s not the faster car that wins the race but the team that implements the best strategy for refuelling and tyre changing.  The race is not won by the driver who drives […]
