Are you failing to train or training to fail?

Failure is a funny thing It’s something that is a barrier to success for many people because it’s seen as something to avoid (at all costs). I’m sure you’ve heard that phrase before. The trouble is failure is often the only way to achieve success. Let me give you an example… I’m currently in a […]

Are you any good with a hammer?

We live an old house.  It’s not a rundown ramshackle affair but it was built in the 1850’s.  This inevitably means that there are bits of it that are worn, tired and in places, falling apart. For instance, there’s a point at which the conservatory meets the original roof line and it leaks.  We have […]

You and the Spice Girls!

Is it just me or is the line between work and play becoming more blurred the deeper we go into lockdown? There seems to be a general sense of all work and no play making everyone a dull boy or girl. There’s an irony in finding motivation to stop working as opposed to the lethargy that usually accompanies […]

Oh… Jimmy, Jimmy!

I’ve just finished watching the end of the remarkable first test between India and England, and there was a subtle little stat hidden away amongst all the figures that caught my eye.

Are you in Danger?

Or surrounded by opportunity? Whilst thinking about what to write this Friday morning, it occurred to me that that we’re very quickly coming up to a year since we started to be aware that this “bat thing” might affect us in some way or form. Some way or form I don’t think anyone expected the […]

Because heading into 2021, I guarantee that nailing this will play a key role in your success – especially if you’re a business who’s had to put many of the usual daily routines and focus on hold while we’re in the current (hopefully final!) lockdown.

Same but different….

Why things are different in Lockdown 3 Much as I’m sure you have too, the TBC team has had to “pivot” (ugh) and adapt how we work and behave as a business through 2020. We’ve had to balance a new way of working and living to take us into 2021. These are my observations on […]

Stop Hindering Your Path to Greatness!

Martina Navratilova was once asked, “How do you maintain your focus, physique and sharp game even at the age of 43?” You may not know who Martina is, but she’s considered a GOAT (greatest of all time) candidate in the tennis world. Her response? “The ball doesn’t know how old I am” What she meant […]

It’s all my fault

Nearly seven years ago I went on my very first (and only) mindfulness retreat.  As part of the weekend I met, fell in love with and then married my now wife, Kay.  Okay, we didn’t get married that weekend, but you get the idea!  Recently, Kay reminded me of a poem we read on that […]

Getting What You Are Worth

I love training. There’s something about going to the gym regularly, that energises me and makes me feel good about myself. When I’m training, it does a lot to help manage my low moods. It changes the whole way I approach my lifestyles, such as eating and drinking. It’s good for me. Except that for […]
