Lights, Camera, Action

Lights, Camera, Action I’m sure you’ve come across this phrase before.  I’m always intrigued by it as there’s an underlying piece in those three words when it comes to business that is equally frustrating, and sometimes inspiring. I prefer to be inspired. I see too many business owners focussed on the first two of the above […]

Lessons from Open Heart Surgery – A Year On 

Wednesday, 13th December 2023 marked a significant milestone for me. Not a “big birthday” or business sale but the one-year anniversary of having open heart surgery. There was only a short gap between the diagnosis of severe aortic stenosis and nearly eight hours of an invasive, yet ultimately life saving procedure. The year since has […]

What’s important?

I went to the funeral of a friend this week. I shan’t go into details other than to say it was probably the best I’ve ever been to. Mostly, I suspect, because of the clear impact he had of the lives he touched and that was reflected in the messaging through the whole ceremony and […]

There’s always more to do….

I suspect I’m not alone in waking up some mornings, checking my to-do list and groaning with exasperation. Sure, there are people out there who’ll exhort you to wake up earlier (5am) sleep less (3 hours a fortnight is plenty!) or skip meals to get more done and lose weight at the same time! I’m […]

The 151st Open Championship at Hoylake, Liverpool was won by an unassuming chap called Brian Harman. Not a Rory, Rahm, Justin, or Cameron in sight.  In fact, Brian was so far out of sight he won by a whopping 7 shots, only the 3rd American in four decades to do this.   It’s the equivalent of […]

Progress Is Subjective

  They say that Rome wasn’t built in a day – but they were laying bricks on day one.   Progress is so subjective but it’s human nature to compare ourselves to others.  Whether it’s the neighbour who’s driving a new sports car, the childhood friend who’s retired early, or the cousin that’s on yet another […]

Where You Lead, I Follow

I’m going to apologise early doors for any leadership puns in this one…    Because at home, we’ve been busy teaching the puppies to walk on the lead in the last couple of weeks.    And the question at this stage is who’s walking who!     I’ve always loved animals and I’ve always had a […]

On The Edge Of Glory 

We’re only a couple of weeks away from one of sport’s greatest rivalries resuming…    As England take on Australia for the Ashes once again.    And I wanted to talk about one of cricket’s most infamous moments, which took place in the 1948 Ashes series.    Don Bradman, arguably the greatest cricketer ever to […]
