Good Performances Bring Results

It’s never been easy being a QPR fan. I’ve seen it all.  Since 2000 I’ve experienced three promotions, three relegations, two play-off finals, an injury time winner at Wembley, 15 managers and 5 owners (I think!). A rollercoaster of emotions and frustrations interspersed with moments of joy. Ask any QPR fan and one of the […]

Hungry?

Our two puppies Bobby and Lily turn a whole one year old on Monday.  Although litter mates, they couldn’t be more different. Lily is complex, lacks confidence, demands affection on her terms and usually the one causing mischief. She’d make a very good cat. Bobby is simple, endlessly enthusiastic and smothers you with affection. He also […]

Learner Driver

When was the last time you actually thought about how to drive? Ironically, I thought about this yesterday when ambling back from Cheltenham after shooting some video content.  There was traffic, I’d finished my podcast and I started concentrating on what I was doing rather than doing what I always do, which is drive on autopilot.

Are potholes in your business making you lose momentum?

  It’s pretty where I live.   In the country. Lots of green space, fields, woodland and farms.   Once you get past our tiny hamlet of four houses the only dwellings for about a mile are three stables. We live on a single-track road (with passing places) in South Buckinghamshire.   It’s surrounded by […]

How can I deal with or prevent burnout?

I think many business minded people start off in life thinking only about the money – how much can I make and how quickly can I make it?   We put money above all else at the expense of the rest of our lives.   I was no different …   I lost a lot […]

Stop Beating Yourself Up (Nobody Else Does)

This Wednesday was World Mental Health Day and it got me thinking about the way we treat ourselves and the way we treat others and the gap in between.   One weekend last month I was really lucky and played a lot of golf.   I played 9 holes on the Friday night, 18 Saturday, […]

Stop Being Your Own Critic And Start Being Supportive

We are our harshest critics.   There’s no one else in the world who will find fault as often and as discriminately as we do to our selves.   It’s good to look back on what we’ve done and learn from our mistakes but there’s a fine line between being critical and being cruel.   Next […]
