    Greetings, A list of seven things I thought I would share: Not everything has to be monetisable, scalable, or functional. We are allowed to do some things just for the sake of doing them. Somewhere around the time ‘busy’ became a badge of honour, we also lost our connection with doing things for fun. Even our social and other activities feel like work or, at least, we feel the need […]

    Greetings, It is that time of the year. Once, I used to use the end and the start of the year as an opportunity to reset. Now, it generally feels like a continuation, building on what has already been done. The lead up to Christmas was spent briefing out articles for a client to ensure that when January 3rd hit, there was already writing to be edited and submitted. Plus, […]

    Greetings I would like to think that being naturally curious has held me in good stead as I have navigated this ever changing world. There is the quote from futurist Alvin Toffler that is often bandied around: “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” I sincerely believe that being relentlessly curious helps us get […]

    Greetings, It can be easy to assume that we are all so connected that, should you share it on social media, many will hear about it. And yet, I am constantly reminded that it isn’t the case. I will mention to someone that I have a book out and it will be news to them, meanwhile I thought I had been punting it well. Or I will share the name […]

    Greetings This newsletter has become fortnightly really because of time. Time is something that I am constantly trying to manage better between being a father, a partner, a writer, a podcaster, and trying to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. Things end up ebbing and flowing and I am learning that it’s alright. Life happens and, as long as I feel that I am moving […]
