I’ve been a mentor at The Trust now for nearly 2 years and I love it. I enjoy the spirit of the people who work there (it’s very much a ‘can-do’ environment) and I equally love the variety of people I meet and the business ideas they bring to The Trust. It’s random. It’s positively charged. It’s my kinda […]
We think of -ish as a small thing. I’m hungry-ish I’ll be there about 5-ish I’m OK-ish The -ish part making the other part less of what it is. So it got me thinking… when someone is called self-ish, is it good or bad? It could be perceived that a little ‘me time’ is seen by […]
I’m really enjoying the reaction around the 3 Minute Fitness programme on BBC a couple of nights ago. What I particularly enjoyed about the programme, was the programme itself!

I’m posting this as it was a pleasant surprise when I put the radio on in the car the other day. Taken from the BBC Radio3 Free Thinking Festival, it’s a good listen (overall) and an interesting reflection on what we call Freedom – personal, cultural & societal. Strangely enough, I found Germaine’s voice rather soothing; possibly […]
This article on the BBC today looks at the Government’s approach to measuring the nation’s level of happiness. Do you agree or disagree?
This will be a short sharp post. Nothing more than a personal reflection. I’m not one for too many rules as I find them constraining, but I do have a few guiding principles. One of them is to avoid saying “if only”. Fate has its place but not when it comes to being the master of one’s own […]
“Knowledge rests not upon truth alone, but upon error also” – Carl Jung Believe it or not, I’m not always Mr Life is Bloomingly Wonderfully Positive.
