Panic & Withdraw

I am going through the mill with my health right now – I won’t go in to in too much detail but they are messing around with my medicine. The oral dose was not seeming to work as efficiently and they are now trying me on a new injectable. The injectable is liver secreted – could stop drinking sports? Either way, my wage of 18X pints, wracked up against Dennis’ site remains and the I…

Rumblings Of A ‘Cast

Not as a way to make big money (blogging didn’t do that either). But as a way to share your ideas, to lead your community, to earn trust. Podcasting is a proven technology that is still in its infancy. It’s an open mic, a chance for people with something to say to find a few people (or perhaps more than a few people) who’d like to hear them say it. And podcasting is the generous…

Jumping The Shark

Short-term thinking repeated again and again doesn’t lead to long-term thinking. The stated strategy of Yahoo was to build more and more internal content and services (Yahoo mail, Yahooligans, Yahoo Finance) to keep as many surfers on their site for as long as they could. The math was simple: if you’re getting paid by the impression, having someone stay for twenty or thirty clicks is way more profitable than encouraging them to leave and go…

Wood

Tell me when you’re going to finish. Tell me if you fall behind. Don’t make me ask. It’s difficult for a small organisation or a dedicated craftsperson to run an operation as punctually as a large bureaucracy. After all, the bureaucracy exists mainly to be sure that deadlines are honoured and variances are not exceeded. Your customers are aware of this. It’s one reason that they chose you–because you’re doing the work yourself, you’re a…

Cassius “The Neon Explosion”

So there was a new game show on ITV called ‘Show Me Your Talent’. The game show contestants needed to guess what the ‘subject’ did with their time. Included in the subjects, there were folk who were Musical Theatre Performers to pole performers and Sword Swallowers. But what got me was the final guess-of-a-guest – the contestants had exhausted all avenues and the final question (to win £65k) was to guess the wrestler in an…

Loading Dose Update // It’ll Be Lonely

I am back home safe from another breathless walk to Windsor House. See HERE for last week’s walk. It was for the completion of the Loading Dose that I walked across town, today – but, it was a different town. Lock Down 3.0 is lifting and the streets were coming to life. Children played and Adults socialised over a pint – town is coming back to life. It is a beautiful thing to see. And,…

Thoughts About Blogging

I have reached the 25% Complete mark of the year’s worth of Blogging. You can follow progress at #365BlogChallenge Here are some thoughts on the exercise – Throughout the Blog, there’s a desire to celebrate my “authentic” self. But perhaps my considered self, the one that shows up when I’m doing my best to be consistent, generous and professional–that’s my authentic self.

Ten Reasons To Write A Book

More than ten, actually. Millions of books will be published this year and for good reason. People rarely regret the effort. Everyone has their own, but here are some of the reasons to get you started: It clarifies your thinking. It leaves behind a record of where you are in this moment. It’s clearly not going to be a worldwide mass-market bestseller, so you can focus only on the people who want to hear from…
