    On Suicide.

    Might helping people who consider suicide, to feel less trapped and more in control, be helpful to managing suicidal thoughts?

  • I Want to Help One Billion People Prioritise Their Happiness

    I Want to Help One Billion People Prioritise Their Happiness

    A very bizarre set of events led me to discover Mo Gawdat and his movement onebillionhappy. This highly inspiring man who could, by all accounts, be sitting in his wealth, isolated from everything that is going on in the world, is instead on an audacious mission to help ONE BILLION people figure out and focus […]

  • 10 Days into #LinkyBrains and this is what it's about for me.

    10 Days into #LinkyBrains and this is what it's about for me.

    10 mad days It has been the maddest 10 days of my life and I’ve had plenty mad. Time to reflect on this LinkyBrain thing – taking in all the feedback  that’s rolling in from chats, blog posts and spontaneous conversations and I’d like to share them. Here are my reflections, 10 days in. LinkyBrains […]

  • I have a confession. I'm a #Linkybrain

    I have a confession. I'm a #Linkybrain

    The world became much less lonely for me two weeks ago. I was quietly minding my own business, doing what I always do – dream and deliver. Then I read something that connected with feelings I had buried deep and lost the key to. Then I read another and another – until it was clear. […]

  • March's 30 Day Challenge: 2 minutes of high knees + 3 minutes of push ups!

    March's 30 Day Challenge: 2 minutes of high knees + 3 minutes of push ups!

    5 Minutes seems the right amount of time To get to a very nice sweat – with the right exercises of course. The 30 Day Plank Challenge was phenomenal! My back, legs and core feel so much more reliable. I think that they are so effective that I will keep doing them every other day, […]

  • My 15 Year List of Ideas is a Ready Made Company Selector

    My 15 Year List of Ideas is a Ready Made Company Selector

    For the last 15 years I’ve maintained a list of ideas to build – things that both excite me and improve the world. I’ve kept it pruned, adding new ideas, removing those that no longer seem viable and adding more details of the idea over time to those that still do. It turns out this […]

  • Offer: Let's have a helpful conversation

    Offer: Let's have a helpful conversation

    It seems that when I’m most busy is when I also seem to want to share and help others the most – so continuing in a long established tradition, I would like to offer some office hours to help anyone who needs it. But first – at the risk of inventing another buzzword/phrase that gets […]

  • Yes, learning is hard. But do it anyway.

    Yes, learning is hard. But do it anyway.

    It seems popular, these days, for coaches and consultants to talk about ‘continuous learning’ or the ‘learning organisation’. Learning is like sex – everyone nods knowingly when it is being talked about, but few are actually doing it well or at all. For me, learning a new skill is hard – especially if you are […]

  • Day 1: I am Rohingya #51Days

    Day 1: I am Rohingya #51Days

    Today as part of my #51days act of solidarity, I shall change my twitter profile to ‘I am Rohingya” The Rohingya are an ethnic group that live in Myanmar – formerly Burma – they are mostly Muslims in a country that is predominantly Buddhist. For a toxic mix of reasons – ranging from religious difference, […]

  • 51 days of solidarity and advocacy.

    There are 51 days until Christmas 2016. For each of those days,I will change my name on Twitter to reflect a cause I want to support and bring some attention in a small way. Why? There is so much wrong with the world. There is so much that is right too. We are each nodes […]
