15 rules for a great life

Admittedly there are many rules and clichés in life, however if you think hard about it, a cliché is only a cliché because although it's been said many times, it is true. Personally I've heard of many and what I've done here is distilled them into 15 rules which you might or might not have…

Lost in comfort?

Lost in comfort?

The comfort factor is probably one of the best dream killers I've ever known to exist. It works its way into your life quite easily and the next thing you know you're sat in front of the TV watching X-Factor and then the re-runs of Strictly Come Dancing on the +1 channels! I don't think…

Embrace the geek within

Embrace the geek within

If you want to succeed on whatever you are doing, you need to be geeky! I don't mean you need to be a technical wizard, no, in fact being a tech wizard isn't even part of the geek equation. What I mean by geeky is basically the definition of it as "a person heavily interested…

How vulnerable are you?

How vulnerable are you?

Wow, I watched a really interesting video on TED this morning as I was doing my running. It's one of those TED videos which you perhaps might not have chosen to watch, but whilst I was looking around, it seemed the only one I hadn't watched on my iPad out of all the featured talks…

Learning everyday

Learning everyday

Life goes by so quickly you often forget that everything which happens, is an opportunity to learn even more about the world around you and more importantly about yourself. Curiosity about ourselves is what has lead us to being here in this time, inventing the technology we have around us, and asking those questions about…

I love this so much I have to share again and explain how I lived through these rules in my early entrepreneurial life

I love this so much I have to share again and explain how I lived through these rules in my early entrepreneurial life

I found this video a while back in its short form and recently came across the long version and realised that there was more impact when the video was placed in context. This was Arnold Schwarzenegger's now legendary "Life's 6 Rules" speech, originally used during the Governor's 2009 USC Commencement Address. Watch the video below…

The biggest issue is mindset

The biggest issue is mindset

Talking to many people about this concept is an interesting thing. It's interesting because people fall into two camps, either they absolutely don't believe it can be possible, or they totally agree that this is the future. There is no middle ground and that in itself is rather curious. So why are people so against…

You know I was just standing on the platform at Waterloo this morning around 7:45am and this blaring tannoy announcement was made. "I'm pleased to say that today we have a good service running on all London Underground services". I looked around, I was standing on the Waterloo and City line platform, after having queued…

Which Neuropeptide are you Addicted to?

Which Neuropeptide are you Addicted to?

The human body is truly an outstanding machine that has so many capabilities, yet so many of us often times fail to recognise it, let alone harness it's true power and move forward to understand ourselves better. Take for instance, addictions. I think in many people's meanings, there is a negative association with that word…

Parents listen very carefully

Parents listen very carefully

What you say to your children is very important. I'm sure you know that already, but have you thought about the implications of the words you use? The unconscious mind is an extremely powerful creative tool that will manifest all that it wants and needs, but if you input "bad data" into that unconscious mind,…

Growing beyond your Pool

Growing beyond your Pool

I’m thinking back to a movie I’ve seen a couple of times called Big Fish. In this movie, the protagonist is a character that finds himself looking for more in life and embarks on a journey to discover the world around him. One quote which I’m thinking of in particular goes like this: “Has it…
