Why do flies hit the window?

Posted by:

I searched on Google and people are only amazed that the fly still lives – no-one has commented on the stupidity of the action.

I watched a small frog while I was on holiday in Indonesia repeatedly jumping at a corner of the wall.

As humans we often make a mistake – in fact making mistakes is almost a pre-requisite of achieving success. It means you are attempting something new – pushing at the boundaries of your knowledge and experience.

Surely if you ...

Where’s the manual when you need it?

Posted by:

I was only away on holiday in June – just 6 weeks ago! I spent a full week on a photography course – now I am back in the Red Sea and can’t remember how to use my camera!!!  One of the guys on the boat has the same camera as me, a canon Ixus 980IS (very nice :) ) and asked me how to change it from program mode to manual. Well that was what I ...

A spanner in the works – does wonders for your planning !!

Posted by:

Well obviously not ! The whole point of planning is to allocate specific time to specific important tasks, achieving your goals more easily as you master managing your time and creating a more productive outcome.

Then all of a sudden the spanner arrives !

I had been doing really well with managing my time, I tend to focus on a maximum of three key tasks in a day (no more than that), once they are complete I then identify the next three tasks or ...

Looking for the small stuff

Posted by:

I love underwater photography, I am not sure what makes it so exciting, is it the new creatures you discover? the challenge of taking a good shot while floating, or resisting a current at depths up to 90 feet below the surface? is it the memories it brings back? - who knows, but I am hooked.

If I could, I would spend every waking moment below the sea somewhere (with warm water – I am a bit choosy :)Continue Reading →

Seeing a different angle

Posted by:

It is quite difficult sometimes – with all the pressures we are under to be creative, reflective, inspirational. The hussle and bussle – the noise, the distractions. That is one of the reasons I love scuba diving :) Peace and quiet, the warm water, the gentle current (if you are lucky) and the amazing opportunities to see new things or see them in a different way.

During this month’s trip to Nuweiba, we dived a site called ...

Did you know that Orange smarties taste of orange?

Posted by:

I think because we sometimes shovel more than one Smartie in at a time lots of people don’t know that orange Smarties are filled with orange flavoured chocolate. When I was younger I used to eat them one at a time to make them last, taking each sweet and sucking off the coating then prying the case open with my tongue while being careful not to break it (who am I kidding – I still do it). That’s how I ...

It feels like pushing string!

Posted by:

Grr! I have been feeling so frustrated! I can see things so clearly, I understand the business opportunity, I know where the profit is, I know what the risk is. I also have done my research and I understand the immediate business environment I am working in and I have looked at the wider implications of the economic environment. Why can’t everyone else see what I see?

Time and time again I would go to Property network meetings, training events, and business ...

Have you ever felt that you are running too fast?

Posted by:

Cancer Research Run 2008

Have you ever felt that you were running too fast, whether in life or in the gym? Yesterday I was down the gym and as part of my warm up I used the running machine. I set the programme as normal (or so I thought) and set off. The machine gradually got faster and then too fast! I had to reduce the speed – that ...
