Four brained octopus?? Is that a syndrome or a bonus?

Posted by:

I have had just the funniest series of email chats with Georgina Lester about being busy. We have been “trying” to meet up to talk about social media. I have been out speaking at property events and busy writing my new book and Georgina has been busy developing her new social media business. Georgina wrote that she had had to come to terms with not being a four brained octopus with enough fingers to match.Continue Reading →

Complaining or just telling it how it is?

Posted by:

After last week’s article on gratitude and saying thank you – it seems ironic that this week I might be seen to be complaining. Maybe everyone is having a summer customer service survey, maybe it’s the impact of the recession getting everyone to look more closely at the service they offer?

First I received a letter from RBS advising me of a forthcoming survey and asking would I take part. The Director introduced himself and made a point of saying customer ...

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 ...

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 ...

A Polo neck jumper in May – are you mad?

Well I may be – but that is another topic all together :)

I can’t believe how cold it has been – randomn coldness – most strange – bound to be global warming or global cooling, next we’ll have snow in July !

sepia-snow-churchAnyway I was so cold the other day I really wanted to put the heating on. I just managed to resist. Twice a year I have ...

I thought I was adventurous?

Posted by:

I thought I was an adventurer, I am an adventurer! Then when did I become too scared to ice skate ! We went ice skating in Slough with the nieces-in-law (in common law ?!?) aged 3 and 4 years old.
I took one look at the speed of the other (very professional) skaters and decided that I wasn’t going on the ice. I think it all started last December when for one of our regular ‘get togethers’ with ...

A loud Economics rant – cover your eyes :)

Posted by:

Well I am no economist but I believe that the availability of credit (or lack of it) is what is causing the issue in the UK right now and I can only assume globally.

I think that in UK, Europe and USA, we have a problem caused by the greed of the past. Where any decision is influenced by the amount of bonus you can get, how could anyone make a decision that was right from a business perspective ...

Communication matters – just ask

Posted by:

Isn’t it strange how important communication is? I don’t just mean the action of communicating, talking or writing, I mean the act, the way the message is delivered. I had two such startlingly different experiences in the space of fives hours that I thought I really must share it with you.

I mentioned before, that last year, we were due to fly out on holiday on Boxing Day. We duly took off from Gatwick and instead of turning right towards the ...

I keep losing things!

Posted by:

the-moon What’s going on? Yesterday I was thinking about how planning has really helped me. Helped me to focus, to feel less stressed, to really set the momentum for my business. This morning its like I am on a different planet! I Just got a call from someone who was going to work for me saying sorry they got home late and didn’t read my email. Well that’s handy because I ...
