Get your chakras out

Well why not I ask myself. Life coach Becki was talking about my chakras (spellchecker wanted charades…) and meridians this morning. Those and the connection with the major back aches I get and my issues with repressed anger. Have you met many of the people I deal with? Suppliers, etc. not clients (ahem) I mean.…

If you’re expecting a travelogue…

… you probably won’t be disappointed. Travelogue through the holiday and the week so far maybe. So, as anticipated, there were few opportunities to blog while we were away. Not least because the daughter decided to do the itineraries. No issue with that, per se, but I’ve driven around five foreign road trips and she…

I’m not a robot – am I?

To log in and write this I have to tick a box confirming I’m not a robot. But that got me thinking. Which is never normally a good idea but someone has to do it… How do I know I’m not a robot? I THINK I’m not a robot but maybe I’ve spent just tooooooooooooooo…

Procrastination revisited

Inside my head is a big Domesday clock, ticking down to our holidays in a little over seven working days time and on a small piece of paper is my to do list. And I am doing my utmost to not do any of the urgent stuff – procrastination as an art form – because,…

Burning the candle at both ends

is bad enough but when the candle starts burning in the middle you KNOW you’ve got it wrong. There is something mindbogglingly negative about starting the day at an 07.00 networking meeting knowing that the last appointment in the same day is at 19.30 – over twelve hours later… Especially now – half way through…

In the doghouse again

Actually she hasn’t mentioned doghouse (or that I’m in it) but we blokes self-house (if there actually is such a thing) to save our spouses the bother… Have just got in, completely forgot she is going out tonight (actually not all that surprising, day-off Friday so a short week and waking up yesterday convinced it…

His mission is to transform the way people communicate in order to build a happier, more effective and more sustainable world. Communication, or rather a lack of it, is the root cause of most conflicts, be they commercial or…

I’m NOT paranoid – the weenies really ARE out to get me!

It’s been a bit of a quiet week really. Luckily because technology and me are having a serious falling out. But it’s not the software or hardware in the main this time. It’s the bl00dy people that have been driving me mad… completely paranoid. That said I’ve just spent nearly 75 minutes between sentence two…

Bugger – forgot

to write my blog yesterday. Forgetting is surprisingly easy to do with a default diary. Unless you have the discipline to move “fixed” items if something gets in the way… It was truly necessary to move the blog. An executorship which, for reasons I cannot mention, has lasted over three years is FINALLY reaching a…

Software – can’t live with it, can’t live without it (2)

S’true now as it ever was. Already used this title but that’s no reason not to use it again. Am “assisting” with transferring from this laptop to another, newer one. After all this time you’d THINK you’d be able to plug one into the other and everything of interest will move across. But no. Download all the…
