A Slightly Unconventional New Year Message…

Happy New Year to all my family, friends, colleagues, and everyone wherever you may be in the world!… As you may have realised by now, I have a rather attitude to new year resolutions… whilst the intentions are undoubtedly great, they are generally doomed to failure because there is rarely any sort of realistic strategy or plan as to how they  might be achieved. To me, it has always seemed idealistic to expect that just […]


You may have seen the film and therefore probably know that ‘koyaanisquatsi’ means ‘crazy life’ or ‘life out of balance’, but for those of you who haven’t heard of it: It details the crazy way that us humans live our lives whilst destroying the planet, has no dialogue, lots of time-lapse photography, and a haunting score by Philip Glass. The point is that we are often so engrossed in our daily habitual routine that we […]

True Friends?…

In a previous post we discussed how it is virtually impossible to to have a truly positive attitude and outlook on life when we are constantly surrounded by negativity; news, TV programs, political backstabbing, etc. Well, there another potentially far greater source of negativity; people!… …maybe those you work with, friends of friends, or even your own friends and family.

Lean Thinking vs Lean Mind…

Originally ‘Lean Thinking’ was defined in Womack & Jones influential 1996 book as consisting of five principles: 1) Specify Value 2) Identify The Value Stream 3) Flow 4) Pull 5) Perfection Clearly, the focus is on processes rather than people.

Either way, there is no recognition of the need to have the right […]

The list of possible suspects is endless… … but actually ALL WRONG! Truly successful people do not look for scapegoats; they accept that they themselves are the cause of every success or failure in their lives.
