To Be Still…

We are all on the move. The pace of life seems to be forever increasing. Life is fast, work is busy. Too much to do in too little time. Our lives are a frenetic ball of activities bouncing from day to week, week to month, month to year. And it doesn’t ever seem to stop.…

Happy Endings!

Everyone wants a fairytale-style happy ending, right? Everything turns out as planned, for the best, everyone’s happy, dreams are achieved. Movies are great at creating the perfect happy ending, against all odds, where it all just “comes together” in the closing scene. In real life we too want happy endings, our dreams achieved, challenges overcome, happiness…

Do I Have Your Vote?

The freedom to vote is a freedom I cherish. For me it’s not just about the freedom to vote, it represents a wider set of freedoms that accompany living in a democracy. You only have to switch on the news, or look at what is being shared on social media to recognise the value of…

Mind Monopoly

It would provide a business with limitless profit potential, even if it didn’t generate advocacy from the customers it extracted profit from. Because whilst businesses want to monopolise, customers…

I Don’t Know If I Like It Or Not…

  We all have a tendency to play it safe. We don’t want to take risks. We only go to restaurants we know we will like. We only going to the cinema if we are absolutely certain we will like the film. We prefer to engage with like-minded individuals with whom we share similar views or…

Inter-Goal Extinction

Interstellar extinction is the term used when objects in space are not visible to us because matter such as gas, particles and space dust get in the way and block our view. Consequently, there are objects in our own galaxy that we’ve never seen, because the concentrations of gas and dust are greater inside the galaxy…

You Can’t Argue With The Numbers

Numbers, and in particular mathematics, are considered to be the language of science. As such, numbers take on a particularly amazing quality: they’re immediately associated with facts and statistics. For example, did you know that only 1% of people who set out to achieve a goal actually succeed? The other 99% fail or give up.…

The Great Average

None of us want to be average, right? Most of us want to be more than average. Most of want to experience more than average. I don’t know anyone who would tell their boss they’re aiming for an average performance this year. I’ve not met the person who would go into a restaurant and expect…

Have You Made Up Your Mind Yet?

What’s on your mind? How many choices and decisions do you have to make today? How many long term decisions or concerns are occupying your mind right now? Our minds are only capable of making a certain number of decisions. This number can vary depending on the type of decisions you have to make; we…
