Project Declutter

Okay. Here’s the thing. I’m a hoarder and a pontificator who talks about things – starting projects, starting blog posts… and some things happen – leaving my job, starting a business, a mobile film festival, a music and film night, a website, a video podcast. All these things have happened through drive and commitment, but I realise the inbuilt me …

The Cynic’s Guide To Personal Development – An Overview

Mindfulness, colouring books for adults, meditation apps? Aspects of life which never entered my consciousness 5 or 10 years ago.If I tried to tell my 30 year old self how to achieve and improve things to actually make a dent in some of those dreams back then, I would have laughed myself out of the door.  Back in the early …

My reasons for writing

The only way to get good at something is to practice, right? Trial and error… Learn from failure… Go the extra mile… Set yourself goals and resolutions that you force yourself to keep. That’s how you grow a business, that’s how you achieve your dreams. That’s what they tell you, isn’t it? One thing I have always struggled with is …

Just Start

So here it is. Finally. A blog from my head – a cathartic exercise in self-analysis, a therapy of type, a contrived mess of characters and punctuation in the wrong place.s My confidence and ability in writing was always in question in my mind. I was a DRAWER not a WRITER. How could the two ever mix? I mean… I …

Video Won’t Save You… Ideas Will

This is a piece I wrote for the Content Marketing Association‘s (CMA) Video Engagement Industry Report… We’re experiencing an ever-accelerating cultural sandstorm, with every grain fragmenting into smaller and smaller pieces. Television has morphed and adapted to seismic cultural changes since its birth and now 90 years on, video is touted as the new ‘King’ of content, guided by the gravitational pull …

Talk

Our first university talk yesterday at Ravensbourne made me realise how far we’ve come as a company and what we’ve achieved in a relatively short space of time. To hear words like ‘inspiring’ from first and second year students is justification enough to keep going. As professional people it’s not often we collect ourselves and look back at our journey …

Pliers

Not a big one, not even big pliers, and certainly not any of my dad’s archaic old tools, which were probably passed down from his dad. No, I have no idea why I keep them, but discovered it may be a family trait (or hindrance) as my father confessed to being a hoarder of things, namely nails, screws, bits of …

Technics headphones

This isn’t going too well, the whole throwing something out everyday. Life is just too full of stuff to do and that’s not even counting work. These headphones have been slowly decomposing over the last 12 or so years. They leave tiny black pieces of some kind of cheap coating all over my head, in my ears and throughout my …
