Time is running out… (for all of us)

You may have noticed that, while everyone else was slamming you with “Black Friday this” and “Cyber Monday that”, your ol’ pal William was silent. Silent on that, at least. I was still writing as usual. There are a few reasons why I didn’t…

Positivity is the weapon of choice

Isn’t it strange how much life rewards positivity? I don’t mean in the sense that the universe is waiting for us to smile. I mean in real, simple and common sense ways. Under the old corporate model, folk worked best when given a title,…

How to stop feeling invisible

How many folk know you? I don’t mean your name and what you look like – how many folk in your life know the real you? If I were to interview your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours, how many could tell me what you…

Do you automatically improve every day?

Improving your life – whether physically, financially, spiritually, mentally or socially – takes time and dedicated effort. It involves careful planning, advanced training and lots of introspection. It’s a long, gruelling slog. Right…? Surely it must be… But what would it look like if…
