Your greatest, highest self: sowing the seeds of your future

  “We are what and where we are because we have first imagined it” – Donald Curtis. When you were first born you were helpless. You couldn’t hold your head up on your own; you certainly couldn’t conceive of being able to walk or run. Yet within 2 short years you were probably trotting around,Continue Reading

When work is quiet: Calling freelancers, consultants, + the self-employed

When work is quiet: Calling freelancers, consultants, + the self-employed

It’s been a quiet month. Or worse, a quiet couple of months. You love what you do and wouldn’t return to apron-strings-employment for all the Gin in England. But, the truth of the matter is you don’t find quiet times easy: It’s hard to stay positive. When work is short it can be hard toContinue Reading

Why your happiness is essential to sustainability

As part of the Dalai Lama’s trip to the UK this summer he went to Glasto festival.

You’re part of something amazing

You’re part of something amazing

Do you ever feel like the work other people do is more important? More impressive? More impactful? Like everyone around you is involved with some really gobsmackingly amazing stuff. Really contributing to something tangible and better. And you’re kind of on the periphery? Maybe you don’t feel like this all the time, but there areContinue Reading

Capturing inspiration for the tough days

Capturing inspiration for the tough days

PermanentlyBrilliant is in an embryonic form – that much Manda admits. But she’s humble and she doesn’t tell me how fab it is regardless of it’s incompleteness.
