At the start of 2015, I sat down with a small group of friends to complete the Year Compass. It was a great way to reflect on the previous 12 months and look at what you'd like to get out of the next 12, plus making time to sit down and do it in the... Continue Reading →
Making time and getting organised
You may have noticed that, over the last few months, my blogging has tailed off somewhat. I've been trying to find the time to write, and time to plan what I want to write, but it never seems to come together. I used to have lists of ideas for blog posts in the notebook that... Continue Reading →

Job satisfaction and… new horizons?
