Deep work: it’s hard (and I didn’t even do very much of it)
Deep work: it’s hard (and I didn’t even do very much of it)

When I buy a book, I do this very odd thing where for a good few months (or even a year or more) I talk about the concept as if I know what I’m talking about….before I read the book. I’m not sure why I do that. Maybe it’s preparing my mind to read. No […]

You don’t need everyone to love you. Just a few good people
You don’t need everyone to love you. Just a few good people

The Greatest Showman is one of my favourite films. It’s got catchy music, a great cast, and a solid message about not letting business and money take over.  And it’s got some good solid quotes that made me stop and think, especially this one when Hugh Jackman’s character is rushing off to yet another round […]

But what if you could? Or what if you did know?
But what if you could? Or what if you did know?

Sometimes you just don’t know. Or you feel like you can’t. What moves you from that, to exploring whether you could? Or to a place of knowing you can, and doing it? Earlier this week my sister and I were hiking Lookout Mountain in Phoenix, at sunrise. I’m in Arizona in between conferences in the […]

The travel list: how to get things done when you’re out of pattern
The travel list: how to get things done when you’re out of pattern

I do enjoy travel, and sometimes get a good bit of work done when doing so. But I used to find there were all these things i wanted to get done…but I wasn’t at my iMac with the nice Yeti microphone and the webcam and the camtasia video editing software and the faster speeds and […]

Maybe it’s not working…because it’s a new phase
Maybe it’s not working…because it’s a new phase

On Monday, for the first time in 28 weeks, i stepped on the scale and had a gain of 1.4 pounds…and absolutely no idea why.  I have only gained twice in that time period, and both times I had specific reasons that helped it make sense, and both were under 0.6 pounds each time.  But […]

You’re not “just tired”. There’s always something else.
You’re not “just tired”. There’s always something else.

Some days, or parts of days, you’re just not productive. You’re not targeting your goals or firing on all cylinders or crushing it. You’re not reading impactful books or watching helpful documentaries. You’re not going to the gym or cooking a healthy meal or having insightful conversations.  You’re just…tired.  Or are you?  Are you ever […]

Marketing manager needed
Marketing manager needed

My company needs a marketing manager.  I’m hijacking my Karen’s notes this week to ask for your help. No matter how much we do in terms of recruitment, the best hires often come from someone knowing someone else.  We’re firm on what we want (and don’t want) at PF, we have a fairly intensive hiring […]

What to do when you get one of those heart-racing emails

You know when you get one of those emails or texts that gets your heart really racing?  Something has gone wrong or has been difficult with someone (from a friend to a client to a supplier or whoever), and you’ve been communicating with them for a little while. And at first you were okay, just […]

Go for a walk: Let all the thoughts swirl around and get outside of your head
Go for a walk: Let all the thoughts swirl around and get outside of your head

Some mornings, I wake up with a lot of thoughts already swirling around in my head. It’s like I put them to the side when I went to bed, and the second I open my eyes (or before) they leap upon me again and fill my head before I even have time to grab coffee.  […]

Island Rules: Not everything will go your way (and that’s okay)
Island Rules: Not everything will go your way (and that’s okay)

“I like this island, because it slows you down whether you want to or not. The island itself literally won’t allow you to rush.”  My brother in law said this as we were driving along the winding, rutted, curving roads of Mull. The sea was crashing on our right, the sun glowing through the clouds […]
