A podcast on a Monday morning, whatever next! Today I am reflecting, and acting on, ideas in a wonderful free audio interview with the poet David Whyte. I am only half way through it and I highly recommend it – I shall be listening to the rest just as soon as I have finished this. [...]
Oh dearie, dear. I found myself repeating a well-established, and unhelpful, pattern this afternoon. I got excited yesterday about the direction, or lack of direction, my life is taking work-wise – more on that in a moment. So I had plans today to start writing out the projects I had in mind and [...]
Sometimes there is synchronicity, and then, there is synchronicity….I find Sally’s blog at www.sallylever.co.uk often chimes with things I’m thinking about. I decided to contact her and ask if she wanted to do reciprocal guest posts – I’m keen to build a sense of community here and in the rest of my life. [...]
I am in a strange space at the moment. There’s a lot of head stuff going on that’s searching for a way out but doesn’t know how or where to go. Hence posts have been sporadic. My sustainable change project has fallen by the wayside – it may resurrect itself soon. One issue that [...]

Yet again, I’ve been gone a while. I have a good reason. I’ve been learning to pace myself, finally….. On the advice of my wonderful physio, I’ve realised that the way I’ve been doing things has been contributing to ongoing pain from an injury. And it dawned on me that no one else is going [...]
This week I’m back out delivering training and the first course covered financial management. Representatives from Finance deliver part of the course.
