Try something different – Try something new

Try something different,
Try something new,
Have a purple potato,
Or two.

Try something different
Add something new,
Create excitement,
For what you do.

Try something different,
Do something new,
A hobby, a location,
A job or two.

Try something different,
Read, watch, listen,
To something new,
Monitor your thoughts and feelings
And your actions too.

Think something different,
Think something new,
Be brave, face your fears
And make your dreams come true.

(Despite their appearance, these potatoes were very yummy. I ate this meal in London, prior to walking around the Digital Revolution Exhibition.)

What do you think about my new profile pic?


Hi everyone

As I have longer hair, I thought it important to update my profile picture with a new and current photo, across my social media. I tried to get a balance of a professional, smart and approachable look. What do you think? Do you feel it’s suitable? Any changes needed?

I still have to update some more profiles and there will be a few places where you may see the previous photo. On the whole it will be this one you will see from now on.

When is it good not to think?


Hi everyone

I have so much to tell you.

I am back from my trip to the Success Seminar in London. While I was up there, I also visited London Zoo, I saw the film Anomaly and I went to the Digital Revolution Exhibition, that blew my mind.

On the day I came back, I had 4 hours sleep, then taught the Introduction to blogging course. I took so many photos and that much video footage of the Digital Revolution Exhibition, that my phone stopped working and I couldn’t call or do anything with my phone, until I got it fixed in the EE shop after teaching on Monday 7th.

On Tuesday 8th, I had an admin day. I also cleaned, tidied and cleared out some bottles of stuff from underneath my kitchen sink.

I have been working in my day job every day since, and trying to catch up with social media, emails and blogging.

As you know, I am a deep thinker and my brain never stops thinking. Sometimes it’s good not to think. I have so much to do that if I sat down and did the sensible thing of writing everything down that I have to, it would overwhelm me. Yes, I make written lists of things to do and set myself tasks and goals each day, but if I become too rigid and ‘work-like’ with everything I have to do, it doesn’t feel good. Instead of enjoying what I do, the opposite happens and I become unproductive. Yes, I have an overview of what must be done, but I have to do it the quirky way. If I schedule too much, it becomes a chore and that shows. Does that happen to you?

Things I need to do:

  • I have to create a new website for http://www.beatredundancyblues.com as my web host no longer services RV Sitebuilder that I used to build it. I have been unable to access my admin panel for at least a couple of months and now I can get into it, I can’t make any amendments due to constant Java script errors. This site is currently more popular than my http:// http://www.beatredundancyblues.co.uk site that is built using WordPress. I have no choice but to change it.
  • After making a few amendments to my Break through the barriers of redundancy book, I need to re-index and paginate it, within the interior CreateSpace template.
  • After being asked by businesses about training staff in blogging, I thought it best to set up a website to build a professional brand for my blog training. I have bought the domain name http://www.BlogTrainer.co.uk and have yet to build the site. I have a new @blogtrainerUK Twitter account and now need to grow my followers. Thanks to those of you who have already joined me on that account.

I haven’t forgotten that I still have blog awards to officially accept in future posts. Thanks to all of you who have given me awards. I very much appreciate them.

I managed to track down my English teacher from college. She edits manuscripts. I sent her a copy of my Break through the barriers of redundancy book manuscript so she could give it a quick scan. Her feedback was encouraging. She said it’s interesting, well thought out and there are not many books like it on the market. I was thrilled with those comments. As she is very critical, I know it must be a good book.

Because my Break through the barriers of redundancy book advertises my http://www.beatredundancyblues.com site on the front cover, updating that site, must be a priority.

I have to not think too much and just get on with it.

When would not thinking, be good for you?

Success – Here I come!


Hi everyone

I am currently on the train to London, for the Success Seminar at the ExCel centre tomorrow.

There is going to be a lot of successful entrepreneurs and business people speaking there. Including the guy behind the Pursuit of happiness film. He is the guy who the film was based on. I can’t wait.
