  • Motivations for an Unusual Life
    on Dec 18, 2014 in life self-improvement
    When I was in my mid 30’s, I went with a friend, as you do, to an evening talk by a management theorist (Charles Handy, if you’re curious, a most intriguing writer). On the way there, my friend casually mentioned that the average life exp...
  • How To Spot A Sociopath
    on Nov 28, 2014 in life relationships
    It’s estimated that sociopaths (or psychopaths as they used to be called) make up anywhere from 1-4% of the population. They can be INCREDIBLY destructive to your life, and it can take years or decades to recover (in my experience). So, knowin...
  • An Odd Thing I Can’t Explain
    on Nov 19, 2014 in communication life
    I’ve noticed something odd. The more I stay in a loving space – particularly when the people around me aren’t – the more douche bags seem to exit my life. Let me explain. Say someone starts having a go at me online. If I stay...
  • Can You Love A Paedophile?
    on Nov 16, 2014 in life
    One of my oldest friends just got thrown in jail, after pleading guilty to paedophilia. I sat in the court room for three days, and even though I wasn’t specifically involved (I was just there as a character reference), it was still one of the...
  • Celebrate The Small Victories
    on Nov 6, 2014 in life
    I recently flew from London to New Zealand. To say it was a disaster is an understatement. Although to be fair, I did get home safely, on time and with all my bags. I booked this particular flight a year ago. It comprised of two legs, from London to...
  • Are We Allowing Ourselves To Be Happy?
    on Oct 31, 2014 in healing self-improvement
    Recently I’ve been thinking about happiness. Obviously, there is some level of conscious control involved: We can choose to focus our attention on either the positive or negative around us. We can choose how much time we spend thinking about...
  • You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You
    on Oct 23, 2014 in healing relationships
    I’ve been on a dating site recently. Not with any significant expectations (I trust the universe to look after me), more just about “keeping the door open” and passing the time. However, I noticed myself slipping into compulsive beh...
  • What Is Love?It’s a big question. What is love? For a start, the word “love” can mean a lot of different things. The ancient Greeks had five main types: Philia – loyalty. Motivated by practical reasons; one or both the parties benefit from...
  • Surviving a Break-Up
    on Oct 10, 2014 in healing relationships
    Relationship break-ups suck. There’s no two ways about it. They hurt. However, we have to get through them. We don’t (usually) have the freedom to hide in bed for six months (or three years) until all the pain goes away. So, what to do? W...
  • What You Resist Persists
    on Oct 8, 2014 in healing self-improvement
    Have you ever tried not thinking of pink elephants? It’s the oldest kid joke in the book. Why is it even funny? Well of course, because you can’t not think of something. Our brains just don’t work that way. There are ways around t...
