Can’t hide forever

I am in a most unfortunate situation.  I work in a building where my ex works.

We don’t work for the same company thank God!  But she works for the business that has the floor space a couple of levels down.

I always accepted that there was a likelihood I would bump into her.

And up to this point my strategy for handling the situation has been to take cover and hide wherever possible.

Love, sex and apps…

I stopped watching the Apprentice years ago because it was the same repetitive format.

But I read a piece on one of the finalists business ideas and I couldn’t help resist giving my opinion when it was revealed that finalist Vana Koutsomitis is a dating app called ‘PlayDate’.

Although the decision was most likely made months and months ago I have to say that this is a very stupid investment.  I won’t tackle this from a business point of view but a male with experience of online dating point of view. Continue reading “Love, sex and apps…”

As I write this to mark my 200th post it seems fitting that as I sat in my new home the other day, the ‘missus’ quiet casually brings my blog into conversation.

Make time for your loved ones

So much to do in a day, yet so little time to work on my goals.

If I have been out with Vicky, talked to my mum, gone walking with my dad or helped out my brother, I can forgive myself for shirking on my goals.

Manifesto of Perfection – Goal Setting Month

The parents meet the parents

It has been seven months since I started a relationship.

When I started writing the Manifesto of Perfection accepted that I would be spending my life alone.  My previous past experiences had put a distrust in women – so I could never see myself getting into a long term relationship.

Then I met Vicky and my perception changed. Continue reading “The parents meet the parents”

January 2015: Goals Update

A week ago I reviewed my initial goals that I set in September.  As part of this process I gave a bit of time to think how I would develop, add and drop goals – as appropriate.  This has now been updated and I will be working on these tasks for the next three months, where I will review my progress.

The Goals

It contains some new ideas, old ideas that I have been able to articulate more clearly what I am supposed to be doing and old ideas – which I did not get round to doing for various reasons.  I have grouped them based on the categories I use with this blog: Continue reading “January 2015: Goals Update”
