A long time…

Many years ago I was on a night out with University friends.  After many drinks I sat settled in the corner, I got talking with a girl on my course and some how we got to discussing her traveler background.  This led to the revelation that she had the ‘sight’ – the skill of being able to see into the future.

“Would you like me to read your palm?” she said.

I laughed and said sure… I wasn’t quite sure if she was actually serious, but next thing I know she grabbed my hand and started to read my palm…. Continue reading

System: The Power of Three

I have had a bit of a hiatus from posting recently.

Since starting the blog I have been well disciplined to ensure that there has been new content every week (or more) because when I started I knew that I did not want to be one of the those blogs that post inconsistently and started with one of those weak, pathetic opener of:

“Sorry I haven’t post in a while guys, my life has been super hectic right now…”

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.

Towards the end of September I set myself some targets.

Now it is a New Year, I did not want to come up some random new objectives, but continue working on what I had set.  I found 2014, one of the most fulfilling years of my life for improvement and want this to continue.  So I reviewed what I set, with the plan to realistically develop my goals: Continue reading

Help friend get laid

I set some post mid year resolutions because I wanted to get my self-improvement goals back on track after a slump. I have used SMART objectives to set out how I intend to achieve my goals.  However as this goal is a unique situation and does not relate personally to my own well-being I decided to just write what on earth possessed me to include this weird objective.

Okay, so what is my rational for this creepy objective? Continue reading

Stop looking after my friends so much

I set some post mid year resolutions because I wanted to get my self-improvement goals back on track after a slump. I detail how I will go about achieving my goal using SMART objectives, with a contingency plan for if I am not able to do this

Why have I set this?

During my birthday I shared my Blackpool story with a mutual friend.  They helped me reach peace with the endless guilt I had felt all those years.

I realised that generally – I carry my friends too much.  I constantly find jobs for them to apply for that they never bother to do, I pay for drinks and meals because I make more money than them, which I only do because I am willing to work harder and I go out of my way to give them lifts.
