I really love my job, it is probably the best one I have ever had.
It is strange because when I got the new job it was a step up from the old one. I have more responsibility and more money. But unlike my other job I am back at the bottom – basically I am the office junior and have to do all the tedious work that comes with that. Continue reading “Competition in the work place”
If you want to see improvement in your life, the most essential thing that you need to do is ensure you stick to a regular routine

Over the last several years I have been on a mission to increase my confidence. I am better than I used to be but still have some bad habits. Until recently I was blissfully unaware until I got some feedback from my last job interview
“you know your stuff but you need to show more confidence in yourself”
This was pretty surprising as I thought I was coming across confident. Upon reflection I realise that there are areas that I can focus on to make myself appear more confident.

When I woke up and realised that I had gained a lot of weight, I knew it wasn’t going to be easy – I didn’t have that same motivation or self-control and I certainly wasn’t as fit as I used to be.
I had gone up to 14 stone 6 lbs (91.4 kg). This shocked me and I vowed to step-up my exercise and look after myself better. So since the middle of February I have probably being a bit too obsessive about my weight loss. Continue reading “Sweating over weight loss”
I read a number of blogs about many peoples first experiences with the gym, or from the perspective of someone who has lived a unhealthy lifestyle and is trying to find a new way.
Many of these are the fears they have – that people are looking down on them because of how they look, how quickly they exhaust themselves to others, or their perceived weaknesses.
As a 15 + year gym vet I will let you onto a little secret:
No one cares…

I got to a point in my life where I realised the only guarantee you have is what you have today is what you have got tomorrow (subject to any major disaster).
If you take no actions, risks or accept responsibility for your own fate – you will still most likely be in the same position. Continue reading “Where am I next year?”
This year I made a cake for my birthday.
Being aware of many of the activities I do (many of which I highlight in this blog).
Someone remarked “You’re a man of many talents”
I guess I am. But the reason I am is because I make the effort to apply myself and try. Continue reading “A man of many talents”
This week has been my most testing time in my new job.
I have been optimistic and upbeat since starting, but this is the first week where I seem to have been fighting the forces of negativity from all sides.
With people leaving, going on holiday or being off sick, things look light on the ground. Continue reading “Fighting the Forces of Negativity”
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…”

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.
