April – May 2019

Phew – a really busy few weeks taking care of several projects. You know what they say, if you want something doing – ask a busy person!

My charity client – managed to get quite a bit of publicity to highlight their very good cause and as a result of this some good things are happening for them. Watch this space..

My Norwich business client – took me to a reception at The Mansion House in the City as his young company are starting to get noticed in financial circles. Happy to part of it.

Reepham Music Festival – the early bird ticket sales smashed through all previous years records! It is going to be a great weekend in August.

Politically – I am acting as Agent for 25 district council candidates. It’s stressful and worrying as the national situation is bad and people, quite understandably, are really cross. We’ll see what happens in a few weeks time….

I’ve been helping a Long Stratton based Customer Experience company organise and promote a Legal conference at Duxford. Thanks to David Fieldhouse at Archant for organising a great piece on this in the EDP Business Supplement at the end of April.

March 2019 –

Had a couple of weeks that were tough and then it all came good so though this was appropriate:

“Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.”

Theodore Isaac Rubin

January 2019 – how to keep to those resolutions!

1. Make only one resolution. Chances of success are greater when you focus on changing just one aspect of your life.

2. Take some time out over a few days to think about what you want to achieve.

3. Avoid previous resolutions. If it didn’t work before for you, chances are it won’t work again!

4. Think about what you really want out of life. Don’t follow others!

5. Break your goal into a series of steps, maybe make some sub-goals that are measurable.

6. Tell your friends and family about your goals.

7. To stay motivated, maybe make a checklist of how achieving your resolution will help you.

8. Give yourself a reward whenever you achieve a step which will give you  a sense of progress. Flowers, lunch with a friend, massage —

9. If its helpful – you could do a spreadsheet or stick some graphs or pictures on your fridge. Or set reminders on your phone.

10. Expect to revert to your old habits from time to time. Treat any failure as a temporary hiccup rather than a reason to give up altogether.
