Why I Don't Have a Five Year Plan

Before I became a parent I lived very much for the future. Short term I lived for the weekend and the nights out. Longer term I was all about promotions, property, and marriage proposals. It was all part of the 5 year plan.

Lost for Words

I haven't written for ages. I've written almost nothing this year, apart from work-related items and to-do lists. It's not so much that I gave up writing for Lent as that writing gave up on me... there's been so much going on that I have struggled to find the words to quantify it all.

If You Died Tomorrow, How Would You Look Back on Your Life?

Our time here is short. Stating the bleeding obvious but time, once lost, is gone forever. Why then do we sometimes treat it with such disrespect? Why do we put things off until we retire, or until next year, or trudge through the weekdays, yearning for the weekend?

Studying as a Grown-Up

I started a post-graduate course in September and this week was hand-in week. I refer to my course as 'grown-up school' for the benefit of my children who are very little and don't have much grasp of the idea of adults studying things.

Killed By Busy-ness

Yet we are teaching our children to be busy. Busy-ness is good! It shows that we are moving forward (to a faster end?). It means that we will be first in the (meaningless) rat race. It means that we will win (a bag of sand which is your bones at death).

Getting Your Work Groove On: How to Gain More Control

Okay I understand that most people can't become a yoga instructor and make a good living. And beanie hats are rarely going to pay the mortgage. But what about instead of plotting an escape we think about how to work differently in our current jobs?

Understanding African Time

Why time is such a sensitive issue is because it defines our awareness of space and others. As the world keeps shrinking in front of me, I feel like perception and use of time remain the few concepts resistant to globalisation. Time is where globalisation stops. It puts communication and adaptability of human species to test.

The World Through a Child's Eyes

I'm sure most of us have witnessed totally inappropriate comments from children which often seem to be voiced at full volume in the most public of places - for example, "Why has that woman got a moustache?" in the supermarket queue. There is nothing malicious in such observations, just curiosity. No offence intended in the slightest.

The Irreversible Reality of Time

For years the years seem to have been passing by more rapidly than the last. As a child, I remember adults commenting on how quickly I had grown, and how time was flying, but I never really got it.

Instead of taking 5 minutes to build one chart and being stuck with one insight, you'd see all possible insights in a short amount of time. What time trends is your data hiding from you?

Just making a few changes to the way you organise your time can enable you to be more efficient, reduce your stress levels and result in you having more free time.

Racing Against Time

If life flies by this quickly, we need to make the most of it. Take every opportunity that comes long, as you might not get that chance again. I'm pretty sure that when I look back on my life, I'm far more likely to regret the days I wasted doing nothing.

This is probably one of the hardest articles that I've written, simply because stress is highly personable and there are so many different external factors that can influence the stress-state; however with this being said, when in that state there are some quick and easy things that you can do.

About Time: The Day I Left My Daughter

About fifteen minutes ago (so it feels like, but according to records it was September 1992) I landed at Lancaster University as a fresher. I can still see it as a film, smell the cleaning fluid corridors, taste the tears, terrified in my bare room, burying into my cuddly panda for comfort. Time to be an adult.

We (Don't) Have All the Time in the World

There really is no reason for being tardy. So to all those people out there who are forever late, you better have a half decent excuse. Or have just dropped dead. As excuses go, I reckon that's as good as any.

Learning Something New... Everyday!

We rarely have time these days to stop, to pause, to think and more importantly to observe things around us. The smart (or dumb) phone, depending on your point of view, has drawn our attention and taken up even those few extra minutes of spare time that we have.

Slumped Over Your Desk? You and Everyone Else.

The business world seems to have woken up in the last 48 hours. It's September, the schools have re-opened and people are sleepwalking back to work after a summer break. But just because we are physically back-at-work, it doesn't mean we are all mentally and emotionally there - the lights are on, but nobody is home in many cases.
