Chestnuts roasting….

  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas as Perry Como memorably sang. But don’t let up on the work. It’s immensely satisfying, I think, to take off the holiday knowing that you have put in a good month’s work and not “goofed off” because it’s the festive season. To be fair, those of you that sell turkeys or toys, trees or tinsel will not need any encouragement to get busy. But the rest of us it is too easy to slow down and lose two weeks of the year to idleness and over indulgence. I’m not saying that we should be noses to the grindstone over Christmas but I like to keep on top of things and even spend some time planning next year whilst everyone else is sleeping off the mince pies and brandy. After all, in late December the light is failing by mid-afternoon and there is almost guaranteed to be a day or so of lousy weather. Why not get some stuff done and hope the next day is sunny and calm and you can get out for a long walk in the fresh air? January is my busiest time of the year so I like to feel rested and refreshed coming into the tax return season, but also without any nagging feeling that there are “things to be done” that I could have got out of the way earlier instead of adding to the headache of dealing with people who could have had their books sorted out months ago but kept putting it off. Newsflash: time doesn’t run more slowly in January even... read more

Black Friday is here….and?

It’s black Friday in the shops at the moment and they are falling over themselves to get you to buy stuff you probably don’t need and up to last week didn’t want. Or if you are being cynical palm people off with last years stuff which they want rid of anyway because it’s taking up space. I always used to have a look in case there was some shiny and (nearly) new thing that last year was too expensive for me but now is not. But there almost never is. Stuff you don’t need or want is still stuff you don’t need or want even if it’s cheap. So let’s talk about putting prices up. As well as Black Friday we have the other harbingers of Yuletide: adverts for perfumes and aftershave, watches and jewelry. In particular one caught my eye. A jeweler whose advert in essence was; “if you don’t give us thousands of your hard earned money in exchange for a glittery bit of rock you clearly don’t love her.” Really? I hate people trying to guilt me into doing something but it did set me thinking. Diamonds are just glittery rock, perfume is just a nice smell, so many things that are very expensive are totally decoupled from their actual “worth”. But if you can get someone to pay extra for fish eggs from a special fish, smelly fungus just because a pig’s found it or wine because it fizzy AND comes from a particular region of France (like no-one else can make fizzy plonk?), then why not. What can you do that could be sold... read more

Not so smart phones

  Just checked my mobile phone, no missed calls or texts or emails. Loads of whatsapp notifications but I can ignore them all if I wish (and I generally do; I like to keep up but I can ask people how their holiday / concert / night out went when I see them) Same goes for Facebook (I use it to keep up to date with two friends who live in Brum and Southampton, otherwise I ignore it) and I’m not even on Snapchat or Instagram). According to research an hour or two on social media is on average beneficial to our wellbeing (humans are after all social animals) , but after that people start to feel more negative (trolls, rants, comparing themselves to globetrotting party animals with beach bodies and such like). So perhaps I should indulge a little, or maybe I’m just grumpy. Either way it’s only an average; so long as I have actual real friends who I can go out with and actually really talk to then I figure that I can leave SM alone most of the time. The biggest problem with being glued to a small screen (apart from walking into people or crashing the car) is the massive time suck that it represents. (And I do appreciate the irony of using a blog to go on about this.) The hours spent on watching cat videos and liking people’s shoes could also be spent on learning a useful life skill, one that will bring fulfilment, entertain you, make life easier or further your business or career. Lots to choose from and (again rather... read more

On days like these

Che bello If you’ve seen the iconic film “The Italian Job” (original not remake) you will remember the classic opening sequence where an orange Lamborghini Miura is driven along a twisty alpine road with Matt Monro’s silky tones singing “On days like these”. Perfect (up until the tunnel obviously). Now, whether old movies and old cars are your cup of tea or not, the thing is that life isn’t really about having stuff, it’s really about experiencing stuff. Happiness (according to researchers) is felt two ways. Firstly, how are you feeling right now, and secondly, how you remember feeling. The first kind is rather independent of money. Once you have enough to live a comfortable life extra cash doesn’t equal extra happiness. However, the second kind (called experiential happiness) does increase as you become wealthier. That’s all about looking back on what you had or did. This time apparently, the more the better. So you have two options. One is to get a lot richer so you can do more and buy more. Two is to learn to properly live in the moment so it genuinely doesn’t bother you. Both of these are, however, hard to achieve. The second especially so, although long term it offers the best results and is entirely inflation and recession proof. A third way though might be to select an ideal lifestyle and then look for ways to “hack” this that are more affordable. Then you can enjoy the moment AND look back on the awesome things you got up to. The secret is to work out what you REALLY want, rather than what... read more
