The Skunk Works

The Skunk Works

To take bold steps, to achieve audacious goals, and to cope with rapidly changing times – for me, every organisation, and individual, should be creating their own skunkworks. What do I mean by ‘skunkworks’? To explain its name, I need to go back to World War II. As air battles raged and America felt the […]

Is Monogamy Bad For Your Health?

Is Monogamy Bad For Your Health?

It has been a while since I have written a post that takes me beyond my own comfort zone. It may take many others beyond theirs, as well! Not since I took on writing on the subject of religion have I felt challenged like this. Monogamy and marriage are, for the majority of people, an […]

Fixing The Broken Triangle

Fixing The Broken Triangle

There is a broken triangle in my community – and in most communities around the world, in fact. The relationship between people, politics and the media is broken. Nobody is happy. Each one is dissatisfied with the other. And the trouble is, the breakdown is getting worse and worse. Our communities are as unhappy and […]

Soft Landings

Soft Landings

Just over a week ago, I ticked another item off my bucket list. I went up in a hot air balloon. One thing we were lucky enough to achieve on our adventure was a soft landing. A beautifully soft landing. As I go through some of the craziest weeks of my life, I do start […]

The End Of Government?

The End Of Government?

There is a really interesting debate going on in my island nation community of Guernsey at the moment. There is large review of government tax and spending. There is a suggestion that the cost of government will need to move from 25% to 28% of GDP. Our government rightly argues that ours is already one […]

Thinking and Feeling

Thinking and Feeling

There are three questions I like to ask myself whenever I have a big decision to make: What do I think about this? What do I feel about this? Why is there a difference? At one time, I did not imagine there could be any possible difference in my answers to the first two questions. […]

2 years

2 years

It is just under two years since I publicly declared in a blog post that I was going to change the world. It is just under two years since I took the leap, left my comfort zone and lived up to what I am truly capable of. I wrote that post after completely rewiring how […]

The Alleviation of Wealth

The Alleviation of Wealth

I have a problem with the general perception of poverty in the world today. People seem to think it’s all about money. It’s not. Over the past couple of decades, I have seen the damage caused by the poverty industry, from the unintended consequences of aid programmes. I have interacted with many charity leaders who […]

The Global Brain

The Global Brain

Something that has fascinated me throughout my life is the human mind. One of the real tragedies I have discovered is that the human mind holds us back more than anything else. The human mind has not had a serious upgrade in over 50,000 years.  No matter who we are, how powerful our position or […]

The Rise of the Mischief Maker

The Rise of the Mischief Maker

I love mischief. I always have done. I feel like it’s part of my DNA; I can’t help but want to cause it. I see it in my son, too: that cheeky smile and glint in his eyes, and it makes me smile every time. I find so engaging and disarming. In the world of […]
