His Answer Was Shocking

His Answer Was Shocking When people pre-phrase a sentence with ‘I think…’ the chances are they haven’t really thought at all. In 2002 I attended The International Conference on Thinking in Harrogate.  I’d started my career by speaking at the Singapore Conference in 1997 and was excited to hear that the UK was hosting the […]

Why You Won’t Stick With It

Go on ‘stick with it’ they say. Good advice?  Well actually… no. Sticking with something can become counterproductive after a while. And it’s sooner than you think. In fact, clever boffins have worked out something called ‘Optimal Stopping Theory’  ….. Which basically means the amount of time you’ll stick with something before you stop -make […]

Everyone Is Useless

It’s true, everyone is useless …  at something. Why beat yourself up because you can’t do something? There’s too much pressure these days to discover what you aren’t good at and then get better at it. It starts at school. If you’re lacking at a skill, they encourage you to do more of it.

My Most Important Daily Ritual

When I researched my book The Edge, I asked dozens of super successful people if they practiced a daily routine. It’s no surprise that most did.
