The Big Think
July 8th 2020 by
‘What were you thinking?’ ‘Ermm, nothing’ Ever had that conversation? Have you found yourself saying: ‘Eeeh, I haven’t got time to think’. OK, maybe without the ‘Eeeh’. Thinking time is now seen as a luxury. Something for later – for ‘When I get a minute.’ Deep thinking time is put off for years; stored up for that once-in-a-lifetime visit to the Peruvian foothills. But only after […]read more
The Biggest Hump
July 2nd 2020 by
If a Wednesday is hump day… And the 15th is the half-month hump (closer to the next payday than the last one)… Then this must be hump-year-day. From today, you’re closer to 2021 than you are to 2019. So, how’s your 2020 turning out? Eeek! Who could have predicted it. So how about a little bit of certainty in your life? Yes, Michael! The best […]read more
The Dalai Lama said this ….
June 25th 2020 by
Everyone knows that meditation, stilling the mind and getting into a deep relaxed state is good for you. The problem is, it’s boring Or at least it can be boring. Even using visualisation techniques, Such as imagining a slow-burning candle or a blossoming flower. It can quickly lead to distraction. Plus, what’s the point? It takes years to really reap the […]read more
I was embarrassed
June 10th 2020 by
I’d reached my mid 40s and successfully managed to avoid it. Then one day, I can’t recall exactly how, I suddenly found myself joining a yoga class. I was the only short, overweight, bloke in the room. And obviously I hadn’t received the LuLuLemon memo so turned up wearing a Newcastle United strip. There were many good reasons why I should have made my excuses and left. After all, this was never going to be a specialist subject of mine. There’s an argument (promoted […]read more
The Impossible Jigsaw
June 4th 2020 by
We were running short on lockdown jigsaws. So Mrs Hepp decided to dig deep and rekindle one we started years ago. The outside border was complete and safely stored in the ‘jig roll‘, the remaining pieces in a bag. So why impossible? No box lid. And as much as we wracked our brains, we could not […]read more
Who moved my….

Phase One – Panic and Preparation. Dunkirk Spirit. We can do this. All in this together. Phase Two – New Ways of Working. Zoom. See you in two months. Lower expectations. Date Nights and YouTube Quizzes. Phase Three – Back to Normal. Except there is no normal. ‘But I can’t stay like this!’. Phased return. Look at […]read more
When £0 is still too much
May 18th 2020 by
I received a complaint this morning. Which is fine. I wrote a book on customer service and was happy to include the cliché ‘Complaints Are A Gift’. This was an interesting one. It was from a member of a pop-up group I’ve been running over the last week called ‘Write That Book’. The idea was to run a 4-day challenge to take […]read more
Are you having crazy dreams too?
May 13th 2020 by
Every morning, I wake up relieved. Relieved they were just dreams. Not that they were nightmares. Just weird. Very weird. My mind is whirring at the moment. I did a little research and found that if you write down all the stuff that’s been going on, your dreams will be less whacky. Something to do with the brain needing to put less energy into […]read more
Thought transference now proven
May 6th 2020 by
If I were to say to you that thought transference is now proven and that you can actually pick up on what somebody thinks, or someone could pick up on what you are thinking, what would you say? What if I were to suggest to you that thought transference through time is also available… Where a thought that somebody had 10 years ago could appear clearly in […]read more
Stop The Routine
April 30th 2020 by
A few weeks ago, when we went into lockdown, most of the advice was to ‘create a routine’. Six weeks on and isn’t it just starting to be boring? I’ve got some new advice. Stop The Routine! Mix it up. Break it up. If you’ve been going fast, go slow. If you’ve been chilling out, do something serious. If you’ve […]read more
