I’ve read almost all of Malcolm Gladwell’s books – The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, David and Goliath. The only one I have not read is What the Dog Saw, which for completeness, I’ve just decided I should read. I’ve also recently enjoyed his podcast, Revisionist History that I wrote about here, so was excited about his new book Talking to Strangers. Continue reading “Talking to Strangers – Malcolm Gladwell”
Some new podcasts I’ve enjoyed over the last few months.
You may have seen/heard of the book – Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup. This is the podcast version and an easy entry into the story. Continue reading “Podcasts you should listen to – August 2019”
I read a post by Mark Manson that said there are 2 approaches to improving yourself-
1) The self-improvement junkie. The junkie has this constant gnawing feeling that there’s still some magic tip or technique or piece of information out there that will create their next big breakthrough Continue reading “How do you use Self Help?”
One of my first posts on this blog was about the Imposter syndrome (I now know it should be called a “phenomenon”, not a syndrome).
The imposter phenomenon is that however experienced or successful you are, there’s always the doubt and feeling at one day the fraud police will tap you on the shoulder and tell you that you’ve been found out and they know that you don’t know what you’re doing.

Rich Roll recently did a podcast with James Clear about his book Atomic Habits . It’s a great listen. I find it so interesting why sometimes making a change is easy and sometimes it seems impossible. I enjoyed it so much I want to give you a little breakdown of it. Here are a few snippets from the podcast –

I found out on Wednesday that I will be running the 2019 London Marathon. The place come through my company and will be running for WaterAid, a charity closely aligned with the company. Continue reading “London Calling! The 2019 VLM is on!”
I’ve seen a few things over the last few weeks stating people saying-
“I can’t wait till the New Year so I can relax/get more sleep/start training/sort my life”
I have thought the exact same thing myself. Things have been fairly hectic recently and putting stuff off until January is a great bit of procrastination. Continue reading “Why wait? Get a head start!”
I’ve been struggling recently. For one reason or another, I’ve missed a lot of training sessions. I’ve not been eating so well, put some weight on and lost a chunk of fitness. When I do train or run, I go berserk for a few days, then do f*ck all for a week. This has been the cycle of the past month or so. Continue reading “More Consistent with your Consistency”
