Continuous Improvement, Marginal gains.

Continuous Improvement, Marginal gains.

Do we really have a choice to NOT search for continuous improvement? This title has been inspired by a post I saw on Linkedin from an industrial engineering expert. In it he talks about the squeeze on profits from multiple directions in the modern commercial world. Dave Harnett highlights the need for continuous, enterprise-wide improvements to shave spending here and there and protect the company’s bottom line in the process. Team...

Planning isn’t a dirty word!

The title for this piece mentions the dreaded P word, planning. It helps point us toward an important aspect of the season… Not just Christmas dinner timing; which accompaniments to accommodate the most ‘select’ eaters coming to stay or optimal christmas pudding creation time but also likely nap times for all generations visiting. Planning and timing are for life not just for Christmas (but especially at xmas?) The...

positivity, because you’re worth it!

It’s been a kind of a busy season including the most recent piece in my health and wellbeing puzzle which involved a welcome shot of positivity… and an overnight stay in den Haag last month. Most if not all the posts in this blog from the last year and more, address something in life which can be adapted or adjusted to make our life a little bit better. Life hacks? Hardly, as I lack the dedication to attach scientific rigour to...

stress and pedalogate!

My lack of speed in getting a post out allows me to refer to stress and pedalogate and roll a couple of subjects together that I think are related. One of them has a more English sensibility to it and the other is global in its appeal. Both, I feel are worth thinking about a bit more thoughtfully as human beings. The first is Pedalogate! The British media had a field day when the newspapers were full of stories that highlighted some...
