Keep Laughing!

Today I’m going to write about something really serious and important. Laughter. [insert canned laughter here] The older I get, the more I realise just how important laughter and comedy is in life. As lame as the cliche is, laughter really is the best medicine....

Stop Waiting for Other People

I recently had a chat with a friend who has filmmaking ambitions. He’s itching to create some projects. But something he said hit me. “I can’t do anything at the moment because it relies on other people being available.” It made me think how...

Letting Go of Justice…

While on my recent “de-cluttering mission”, I came across several things that, for whatever reason, I’d been holding on to for years. In this particular case, they happened to be documents connected to unjust events that occurred to me. I’m not...

The Key Problem With News

I’ve previously written about how the news makes you stupid. To recap that article, my point was that news is given undeserved credibility in society, when it’s often nothing but a source of negativity designed to manipulate emotions and alter your...

The ‘Attention to Detail’ Fallacy

How many times have we heard the phrase: “attention to detail”? If you haven’t noticed, then you obviously don’t have the attention to detail that “attention to detail” requires… Yes, my brain hurts too. But seriously, this...

Are You Obsessed With Your Tool?

Recently I’ve caught myself making the same mistake I seem to make from time-to-time (and no, that’s not leaving the house without pants on…). The mistake I’m referring to is an overemphasis on the tools I’m using, rather than the content...

The Art of Non-Finishing

Take the Plunge

Alright, this is slightly embarrassing to admit, but here goes… I’m a big girl … when it comes to jumping into unheated, outdoor swimming pools. I always have been. I make myself feel better by realising that it seems to be some sort of genetic...

  Recent personal experience has made me think more carefully about the concept of “going into business”. So often we are sold the dream of working for ourselves. Either we see one of those dodgy “work from home” scams advertised in our...

Well, another new year has started. And, as usual, many people tend to start talking about “resolutions” and “goals” again. After 2 weeks, they usually stop. I was going to write about a different type of goal-setting this time, one inspired by...

Making Money from Passion Projects

  Recently I got in touch with someone who I hadn’t spoken to in several years. I was interested to see what he was up to. It was good to hear he was still pursuing work and projects in the TV / video / multimedia industries. And it was good to hear he was...

10 Fun Ways To Find Your Purpose

  One of the biggest causes of stress in our lives can be the feeling of not knowing where we’re ultimately going. Once we look beyond basic survival issues, we start asking ourselves: what are we doing with our lives? What SHOULD we be doing instead? What...
