Problems, Problems, Problems!

It’s always a really big deal for me when something just doesn’t work right!  I am seriously so non techy that problems cause me to fall at the first hurdle every time!  I would rather not, I feel I am a problem solver, but techy things just go straight over my head. So my latest …

The Power of Discipline

The Power of Discipline When our ancestors started thinking about life and tried to understand how to make the best out of it plenty of virtues arose from their thinking.

Success!

Of course when asked the question ‘Are You Successful?’ you need to understand what the question means and how success is measured both by you and the person asking.  For example if someone asked me if I was successful I would most definitely say yes, but they may be talking about a variety of different …

Y Is For Yesterday

Yesterday is very much a part of who we are.  We can learn so much from the experiences of all our yesterdays, but it does not do to dwell on those experiences too much.  Take what is useful from them and place the rest at the back of our memories.  Often too much time can …
