3 Minute Monday – Discomfort, Photographs & Enlightenment

3 Minute Monday Hi friend, I’ve had a hard week. I know it’s great to do something you love for work. But graft is still graft. The effort that goes in behind the scenes to discover, schedule, research, record, edit & publish 3 episodes per week is ungodly. It doesn’t matter how much I enjoy […]

3 Minute Monday- Inner Voices, Porn & Clickbait

3 Minute Monday Hi friend, Some questions for you… Would you let a friend talk to you in the way that your own inner voice does? Seriously. Take a moment to consider what you would think of that friend. Are they compassionate? Supportive? Reassuring? Wise? Stable? Loyal? Or are they negative, vindictive, critical, sly and […]

3 Minute Monday- Memory Loss, Gaslighting & Enquiries

3 Minute Monday Hi friend, I’ve not been feeling myself for the last few months. I couldn’t really put my finger on it but I knew something was off. I was constantly slightly tired and drowsy. Found myself heading to bed at 9.30pm every night, shattered. My thoughts were super cloudy and muddled. Thinking is […]

3 Minute Monday- Misery, Simplicity and Faeces

3 Minute Monday Hi friend, One of the easiest ways to work out how to improve your mood is a technique called inversion. Working out what makes someone happy seems like a complex, mammoth task. But making a happy person depressed seems much simpler. So let’s say you want to make a happy person miserable, […]

3 Minute Monday- Torture, Precision & Sympathy

3 Minute Monday Hi friend, I want to make a case for why you should use the most precise language you can. And why you should always be expanding your vocabulary. You see, the things you think don’t take form until you say them out loud. They’re a notion while they’re in your head. This […]

3 Minute Monday- Excellence, Machiavelli & Leftists

3 Minute Monday Hi friend, I’m thinking about excellence this week. “If you look after the pennies, the pounds will look after themselves” sounds like a throwaway line from your grandmother, but the sentiment is unbelievably accurate. Think about it this way… Any large accomplishment is essentially just a sequence of smaller accomplishments, made up […]

3 Minute Monday- Breath, Harassment & Wealth

3 Minute Monday Hi friend, I’ve had this thought in my head for months and haven’t had chance to bring it up on an episode yet. So you’re going to get it instead. Like some sort of conceptual pressure-release valve. Directly in the face. How fortunate for you. Imagine that you only had one breath […]

3 Minute Monday- Cravings, Protein & Pennies

3 Minute Monday Hi friend, I’ve been thinking about cravings and doing difficult things this week. One of the most interesting studies I’ve seen was conducted on air hostesses who smoke. Two different groups were studied. One who was flying Dubai to France (around a 6 hour flight). And another flying Dubai to New York […]

3 Minute Monday- My Brand New TEDx Talk

3 Minute Monday Hi friend, My TEDx Talk just went live! The outcome of a very chaotic 10 weeks of writing, remembering, forgetting, remembering again, rehearsing and performing. I really love the topic, it’s super meaningful to me and if you like what I do, you should enjoy it too. If you have chance to […]

3 Minute Monday- Stoicism, Testicles & Revenge

3 Minute Monday Hi friend, The Dichotomy Of Control is one of the core practices of Stoicism. Also called “The Stoic Fork”. The Stoics believed that one of the primary reasons we suffer is because we confuse things which are outside of our control with those which are within our control. Common examples of uncontrollables […]
