One-step fix for spaghetti brain [ blog post]
*
*
*

Spaghetti brain. That’s what I have today.
(And I have Carol, whom I met a couple of weekends ago at the Poodle to Pitbull Pet Biz Bootcamp to thank for that term)
You know when your thoughts are scattered, you have a bazillion and one things to do, and you’re not where you usually are so you can’t easily dive into a bucket of tea!
Today, I’m working from Joe’s offices, I have lots of calls booked in, and I have to perambulate a looooooong way to the kettle.
So my day started later than usual.
So I’m only now emailing you.
And I have what’s technically known as spaghetti brain.
But all this just highlights how well my scheduled day usually works, you see.
One of my calls was with someone who Borrowed My Brain this morning, and I’m going to share with you one big tip I gave her: *

Just a wee bridge today. Some days are less flexy than others... progress is made in tiny beetle steps

This #curlywurly, the final Curlywurly, hid well and valiantly. But it's no match for my chocolate appetite.

The Curlywurly game [ blog post]
*
*
*

Today, I am fizzing with excitement because Joe is coming home! I haven’t seen him for almost two weeks.
He’s been in Germany for two weeks, and then when he came home at the weekend, I was up north in Sunderland presenting at my friend Dom’s brilliant Poodle to Pitbull Pet Business Bootcamp.

So we’ve been like inept relay runners missing the tag.
But while he was home at the weekend, Joe created a game for me.
It’s a brilliant game, because each day I get rewarded with a Curlywurly (a British chocolate bar from the 1980s (not an out of date chocolate bar, a relic of my childhood) a living fossil chocolate, if you will)

The game is:
Find the Curlywurly!
If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you’ll have seen the ingenius hiding places he came up with. I have one left to find, and something tells me it’s going to be tricky…
It’s been really good fun, and it’s lessened the amount I miss him. A bit.
And it got me thinking about keeping your customers occupied. See, not that I’d forget about him at all ever, but hiding the Curlywurlys kept Joe at the top of my mind when I was feeling a bit lonely in the evenings.
It was a little slice of Joe humour and thoughtfulness from afar.
How often do you keep in touch with your customers and clients and prospects?

The scariest thing in the world [ blog post]
*
*
*

I know what you’re afraid of.
It’s the same thing I’m afraid of. The same thing every-bloody-body is afraid of.

You’re afraid of not knowing. Not knowing what comes next.
Not knowing what’ll happen if you do this thing or that thing.
Not knowing whether hiring this writer or that web designer is the right decision.
Not knowing enough about the thing you’re about to spend money on.
And I have the answer.
Study it.
Even if you’re not going to do it yourself.
You can never know too much, and the more you know, the less scary it is.

Smash the monster under your bed [ blog post]
*
*
*

You know when you were little and there was a monster in your bedroom?
You’d hide under the covers — because somehow your bedcovers have magical powers — and everything would be alright.

Okay, you couldn't really breathe and it got so hot you thought you might explode, but the monster couldn't get you.

Mostly, I don't hide under the bed from actual monsters anymore (unless I've just watched a scary film). These days, the monster is the sheer volume of stuff I have to do tomorrow and sometimes the best way to deal with it seems to be to hide under the covers.

Amiright?

Because no matter how much some of us might look like we have our shit together, let me tell you it's not like that all the time.

I've gone from scattered shit all over the place all the time, to mostly under control with a semi-regular let's stay in bed today day.

So I thought I'd share with you what I do when I feel like hiding under the covers.

I make a list! * *
