It’s a cold Saturday in London, as I write this, but the kind of day, that makes you feel good to be alive, and aware of what’s really important. I spent the morning with my mum, cooking lunch and looking at what the plan was coming.
I caught the trailer for a major TV show tonight, and realised that one of the stars is a friend who went travelling a few years ago. We met when I helped a mutual friend with preparations for London fashion week, and with photography which is one of my passions. It’s funny how small the world can be.
I’m also reminded again of the lesson that seems to come and get real, then often, get forgotten – Everything Happens for a Reason. It’s all too easy to get fixated on the expected results, and what we think will happen.
Today has seen – an email from a business partner on new start up opportunities in London (which is one of our passions), possible venture capital funding for several projects through extended networks, as well as the need to get robust teams in place to run the foundations of what many people are building.
Sometimes we’re ready to take these “omens” or “signs” and run with them, sometimes they just go by. Either way, the fact that our routes to where we are now are filled with chance encounters, twists and turns, is hard to escape. I published The Success Spiral earlier in the year, and so far the first few thousand people to review it have noticed a big impact (though subtle).

I’m allowing myself this moment of lucid thought, as today is intended to be a “day off”, though as I’ve shared a few times, I don’t believe that “balance” actually exists in the conventional pie-chart hours on/hours off approach.
When you’re playing full out, and able to go with the flow, then you can take advantage of what comes up much more easily. The caveat being.. it’s important to know when to say NO.. and that’s something that many of us, don’t like to do..
WIth that said.. I’m going to go follow up on some earlier commitments and continue to see where this spiral rollercoaster takes us tomorrow..
