23 Laws of Interesting by Hiut Denim.

This is a fantastic blog from Hiut Denim based on the premise that "Interesting things happen when you do interesting things." Outlined in their blog below are the circumstances that will most certainly help to make life more interesting and in turn open you up to more interesting opportunities. 

#16, Interesting and happiness are good mates.

Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.
— David Hieatt (inspired by Russell Davies)

#19, Say yes when you would say no.

In order to keeps things interesting, saying yes to something you would normally say no to. It opens up new connections. Connections that you wouldn’t normally have made. And, sometimes, they are the best.
— David Hieatt (inspired by Russell Davies)

This is so true to the life I have led so far. For all of the exciting, really interesting opportunities that have presented themselves to me, either in my dreams or in reality, for the most part I have tried to just say yes. In fact, 'Just Say Yes' is the subject of the talk Ross and I gave at The Do Lectures in 2013. Check that out here


Buy 23 Laws of Interesting as a poster here from the Do Lectures store. 

This Manifesto of a Doer is also another great gift for 15.00 - bargain.

Screw Finding Your Passion

You already found your passion, you’re just ignoring it. Seriously, you’re awake 16 hours a day, what the fuck do you do with your time? You’re doing something, obviously. You’re talking about something. There’s some topic or activity or idea that dominates a significant amount of your free time, your conversations, your web browsing, and it dominates them without you consciously pursuing it or looking for it.

Found this excellent article by a fantastic blogger called Mark Manson called Screw Finding Your Passion. It's a great 7 minute read. Read it! 

Screw Finding Your Passion

Where does the time go?

When I set up my website and blog I made a non verbal promise to myself to keep it up to date with regular posts. Now three months have flown by and I haven't written a single post since I was at The Do Lectures in Wales.

It looks sloppy but also so so much has happened since my last entry that it's going to be a struggle to remember all the highlights. Here's a few for sure though. 

  • Cookery School in Padstow 
  • The DO Lectures Costa Rica 
  • Buying tickets to Ironman this November
  • The Build up of The DO Lectures USA
  • Producing DO Lectures USA // California holiday 
  • Housesitting // Caravan 
  • Leadership course
  • Future Plans bubbling away  
Thank you to Helena Price for this photo she took at The DO Lectures USA last week

Now that The Do Lectures event planning is over I'm focusing entirely on the Ironman race which looms in Mexico. That plus full time work at The Scarlet, moving from our small touring caravan into a house and spending time with my wonderful hubby too of course. Life is always abundant and I roll with all the opportunities that come my way.

Over the next couple of months I'm going to do some things which I hope will help guide me to a more focused direction towards my future.

My friend is teaching me the Getting Things Done model to clear up some of my shit (I feel this will mostly be a digital and mental process), I have bought the Stuffocation book by James Wallman to physically clear out the spaces I am associated with and I'm vision boarding again with Ross about what our future looks like. 

We're also going to look back and do a timeline of all the things we've done together. That's going to be fun for sure. 

Hopefully a more regular stream of posts to follow. : - )
