Hidden stress

I realised last year that I have two very different reactions to stress. The first one – the most common and obvious reaction – is to become visibly and obviously agitated. I start speaking about twice as fast, my voice goes up the best part of an octave, and I become flustered and flushed. Visibly […]

Things tags: Emoji, frogs and GTD contexts

I’ve been using Things as my GTD app of choice for quite a long time now.┬áIn addition to experimenting with a physical progress meter, I’ve also been fiddling around with the tags. And here are all of my tags and their shortcuts. Mark Twain suggested that we “eat a live frog in the morning and […]

Moving on from W+K

Today is my last day at W+K London. Starting next week, I join the Government Digital Service.

Between Thursday and Saturday the weather way very fine and we enjoyed long walks with the dog along the stunning Pembrokeshire coast. Early Sunday morning, however, it turned not only very wet but […]

Wrapping Up

As you might know, I’m enjoying a relaxing couple of weeks off, wrapping up the year with family and friends. Staying with family means bonfires, Rock Band and eating copious quantities of rich and delicious food, like this: My wonderful Mum made them my combining a broken up Christmas pudding with dark chocolate, rolling it […]
