When I was walking 70 miles along the Cam last year, it never occurred to me that I might walk the length of the country. I wonder where this adventure will propel me to next?Read More
When we think about coming up with a traditional New Years resolution it’s because we want to make a change. The issue is we’re assuming we know what the solution should be to that particular problem. We often come up with a big grand plan to solve it, with no mechanism for looking at whether this new approach is actually working for us. We’ve either kept at it, or we’ve failed.
I challenge you to make 2017 your year of little failures and little learnings and have a go at iterating your way to something new.Read More
At this time of year, as everyone starts talking about Christmas decorations going up in November, “did you see the latest Christmas advert?!” and the need to get something sorted for New Years Eve, I find myself wanting to escape.Read More
Completing a wild challenge renews in me a faith in myself. It shows me what I can accomplish, if only I’m silly enough to dream up some random challenge and then boldly follow it to the end, no matter how I feel along the way.Read More
As it turns out, when you try to cycle the length of a river, you don’t actually get to see a whole lot of the river.
At it’s source it trickles along back streets and through the edges of vast fields far away from any cycle path or road. And as it reaches an urban area you might be lucky enough for a stretch or two of towpath as the river’s historic use for transport enables far better navigation by bicycle.Read More
Lots of people tell you to quite your job and follow your dreams, to find your calling or do work you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.
But wow, that’s a lot of pressure. What if you choose the wrong thing? What if you have no idea what your “calling” is? What if you don’t know, out of all the things you love doing, which you should pick to start a business with?Read More
While adventure is often thrilling, immensely fun and can push a new limit, it can also be a way to unwind, relax and simply enjoy some down time. And what better way to recuperate on a microadventure than having it end with a session in the Spa.Read More
The plan is to traverse the Cam from it’s source in Ashwell along it’s 70 mile route to where it meets the North Norfolk sea at Kings Lynn. But just doing it once would be too easy, so, of course, I’m doing it 3 times; once by bicycle, once by foot and once by stand up paddle board (SUP) (here is where the ‘of sorts’ comes in, I don’t fancy swimming it!). This trio of methods makes it 210 miles in all. By far the furthest distance I’ll have traveled thus far on an adventure.Read More
Asking a question is something we’re all capable of and it can have such a positive impact on your project. You don’t need a qualification, permission or experience. And best of all, you can do it right now.Read More
Yes, when you first start up your new business this is a tough point full of self doubt, but even if you have several things going on, inevitably not all of them are likely to be working out at the same time, so to be able to keep going and keep the faith when it doesn’t feel like it’s all going as planned (or you have no idea what the plan even is), is invaluable.Read More
