EP | 026 Chip away every day
It's far better to do 5 or 10 minutes a day than an hour a week. It's far better to break large complex tasks or goals into bite-size chunks and do them with regularity and consistency everyday rather than wait until you can blitz it in one go. If you want to improve your craft at something you need to be doing it everyday not just every so often. And if you want to get to the goal it's better to make small progress every day rather than large progress every so often. Baby steps and chipping away at something everyday and the routes to achievement.

EP 025 | Don't build your house on someone else's land
If you are reliant on a third party for your livelihood, then consider ways that you can change that; what if overnight they changed their rules and you lose your access to them how would that affect your business or your livelihood? Perhaps you are an employee who got made redundant, perhaps you were reliant on Facebook and they change their API access and your business no longer has access to the data it needs to function, perhaps you relied on MySpace and it just died on you! If you rely on some other company for your livelihood, at some point, they can change that relationship and you can be left stranded. So, if you can avoid it, don't build your house on somebody else's land.

EP 024 | Simplify your life
What have you not started yet because you're overcomplicating it in your mind? What are you doing that is being dragged down by overcomplicating? How would simplifying elements of your life, your work, your planning, your everything, make it easier to move closer to where you want to be? Isn't it time to simplify your life?

EP 023 | Make your dreams happen today
Think about your average day when you've succeeded in your goal or reached your dream. What does it look like? What do you do in the morning, the afternoon, the evening? Get specific! Now, how can you bring, and start integrating, some of those elements into your day to day life right now? I'm short, if it's your dream, or you're waiting until something like retirement to do the things you've always wanted to do, why not start them right now; what's stopping you?

EP 022 | How many people is enough?
What's the purpose of your goal? If it is to positively affect people - whether through a business product or service, through art, charity, etc - then, if you were to consider what you do valid and worthwhile consider, "How many people is enough?". How many people do you need to affect for it to be worth it?

EP 021 | You never know when the payoff is going to come
You never know when the payoff is going to don't focus on it. Instead, invest in that "thing" (relationships, health, your creative passion, etc) because you love it and because you believe in it. Don't let a "lack of progress" deter you; persevere. Because you never know when the payoff is going to come!

EP 020 | Move out of your comfort, physically move!
Changing your location, your movement and your sensory input are great ways to be out of your usual, comfortable zone, and can be greatly beneficial for you. Even just changing the route you normally take to get somewhere can help improve your mood, focus and creativity. Moving out of your comfort zone isn't just about the work and skills you're doing, it's your physical location too.

EP 019 | Tomorrow is Day One
Fallen out of the habit of doing something? Been meaning to start something you've just not gotten around to yet? The past is not the future, nor do you have to wait for a special day to (re)start doing something - resolutions don't need to wait for January 1st; instead, tomorrow can be Day One.

EP 018 | You don't have to be the best, just somebody's favourite
Whether in relationships, in business, in the creative arts, in simply indulging a passion or hobby, don't focus on being the best - and don't let fear of not being the best stop you from starting - instead focus on being someone's favourite. And the great thing is, your uniqueness, your unique personality, viewpoint and experience is precisely what will make you somebody's favourite.

EP 017 | Is my songwriting more inspiration or perspiration?
Where does new art come from? What drives creativity? Is it the "muse" or is it just hard graft? That was the question put to me about my new album, and my music in general, and this episode seeks to answer it. But, in short; it's a bit of both :)

EP 016 | What's important is the message not the medium
This is a marketing-focused episode today so, if it's not your bag, feel free to skip it! If it IS your thing, then you may find it interesting: The important thing to get across is your message, not the wrapper, or medium, that carries it.

EP 014 | A message of thanks!
This episode is a message of thanks to all of you. To everyone who has supported me in whatever capacity. And it's a reminder for us all, to say thank you to those people who support and inspire us in our lives, from family and friends to those we've never met in person. If someone inspires and motivates you to do better, to be better, then share the love, let that person/those people know how much you appreciate it :)

EP 013 | Take action, then course correct as you go
Unless it affects someone's health (including your own!) nothing is permanent, it can be changed over time. So take action on your goal, no matter what that is. Even if the results aren't perfect at first, you can always course correct as you go. But you must take action first, or you've no course to correct.

EP 012 | Why everyone should build their personal brand
Owning your own corner of the online world, where you can share your thoughts, experience and creativity, gives you both a way for personal growth and the possibility to increase your value in "the marketplace", whatever marketplace means to you. That's why I think everyone should have their own website!

EP 011 | Who inspires me the most in making music (& why)
Thanks to Jaime Hudson for this question! I got so passionate in answering this question and talking about music that I might have overrun my usual timings... But what the hell, I'm talking about MUSIC! BOOYA! :)

EP 010 | Milestones, actions and baby steps
"talk is cheap", "actions are louder than words", "a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step"; we all know the old adages, and for good reason - they are right! Today's episode is a little reminder on them all.

EP 009 | Happy Easter everybody!
I almost didn't get to today's podcast; I've been feeling really drained today. But thanks to wonderful, supportive words of encouragement from you guys I realised it's better to persevere and show up and build the habit of action, even if the results aren't optimum, than it is to do nothing and get no results at all.

EP 008 | Select a tool for the job, not a job for the tool
I'm guilty of collecting "tools" (software, profiles on social media platforms, etc) then trying to find a "job" for them, a use case that justifies my resource investment into them. Really, though, a tool should be acquired to fulfill the need of an existing challenge, not the other way round.

EP 007 | Moving out of your comfort zone
Working on my new album today, I remembered a frustrating truth of life; when we move out of our comfort zone, we can expect to feel like we're going backwards. At least, initially. But persevere and the rewards will be you can do it all over again!

EP 006 | Cultivate happiness by being grateful
When things don't work properly, or they change away from what's expected, it's easy to get frustrated and annoyed with them. Because we take them for granted. But we've never had it so good and so easy!

EP 005 | The story of the Mexican Fisherman
What are you actually working towards? What's the goal? Perhaps you're closer than you think! Remember the story of the Mexican fisherman...

EP 004 | Do not mistake movement for progress
It's very easy to be "busy". But busyness in and of itself is not the goal. The goal is to actually be productive and work towards the thing that you're trying to achieve. And that is something we very often forget!

EP 003 | Meet hostility with kindness
An interesting incident last night reminded me of a good way to be, that creates friends out of foes.

EP 002 | Your actions can inspire others without you realising
Your actions are like drops of water on a still pond; they ripple out far and wide, and you never know how and who they're going to affect. So best to make them as good and positive as you can!
