Picture by Me: Braaid, Isle of Man.
Do you ever get the feeling things are about to change? You are happy with what you are doing, then, boom! Well, I have had that feeling for a while now and it is such an unsettling feeling. I don’t want this post to be a downer, so I am looking for some inspiration.
Someone who is helping my state of mind at the moment is thousands of miles away and it’s Ian F. Thank you for posting the content you are… from cooking to gratitude. You do put a smile on my face, my friend.
So Amazon delivered the new Tim Ferriss book I ordered: ‘Tribe of Mentors’ What’s great about this book is that you don’t have to read it from the beginning to end to get the gist of it. Tim asked people the same questions, so you can just jump in and see what appeals to you. It did find someone I had never heard of before and that is: ‘Tim Urban’ he’s known for his TED Talk about procrastination; but also has a much read blog: ‘Wait But Why’
One of the quotes that caught my eye was from Naval Ravikant:
“Self-esteem is just the reputation that you have with yourself. You’ll always know”
As we head into December, it’s time for some reflection of the last year. I have to say it was a good start and now it’s seems unclear as to what direction needs to be taken.
Today is a beautiful, cold, sunny day on the Isle of Man and its days like this that makes me appreciate where I live. I am going to pop out at lunch time and take a picture for this blog post, not sure where I’ll go but I’m sure I will get a great shot!
Some of the best news I saw last night, is that Gary Numan is bringing his ‘Savage’ tour to the Isle of Man on Friday 23 March 2018. I was looking through the tour dates wondering if I should book to see him in Liverpool and Bam, there was a date for the Isle of Man listed, super-stoked is an understatement. If you haven’t heard his new album: ‘Savage: Songs from a Broken World’ do check it out, it is brilliant. Here’s the first single: ‘My Name Is Ruin’ which features his daughter, Persia on vocals. She has been on some of the tour dates with him and I hope Gary brings her along for the gig here.
Thanks for reading!
