Turns out, teaching kids to be nice people is not so complicated.

Ok, why is a seventy something man character like me watching a romantic film about a mistreated teenager?

I would like to say there was some higher motive, but I have to admit, it was more to do with lockdown and boredom, a bottle of red, and a roaring wood fire on a cold day.

Well, that’s how it started out. It finished though, in a revelation!

Please bear with me while I explain?

It’s all to do with our first seven years.

Give me a child for 7 years and I’ll give you the man.


You see, I’ve been teaching people to communicate for several decades, mostly…

Self Communication

Honestly, it’s a real gift horse!

The guy on the video said it’s so easy, anyone can do it! He said I deserve it and I owe it to my family! But I had to act quickly to take advantage of the opportunity. I mean, they’re giving a 90% discount and a whole list of special promotions and bonuses. All very limited and only available because of the pandemic!

Just think of it — 90% discount! Unbelievable, or what!

Actually, it is unbelievable, isn’t it?

Maybe I should have looked the gift horse in the mouth?

Cynical selling of easy fortunes is not a new past-time, sales tricksters have been amongst us for centuries.

The idiom, a…

There’s one thing you can do better than anyone else, talk to yourself!

The power to love life lives inside you, and only you can give it a free voice, make it prominent, protect it from outside influence and give it power to control your life!

Self Communication

Those leading to answers you actually want!

Questions are a powerful communication tool — possibly the most powerful! However, the effectiveness of our questions relies heavily on the quality!

We use questions all the time, but how many of us think of questioning as a skill that can be developed and perfected as a specific part of our communications processes?

If we compare an average use of questions with that of professionals, like lawyers and doctors, it’s easy to see the difference in quality. Important decisions they make rely on the information they gather, they understand therefore, the quality of answers depend upon quality of questions.

The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

Some days are just plain ordinary! There’s nothing to celebrate, nothing to mourn, it was simply a …….. day.

A day of equilibrium, a yardstick to measure the others by. A day to make good days celebratory, and bad days a provision for learning.

Demanding too much of every day creates discontent where none belongs and malcontents where they should not live. It clouds the mind and kills positive thought.

And who ever said something special should happen every day?

How many tons of ordinary earth have to be moved to find the…

Of course, you’re correct, so you stand your ground!

You argue black is white and pink is green, so does the other person, because of course, they are also correct.

Is your customer service department really a complaints department?

There are two kinds of ‘customer service’ responses. One, listen to respond with your preferred solution, the other is to listen…
