I currently have the choice of a selection of new Nokia phones. I have the choice between 5610, 6220, 6300, 6301, 6500.
Anybody got any idea what the best of those is?
Yes it is an advert. Yes it resonated strongly with me.
There must be something in the air. Today I handed in my notice and I leave in mid-september. After four years at Boulder it wasn't an easy thing to do, I love my job here and have a lot to be proud of.
I'm off to start my own company. Based in Wiltshire (which means I can live with Ruth) offering personal development in the outdoors. I've got three months to sort out an office, build a brand, find an accountant and recruit some staff. Then of course I need to find some customers. I also need to rent out our house and and move my stuff. The company will be called "Totem Personal Development" and will provide similar services to that which I do already, but with my spin on them.
I'm pleased I've done it. Like all hard decisions, the answer was obvious but taking the action was hard. I work much better to a deadline and now I have one.
I am certain the next couple of years are likely to be some of the hardest of my life but I am looking forward to them. I have felt the need to get my teeth into a big challenge for a while now and now I have one. I shall, no doubt, pester many of you for favours over the next few months and I want to make it clear now, I will not be offended if you cannot oblige.
Here's to a busy but successful future.
