He knows he’s dope, but he’s broke

"Snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity Oh, there goes Rabbit, he choked He's so mad, but he won't give up that easy? No He won't have it, he knows his whole back city's ropes It don't matter, he's dope, he knows that, but he's broke" ~Marshall Bruce Mathers III Don’t tell me you [...]

Hello Science Nerds! Yep, it's Science Wednesday, and today I bring you a thing of beauty – and possibly pictorial evidence that Star Trek-style transporters have already been invented and are being used in Canada.  Thanks to a 2-year-old wailing scientist-in-waiting, Timothy Joseph Elzinga of North Bay, Ontario, Canada, woke up in the middle of [...]

This is how you do it

I stumbled across this little gem in a Facebook group I lurk in the other day. The author, Mike Heath, gave me permission to share it with you – because it's bloody gold. Now, pay close attention:  I know sometimes we get caught up in our own little marketing bubbles, so I thought I'd share [...]

You’re not busy; you’re lazy

An email arrived from my friend Yinka a while ago, informing me that rather than being productive, I was actually being lazy. My mouth dropped open. I was momentarily outraged.  Then I read on. She'd been listening to an audiobook and heard the narrator say this: "Being Busy is a form of laziness - lazy [...]

Ask and ye shall receive

Here's a thought: how often do you ask for what you want? In life and in business? Not often enough, I'll wager. I don't mean ask with an expectation to receive, as if you're entitled to it; I mean ask for the business or the favour or the thing you want or need. We Brits [...]

How to bend the jellybrains

Long-time subscriber and Borrow My Brainer Adrian sent me some mind-bending tricks a while ago.  If you sometimes find yourself fighting with your brain – and who doesn't? – you might want to give some of these a try. Plus, they help you to bend others to your will, too. *insert evil laugh here* Ready [...]

I was thinking about social proof the other day. The fact that much of our behaviour is determined by what other people are doing around us.  Yes, it is – and social experiments have shown this to be the case, although we never realise what persuaded us to take the action. With this in mind, [...]

Why you need to be a QUITTER

It’s the same. Every. Single. Year. People are so full of shit (and I’ve been guilty of this myself): This year, it’ll be different”  “2017 is my year” “I’ll achieve my goals this time” “In 2017, I’ll make changes” Bollocks. It’s the same year after year. I even see the same people saying this stuff [...]

The Church of Infinite Regret

Whenever I go to Cork for my Mastermind Group weekends, I always stay over at the Cork International Hotel. Let me tell you a little about the Cork International...  Last year, when I stayed there, I was up until 2.30am. Drinking prosecco, then whisky. Normally, I don't drink to excess because I suffer for it the [...]

What do you do?

Saw this in a Facebook group, and it – and the answers – cracked me up. So, quick poll: Your job has changed. You now do the opposite of your job. What do you do? If you're not sure what I mean, I'll go first... I go around half-cut fucking up people's businesses and erasing [...]
