Our New Recycling Push

When you walk into the office on a Monday morning and find that they’ve removed all of the bins, then you know that something is up. There was an email on Friday afternoon, but that got the Friday afternoon treatment and went straight into the bin. (more…)

Luxury yacht charters in the South of France – For business and for pleasure

The Mediterranean has long been established as the world’s top luxury yacht charter ground, and when you consider the benefits of premium accommodation, transport and first-class personal service all rolled into one, it’s not hard to see why motor yachts and sailing yachts are so desirable for family holidays and corporate event charters in the region.

On board amenities also play a vital role in their lasting appeal, from the quintessential sundeck Jacuzzi and bar for cocktails at sunset, to more practical considerations such as conference rooms and private offices. This makes it possible to take work with you while you cruise between destinations, or shut the world out completely for a satisfying adventure amongst the magnificent cities and wildernesses of the French Riviera.

Life Behind The Steering Wheel

I’m sat not moving. I’m sat in the middle of no-where and I’m not going to be moving for ages. For some unknown reason, I actively choose to lose hours of my life, every week, just to sit and do nothing.

To be fair, I’m in my car on the way to work and theirs a traffic jam. It’s not unexpected and it’s not like I haven’t planned for it. It is the same every day and it will never change.

There are hours in my week, where I know I’ll be sat here, doing nothing. Just me behind the steering wheel and the radio letting me know that there’s traffic exactly where I am sat stationary.

Finding Solace

It is a rare treat in my day that I manage to find five minutes to think about anything which isn’t work. Finding that minute of solace in a hectic and managing to appreciate it is almost unheard of in my office.

We all run fast, we sprint from decision to decision, certain that the profit and the bottom line will be hugely negatively affected if we pause to breathe for a second.

Most of the time we’re right, most of the time the decision needed to be made an hour ago, yet we’re only just hearing of the issue. Most of the time is not that moment of solace, so when it comes we need to truly embrace it. (more…)

The Old Bet

Right before you read this, you need to know a few things.

I am a fully-grown man. I am a highly functioning, academically successful, fully-grown man. In fact, I am not only fully-grown, but also somehow, I manage to hold down a job as the head of a department of data nerds. You could say that I’m king nerd in our organisation.

I’m forced to lay this down at the outset, because the rest of this post will probably make you think that I’m a child and not a very useful child at that.

It all stems back to a bet I used to have with a childhood friend of mine. We had grown up living across the road from each other, and we had formed our friendship when 50p was a huge amount. So, naturally, our bet stems back to these days. The bet propositions have gotten larger and grown with age, and yet the bet stakes haven’t. We have a rule of the 50p bet. Now don’t think I’m that stupid, our bet uses the very same 50p piece every time. Inevitably, it’s more about the ownership of the coin, than it is about the money.
