The 5am Club

Recently went on holiday with some childhood friends to Wales, and decided I’d sneak in a cheap kindle read. Indulging in a cheesy “self-help” book, one I didn’t have to take too seriously and one that would require very little changes in my life (I already wake at 5 most days). But at the same…

Mentored by Authors

Anyone who has been around this blog for long enough will know that I love to read. But from March 2020 up until now, I have deliberately taken a few steps back from reading “Christian” books.

Life Purpose

A few years ago, I sat down with Robert Clinton’s book: Strategic Concepts – strategies that clarify a focused life. And worked slowly through it, day-by-day, doing the activities and journaling through many of the questions. The end result was, among many other things, a statement which I have defined as my life purpose. Over…
