Jesus Was A Socialist

Socialist Jesus

I’m not a religious person, but equally, I’m not anti-religion either.

My stance on God is similarly non-committal.

I don’t believe in a higher power, but nor I disbelieve in a higher power.

I guess I’m an agnostic.

The fact of the matter is, nobody knows about the latter and it’s impossible to accurately quantify the value of the former.

Of course some delusional souls from both sides of the debate who don’t understand the

What Is Sunk Cost Fallacy – And Why Can It Hurt You?

sad man

In the early 90’s driven on by my love of music I started a record store in my rather small home town.

I knew from the get-go that I couldn’t afford to spend all my time there because I needed a steady income to pay my mortgage and as such I looked for a partner.

After many beer fueled chats in pubs and even one in particular at a soccer game I was introduced to

My Name Is Tim And I Have A Garden Gnome Addiction


Just over 10 years ago I had two discs in my neck removed at C4 and C5.

At the time I knew I had problems with other discs lower down and further procedures were probably going to be necessary at some stage.

I started having some discomfort a few months ago and made an appointment to see a spinal specialist.

During the consult he asked me about my previous surgeries and said, “I see you

How Your Focus is Screwing Up Your Future

The following is a guest post from Lea Bullen.


My aunt doesn’t drive. She never learned. Well, actually kind of she did.

After buying a new car and having a couple of children, my uncle thought it would be a good idea for his wife to learn to drive. She had never gotten behind the wheel before but things were changing and it’s a useful skill.

Her being able to drive would be great.

20 Awesome Celebrity Quotes Worth Sharing


There is a cognitive bias in psychology called the halo effect. Effectively it means that the more we admire and/or like somebody, the more we are likely to agree and align with something they say.

Advertisers use it to great effect when paying huge sums to stars to promote their products. After all, if the latest hot celeb is wearing a product it must be worth buying, right?

Politicians use it also, which is why

Why All Writers Should Have a Therapist (or Life Coach)

Writers Block

I haven’t been running many guest posts lately simply because I’m phasing them out for when I launch my new site either next month or early May.

When I got this post my first thought was, “What has this got to do with self development or Life Coaching?”.

But then I stopped to think for a moment and realized that writing is becoming more and more important for all of us.

It’s no longer something

Sticks And Stones May Break My Bones

baby upset

I’m sure that you remember the phrase ‘Sticks and stones can break my bones, but names can never harm me” from childhood, I know I certainly do.

But is it true?

Or is it one of those pieces of old-time nonsense that appears to be wise at first glance, but when you dig a bit deeper possess all the wisdom of a Paris Hilton led think tank on Quantum Mechanics.

I got into a lively

What is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching image

If you were to stop 100 people in the street and ask them what life is, you would probably get some strange looks, but I would imagine everybody would be able to give you an answer of some description.

If you had too much time on your hands and you were to follow that up by asking them if they knew what a coach was, again most would be able to give you a satisfactory
