How to Read a Tape Measure
This is a quick little video I put together for those people who are just learning to read a tape measure. If you already know how please don’t make fun. Remember, none of us knew how until we learned how for the first time.

I also did woodworking for many years without really knowing how to read the different tic marks on a tape measure. So don’t be embarrassed if you aren’t sure. One of the most frequent comments I hear is “I don’t know how to read a tape.”

Hopefully this can help you out too. 🙂

How To Stop Being Lost In Transition And Move Into New Beginnings – 9 Key Points

In the sacred books of each of the Abrahamic faith traditions there are references to the presence of what we would now refer to as Israeli tribes located in the land of Goshen, a region within ancient Eqypt. The Judaic Torah and Christian Old Testament record the legend of the exodus of these tribes c 1200 BCE from the bondage of slavery in Egypt, under the leadership of Moses, towards what they believed to be their promised land known as Canaan or Palestine. So why do the narratives of this exodus tell us that it took the Israeli tribes forty years years of meandering around the wilderness regions of the Sinai peninsular to accomplish their objective? In this article we look at the lessons from this mythic story about why they got stuck for so long, what diversions and distractions to avoid, and 9 key steps to help you move into new beginnings.

Lost In Transition – How To Cope With Hard Times

At the time of writing, with the world slowly emerging from Covid-19 lockdown, with our economies strangled, business failures and unemployment rising and our national governments flailing around like drowning men clutching at straws I think it is fair to say that many of us are currently experiencing hard times as a direct result of imposed change! The purpose of this article is to set out a framework for understanding what is happening to you and to go beyond the circumstantial changes and to address the inner psychological and emotional impacts and how you can deal with those as well. The first and key point to make is that there is a distinction between the events, situations and circumstances that are imposed on you and your inner response to these things.

Social Contagion – You Become The Company You Keep

During the 2020 Coronavirus lockdown we have all gone to great lengths to avoid this highly contagious virus and have experienced varying levels of state enforced social distancing. With the phased lifting of the lockdown, and the resumption of social contact we are now increasingly exposed to another threat, another form of contagion. This renewed threat is known as emotional contagion, which is the effect and impact of other people’s emotions on our own dominant emotional state. This matters, as many of our life experiences are created or attracted by our dominant emotional state. Because the means of transmission is via renewed and increasing social contact I reframe this as social contagion.

“I Hate You, Don’t Leave Me”

A number of years ago, I read a book called “I Hate You, Don’t Leave Me: Understanding the Borderline Personality.” This is an old book, originally published in 1989, but I thought it was still excellent.
