‘I’m starting with the man in the mirror.

I’m asking him to change his ways.

And no message could have been any clearer.

If you want to make the world a better place.

Take a look at yourself, and then make a change.’


I’ve heard those words sung many times by the legend that was … Michael Jackson.


But on Sunday night, whilst escaping from the bitter cold air in London, by randomly getting last minute theatre tickets to see Thriller Live … those words truly made an impact!


It echoed a lot of what just a few hours ago, I’d been chatting about with YOU, whilst recording this week’s podcast episode. (I always picture that I’m actually speaking to you when I hit ‘record’ … incase you’re sitting here scratching your head & thinking … ‘did we speak?’)


Here’s where you can tune into this week’s podcast chat … (you just need to picture in your head that we’re sitting in your favourite coffee shop together .. having a deep & meaningful chat over a skinny white Americano … cause do you know how many calories are in a caramel macchiato?!?)


Here’s a little sneaky peek of how some of that interesting conversation flowed …


Why is it so easy for us to think that we need the latest tactic or strategy, to help us grow our business?  Because in fact, most of the times … what we really need to do is look much closer to home (i.e. in the mirror).


And on that … why do we something automatically think that NEW is better than OLD … (& when are those times that ‘new’ really is better?).  Is it that we’re suffering from FOMO (fear of missing out), instead of embracing JOMO (joy of missing out)?


Seriously, can you honestly say that your goals are really YOUR goals?  Or have they all meshed together from all the influences around you … to make you think that they’re your goals but really deep down, they’re not really?


* Told you we went deep! *


Plus, we dove into why you need to keep an eye on the actions you’re taking. Because if you’re not careful, each of those little decisions you’re making, can end up compounding together & taking further away from what you actually want … rather than closer to it.


All this sparked from what’s been a fortnight of interesting events, reflections & conversations that I’ve been having. Then ‘random’ things popping up everywhere, making me think … this needs to be talked more about … with you & for you too!


So enjoy listening in & I’d love to hear what it sparks for you. Be sure to let me know, by dropping a comment below.

p.s. – it’s amazing how much music can take you back to a certain memory right? Listening to all his tunes during the show, reminded me of how my dad refused to let us go see Michael Jackson’s outdoor concert when he played in Glasgow .. because we were too small & it wouldn’t be safe. But instead he took us to the park where the concert was happening … literally helped us climb massive trees right next to the perimeter fence & had views directly to the stage … so we could ‘sit’ on a branch & see Michael perform! Magic! Yet as a dad myself now … it makes me think … was that really a safer option?!
