What Would Steve Jobs Do? How to Recover as an Entrepreneur After a Setback

Here’s a story for anyone currently facing a difficult time on the journey to career success. The year was 1985. A young business man was fired from his job at a computer company in California. He had no college degree and had just barely turned 30 years old. His mind was full of innovative ideas, but he was told he was too reckless to ever run his own business.

That man was Steve Jobs.

Of course, you don’t need me to tell you that Steve Jobs eventually recovered from his devastating career setback. As we all know, he later went on to become one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time. Continue reading “What Would Steve Jobs Do? How to Recover as an Entrepreneur After a Setback”

Why finding purpose can be so important and how to find yours

One day, after my wife and I had been shopping in London, we returned to London Victoria station and looked for an empty seat whilst we waited for our train to arrive at its platform. Usually, when I am free, I would tend to look down at my phone and take in ridiculous amounts of information from various facets, but this time, like my wife often does, I began to observe other people going about their daily lives. Friends shaking hands, businessmen rushing about, weaving in and out of the masses of crowds, others reading newspapers intently with their legs folded, people sitting high above the open square in the Weatherspoons pub, relaxing with a pint of the finest beer, also observing others walking by and teenagers in a large group all focused upon their smart devices, smiling and seeking approval amongst one another.

What became evident to me, something that many of us don’t often think about, was that each person was going about their life with a goal, purpose or ambition in mind. Not one person was just wandering aimlessly.

We are so focused on our own lives, struggles, strains (and goals) that we forget that every single person around us is also experiencing similar feelings and human impulses to live our lives with a purpose. In this blog post I intend to discuss the important of finding purpose, what purpose might mean for different people and how to go about discovering your own.

What's Your Story?

What’s Your Story?

Some time ago I was fortunate to be able to attend a professional development workshop run by Professor Jeffrey Kottler, an academic visiting the U.K. from California State University on the west coast of the U.S.  Professor Kottler, an experienced therapist and educator of the next generation of counsellors in the States had a take on the therapeutic process that immediately rang true with me even though I had not up to that point devoted much thought to it.  Our lives, Kottler stated, are our stories.  Continue reading “What’s Your Story?”

Social Media: False Friend?

You may be familiar with the phrase ‘Dunbar’s Number’, named after the anthropologist Robin Dunbar and coined in the 1990s.  Dunbar’s number refers to the probable limit to the number of social relationships a person can maintain effectively at one time, and is an interesting concept in the Internet age where many people’s  online ‘friends lists’ can number in the high hundreds.  What would you think Dunbar’s studies into human brain size and social grouping revealed to be the approximate maximum number of sustainable social connections?  300?  500?  Maybe 900?

Counselling The Well

Counselling The Well

When it comes to going to the dentist, many people book six monthly or annual appointments to give their teeth a ‘check up’, even when they are not in pain or needing any major treatment.  This touching base, to catch any problems in the early stages, is widely accepted to be a good idea and is indeed recommended by dentists here in the U.K.  Similarly your car, if you have one, will need to have a regular inspection and be fine tuned to make sure that it is running safely and efficiently.  Most people would not question the logic behind such checks, which are  designed to identify problem areas before they are in need of serious attention.
