This Message Is a Choice Point
Life is too short to waste being afraid, and far too fragile to leave room for wonder. When we're at the end of the line and there's nothing left to do but wait for our last breath, we're not going to fondly remember the moments where we held back and played it safe. We're not going to be glad we never spoke our truth when it mattered most, or that we never told the people we cared for deeply how we truly felt. We're not going to be glad that we did what we thought we "should" rather than following our hearts. Rather than taking risks, putting it all on the line, and living life full out. No, we're going to regre...

The innovators: the customised robotic hand you can print out at home
Joel Gibbard has developed a method of producing bespoke bionic prostheses for a fraction of the price of similar devices on the market by using a 3D printerAs a teenage hobbyist building robots at home in Bristol, Joel Gibbard had a leftfield thought when pondering his next project. How would he continue to make models if he lost a hand?“The critical thing to me in continuing to play with robotics and tinker with making things was to use my hands. So I thought it would make sense to make a robotic hand so that in the event I ever lost one, I would continue to use that,” he said. Continue reading... (Source: Gu...

There are three clients I had conversations with, just from last week, that will think this post was inspired by our chat... because it's something I talk about and come up against so frequently. When we set out to build a business around our passions, we think it's simply a matter of clearly defining the end destination, then taking steps A, B, C and so on until we get there. And for some people, it is that simple. Easy (probably not) but clear and able to be broken down into a step-by-step plan they can execute. Sometimes, with certain personalities and passions, the step-by-step is a frustrating, "lean into it an...
