Unfolding plans 102 – Why do you want to talk like Ted?

I've come to enjoy presentations. You and I know that I do enough of them. Lately it seems to have been the main topic of my conversations, which is apt. I’ve been trying hard to improve my technique and practiced much harder than I used to.  I’m trying to hold conversations rather than stick to … Continue reading Unfolding plans 102 – Why do you want to talk like Ted?

Unfolding plans 101 – Take your opportunities when you can

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the best place to buy a postcard is not the Post Office.  You may find that odd.  I know that I did.  Where else would you go for all things postal?  Well you would be wrong.  The vast majority of post offices don’t sell postcards unless you want … Continue reading Unfolding plans 101 – Take your opportunities when you can

Unfolding plans 100 – a score card

Unfolding plans 97 – chugging tugboats

This Guerrilla Working thing is catching on, at least in part.  I find I can work more or less anywhere, with or without a wireless network.  If I’m offline then I can catch up with all of the things that have been synchronised with my laptop, such as mail.  I can do reports and presentations … Continue reading Unfolding plans 97 – chugging tugboats

Unfolding plans 96 – Phil Jackman Author

I am an author.  I am a writer.  I have written a book and it has been published.  I doubt it is the best book ever to have been written and I don’t expect it to be in the best sellers list but that is not the point.  It is published and a small number … Continue reading Unfolding plans 96 – Phil Jackman Author
