Let the train take the strain

Posted in Mick Say Ramblings by Mick Say on October 3, 2011

Enroute To London Victoria from Herne Bay train station. At this time of day this journey should be a breeze. I have the carriage to my self at the moment with a table to rest my bits on and type away. Hope the coffee trolley comes soon.

Waking up, feeling good.

20110928-064045.jpg With less than 3 hours sleep last night following a long day which ended with the gang on #EavChat followed by completing a proposal I am finally waking up with a little help from my Costa Flat White and Classic Elton John.

Those good old corporate days!

Posted in Mick Say Ramblings by Mick Say on September 22, 2011

Well it’s 5:17AM GMT and already we are a few miles into our journey. Glad Mel is driving as I have not slept since 5AM yesterday. Twenty four hours straight with no bed in sight for a another 18 hours minimum.

Will I make #EavChat tonight at 12 Midnight GMT who knows? Not if I have any sense.

I remember the days in corporate life when 12 hour days were the norm, little did I know then that 12 hours was a luxury. Owning and running your own young but growing business requires more than just knowledge, it requires steely determination and a will to win that helps you fight through fatigue to get the job done.

This long day and story reminds me of listening to a millionaire roofing contractor speaking about his life. Can’t remember his name unfortunately, but he said something like.

“I only work half a day 5 days per week, and being the boss, I get to choose which 12 hours I work!

Wish I could remember the accurate quote and the guy’s name.

Well I did say that this blog was for my ramblings….

Living the Dream

Posted in Mick Say Ramblings by Mick Say on September 8, 2011

I spend a fair amount of time in London and travel in and out by car at least once per week, this is a two hour each way journey which I am lucky enough to do with my wife as she does this commute every day.

So I get to be a passenger during the four hour round trip. This gives me quality time to catch up on my social media activity and and notice stuff which is going on around us in the world we are driving through. As well as spend precious time with my wife.

At first thought this commute is a crass waist of my time, but then it gets me out of the office which is cool and as an added bonus the many sights, sounds and other stimuli give me a different outlook from which to form ideas and plans.

I feel so lucky that I have been blessed with the ability think, feel and express my thoughts, and also feel great gratitude to the paying clients that make living my dream life a reality.
