thinking outloud

Einstein, a keen cyclist, said Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving. He obviously never got a puncture.

Our approach is to keep moving, maintaining a level of curiosity and appetite to learn, to be forward thinking and future-focused. Old thinking won’t open new doors, so we seek to gain new insights from research and reading every day, to provoke and fuse experience with knowledge.

Distracted from distraction by distraction, social media allows us to behave in ways that sparks a revelation that we all have a voice, and through the democratisation of content and ideas we can ‘be social’.

Whilst we don’t have what I would call an ‘authentic’ one-on-one interaction, social media creates an ambient awareness of what’s going on in the lives of other people, what they’re thinking about, what they’re doing, where they are, what they’re looking at.

You can then scoop it all up, knit it together for yourself, and do some breakthrough thinking of your own. New thinking gives us new ideas, immediacy, direction, a sense of clarity and value as an individual.

Here is a collection of words I’ve called Thinking Outloud, because that’s what it is. The difference between a mountain and a molehill is your own perspective, and the words and opinions here express my personal outlook and viewpoints on a range of issues relevant to my business life.

From the Lighthouse is my blog, a collection of answers people don’t want to hear to questions they didn’t ask. I aim to provide insight on strategy, entrepreneurship, people, business life and some random stuff.


On Twitter, we get excited if someone follows us. In real life we get scared and run away. I use it to broadcast random thoughts on a daily basis in 140 characters about things I see, hear and experience.
