Getting Things Done – A 7 Step Recipe

It is said that “people who fail to learn from their mistakes are doomed to repeat them”.
I think you could take that one step further and say that any challenge that we face can be made easier simply by keeping track of what we do and by aiming to do it slightly better each time we encounter it. It’s not that we are competing against the rest of the world, but simply competing against ourselves. Perpetually trying to achieve a “personal best” every time.
Imagine if you were a 14th Dan …

London Wiki Wednesday

A twofold, big “thank you” to @osmosoft who hosted @londonwikiwed on 7 Jul 2010 at their offices by St James Park. Firstly, the team at London Wiki Wednesday is always grateful for help and support with the regular meetings.  And secondly, it made me realise that the world is not flat.
Oh? You knew that already?
Well yes, most of us do! But until that upstart Galileo …

Use your imagination

I’m working on a new Wiki at the moment, and Benjamin Ellis has given me a useful idea! In a tweet from SXSW – that’s a big conference for geeks (and others), held every year in the USA – Benjamin said:

Now, whilst he was probably thinking in broader terms than I, it made me think a bit more about the nature of the Wikis which I’m running. …

Lifestyle Saturday
A new year and new plans! It has also been a time to reflect on the old year. And here are three things that worked for me in 2009, and which I had only just dabbled in previously . . .

A wiki
A blog
A Samba server

All three have been around for more than a year, but 2009 will be remembered for being the year when they all began to …

More Profit in Less Time – The Wednesday Tip
The wireless router gave up this week, and I had to buy a new one. How often does that happen? Once every two or three years? And how much do we remember about the last time we installed a new router.
One of the things that can help us keep these small dilemmas small, is to keep tabs on how we did …

More Profit in Less Time – The Wednesday Tip
The biggest reason is that “they don’t know how”.
How do you make beans on toast? You probably know already! How do you make a lemon meringue? If you don’t know, you go and look it up in a recipe book, or on the internet. And that’s the principle that we all need to follow, whether we’re in business, or following a …

For some time now I have been keeping track of my business affairs on a Zoho wiki. It’s a great tool, and it allows me to check procedures and update my “scribble pad” from any computer that has internet access. At least that was true until last weekend. I was planning to do some work on the Wiki last Sunday morning (when things are quiet and there are no distractions) and unfortunately, Zoho had the same idea at the same time. The wiki engine was unavailable for 3 hours. Both …

Technology Thursday

In the old days, I used to code HTML in Notepad, then WinEdit, and latterly Crimson Editor. It’s been a useful skill to have, but I am beginning to lose what little HTML skill I had.
This blog is so easy for me to maintain that I hardly write any HTML any more. No more code in the editor, no more FTP issues, and no more of those repetitive upload, download, rework exercises that I used to go through. WordPress has made life easy for me.
And so …
