My blogs

This blog post is my attempt to clarify the angle I take on my blogs. There is a misunderstanding and that is my fault for not being clear in the way I come across. 

Like anyone else I have what I see as normal  day to day problems. I blog about this and at times put these under magnifying glass. That is just the way I am. 

My blogs are both personal and business related. I just  blog about whatever moves me that day. I do not have a plan what I blog about. It is just a feeling I get to blog on a particular topic. 

Obviously the key difference is I air my day to day experience. One of he downside of this is I came across as having major problems needing psychological l help. This is not the case. My tendency is to over analyse the situation. As a result I come across as having major psychological problems. I have been checked out in all ways possible and there is nothing medically or mentally wrong with me aside from day to day frustrations that life brings. 

I think I will take some time off blogging to reflect on whether to make this a blog on business topics only.  

With respect I do not want a discussion on the state of my mental health. As I mentioned earlier I have been medically checked out.

I wouldn't worry FT, there are people (well, person singular) on here with far greater psychological problems than any you could ever be mistakenly credited with!!

Maybe you do over-analyse sometimes. Maybe - it's all subjective. But analysing isn't always a bad thing. At least you recognise when you have something that needs addressing. You could pretend it doesn't exist and stick your head in the sand. Where would that get you? Besides, given the amount of interest your blog posts get you must be talking about subjects that others are thinking about and difficulties that they've either faced in the past or are facing now (or may even face in the future).

Carry on sharing the details with us, it obviously helps you and I'm guessing that it helps others too. Although it's currently distracting me from having a shower and doing all the things I planned to do this evening!

... write what you want, how you want.

I think you are admired on here for your candour, we all feel as you at times but are too reserved to admit it, or we have wives/husbands etc. whom we can rant at.

It is not all one way, I think you will find many get as much from your blogs as you as the blog posts broach topics pertinent to their lives too.

Others made the point on a recent blog that getting stuff down on paper (well you know what I mean) is a great way to export stress, anxiety & confusion.  This has always, for me, been a great safety valve and far better than trying to put it in a box and nail down the lid, or control/master emotions as you wondered.

Yes, some emotions, even powerful ones, flare and drop off of their own accord however the ones associated with core issues (upbringing, relationships, fears, insecurity, VAT returns etc) are there for a purpose and so trying to sit on them can make things worse long term.

Keep your pencil sharp and scribble all you want, like ITV we can always change channel (sorry) ;o)

This blog is intended to show the highs and lows I face day-to-day working as an ambitious and highly driven small practice owner.

My blogs will be both professional and personal. What happens in my personal life affects my professional life and vice versa.

Just covering one aspect and not the other means that I will not learn how to improve and change.

Weight loss is an ongoing issue for me. You will find my weight loss blog on

My key motivation for blogging is constant and never ending improvement. Writing helps me to do this.

I hope you find my blogs of some interest.
