Small Practice Blog

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.

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.

Leaving my hay fever aside, cycling in summer is the best.

I would not call myself a racer. I think a commuter cyclist best describes me. Also many cyclists overtake me. This means I am not a fit cyclist either. I will be once the massive excess weight goes.

Even after 3 years of MBA school where there was such a heavy emphasis on strategic thinking , I am not sure I have understood the meaning of strategic thinking and its practical application.

One of my key objectives for 2013 is weight loss.

As some readers know I used to report on my weekly weigh-ins. I stopped this, in order not to bore readers. My weight loss progress was mixed up to the end of last month. This month it has been on the up.
