Sometimes you just have to just do it. Whatever it is. Stop prevaricating, stop procrastinating, stop dreaming about it and take action. Most people are really good at procrastinating.

Keeping Things Simple

In this video I want to talk about simplicity and the importance of keeping things simple. In my last video about manners, I got an awful lot of responses - the vast majority saying that they do think manners are still really important and several writing me rants about how manners are dying along with other things such as courtesy, dress sense and punctuality.
