Context 2008: Acknowledgement [ARCHIVE]

Originally published on the Shirlaws Business Coaching Blog, 2007-2010. At the beginning of each year I set myself a theme, a focus point or guiding purpose for what I want to achieve this year and how I want to feel. This isn’t a laborious or detailed exercise. Being a ‘feeler‘, I usually sit on the…

HARMONY ALDRIDGE WORLD MAP

The Cookie from the Cookie Jar (2004 Book)

After the newly elected President is assassinated on election night, search for truth through the eyes of Cabinet and the media. This novel was originally released as a weekly serial during the 2004 US Presidential Election campaign.

The Procern [ARCHIVE]

Originally published on the Shirlaws Business Coaching Blog, 2007-2010. One of the things I love about being a business coach is that I can spend a lot of time working with staff on the ground for a business. I can support those who really know what’s going on, provide them with frameworks and, on occasion, advise them…

The Big Picture Shows a Colourful Future [ARCHIVE]

Originally published on the Shirlaws Business Coaching Blog, 2007-2010. I must have been about fourteen when I got sick of having my pens stolen out of my schoolbag, and started carrying them around in my top (read: geek) pocket. What started as function quickly evolved to my own version of style, and it didn’t take…

Monthly Update September 2019

Maybe I should be writing October’s already? (You can read last month’s update here; next month’s here.) Family If you’re just joining in, my beautiful wife and I took our (then) 4 month old daughter ‘on the road’ in August. She spent the whole of September outside of Australia, turning 6 months old on the…

Are You Failing by Doing the Right Thing? [ARCHIVE]

Originally published on the Shirlaws Business Coaching Blog, 2007-2010. I’m a big fan of the TV show House (that’s House M.D. for my US cousins). There was a great line on the show a few weeks ago, surprisingly not directed at the main character, about the difference between “saving patient lives” and “doing the right thing”. In other words, sometimes in a…

Monthly Update August 2019

Welcome to August’s monthly update, a month in which we visited 7 countries as a working, travelling, family. How did we survive? (You can read last month’s update here; And next month’s update here.) Family July was a taster, but August was when we took this show on the road. Flash has her first long…
