Turn Back Time

At the age of 41 (42 in three weeks), it’s easy for me to look back and imagine how life would be different if I had lived my twenties a little different. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t actually want to change anything about my twenties. I am perfectly content with how my life has turned out, particularly in regards to my wife and my children.

Moving On

It can often be difficult to establish what parts of your life or parts of you that should carry over from one part of your life to another. We all pick up habits and preferences along the way. However, what works in your twenties might not work in your thirties and could be holding you back from being successful as you move into your forties.  Continue reading “Moving On”
