After a year and a half, it seems that more people than ever are looking for a change in their lives. In this episode I look at how to handle team changes in the wider context of what some have dubbed "The Great Resignation".

12. Steve Jobs

This week marks ten years since Steve Jobs passed away, so in this episode I share how the great man himself inspired me early on.

After a brief hiatus, I'm back for our eleventh episode. This week I share why it's so important to take a break, to rest, and recharge your batteries.

10. Time Management

We've reached the huge milestone of episode 10 – thank you, dear listener! In this episode I talk through what I have learned about time management – from how I use my calendar, to the importance of making time for reflection.

9. Finding Focus, Writing, and Habits

In episode 9 I share why it's so hard to find and regain focus in a business and how I'm working to address it. I also explain how writing helps me break down complex topics, and revisit some of the habits I've been working on over the last few weeks.

6. Planning, and Building Healthy Habits

Why do I hate planning so much? This week I share how I've reframed "planning" to help me do more of it. Plus I share what I've learnt from the latest book I've been reading: Atomic Habits.

5. Working On vs In the Business

Last week I spent too much time "in" the business – actioning urgent tasks, contributing on design, writing, and making small, quick decisions. Instead, I should have been spending it "on" the business. So what am I doing about it?

4. Vision vs Profit, Realism vs Optimism, and How to be More Helpful

A few things on my mind: is it OK to be unclear on the vision of your business? Why are startups so hard? How do you balance realism vs optimism? And can you be more helpful with your team?

3: Anxiety vs Exercise, Bad Decisions vs No Decisions, and Goals

In episode three I talk (very) openly about how I'm working through some business challenges, discuss the value of transparency, the importance of goals, and why I benefit so much from a healthy routine.

In episode two of Lost and Founder, I share my latest thinking on strategy, why strategy is different to tactics, and talk about building healthy habits both at work and home.
