I’m a huge fan of Peter Drucker’s work. This first article is a great example of his wisdom. It relates to teaching, but I think could be applied to any occupation – rather than being pre-occupied with being successful we should concentrate on being useful [ Dave Stuart Jr 3 min read]

As someone who, like many of you I’m sure, has to decide each day what I’m not going to do rather than what I am going to do, I thought this next piece had some great tips on managing time more effectively. The piece even contains one of my favourite Drucker quotes Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things.”  [Rescue Time 3 min read]

I hope you have a lovely weekend. I’ll be getting ready for the Big Event Christmas. We will be spending Christmas Day with friends so no cooking for me. Yay! It’s also forecast to be T-shirt weather here in SW France 😎

There will be no TWSH next week as I’ll be recovering from having consumed my own bodyweight in turkey and mince pies, but I’ll be back before the New Year.

Wishing you all a wonderful festive season.
