Meet Steve Leighton – the Hasbean coffee legend

After a small, ahem, delay (about 15 months), the latest episode of The Remarkable Business Show is now live!

A huge thanks to my good friend, Steve Leighton for coming on the show.

Enjoy listening and for the full show notes and guest details, head on over to the episode page.

This episode is dedicated to my friend, Richard Wanderman.


Float documentary looks wonderful…

In the ultra-competitive sport of elite, stunningly-designed indoor model airplanes, a wild-card newcomer threatens to knock a teammate off his world champion throne.

Well, I never. I didn’t realise this was a thing. The trailer looks amazing and you can visit the official site here.

I remember making paper airplanes with my Dad when I was little. Nothing on this scale though.


Zuckerberg speaks

“As I think about the future of the internet, I believe a privacy-focused communications platform will become even more important than today’s open platforms. Privacy gives people the freedom to be themselves and connect more naturally, which is why we build social networks.”

Mark Zuckerberg

Privacy was probably a word they needed to understand a little while ago.

The Washington Post has a good take on Zuckerberg’s lengthy post on, what else, Facebook.

I hope this is truly the start of Facebook getting its act together.

Reactions to Zuckerberg’s announcement were swift and skeptical.

The Washington Post

Errr… yeah.


“I can’t afford it.”
“I don’t have the time.”
…almost always means, “this is not a priority.”
When we care, it’s amazing how much we can get done. One way to choose to care is to be clear about your priorities, which means being clear in your language.
And so we can say to ourselves, “I’d love to do that, but it’s not a priority.”
Remarkable work is usually accomplished by people who have non-typical priorities.

Seth Godin

Looks like we are on the same page.

How you prioritise your time is key.

Aimless and low-value tasks vs direction and high-value tasks to achieve your goals.

Decisions and action lead to focus and progress.

Remember that this applies to every aspect our lives. Love, friends, family and work.
