    Time vs Value

    I recently visited the serene beaches of Mozambique and decided my time with family and friends was more important than access to a network for my devices. So I decided to not get a local sim card and stay offline. To my surprise the dogs and the house were still …Read More »

    Sleeping On The Job

    The worlds biggest ride hailing company owns no vehicles. The worlds largest retailer holds no merchandise. You know where I’m going with this. We’ve all heard the rhetoric -and quite frankly it’s getting a bit old- but it’s something that we can all relate to. I guarantee you are a …Read More »

    Get Your Head In The Cloud

    Roy L. Smith wrote that the successful businessman is the one who finds out what the matter is with his business before his competition does. Failure to anticipate or react to competition, technology or changes in the marketplace can lead a business into the red zone. When last did you …Read More »

    You’ve Got Mail

    Picture this. It’s a Monday morning. You’ve just got into work feeling breezy after a good weekend filled with your favourite things.

    Reboot Your Brain

    I recall a popular phrase growing up: “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks!”. I’m of the opinion you can, but it requires effort, a hunger and thirst for the required reboot. Imagine walking in the jungle on a well-travelled path to get water (essential resource). You believed there …Read More »

    The Innovator’s Dilemma

    Back in 2017 I wrote a blog about the inevitable failure of the world’s most successful businesses. At the time I thought it was edgy and controversial – it wasn’t. Upon re-reading my spew a few years on, I realized that there was a fundamental gap in my reasoning. Call …Read More »

    Year of the Dog

    Interesting would be the politically correct way to summarise 2018 (is political correctness still a thing under Trump?), but I think that crazy is probably more appropriate. Barely anything has gone to script, and so we thought it would be a good idea to take a quick look back at …Read More »
