A request has flooded in for me to enable comments on this blog. It is now done and comments should be active (can’t check on my own computer, it appears, so need to look somewhere else to confirm*). Feel free to participate in lively debate, and by sharing your observations and insight.

I have not switched on the comments function until now because, in the past, my main blog (www.barrywinbolt.com) was assailed by an unremitting stream of spam, despite my efforts to control it. Also, as it was the early days for this blog (I launched in in September), I wasn’t sure that enough people would want to comment.

This is fast becoming my main blog now as I shift my focus from work that involves travelling (as it has for most of my working life), to work I can do sitting down at home. I am finding different ways to package the nonsense I call ‘my ideas’. I am flattered that people are reading my posts and glad that some of you would like to comment, so I bow to your polite requests

Today, comments, tomorrow, who knows? Thanks for following me, I can promise even better value with more extras in the New Year. I’m not sure about the quality, but the quantity will surely increase.

* Though I have enabled comments I have not yet been able to check that everything is working as it should be. Give it a couple of hours, and if comments still cannot be posted I’ll call in an expert to fix it. Thanks for your patience.

If you are really serious about making things happen for yourself this post tells you one really vital thing you must do.

More Is Not Necessarily Better

Is choice good for us?
When I was a kid crisps (chips if you are outside the UK), came in one variety, ready-salted. Now we have thirty-six varieties and counting.

Having many options is not necessarily better for us, in fact it can distract and limit us. Some say that limiting choice could actually make our lives better.
