I have nothing to say today so I won’t say it. Maybe I’ve got writer’s block! But then, that would make me a writer, so it can’t be that.

Perhaps there’s no news because, through writing these daily posts, I’ve finally developed insight; I can see that I’ve been kidding myself about my own importance, or something like that.

I’m in good company. Apparently, the BBC once announced there was ‘no news’ (on18th April 1930 at 6.30 am).

You’d think, that after 30 years working in and around the fields of personal development and psychology, I’d have plenty to write about. I used to think that too.

There are a number of posts written and almost ready to go. I write when things occur to me, and I thought I’d had some pretty brilliant occurrences. But that was before I saw the light (I mean this figuratively, I haven’t actually ‘seen’ anything. If I had, I’d write about it).

Reviewing my stock of almost-ready-posts I realised that none was good enough to publish yet, they need extra work so they’ll have to wait.

Enough of the excuses! I have no post ready for today because I spent messed up. I’ll spend the day thinking about that. Maybe it’ll inspire me.

  1. You are only human! Thank you for all the inspiring posts. Some new insights and others “already cracked it” ones. Have a nice walk in nature for more inspiration. Kind thoughts to you Barry.

  2. Everyone needs a day, or days, off Barry. Take yours and enjoy it! Your brain needs rest, and maybe even your body….don’t ever feel “forced” to write just because you write this blog please. Sharing your insights and constantly delving into the mind can sometimes be exhausting – pay attention to your own self and what it’s telling you. Do what Linda says and sit in nature, just contemplating your belly button even. Let that amazing brain of yours rest!

Work-life happiness

There’s life and there’s the job, right? Wrong. Instead of treating work and home as disjointed parts of the same existence, Anna Tims suggests a change in perception rather than a change in circumstances, and so re-infuse our lives with greater purpose and fulfilment. Work is not necessarily the enemy if it is managed correctly, and it can all be achieved without you having to trek through rain forests, climb a mountain or wear sackcloth.

What If We’re Wrong About Addiction?

What really causes addiction. And how can we overcome it? You might think that the experts know how to deal with addiction, and how to help people ‘rehabilitate’ themselves. It’s a reassuring thought, but incorrect. We are obsessed with punishment (after all, addicts do it to themselves, don’t they?), and the whole caboodle based on misconceptions […]
