Hopes and fears

3 years ago, for day 13 by Fred Rivett

I went to the gym for the first time in years yesterday. And I really enjoyed it. I have had a certain view of "the gym" for a while. It contains huge gym bro's, me generally not fitting in and being looked down upon by these superior creations. But that...

You got this

3 years ago, for day 12 by Fred Rivett

A friend of mine tweeted a question recently, asking who people's favourite brand campaigns are. My immediate thought was Nike. Their Just Do It slogan is legendary, and they've hammered home variants of this message for years. There's the more recent campaigns from Colin Kaepernick (believe in something, even if...

The gym

3 years ago, for day 11 by Fred Rivett

There's something about the gym, that to a man, feels very manly. All those bro's with bulging biceps who've been going since they were 3 years old and know everything there is to know like the back of their hand. Little known fact, I can count the amount of times...

And stretch

3 years ago, for day 10 by Fred Rivett

Stretching is important. Well, depending on your goals that is. If your goal is to remain the same person you are today, then I advise against stretching. If your goal is to improve yourself in any way, then stretching is key. Carol Dweck, in her 2006 book Mindset: The New...


3 years ago, for day 9 by Fred Rivett

Fair warning: todays post is winding and unfocussed, it should really be split out into two or three separate posts. But I have a word target to hit, and I need to get back to work, so here's some words on connections. What does the fox say? I never learnt...

My heroes journey

3 years ago, for day 8 by Fred Rivett

Why do you do what you do? But more importantly, where do you want to go, and why? I've been thinking about these questions from a first principles perspective. I've believed and worked towards building skills to build my own business for about 5 years now, and I'm not fully...

To boldly go

3 years ago, for day 7 by Fred Rivett

Today is one of those. I've got a meeting that will have a big impact on what's next for me, and I've been wrestling with what I should do for a few weeks now. Opportunity cost is a bummer. Never knowing that saying yes to this is saying no to...

Fork in the road

3 years ago, for day 6 by Fred Rivett

What are the times in your life you remember most fondly? Maybe it's a special moment from childhood, with someone you love. Maybe it's the holiday you'd always wanted to go on. Maybe it's when you came to a fork in the road of your life and made a tough...

Taken for granted

3 years ago, for day 5 by Fred Rivett

It's funny what we take for granted. Pretty much everything, really. We take for granted that the seat we sit on won't break. We take for granted that when we try to raise our right hand, our right hand actually moves (which is pretty darn mind-blowing). We take for granted...


3 years ago, for day 4 by Fred Rivett

This year is the year of health, for me. Last year was a start, I went from no physical activity beyond walking to running 10k's regularly. But that was just a taster for this year. I've come to realise that we are far more able to influence circumstances than we...
