Either way

2 years ago, for day 43 by Fred Rivett ⚑

I'm cool either way. Whatever way this turns out, I'm ok with that. This is quite a healthy place to be, I think. At the moment I've a lot of unanswered questions about what the next few months of my life looks like, both in my work life and personal...


Daily

2 years ago, for day 42 by Fred Rivett ⚑

Today. Today is all I can control right now. More accurately, today is all I can affect right now. Tomorrow is tomorrow Fred's problem, and yesterday has come and gone. Despite this, I often spend a lot of my time thinking about tomorrow. How will this thing go that's on...


My fingers are cold

2 years ago, for day 41 by Fred Rivett ⚑

I’m writing this from my phone as my cold fingers tap away at my glass screen. It’s cold here in London but my heart is warm. I’ve spent the evening with friends, and friends are an important part of my life. That may sound obvious. Of course, Fred. But it’s...


Comparison

2 years ago, for day 40 by Fred Rivett ⚑

"Comparison is the thief of joy." You'll have seen that on a poster, coffee cup, or instagram post, no doubt. Sayings like this can be a bit airy fairy at times. Ok cool. Whatever. The Pinterest-generation are reeling out another motivational quote. It's easy to glaze over, I know I...


Mental energy

2 years ago, for day 39 by Fred Rivett ⚑

What are you thinking about right now? No, not simply the words I'm writing. But what else? What's running in the background of your mind? What's nagging at your attention throughout the day? We all have many things vying for our attention. Throughout the day our mind will wander around...


Creativity

2 years ago, for day 38 by Fred Rivett ⚑

What is a creative? I'm not sure, really. We often define "creatives" as those who design or make stuff. But as with most things, creativity is on a scale, and can be expressed in many different ways. Last night I met up with a bunch of creative folks from my...


Aching

2 years ago, for day 37 by Fred Rivett ⚑

Today I am aching. I've been going to the gym now for a few weeks, but yesterday I went at it hard. I pushed myself in a few ways, and I'm still aching. Aching when we work out is a good sign. It's a sign we've pushed ourselves beyond our...


Input, output, outcome

2 years ago, for day 36 by Fred Rivett ⚑

What control do you have over your life? In many ways, you don't. No man is an island. Everyone operates in some form of community. We can't control what others think or do. Influence, yes, but control, no. But in other ways, we have so much control. We can choose...


Disappointment

2 years ago, for day 35 by Fred Rivett ⚑

Disappointment is inevitable. The only way to avoid it is to do nothing, be nothing, say nothing. That's what Elbert Hubbard says about criticism, and it's true for disappointment too. One of the guiding principles of my life comes from a quote from Nelson Mandela: "May your choices reflect your...


Memories

2 years ago, for day 34 by Fred Rivett ⚑

This morning has been a lazy one. I've been reading a bit, journalling and taking it slow. Amongst all that I caught myself scrolling back through my Instagram feed, with vivid memories re-arising as I went. Memories are special. They're also strange. I don't really get how they work. Though...
