Good morning all – and happy Saturday!
As the saying goes, there are decades when nothing happens – and there are weeks when decades happen.
The last few weeks have been that way for me.
When I turned 40 last year, I set out a few goals for the next decade.
Not a bucket list, but rather some criteria of how I want to spend the final stretch before turning 50 – both professionally and personally.
Well, a couple of days ago I turned 41. Ten percent of the journey to 50 is now behind me.
In that time frame, I’ve managed to make a fair bit of progress on the goals I’ve set out last year. So much so that we’ve got a number of big life events coming up over the next 6 months.
Leaving the UK is now pretty much a fait accompli – most likely before the end of this year. And so is a job change.
More details on both to come in due course – but I am certainly beyond excited for what the future holds.
In the meantime, I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the top-notch personal reads below!

“We spend the first 20 years of our lives dreaming of what life could be.
We spend the next 20 years attempting to force the world as it is into the world as we wish it to be.
Eventually, we stop banging our heads against the brick wall. Learn acceptance. Outgrow ambition. Trade hope for reality. Lower expectations. Stop swimming against the tide. Make the best of it.
Did we give up or just grow up?”
