Innovating your life

I’m giving some of my old posts some new life, looking back I’m copying and where needs be re-touching some of my old posts. It’s going to be interesting to see where I was at then and what I wrote:



Innovating in our lives can make life interesting and maybe change it for the better. Life can be get boring when facing the same problems time and again, doing things in the same way that we’ve done countless times before. Changing how things are done and new ideas is the cornerstone of innovation, applying this to how we live can affect how we look on life – is it dull and unchangeable, or a living thing that’s fluid and changeable?

Innovation is something that we hear a lot about, especially in the technology driven world we live in. We should apply this to our own lives. How often does an idea come to you that you think is good but are too afraid to try? I say try it! Life gets boring doing everything the same all the time… Do something different. It doesn’t matter what it is. Not everything will work. But hey, that’s life.

What sort of things could things am I talking about?
– Do you feel you could do more for a loved one? Do it. Go nuts and surprise yourself.
– Unhappy in work? Do something, change it or change jobs and go for something that scares you.
– Even down to simple and boring things, go to paperless billing because you hate sorting paperwork. Change a utility supplier because you’ve been with them so long now.

It sounds simple, even daft but how many big and little things niggle us that that we do nothing about. Make your life and everything around it the way you want it. Own it and manage it.

The other option is to keep going as we are – and that’s no good is it?

    1. Aww… Thank you Charlie. It’s good to know that some of the great friends like you I have are always about.

      But the thing is, forget the blog. What else in your life can you innovate and change?

      Hope you’re well ☺️


      1. There is all sorts… Buy while it’s good too think about I don’t think it’s healthy to get too hung up about.

        What’s going on with you? Ready to go back to school? ☺️


  1. I love spending time just dedicated to coming up with new ideas. It was something I used to do intentionally but I am not so consistent with that habit.
    Today in an idea session, I came up with what I think is a brilliant idea for a story. Where I usually need to focus my attention is on taking the idea from innovation to execution phase.
    Thanks for the reminder and I would love to see more of your revised posts.


  2. I have found doing the same thing day after day yields 2 things. The first is cumulative incremental change, a concept I first heard of from Richard Dawkins. The second is knowledge by trial and error as described by Taleb in “Antifragile”.

  3. We are in some way very similar. Life has one single move: move on. Recycle our old manuscripts is a hard thing because at that time when we wrote all those articles we put all our heart and feelings on it. And it’s much more hard for us writers admit to ourselves that we were not good as we thought. Of course, we must consider a lot of variables about writing on Web as backlinks, SEO, Social Media, Hiring experts to improve our ranks. It’s a very expensive thing for 99% of us. I like Fernando Pessoa when he said about his works. My books and writings are like seeds of trees of trees. If they are really good they will grow up with strong roots and the tree will reach the skies. If they are not, that’s fine.
    I loved your honesty. In my opinion you are truly committed being honest with you and your writings. You really believe in what you are doing. For me, this the most powerful literary magic that you will need in your path.

      1. Busy busy busy! 😀 I’m already noticing a distinct lack of daylight too, between rainy days and the changing season… So I’ll have to do as much fiddly sewing now as possible! Have a good rest-of-week… The good news is that there should be some sunshine heading your way 😀
