Here are the articles I published on my own blogs last week, just in case you missed them.
Although this article is concerned with advice about writing specifically, I think the general conclusion can be applied more generally. Basically, it's a plea to not suffer paralysis from analysis.
Again, this article has wider applicability than just writing. In a nutshell, it speaks to the fact that the benefits of doing something, such as studying on a course, can have farther reaching, wider and unforeseen benefits than simply the obvious.
If you want to see how a particular layout will look, you can test it using the sort of text you see in books, namely Lorem etc. This article describes how to do that in Word.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record (I wonder if anyone under the age of 30 understands that reference), the principles discussed in this article can be applied more widely than to business.
Lastly, this article was my answer to the seemingly growing phenomenon of people singing their own praises and self-promoting all over the place. I thought it would attract a load of flack, but it has proved to be fairly popular. Perhaps I'm not the only person who finds it all rather tedious and boring.
