1. A quote I’m resonating with this week
I’m starting to collect quotes for my next book, and I just came across this perfect African proverb:
“There are 40 kinds of lunacy but only one kind of common sense.”
2. A brilliant piece of PR work
A couple of weeks ago in the UK, the fast food chain KFC ran out of chicken. Whatever you think of their food, as you can imagine, this is one of the worst things that can happen to a chain of chicken restaurants. Their PR department handled it absolutely brilliantly, and proved the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words. Have a look:
3. This week’s glimpse of the future
California has given companies the go-ahead to test fully driverless cars on public roads. Children being born today are unlikely to ever need to (or be in a position to) drive a car.
4. A powerful coaching session on valuing yourself & charging for what you do
In this excerpt from The Thriving Coaches Blueprint bootcamp, you’ll hear me coaching Jo Spencer, a freelance Arts Psychotherapist. Jo and I explore her whole relationship with money, and her ability to charge for what she does. This uncovers all kinds of questions about value and the beliefs that can shape our careers and our lives.
** Warning – I use a lot of explicit language in this session so you may want to put your headphones on if you’ve got children with you. https://www.jamiesmart.com/pcp13
5. This week’s 3 minute miracle
In 1995, English band Pulp hit the charts in a big way with their massive hit, Common People. The album it was taken from – Different Class – was huge, and won the Mercury Music Prize. However… a year earlier, they released a far better album, 1994’s His n Hers. There are so many great tracks on that album that it’s hard to choose one to share with you (E.g. Babies, Pink Glove, Do You Remember The First Time), but here goes: this is the wonderful Lipgloss – play it loud https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MDpGCTdJxw
