Balance, Burnout and Bouncing Back

Balance, Burnout and Bouncing Back The catch phrase of “Work / Life Balance” is bandied about with alarming regularity these days – especially on corporate situations and workplaces. While much lip service is given to this phrase, it is actually an oxymoron.  It’s a which-came-first-the-chicken-or-the-egg conundrum – and is quite possibly a complete load of old bollocks.

The Crappy King and the Tree

The Crappy King and the Tree – World Tour Most Kings are regal, serious, leaders.  Most Kings have experience and have been brought up to be Kings, like their fathers and mothers before them. Most Kings know what is going on – at least for most of the time. I don’t. I am a crappy King. I suspect that there is a large shepherds crook waiting in the wings for the opportune moment to yank me off the royal stage. I am, however, an excellent Tree…. even if I do say so myself.
