    Getting the job done – at all costs

    The headline above has two elements. We probably all agree that getting the job done, be that at home or in the office, is a reasonable and valid goal. However, we probably don’t all agree that getting it done at all costs is acceptable in...

    Another birthday suffered

    As Mark Twain said: “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

    That was part of my week last week. Another birthday suffered.

    I use the word “suffer” advisedly. Not because it was painful, but it was...

    Living on the laptop

    How long have you been using a laptop? Most of your business life probably. But haven’t you just been using it as a tool in your working life?

    Fifty shades of normal

    Hands up those who have heard the phrase “the new normal”.

    Five ideas to fund rainy days

    These past few weeks have been a challenge for all of us.

    Coronavirus and your money

    The purpose of this article is not to discuss or opine on any medical issues associated with the virus. There are health professionals and Government instructions to deal with that.

    Pensions versus investments for retirement

    The National Pension Scheme (Occupational Pensions) Act 1998 as amended (the “Act”) became operative on January 1, 2000. This was a good thing.

    It made people aware of their financial future long before they would otherwise have thought...

  • Why bother with new year’s resolutions?

    Why bother with new year’s resolutions?

    Haven’t we stopped this new year’s resolution business yet?

    I will say at the outset that I have never made any resolutions — ever. I don’t believe in them, yet still wonder why some people do. You never keep them, do you? At least you...

    Planning for your future is simple

    Planning for your future is simple: do you believe that?

    Most people think it is important — but only a few actually do it. There is a hesitancy for many people — either caused by putting it off, or being scared to do it, or not knowing how...
