Andrew’s Blog: Money won’t make you happier, but this will.

A friend of mine recently swerved and crashed to avoid hitting a deer with his car. He is fine. So is the deer. This blog isn't about reshaping the Bambi narrative where the young, loveable deer grows up to force drivers off the road in a dark twist on the Disney classic. My friend is okay. His car is not. He called for roadside assistance, he was returned safely home and Bambi lived to see another day in the woods.

Andrew’s Blog: The Truth, The Whole Truth and Everything But The Truth

Forgiveness is said to be one of the most precious gifts we can bestow on others. More valuable than gold. More precious than diamonds. And an even more personal gift than personalised socks. When it comes to recipients, there are few things they want more than the notion of forgiveness.

Andrew’s Blog: From Frustration to Innovation

I am not a data-driven person. I don't get my kicks from forensically going over spreadsheets with a fine-tooth comb. I am not excited by graphs displaying information like an enthusiastic, multi-coloured lie detector test. I am not encouraged by percentages, statistics, pie charts or any other form of fact delivery… and that's a fact.

Andrew’s Blog: How To Save The Planet and Other Achievable Goals

You can forget about the Earth's increasing temperature. You can, guilt-free, stay in your pyjamas for breakfast and lunch. It is on Sunday morning, where you can be as laidback as you like, where you can convince yourself, just for a few hours, that everything is going to be absolutely fine.

Andrew’s Blog: Opening Doors and a Can of Worms

The other day I held the door open for my daughter, and she asked me, “Daddy, why do girls always go first?” 
My daughter is seven years old. She is head-strong, clever, brave and kind. I rarely worry if she is ready to enter the real world because I am more concerned that the real world is not ready for her.

Andrew’s Blog: Don’t Sugar the Pill

I have made grown men cry. I am not bragging about this. I am also not suggesting that grown men should not cry. Quite the opposite, I am happy to see a rejection of the toxic masculine norms that plague our society. A world where men feel ashamed and unable to express their emotions. I am not at all saying grown men shouldn’t cry. They should. But I reserve the right not to be the reason they cry, and often I have been...

Andrew’s Blog: “You’re Failing” – and Other Loud Thoughts in Your Head.

If your inner voice is as loud and as consistent as mine, you will probably have doubted every single decision you make. I often think that I am failing as a husband or letting my children down as a father. Or losing my way as an athlete and wavering as a business leader, along with other negative thoughts that enter the mind and claim squatters rights in my head.

Andrew’s Blog: This is Hard to Swallow

It is difficult, maybe even impossible, to imagine that the most dangerous and potentially damaging things to your health in your kitchen are not the sharp knives or that mega-seven-speed-blender-mix-4000 contraption you bought on a whim in the sale. Still, the things most damaging to your health are sitting in your fridge and your food cupboards.
