I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

One thing about build­ing dis­ci­pline, par­tic­u­lar­ly in the area of post­ing to a blog each day, is the need for ideas. There’s a sim­i­lar­i­ty between ideas and dis­ci­pline, in that the more you exer­cise those mus­cles the stronger they become.

  1. @amit and @philbowell — reminds me of wise words from my Mom many years ago … (when the Roy­al Mail was the only writ­ten mes­sage deliv­ery sys­tem in the UK ….)
    Mom: “Remem­ber … don’t for­get to write to me at least once a week — even bet­ter — every day.”
    Me: “Every day! There wont be enough to say every day!”
    Mom: “You will find that the more you write the more you will have to say, because then every­thing is impor­tant. If you only write once a month, there will be noth­ing impor­tant enough to write about.”

  2. @JohnPhilpin Sage advice from your moth­er I remem­ber back when I was in col­lege, sev­er­al friends and I would email back and forth every day or so—maybe short, but always some­thing to talk about. These days, it’s far few­er friends and only once or twice a year, and some­times it’s hard to think of things to write, because only the biggest events stick out at that distance.
