Hey, its Simon.

I've gone and done it. First email out the door. Whoop whoop. Hopefully this has set in motion the Weekly Signal in perpetuity. To infinity, and beyooo - okay, let's not get carried away.

Seriously, thank YOU for joining me on this journey. You're not off the hook yet, though. I am going to rely on you for some early feedback on what's working and what's not. That okay? Cool.

If you can spare some time at the end of this, I'd really appreciate it if you hit that reply button and gave me a one-liner feedback report.

Enjoy installment numero uno. Please?


Coronavirus (COVID-19): Most of everything you need to know

The worldwide media has been awash with reports about the latest disaster to inflict itself on human kind: the latest Coronavirus. I've been largely uninformed, throwing around terms like Coronavirus, COVID-19 and SARS Coronavirus interchangeably like some sort of guru.

I decided to do some digging to feel a bit more enlightened. What is all the fuss about? Should we really be getting worried? Isn't the flu more deadly?

Here's my full report: A layman's guide to the Coronavirus and why it has everyone scrambling for tinned food - and whether you should be too.


Write down the three things currently taking up the majority of your mental fatigue.

What's the next step in tackling each problem? It might be picking up the phone, or travelling overseas. Write it down.

Now give each a deadline. When do you need these done by?

Lastly, how are you going to reward yourself when you've completed each of them.

Rinse, and repeat when your mind becomes cluttered.


Haruki Murakami on compassion...

"Always remember that to argue, and win, is to break down the reality of the person you are arguing against. It is painful to lose your reality, so be kind, even if you are right."
