There’s no such things as perfection.

If you want to learn to box, you can read as many books and watch as many videos as you want, but until you climb into the ring and start trading blows with your opponent, you wont learn. Even when you have “learned”, you then have to continue practicing, because there is no “completed” section ...

Writing daily won’t make you money.

Writing daily won’t make you money, it will make you better at writing but if you don’t write daily, you won’t even improve on your writing. This year I’ve read so much about the power of writing and how it can improve business. I’m not entirely sure how it does that yet, but it doesn’t ...

Thoughts are human.

I tweeted this out today: Thoughts are human. Connections are made from thoughtful gestures. In a world of automation, don’t neglect human thought. — Siôn Rees (@rees_sion) October 13, 2020 The thought was inspired by a newsletter I read by David Hieatt (If you haven’t subscribed to his newsletter I highly recommend you do). Anyway, ...

Psychology, Money, Smartphones and Society

I have so much on my mind that i don’t know what to say / write. I think I’ve been neglecting my shower thoughts as the foundations of my blog topics. Almost as much as I’ve been neglecting this blog. This week I purchased The Psychology of Money by Morgan Housel, I’m really enjoying it. ...

6 days of silence

It’s been 6 days since my last post. It’s a Wednesday night 22:54pm and I’ve decided there’s no better time than now to write something. To set the mood of this post, I currently have this song playing in the background: Now that the mood is set I will continue with my thoughts. To be ...

Water is a complex substance.

Bruce Lee once said: “Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into ...

Publishing Patterns

Patterns are interesting. They can be aesthetically pleasing to look at. They can help measure positive and negative connotations within an individual’s behaviour. The can be studied within business to measure levels of business throughout different parts of the year. A pattern is one of those things that means one thing, but means 100’s of ...

Pseudonym’s within creativity.

Sick Boy was a design pseudonym I used to go by when I was younger (between the age of 14 – 21 years old). I had it up until just after I graduated from university. Actually, one time, when I was in uni, a lecturer ridiculed me in front of the class for using the ...

The post with a 2 day publish delay

I wrote this post 2 days ago, but I neglected to publish it. Tonight I watched a program called The Stranger. Well, each episode is between 5 – 9 minutes long, so I watched about 8 of them. Anyway, this show is so strange, while watching one of the episodes, an idea popped into my ...

One click holds such potential

A click holds the potential to be an extremely valuable operation. It also holds the status of being completely ineffective. — Siôn Rees (@rees_sion) September 10, 2020 I tweeted this today. I think it’s true. There’s such potential in one click. If you have the system set up correctly, one click could send money directly ...

Leverage your time to increase your productivity

I tweeted quite a bit this weekend. One tweet every 30 minutes to be precise. I know this because I scheduled them. I spent an hour thinking of ideas (tweets), and I spent 10 minutes scheduling them for the weekend. This allowed me to be productive in other areas of my life (the house renovation) ...

Personal stress because we’re all human after all.

Today I feel stressed, but instead of wallowing in self pity, I thought I’d write about it. Everyone experiences stress. I’m not under any more pressure than Kevin the Butcher down the road (he’s not really real), however, nonetheless, I’m stressed and I’m venting to my blog. Stress 1: Work Work is providing me with ...

Invisibility is a superpower.

Invisibility is a superpower. Banksy said it. I read it online. Ivonne Aldaz (the lady who interviewed me for the future of marketing), she shared it. I saw it, I loved it, I stole it. Anyway, it hit me like a tonne of bricks. Invisibility is a super power. I thought about it for days ...

A list at the end of August.

Different kind of writing today. More of a list of things. Not a perminent change to the writing style, but an attempt at trying something new, because – why the hell not. Anyway, few things: Here’s a list of thoughts, insights and discoveries I’ve had / come across this week. Distractions kill the flow of ...

The blurred lines of audience power and influence.

Yesterday I was added to a Twitter thread by someone with 5K followers. I wasn’t aware this was going to happen, but when it did I saw myself gain a handful of new followers. Obviously my concepts resonated enough with these individuals to want to see more. SYSTEM 540 In what seems like a build-up ...

Multi-tasking isn’t good or productive.

If you intend on completing a task, make sure you focus exclusively on it. Pay attention to what you are doing and complete it. This doesn’t mean that if you start a book you should finish it in one sitting. However, if you aim to complete a chapter – do it without doing anything else. ...

Death or Glory

I’ve noticed that there has unintentionally been the multiple use of the term ‘Death or Glory’ within the imagery of this website. This is’t because I strive for death or glory. The reason behind this term being in my life at all is because of my tadcu (grandfather in Welsh). When i was younger, he ...

Invest in yourself.

Invest in yourself to build character. We’re constantly evolving, but the harsh truth is, the quality of our evolution lays solely on our own decisions and the self initiated lessons we learn from our mistakes. No one is perfect, and everyone will make mistakes, after all, we’re just a global population of complicated apes. Chimpanzees ...

Perception leads to presumption.

Culture is normalising the public exhibition of life, often geared by a subconscious intention of perception. Perception comes with a neglect of honesty and truth. This leads to presumption from the audience. Be mindful, there is both a positive and negative bias connected to the presumptions of your audience. Value: A gentle reminder that when ...

3 Topics 1 Post

Topic 1: I got recognised. Not in the conventional way on the street or anything, but I stood out enough for someone to ask for my insights. Daily writing, consistent topic tweeting and being passionate about what I do meant I was provided with the opportunity to answer some questions and give some insight for ...
