Deckheads 

I trust you had a great Easter weekend, I did. I did fu£K all Easter Monday, it could have been Christmas. I mean nothing. No work, although I find it difficult to call what I do work. No reading, writing, listening to podcasts, studying or working out, I have even had an Easter Egg. Musical Youth were number one in the charts with Pass The Dutchie, the last time I recall having one. I just ate shit, watched Basketball, Boxing and napped. I did manage to shower. I was thinking I could get use to this shit. Starmix Harribos, Walkers Pawn Cocktail Crisps, I was ballin.

I struggle to relax. I realise it’s vital that I do. I allow for cheat days and the odd film, but I work every day. With that said I really enjoyed my Monday, I allowed myself to completely shut down and not feel guilty for doing so. Cows are meant to graze all day, we’re not. My vision for the Deckhead imprint is compelling but my energy needs to be measured. Yes the difficult work needs to be done but so does rest. 

 

If you get tired learn to rest. Not to quit.

I’ve been writing a book over the past year, it's been one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It’s a story about a boy, me and the impact of the choices he makes. I’ve gone through a myriad of emotions while writing it, on occasion I've been reluctant to do so. What I’ve learnt throughout the process is just to do something. Rig the game to win, set the barrier off entry so low that it reduces the resistance and gives me momentum. 

We can get stuck by the enormity of a task believing an herculean effort is required, this isn't necessarily true. Break down the task to give yourself momentum, underachieve consistently. I must write a sentence, I can write a fucking sentence. What often happens is a sentence becomes two, then a paragraph, a page and now I’m looking at a Sunday Times Best Seller. I jest. Sometimes I just write a fucking sentence and that’s it, at least it’s one more sentence near completion. You're not always going to feel like doing shit but you can always underachieve consistently you Deckhead.

 

So if it's cool we can do a little sumthin' sumthin'(do a little sumthin' sumthin’)

Hard Knock Life

The quality of your life is determined by the one thing, doing hard shit. The awkward conversations, the mundane routines where the novelty has worn the fuck off, fill in the gap. When we confront hard things with time they becomes easier and you’ll be capable of more. Comfort is insidious. The personal validation you’ll find from doing hard shit despite the outcome is intoxicating.  

You’re welcome

It’s Alright, I feel it

That’s pretty much how I feel about all the content I produce. Having run a Business-to-business (B2B) where one business makes a commercial transaction with another, our ventures now involve selling direct to consumer. 

On face value it could be argued that the work to date isn’t resonating with the market, given in my eyes it’s alright and I feel it. What I would add is empathy is at the heart of everything we do. Do we want to make a couple of quid? Abso-fucking-lutely. However, we want to make what our customer thinks sounds and looks great, more. With that in mind I think we’ll be Alright.

 

 

Times A Wastin

When I was younger I was consumed with the acquisition of things. Wrecked with insecurities about myself I believed they would give me a sense of self, they didn’t. Now’s I ah man mi jus’ a jus' a burn collie weed in a chalwa. I just a rub it in a chalwa. Well that’s not exactly true, the song just occurred to me while writing. Now I’m older I place more value on my health, time and energy.

My laptop was on death’s door, so I decided to replace it. Customarily, I used to buy them from Apple but due to the protracted nature to get them repaired and the cost if the truth be told, I began buying them from independent retailers which with time became an ordeal itself. With the need for another one, habitually I bought one from an independent retailer given I need to watch the pounds like Weight Watchers right now. Just because you’re accustomed to doing something, it doesn’t necessarily translate that you should keep doing it.

Fuck me, what a God awful, decision that was. While the laptop was within my budget it cost me way more in terms of the time wasted trying to resolve the issues that came with it. Fucked me right off, but I only have myself to blame. Money is a poor master, great slave. Our health and time are our most valuable assets, with the object of money I believe being to facilitate them as best as we can. Got to go and unpack my new MacBook, not the kind of pounds I care to be losing, I’m skinny enough. 

 

Luv U Better

My designer and myself parted ways last week. A disagreement occurred concerning the delivery of a piece of work. Admittedly his departure will derail our output but only momentarily. Immensely talented he will be missed but the truth of the matter is I quite relish the challenge ahead as opposed to feeling aggrieved. I feel I have every right to feel aggrieved, but I’d rather focus on the possibility. Possibility creates more possibilities, that’s a lot of possibilities but you get my gist. Toward better I’d say.
