Nimble has flow the nest

It’s official. The first batch of Nimbles were posted out a few days ago to people all over the UK and even to the US and Australia!

As a product based business, and coming from a product design background myself, shipping out physical products to people that have put up their hand and said they want one is a truly amazing feeling.

Just knowing that an idea I had has been realised as a physical product and is now making peoples’ lives better makes all the hard work and ups and downs worth braving a thousand times over.

Here’s hoping Geco Hub manufacturing finishes soon and we can get them sent out too!

The post holiday “slump”

I can’t be the only one can I? You go on holiday to unwind, to switch off, to day dream… and on your return you struggle to wind up, switch on and focus!

So what’s the solution? Sorry but I haven’t found any golden formula to achieving 0-100% efficiency in 60 seconds. It seems to me that the best thing for it is will power.

Will power?

I know, how ridiculous.

But here’s the thing, after a few days on holiday I struggled to get back into the swing of things and the only thing for it was to will myself to do it and just “get started”. Falling back into a work routine that has worked in the past seemed to help too.

Maybe getting back down to things after time away is always something that’s going to be hard and that the best thing for it might just be to practice.

Hang on though, practicing getting back into the swing of things after a holiday would mean more holidaying right…? I’m okay with that!
