Q4, 2020 Update

Since I’ve been struggling to find time to write monthly updates, I have decided to switch to quarterly instead. Since I’m lucky if more than 3 people read these, I tend to keep them for prosperity and tracking purposes. Work Life Lets start with FrameIT I guess After a bumper Q3 [relatively speaking any way], its fair to say that Q4 slowed down a bit, but it still provided a...

Monthly Summary – September

Its October, pretty unbelievable actually how fast the year has gone. I know it has been a pretty torrid one with COVID-19 and that ginger-haired muppet with his $700,000 hair causing a raucous every other day, but 2020 hasn’t been all bad. In my usual monthly round-up, I will give a quick summary of highlights through September. As usual, I touch upon work, investment, and life. Work-Life September has been...

Monthly Summary – June & July

Welcome to August, and thanks for stopping by. Below is a summary of what I and the family got up to during the months of June & July. Personal Life I usually touch upon this area last, but June brought about our long-awaited second child, as Robin Rush officially entered the world on 26th June 2020. That’s also why I am a month late on my June update. The ‘little...

Monthly Summary – May 2020 Update

Probably confused by the picture of a snail, but read on and I guess it will make more sense. May comprised the 2nd half of our 8-week lockdown in Singapore, and we started a phased re-opening from June 2nd. The re-opening is being handled rather strangely in my view, but as a non-voter, what does my opinion really matter. The good news is that some businesses, and life in general,...

Employee Side Projects For The Win

Some organisations, or perhaps just individual managers may frown upon the idea of their full time, salaried employees working on side projects outside of the office. For some, it might be hard to imagine a scenario where an employee doesn’t always feel fully satiated by everything that their existing role provides them, but for many – including myself, side projects have provided me with a constant learning and development opportunity,...

Review of April Work & Life

Welcome one and all to May. This is just the latest in my monthly articles that cover the prior month. I break things down by work, investment, and personal life. Work Life Lockdown in Singapore – extended to June 1st April has been a pretty sucky month, but needless to say – I am keeping everything in perspective. The Singapore government had announced wide-ranging lock-down measures, originally running through till...

February & March Update

February, March, and early April have certainly been a time of major disruption across the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to pick up speed, spreading heavily across Europe and the US in particular. Singapore has also started to suffer from the second wave of infections, and recently entered a ‘circuit breaker’ period [it’s really a lock-down], that effectively means non-essential businesses are shut down from 7th April – 4th...
