Has Covid Finished Off the Commute to Work?

As someone who’s worked remotely for a good chunk of my professional life, I’ve always been dubious about the need for companies to require downtown office spaces. Yes, the social aspect of being around your colleagues can be hugely beneficial, both in a professional mindset and a mental health one – but apart from that, do we really need to...

Remember When There Were Days of the Week?

So today’s Wednesday, April 15. Though it’d be hard to tell that by looking out into my yard today, with the fresh dump of snow we received overnight. Seriously, anyone would be forgiven for thinking that we’d skipped a couple of seasons, flipped summer and fall the bird, and just headed straight back to winter. Seemingly,...

It’s OK to Get Angry

So it’s midweek here in Port Sydney, Ontario, where I live. Our kids are on the third day of their extended March Break and, much like everyone else in this new normal we find ourselves in, it’s starting to kick in. The frustration. The boredom. And, yes, the anger. Anger that life will probably be like this for beyond...

On Blogging Again, and Other Little Changes

So a year or so ago – January 11, to be precise – I published a piece on this blog about some of the changes that I was going to be making. I’d been experimenting with podcasting for a few months leading up to the post, and had really enjoyed the experience. Additionally, due to the work I was doing professionally, the desire,...

The Departure Lounge is Getting Fuller These Days

The departure lounge is getting fuller these days. A quote from a book I’ve just finished, “Made in Scotland: My Grand Adventures in a Wee Country” by Scottish comedic legend Billy Connolly. It refers to a conversation between him and an old friend. Both men are in their 70’s, and seeing more of their friends die around them as...

People Are Upset About the Super Bowl Halftime Show – Really?

With the Super Bowl weekend just gone, it seems more people are talking about the halftime show with Shakira and JLo than the actual winners of the game. And, to be honest, it’s kind of ridiculous. Across multiple social media channels, posts were shared – and continue to be – from people appalled by the outfits the two Latina...

Episode 9: The Fallacy of Big Meaning Success

Often in life, we’re told big equals successful. Bigger houses, bigger bank accounts, bigger pay checks. Yet is this true? Does big really mean success? Or is success defined by how you’re truly seen, versus how you feel you should be seen? This week’s episode. Slaintevar. Subscribe: iTunes | Stitcher | Spotify | Pocket...

The End of a Blog? Not Quite – But All Change at DannyBrown.me

I’ve been writing on this blog since the end of September 2008. That’s just over 10 years here, give or take a month or two. In that time, I’ve published almost 1,400 posts, originally starting out writing about marketing, PR, social media, and all the other stuff that came with it at that time. But I got bored with that, and started writing...

On Making the Right Decision

In life and in business, we often ask – and are asked by others – the question, How do you make the right decision?” For me, it comes down to one thing: Will your family be proud? No matter what you do during the day to make things happen, there is one simple fact: If you can go home to your wife/husband and children...
