Welcome to our random musings. If Carlsberg could write blogs...

Change your life in 8 weeks

Posted on

It’s been a rock & roll summer. We could go on about the footy, Olympics, red/amber/green travel lists, vaccinations and more, but we’re not going to. Both Sanj and I are going to do what Art of Brill does best – keep it bloomin’ simple and tell you a little story.

What we can learn from the Annual Misery Index

Posted on

Yes, there is such a thing as the Misery Index. It’s published by Bloomberg and the CATO Institute, so it must be legit, right?

Vitamin Be

Posted on

At ‘Art of Brill’ we help people achieve full human-ness by working on their Vitamin Be. We’re less interested in your daily ‘to-do’ list and more interested in your ‘to-be’ list. Being an awesome human being requires you to ask ‘who am I being while I’m doing those tasks on my to-do list?’ So, for […]

Helping you bloom

Posted on

If you have a garden, you’ll notice dandelions are hardy and perennial. Basically, they crop up everywhere. They don’t require watering or feeding. You can mow them and they’re back in a day or two, shrugging off the recent beheading calamity, their yellowness tilting towards the sun. Orchids on the other hand… if you’ve ever […]

Life lag

Posted on

It had been my most hectic working year ever. I’d been building a business, working stupid hours, chasing my dream, straining every nerve and sinew in the pursuit of ‘success’.

Use natural lighting (real life: get outside) 3. Check your background (real life: less clutter) 4. Opt for […]

Teams Re-United

Posted on

When you get unlocked and you’re able to hug your loved ones. That’s when the magic happens. When you get to sit in a pub garden with family or friends. That’s when the magic happens. When you lay out your picnic blanket and open the sandwiches. That’s when the magic happens. When the James Bond […]

Depositing a billion pounds into your team’s psychological bank account

The parable of the pub lunch…

The one thing all organisations need to know…

Posted on

Go back a hundred years and the concept of happiness at work would have seemed too ridiculous to consider. Work was what you did to survive. You endured it because it allowed you to put food on the table. Gradually we began to realise there was a link to happiness and productivity. I spend 12 […]

The Absolute Truth About Lockdown

Posted on

As we approach the pandemic’s first birthday, it’s time for a home truth. You’ve been misled about lockdown. Lied to in fact. We’ve been grumbling about being locked down since March 2020 whereas the truth is that we’ve been locked down a whole lot longer than that. You’ve been locked down with yourself since the […]
