Tales from the Yorkshire Dales
Just back from a superb 2 week holiday in the Yorkshire Dales. Askrigg, where we stayed, has its own bakery, microbrewery and dairy, loads of walking routes and some challenging cycling (with some gruelling 1:4 hills). That to me is pretty much heaven.
But it wasn’t a complete holiday – every morning I was up at 5:30 working on my second book, The Green Executive, until 7:00 when the rest of the family started to stir. People often ask me how long it takes to write a book – my usual glib reply is “forever!”. To give you an idea, that 18-odd hours of intense, uninterrupted effort was long enough to read through the entire draft manuscript once through, annotate changes and make the edits (but not those which require any research). I need to do that at least twice more…
Anyway, busy week ahead. Don’t forget those free training courses I’m doing Wed & Thur. This month’s Low Carbon Agenda is out on Wednesday. You might also want to check out this article on green business leadership on Sustainability Forum.
