SFTW is a weekly email I send to my team, recapping top of mind thoughts and curating some useful and fun links from across the web. 

I fell off the wagon this week.

I started out with good intentions, and tried to create a new habit in my work, but I broke it after a few weeks.

What do you do when you fall off the wagon?  Or when something doesn’t work? Or when you fail at something?

Start again.  Just get up, and get moving. It’s absolutely the best choice.

On the wall of every gym is the poster: “Winners never quit, quitters never win“.  It’s true with every walk of life, not just daily squats or 5km on the treadmill.

So, if you take a knock, think about how you get straight back up and get on with it.

By the way, I’m back on the wagon. It took a bit of effort to correct the mistake, but I’m back to the habit I set myself.

Something from the Web

This popped up in my ‘memories’ on Facebook this week, it’s a great piece of advice that really helped me in 2016.

This blog is full of beautiful gadgets, when design was a real thing.  Do you have a doppleganger somewhere? These people do, and they are incredibly alike! I love that word, DOPP-EL-GANGER – excellent.

I know that there are plenty of board game fans in the team, I noticed that there is a new monthly column in the Guardian – especially for board gamers.

A few of us were talking about winning the lottery this week, and then this news story popped up on timeline. Seems like a good use of $38 million!

Finally – 88 life lessons from books read in 2016. Some great stuff in here.
