Hi, I'm Daniel Clough

I write articles on how to live a productive, balanced and fulfilled life.

I also send out a weekly newsletter where I share one brief idea from me, and a few from others (only ones I think are fantastic).

Pop your email in the box below to sign up. It might just be the shortest and best newsletter you ever sign up to.

    About Me

    I'm a highly driven leader and general manager, with over 20 years experience in the technology space. I have a track record for creating transformational change and turnarounds.

    I've been a founder and an employee. I've worked in early stage fast growth startups and established, mid size companies (private and VC / PE backed). For more on my background, check out my LinkedIn.

    I'm passionate about personal growth, and living life to the fullest. I like to keep fit and healthy. I read a lot and I don’t go far without some type of music playing (mostly hip-hop).

    I'm an ISTJ. I like things uncluttered and simple. I drink lots of tea. Oh, and Larry David and David Goggins are my heroes (for very different reasons!).

    How did I do that?

    Some big improvements to my daily planning process

    September 22, 2020 in Life, Productivity

    Getting things, and getting the right things done. That’s what it all comes down to.

    Thinking about the future is super useful. But, at some point you have to organise yourself on a daily basis, and actually get things done.

    I have a very specific process for planning my days, and getting things done. It hasn’t changed much over the last few years, and had settled down – or at least I thought it had.

    Be where your feet are

    September 8, 2020 in Focus, Life, Mindset

    Try this. Take a breath, and say to yourself – ‘Be where your feet are

    You’ll find your awareness goes straight to your feet. You should then feel a connection with the ground. And from there, a self awareness and connection with your body.

    This will snap you straight into the present moment. A feeling of calm should come over you.
