Life lessons from Skepta.

Friday 20th May's top five is;

1) Video of the week;

Skepta - Man

I'm really late to the party with Skepta, having only given it a listen this last week, but it's  really good. I need to look up on Grime history, if any of you know, then hook me up.

2) Gig of the week;

2016 Northampton County Beer Festival

If you like beer, cider, ale, lager (and probably all the boozes) food and music then this is the place to be this weekend. Live music all weekend too. In my experience it does get busy so get in early to avoid cues.

3) Quote of the week;

"The moment you feel like giving up that's the moment you lose." - Skepta

I like this one because I'm not sure I agree with it. I've felt like giving up a few times, but that's when you either find your resolve and carry on, or actually give up. Still, if it helps you keep on pushing then it's all good.

4) Article of the week;

Seth Godin's Blog.

Seth Godin is a marketing guru of sorts, but not in that 'sign-up to my online course for $1000 and I'll tell you how to get that yacht' kind of way. He send daily e-mails, some one sentence some one page, but always insightful and informative. Usually stories or insights that give you genuine ideas about how to approach things, either designing/selling a product or choosing where to buy your groceries. The only blog that I read every single email from.

5) Thing of the week;

Headspace. I used to think meditation was a bit too patchouli, lentils and hippy-dippy for me. It turns out it's not, it's fairly straight forward and really beneficial. I say use Headspace because it's free to download and they do a free 10 minutes a day for 10 days course, give it a go, you'll be surprised.

See you next week,
