A Reminder Of What You Already Know

Sometimes the best bits of advice that find their way into my books are some new insight I would never have discovered myself. Other times they're a truth¬†I've always known, but expressed in such a succinctly powerful way that it makes a difference in my life because I actually remember and act on it.

The 'Wilson' part is pretty obvious, the 'Weekly' is due to Steven Pressfield's book getting me to 'turn pro' and committing to doing this regularly, and I'm using the word 'Whispers' because at the grand old age of 44 I find I don't need to shout so much any more. There are so many people out there desperately yelling to get attention and become 'an expert' that I thought I'd make this more of a quiet, fireside chat. I've realised that I think by writing, so by babbling on about what…
