There are some things that I’ve thought a lot about over the years and so to save reinventing the wheel, I’ll share with you the punchline

The above is very easy to transport and feels a lot nicer to sit down to.

How to increase flexibility

Related to the above I found that this exercise is a good one to do throughout the day to stretch out your back.

In terms of “serious” work to improve flexibility I’ve tried lots of blog posts, Youtube videos etc and found that the GOWOD app is best for increasing mobility. There’s a monthly “flexibility diagnostic” and then daily stretches to improve mobility in problem areas.

Don’t be too put off by the pictures of bulking athletes.

How to choose a job

There have been a few things I’ve written over the years. How to think about your career is an email I sent to a friend which probably summarises it best.

How to find a good area to live in

In 2015 I wrote a post about how you could find the next up and coming area of London by looking at the number of chicken shops and coffee shops (read a write up of the fallout here).

Now I’d recommend using a great tool called PropertyData which allows you to search for all kinds of useful property investment opportunities.
