Hey <<First Name>>, Welcome back to The Sunday Summary, a collection of insights and my behind the scenes from the past week.

🚕 I'm experimenting with (in the taxi):
Working daytime hours
One of the things I begrudge most about working in the taxi is the fact that I always work evenings.  One of the main reasons I work this pattern is that driving into London at 14:00 and leaving for home at 00:00 is the most effective way to beat traffic. I also enjoy after the rush hour when traffic calms around 20:00-21:00 (although 22:00 - 23:00 burst traffic can be just as bad as day traffic).
I love consistency and routine, but every now and again a shake up is required.  So one day a week I'm opting to work daytime (approx 09:00 - 18:00).  I'll let you know how this goes and probably will make a video about it 😊 

☀️ A short break away:
Porthcawl - Wales

Beautiful weather, scenery and great time away with the lads. One of the most knackering weekends for a while and took me a few days to get over this.  Here's a few photos, (clips at the end of the email):


It doesn't always go to plan...

📖  I'm currently reading:
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind - Yuval Noah Harari

A huge fan of 21 Lessons for the 21st Century (one of my top ten reads ever), I sought to go back to Harari's original book.
This is incredibly thought provoking, the way that history which would normally be very hard to quantify is broken down and explained is incredible.  It's one of those reads that really puts into perspective how insignificant yet significant we are! (if that makes any sense)

📹 No video this week:
I'm switching to a fortnightly video schedule. I'm feeling a bit burnt out trying to manage work, relationships and the YouTube channel.  I also feel that I need to be putting out bigger and more ambitious content rather than just sitting in front of the camera in the studio/lounge.
Every week my fear and dread is "have I got a video for Friday?" and I feel that this tendency is watering down my creative efforts.

That being said, next week's release is another shift video, starting at Heathrow airport! I'm excited to share it with you all.

Here's a fare chart from one of the terminals for those that are interested.
