DELTA Module 2: The Calm before the storm

Well. After a few years break due to…different reasons. I’m finally getting back to completing my DELTA. You might have thought that I had completed my DELTA at some point as it’s pretty unusual to drag it out for so long. However, I’m not your typical person and so I’ve gone my own route. Why […]

Starting the DELTA Module 3

The time has come for me to start Module three of the Delta. After passing Module one last year (few!) I didn’t jump into taking the next part straight away but took some time off from the Delta. That’s one of the really nice things about doing it modally and at a distance, you can […]

My DELTA Evernote system

I’ve mentioned that I’m using Evernote for my DELTA but I thought I’d gone into a bit more detail as to how I’m arranging my system and how it is set up. If you don’t know what Evernote is then check out some of my older posts about it. 3 notebooks The main function I’ve […]
