You are the new CEO of Boeing, aren't you? Listen, you can't fix the 737 Max with a spreadsheet. Just ask the previous guy.

Fill in as applicable produce at least fifty of them to prove what you believe but don't forget to carry a clip board everywhere so everyone will think you're busy.

It's from my new book called the Myths of Modern Business Practice or How to Keep the Golden Hello and Hide the Gloden Handshake.

I'm waiting for the post Brexit off-shore windfall for the final chapter on Salting Away the Goodies.

Dear Diary today is officially my last day of work even though I'm not working today, so new chapter, onwards and upwards.

Good luck in Airstrip One Tony.

Regards Russ

For the last 20-25 years, every time I've needed a new office type chair, I've just gone down to the local Staples, bounced around on a few demo ones they had then bought the most comfy one. Just went down now as my home office chair is getting a bit ropey and I've got to work at home a lot more from now. It's no longer Staples, it's rebranded, and it's closed.

I don't really want to buy it from Amazon or online, I like getting one I'm comfortable in.

Thank you Ariel, but I've known for years that I should do my damnest to stay away from them. I even married a wife who can't stand children...

Dear Diary,

Today is the first day of my "Hoiday" ( Retirement? Time will tell.) 

That woman that lives in the other room watching soaps has been mooching about doing woman things. Be interesting to see what develops in the coming weeks.

Try introducing yourself and ask if she's got the kettle on.

Day 1 of working from home in quite a while. Frustrating to say the least, just need to get into a routine, as it’s likely for me to be quite a while

Breaks. Schedule them in. Get up, go do something for 5-10 minutes an hour that's not work. It's the way to get through a lot and keep sane.

I leave my reading glasses on my desk when I do so I'm not tempted to just read my phone instead.

Videoconferencing is the way to keep socialised, and build in gossip time on them rather than hard start/stop. I'm happy not really seeing people as this is how I've worked heavily for the last two decades but those used to office environments can go stir crazy.

Try before you buy. There must be somewhere like this near you. Mainly new or nearly new stuff at great prices.

Day 3 and getting into it now. Apart from waking up early and starting at 6.30. Told my boss I’d be off at 3.30. Doesn’t stop the rest of the business phoning you up (should have ignored them)

I have a full hour away from desk in middle of day to have lunch and switch off

Work wise as I’m a resource planner / forecaster I’m quite busy. Firstly trying to get my team set up for remote working (laptops all issues now) and also looking at longer term impacts - this is more difficult as absolutely no point of reference, interesting week ahead for me

For a little while I've been trying to work out who the new doctor at my surgery looks like and after seeing him today it just hit me in the face. He looks just like Adam Pearson! 

Ahrgh, you saw a real life, actual Doctor?

Well, the day I've long been dreading has finally arrived. It's always been in the back of my mind that this day would inevitably come, and I thought I had formulated a plan of how I would cope with it. Now it's happened, I realise that no amount of planning can prepare you for the feeling of emptiness and despair that is now sitting in the pit of my stomach.

All I can do is keep going, but I just feel like spending weeks in bed, avoiding social media, TV, radio - all contact, in fact - in case some innocent tiny snippet I read, hear or see brings it all back, and I start spiralling downwards again.

I know that hundreds of thousands - possibly even millions - of people around the world are experiencing the same pain, the same feeling of helplessness that I'm experiencing right now, and I wonder if they're handling it any better than I am.

So, how is everyone else dealing with the news that Genesis have reformed?

I did not see the date on this.

It seems like another age.

I threw my office chair in the back of the car and took it home.
