>Living up to the title

>An occupational psychologist on life? Ha! That’s pretentious enough to be believable. But let’s back track a bit. I am an occ psych for a reason. I believe in the applicability of psychology to be able to help businesses/organisations/companies achieve more by harnessing the potential of their people. Okay so that’s just marketing speak and bullshit. But it’s true.

Anyway beyond that, I do have a lot of living up to the title to do. Occ psych is an interesting incestuous world much like the digital marketing industry I’m currently working in. All the regular players know each other, and speak highly of each other, and recommend each other. It’s a wonder any of the consultancies that exist have any true unique selling points. But that’s a different blog for a later date. Yet I want to contribute to this world. I want to make a difference to what it means to be an occ psych. I truly believe that I can bring to the fore an occ psych mentality coupled with actual work experience resulting in truly insightful learnings.

I’ll talk about a lot. My wife Mrs P. My twin boys aged 2 and 10 months old – A & K. My baby yet to be. My friends Jim, Joe and Jerry. My work. My newfound commute to work on the cycle. Religion – Sikhi in particular. And all things technology. Other things may crop into that mix of topics. But why not? It’s all a learning experience.

So an occ pysch on life. I hope to present to you an array of things both interesting and incredibly dull. Welcome to my world. May it be as interesting as yours.
