Updated March 2023; Toronto, ON, Canada.

Current priority

  • I was laid off the week before Christmas so I’m looking for a new agile coaching position in Toronto. My résumé page and LinkedIn profile are up to date (but probably could look better). The job hunt is taking a while but I have a few irons in the fire.

Kaizen (improvement step)

  • Catching up with people that I’ve not spoken/written to in ages.
  • Physical health: badminton season starts shortly Failed to return to badminton but I have been using my new treadmill.

Eternally needing attention

  • Toronto Photo Walks is back up to speed.
  • Keeping the badminton club’s website & mailing list up to date, although we have elections for the Exec roles soon so I may be handing this over to someone else.

Top (few things) of my backlog

  • Finding a doctor in Toronto (seems like an impossibility!) Minor miracle: I now have a GP!
  • Renewing my Permanent Resident card. (I looked at the Canadian Citizenship route but the processing time is currently two years!)
  • It’s almost tax time again; I should probably get started on that while I’m not working.
  • Get back into posting about agile and/or coaching on my work-related blog. (I’ve posted three times so far this year)
  • Getting prepared (fit & practised) in the hope of shooting the Honda Indy Toronto again in July 2023.

Commit or drop?

  • Still listening to a lot of podcasts, occasionally adding new shows and removing others so I ought to post an updated list sometime.
  • I haven’t posted updates to Paul Henman Photography or Toronto Tuesday in ages but I’m finally getting out and shooting again.
  • I’m still frustrated with Formula One and I have pretty low expectations for the new season (but still expect to be disappointed).


  • The YouTube rabbit hole… although it occasionally results in interesting discoveries.

Deleted from my backlog

  • Trying to manage all sorts of tech at home (e.g. multiple flavours of NAS box) – I’ve simplified my setup and now need to find new homes for some older kit.
