The festive season is a great time to switch off, wind down, and enjoy the company of friends, family and self. Unlike other times in the year when we might take some much-needed time out, there's a cultural expectation to not be working. Usually (not always), this leads to fewer intrusions from the outside world in [...]

Just get over yourself!

A client of mine is also a friend. We saw each other at the weekend and apparently my comments about his work issue were slightly less than subtle. Allegedly I'd told him to get over himself. I can believe this. I'd been to lunch... I'd drunk some wine... you get the picture. It got me thinking [...]

Prioritising personal performance

We all know what helps us perform at our best. If we have a personal project we want to work on, or a new paradigm we want to implement at work, we have to exercise self-discipline. But when life gets busy, it's easy to let things slip. There are very often extenuating circumstances that mean it's [...]

I want it. No I don’t.

Are there some goals in your life that seem possible in principal, but elude you in reality? Do you sometimes delay getting started or distract yourself with busy-ness instead of applying yourself? Do you ever sabotage yourself just as you're about to reach a goal? This "I want it. No I don't," inner conflict is very [...]

How to be happy? Start purring as soon as you open your eyes We recently adopted two rescue cats. (Non-cat people, bear with me.) Brodie was pretty cool and very aloof, but Logan was scared and spent the first two weeks cowering under the bed. In the last 8 months, they've both come out of their [...]

Work less and move more

Do you find as the days get longer and lighter you develop a bit of a spring in your step? Do you yearn to 'bunk off' the office and head outside? Research suggests you should go for it. Yes! The research boffins say we should work less and move more... As well as longer daylight hours [...]

Have a little faith

Sometimes knowing where we're going, how we're going to get there and what we have to do next still isn't enough to get us moving and taking action. If you’re properly prepared, you’ve planned your next step, and you have as much support in place as you need, it’s time to have a little faith and [...]

The time for new beginnings

Happy New Year! I know it's May... but doesn't it feel like the time for new beginnings? I've written before about how much I dislike New Year's resolutions. I know others who love them, so if they work for you, then great—you can stop reading, because you're already in your 5th month of achievement! For me, the [...]

Are you largely clear about what you want to achieve, but unsure about next steps? Do you ever get to the end of another month feeling like you haven’t made much progress? Being clear on what we want is the first step to achieving it.  Having a clear ‘desired future’ in mind is critical to our [...]

“I know it sounds a bit dramatic, but I'm really dreading Christmas.  My family still treat me like I'm a kid.  Worse, I then start acting like one.” Reverting to old behaviours is something most of us can identify with. As adults, we might have ceased behaving in a certain way because we've grown up.  Trouble [...]
