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 [...]

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 [...]

I'm about to start working on a project to help women in senior positions in corporate organisations step up their public speaking and visibility to create more impact and lead change. This both excites and terrifies me. It feels like work I was born to do, but it's giving me the collywobbles and making me ask: [...]

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 [...]

Are you about ready for a December slow down? We're in the final month of the year, the holidays make it a short month, 3 weeks of coasting seem like a good idea, right? Wrong! (Well, we're all different, so if you know a December slow down works for you, then go for it. I'm not [...]

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 these your goals…

How many of us get to a certain age, look around and think, “This is not what I had planned.”  Whatever our age, when we evaluate where we are and how we got here, we often find a distinct gap between our fantasy and reality.  Many of us have been on a specific trajectory — a [...]

Your “decision prism”

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 [...]

Striking a "healthy" balance between work and life can mean different things to different people. Some people thrive on being super-busy and love to respond to the increased pressure of a deadline. Research suggests that this can be healthy. However, when pressure is relentless, it can quickly become unhealthy. When thinking about your work-life balance, what [...]

“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 [...]
