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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Are you uncomfortable expressing emotions? Do you find it challenging when other people express theirs? Do you believe certain emotions shouldn't be expressed in public? I was working with a group of public speakers last week and the topic of expressing emotions came up. We broadly fell into two camps: The first group argued that expressing [...]

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 [...]
