As a coach, one of the first things I do when a new client joins my coaching programme is to help them establish a structured day. This is a critical step towards achieving their coaching programme goals. Find out more about my coaching programmes here → In many ways, having some structure in your day is similar to the pre-flight checks a pilot would undertake before a flight or a surgeon following a surgical checklist before a surgical procedure. No pilot or surgeon would ever consider skipping these steps before doing their work. Yet many stressed-out and overwhelmed people turn up at work ..read more

Writing this book has confirmed a few productivity lessons that border on laws and can help you with bigger, long-term projects. Anything you want to do will require more time than you plan for.

Imagine starting the day like Charles Darwin, with a leisurely walk in the woods. Or take a cue from Leonardo Da Vinci, who often spent days exploring the countryside outside Florence. And what about Ian Fleming, who would kick off his mornings with a refreshing swim in the sea when he was in Jamaica every January and February? These are all examples of slow living in action. A cursory look at the daily routine of any productive person of years past would quickly find a person who indulged in gentle walks in nature, hobbies such as painting or gardening, and socialising with friends and famil ..read more

Growing up in the UK in the 1980s, there was a government road safety campaign with the slogan “Speed kills.” This campaign aimed to prevent drivers from speeding. The campaign was hard-hitting, which probably was why it has stuck with me. Although TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson’s contrary view: “Speed has never killed anyone.

For me, that is helping a student retrieve their password or doing something my wife asked me to do NO ..read more

Last December, my wife decided that her goal for 2024 was to embark on a postgraduate degree in physical therapy. She looked at the curriculum and announced it would only be twelve hours of lectures each week, and she could easily find that time. Two months into the course, she’s had to cut back on her social time. She’s struggling to squeeze in her weekly dance classes, and poor Louis (our little Yorkshire Terrier) rarely gets to walk with her. What happened? My wife forgot about the “admin cost” involved in any new endeavour. In particular, she forgot she would need to study for tests and e ..read more
