As for the internet there seems to be an almost unlimited amount of information, knowledge and wisdom available at our fingertips and on every topic imaginable. Why is all this information available?

Resilience and the Valentine most people forget I’m willing to bet every year on Valentine’s day there’s one person in your life you’ll ignore and not show love and appreciation for. If I’m wrong I owe you an apology. You see, this person is key to you building your resilience.   In my opinion, you should show love for, and to, this person even more than anyone else in your life and not just on Valentine’s day but, EVERY DAY.   You may have noticed there’s one thing many of us do on a more than regular basis and even find difficult to stop.   If something doesn’t work out th ..read more

Success mindset tools – An insight and a free gift THE INSIGHT Does using success mindset tools guarantee you success? Thank you for asking, in a word… no! So is it all rubbish? Absolutely NOT!!

Frozen wisdom to start the New Year Happy New Year, I trust you’ve returned from the festive break feeling refreshed, energised and ready to take on the opportunities 2024 will bring :) Late last year I did a very important exercise inspired by the film ‘Frozen’. It certainly helped me feel better and more focussed for what’s to come in 2024. I’m sure it’ll help you too. It’s something we all know about but don’t do often enough. By the way, some films inspire me in different ways. I recently watched Padding 2 (I loved it) and at the end of it I had a craving for marmalade sandwiches… I do ..read more

Five easy ways to relax and boost productivity when busy We all lead busy working lives and often forget or choose not to take a break. For many their lives are ruled by their work. I know work’s important as it allows us to pay our way in the world and, especially if we enjoy what we do, makes us feel we’re making a contribution and valued. It’s just that life is about… balance. Too much of one thing is not good. I love ice cream, but would hate to eat a ton of it all in one go. I should know, I’ve tried :) In a busy working day some people often work their our lunch and coffee breaks, th ..read more

Resilience – How to get through tough AND good times

Resilience – How to get through tough AND good times It’s useful to have developed a range of tools and techniques we can use when the going gets tough. The trick is to turn these tools and coping strategies into habits by doing them ALL the time, even when we’re going through good times. They then become automatic when we really need to use them. Think about this, when does an athlete train for a race? Before the race or during the race? Before the race, obviously. Because they know when they’re under pressure and the time comes when they need to perform, they’re ready, they kno ..read more

Five ways to beat procrastination I can’t believe I’m about to write this but it’s true and actually happened.

Usually something totally non productive like… putting some air in a cupboard? Not just me then :) We procrastinate for many reasons.
