Good, Better, Best.

Good, Better, Best.

I want to take you on an out of body experience. Pour yourself a wine, grab a beer, or make yourself a cuppa, and take a seat. Melt into your chair and imagine there’s a drone lifting off beside you. As it starts gliding higher into the sky, your point of view...
What Fruit Will You Bear?

What Fruit Will You Bear?

Recently, I attended a weekend retreat as a way of recharging my batteries, reconfirming my purpose and finetuning my direction. It was well worth the experience – shaking off a few lockdown induced cobwebs. At these things,  facilitators push you outside your...
LIFE TURNS TO 💩–THEN WHAT?

LIFE TURNS TO 💩–THEN WHAT?

For me, (and am sure for many others), 2021 was tough. It started with the hope that we can get over the effects of 2020 but those seemed to extend through 2021 too. It also seems so many people were just angry – at all types of things. There are many small voices...
Adulting is hard

Adulting is hard

SO, there I was with a mate watching the antics of his 13-month-old daughter. She sat in a little chair watching the Wiggles, wrapped in her blanket to keep her warm, while her devoted mother lovingly fed her slices of banana. I thought to myself – well, there’s an...
Two Characteristics of Successful People

Two Characteristics of Successful People

What makes a person stand out from other people? What makes a person emotionally “stronger” than others? I’ve recently been involved in several projects around leadership development, executive coaching, relationship building and succession planning and while they are...
The Beauty of FOMO

The Beauty of FOMO

What is stopping them from being decisive on something they know they have, and surely must want, to make? It’s fear. Fear of failure, embarrassment, not being good enough, the imposter syndrome – it goes on. The emotion of fear is perceived to be a negative...
Year of the Relationship Reset?

Year of the Relationship Reset?

“2020, really blindsided me…” “I guess 2020 made me think…” I read a report recently about increased demand for personal counselling and sadly, an increase in the number of divorces filed. It made me think about my workload this year and in late...
What’s your word of the year?

What’s your word of the year?

So, what word will shape and drive your behaviour in 2021? I am not a big believer in creating New Year’s resolutions as I find they can become a source of stress. I observe folks focusing efforts on making reality fit the resolution as opposed to the resolution...
Resilience is Dead

Resilience is Dead

OK I’ve had enough. I’m calling it. Resilience is finished! Who is sick of hearing the word resilience? Who is tired of hearing that it’s resilience that underpins everything from electoral systems, to financial markets to personal strategies and relationships?Well, I...
Sorry is a powerful word

Sorry is a powerful word

Who has ever done the wrong thing? If you denied any accountability, I am here to tell you otherwise because that tells me that you haven’t been honest with yourself. All of us, sometime in our life will either deliberately or inadvertently do the wrong thing to...
Mind the Gap (Between Your Realities)

Mind the Gap (Between Your Realities)

WHAT world do you live in? What shapes and drives your behaviours? How do you react in that world? Your view of reality will shape your world. It shapes your thoughts, your words, your behaviours, your interactions, reactions and ultimately your destiny. For every...
Where to from here?

Where to from here?

WELL, I must admit that I was wrong. I was wrong about the severity and tenure of the coronavirus; I was wrong about the likelihood of an economic shutdown, and I was wrong when I felt that the “we are all in this together” would continue. I guess being told...
