Leaving the emotion

July 21, 2022

‘Take the learning, leave the emotion’ goes a much-quoted saying nowadays.

When looking at past events, it is often a wise move to separate lessons from emotions to ensure supposedly negative situations provide benefits of some sort.

Putting the theory into action, however, is not always easy. Our feelings towards certain circumstances could be getting in the way of an analytical review of matters.

From another perspective, sentiments also have value. And before we leave the emotion, taking a look at it might uncover insights, plus offer a chance to tap into the passion around our efforts.

To explore your thoughts about the idea of leaving the emotion as part of a free no-obligation coaching discovery session, please get in contact.

Taking note

July 17, 2022

Taking note of where we are, we can see how life consists of individual moments linked together.

The wholeness of each instance is often only understood when we step back or participate in hindsight. By taking learning through these simple yet effective approaches, life expands to what it is we believe it is in our hearts.

Working the lessons obtained into strategic actions ensures our efforts are directed towards priorities aligned with values.

The problem, in many cases, is that we don’t give ourselves permission to engage in these activities.

Why it is difficult might be related to a fear of reflection. Many people prefer to keep moving regardless of the actual direction they are going.

Certainly, this is an option, and if people are happy with this, that is fine. But are we?

If taking note of where you are right now is important to you, and you’d like to explore this issue as part of a free no-obligation coaching discovery session, do get in contact.

Kindest regards.

Looking the part

July 14, 2022

I know we should not ‘judge a book by its cover’ nor ‘jump to conclusions’. Even so, how do we feel when faced with a specialist who, for whatever reason, does not ‘look the part’?

The other day I was introduced to a gentleman set to provide maintenance work in the building. Although he had no appointment, he was here to introduce himself and inspect the property.

While taking in his words, I observed his socks, sandals, shorts and t-shirt. In fairness, excluding the socks and sandals, I was dressed the same as I had been writing blog posts in my home/office when called to the outside door to meet him.

Had he arrived in immaculately clean coveralls with the name of his company emblazoned on his chest or back, would the impact have been different to what it was in my mind?

How events play out, only time will tell. The first impact was what it was. Ideally, all will proceed smoothly, and the notion of looking the part remains merely that; a notion.

We shall see.

A dash of colour

July 10, 2022

Adding a dash of colour to the day provides a welcome break from a day working with black and white words, whether on paper or the computer screen.

That said, at any moment, we have the option to look up and/or walk away to connect with our surroundings.

Many folk nowadays operate from locations more exotic than traditional office settings. For these people, a dash of colour is the blue sky, golden sands or whatever hues nature gifts them.

Yet no matter where we are, as mindfulness teaches us, we are right here right now, and the choice to connect with this moment is one we always have.

And this itself would be a dash of colour, no?

Small changes

July 3, 2022

Do you ever walk into a shop, office or restaurant and immediately begin to mentally list items you’d tidy, change or remove if you were in charge?

This activity of observing is perhaps not meant as a judgement on others, instead may embrace a desire for each one of us to live our potential.

So often, small changes really could produce impactful results. However, for whatever reason, possibly indifference or even a belief their ideas don’t matter, staff appear to accept wilting plants on the reception desk, messy waiting areas or, in some instances, disgusting restrooms.

And it seems companies still fail to understand these things affect how customers, clients and the general public perceive them.

On a personal level, we can turn our observations onto ourselves to assess how well we communicate our values to our stakeholders as we progress through the day. Each choice, action, word uttered or not uttered speaks for us.

So, taking a few minutes right now, what messages are we currently transmitting? Are they those we want them to be, or would a few tweaks serve us better?
