What major change are you pondering?

January 13, 2019

What major change are you pondering and, equally pertinent, what are you prepared to do to ensure you actually implement it? With last year now a memory and focus shifted to dreams and aspirations for this new year, the opening questions are worth addressing, no?

Planning and tweaking, then planning and tweaking further to prepare for the eventual endeavour, rarely leads to a positive result. At some point, we have to dive in and get started.

Likewise, tiny steps could be part of the overall strategy and may create an immediate impact. Yet spreading energy and effort across a multitude of actions oftentimes limits resources for the one big change we know, in our heart, we should be undertaking.

So, what major change are you pondering? If you’d like to explore this issue as part of a coaching conversation, please get in touch.

In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘What major change are you pondering?’ post.

Kindest regards.

Living out our values

January 10, 2019

When it comes to it, we are either living out our values or we are not. There is no middle ground for this issue.

Living out our values means being authentic to our ideals and putting action into our words.

Not living out our values, on the contrary, implies we are merely ‘going through the motions’ without giving our all to the question before us.

Priorities are made evident by the attention we give them and, more importantly, the time we set aside for bringing them into being. And once we are actually living out our values, creating the life we had hoped for, we are being true to ourselves and to those with whom we engage.

Additional steps may well be necessary to ensure we are constantly living out our values in the likely event of us having to face challenges and setbacks, but that is material for a follow-up post.

For now, thanks for taking the time to connect here and read this ‘Living out our values’ post.

When to let go of holding on

January 6, 2019

The initial days of the new year are still in our minds yet possibly the idea of when to let go of holding on to unhealthy habits and the like is already fading as we get caught up in our old routine.

We are in essence the sum of our habits, thoughts, dreams and actions and provided these items are creating our desired life all is good. But whatever the situation, being conscious of when to let go of holding on keeps us in good stead, today and surely for the rest of the year.

We instinctively know what areas of life we need to review with regard to our habits and actions. Those we are unhappy with, or at least not convinced are still in our best interest, will be prime candidates to be let go of.

The key, however, might reside in the word ‘when’ of the enquiry ‘when to let go of holding on’. Timing plays an important role in managing our efforts to take full advantage of habits, plus giving us input about the best moment to let go of it.

The Japanese saying “Hold tight, release immediately” comes to mind to best sum up the thinking.

For now, thanks for being here and for reading this ‘When to let go of holding on’ post today.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Being ourselves here, there and everywhere

January 3, 2019

So, the new year is in progress, bringing another chance for us to go about being ourselves here, there and everywhere.

With social media an integral element of life for many of us nowadays, the idea that we are anything less than ourselves is perhaps strange. Still, ensuring we provide a consistency of message – a way of being ourselves here, there and everywhere – is a personal task for each of us.

Values are transmitted through actions and yet words also play their part. Likewise, being authentic with our online followers, besides those we interact with beyond the digital world, is crucial to us being ourselves here, there and everywhere.

The ease of putting the notion of being ourselves here, there and everywhere into practice is linked to our perception of society. If lies and falsehoods make up our world, it is difficult to keep ‘the dirt from our shoes’. Yet when honesty is the name of the game, we too can let our true self shine.

To explore how coaching could help you as you attempt to live your potential, please get in touch so we can talk.

For now, thanks for connecting and for reading this ‘Being ourselves here, there and everywhere’ post.

Appreciating silence associated with today

December 27, 2018

Silent street

Attempting to find a few minutes in order to engage in appreciating silence associated with today may not be easy, but it will surely be beneficial. These few days in between festivities are often viewed as crucial moments by those obliged or requested to work.

The relative inactivity of this time of the year gives us the opportunity to catch up, as it were, with all those tasks and chores usually left for now. We might be working but in a more relaxed manner than once the phones start ringing again. Appreciating silence associated with today is a gift worth embracing.

Appreciating silence associated with today is additionally an approach to give ourselves time to just be with where we are. This is, of course, the opposite of trying to be everywhere for everyone at the same time.

So, rather than fill this page with many more words, I will let you enjoy a spot of appreciating silence associated with today.

Kindest regards.

Brian.
