Business not busyness

July 24, 2022

Reflecting on the validity of how we spend our days is an individual exercise that may take a few minutes but could save us many hours of lost productivity. Whether we do it or not might depend on our view of business, not busyness.

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.

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?

Releasing the brake to live life to the full

September 17, 2020

Sometimes releasing the brake to live life to the full might involve a simple action. It could be:

a) Saying ‘Yes’ to our objectives, even if it means upsetting folk who are used to us running around for them;

b) Saying ‘No’ to an endless flow of requests we know in our heart has nothing to do with our goals;

c) Focusing on the benefits of a life lived to the full achieved by us ‘giving our all’;

d) Taking to heart the idea that even if we fail in our efforts, we can learn something and therefore ‘move forward’ to our heartfelt destination;

e) Appreciating that action is the starting key to accomplishing anything.

Releasing the brake to live life to the full could include additional actions. To share your thoughts on the issue and offer your input, leave a comment below.

Embracing our potential to live fully

January 2, 2020

No matter what is occurring around us, and regardless of plans and good intentions, we all have it in us to engage in embracing our potential to live fully.

Embracing our potential to live fully requires no extra input from us, besides appreciation of all we have and a commitment to use it in every endeavour. With these two elements in place, the process becomes almost automatic.

And as we get into the habit of embracing our potential to live fully, we might find life opens up in ways previously never imagined. To share your thoughts on the ideas mentioned here, leave a comment below.
