Time waits for no man: Forty things to do before you’re forty

A couple of weeks ago I read an article in the paper called ‘Thirty things to do before you're thirty’ which got me thinking. The article itself wasn’t that great as it was populated by mainstream expectations such as buy a house, settle down, earn x amount of money...

Goals round-up for September (better late than never!)

This post is a tad late. Really I should have published it last weekend but instead I was recovering from the effects of doing a skydive.  I think after all that adrenalin inducing activity, I needed to just chill out and that is exactly what I did. So, how did I get...

There is no such thing as failure, only feedback

On Friday 30th September at around 10.30am, I got into a small plane, which took to the sky and on reaching 13,000 feet, I threw myself out of the door. What happened next caused me to temporarily re-evaluate my whole approach to facing fears and living without...

What doesn’t bend breaks

For years I proudly described myself as a 'black and white' person and it wasn’t uncommon for me to utter the words “I don’t do gray”. I saw this as a sign of having a strong sense of what is right and what is wrong as well as a desire and commitment to the specifics...

There is always another way

I’m currently just over half way through a week-long NLP Practitioner course and I am struggling to remember a time when I’ve ever learnt as much in such a short space of time. NLP is an acronym for Neuro-linguistic Programming and rather than try to define for you...

What is personal development?

My passion for personal development has definitely been a talking point at times. It's something that I've noticed people are quite intrigued by and seek to understand better. Some people get it completely because they share the same passion, while others question it...

Goals round-up for August 2011

In terms of goal achievement, this month probably goes down as my worst yet as I achieved only one out of my six goals in total. I feel okay about this. When I originally set my goals back at the end of July, I failed to take into account that for two weeks in August...

The importance of being still

Ten tips to help you become a better speaker

What turns people into looters?

The scenes of rioting and looting that have unfolded in the UK this week have been so shocking that they barely seem real to me. If I’m honest I have felt quite stunned by it and have taken some time to fully form my opinion on the situation. I started to write a post...

What do you trust yourself enough to do?

The first step in my bid for freedom

There is no such thing as weakness

Yesterday I spent just under eight hours undergoing corporate training on how to manage remote teams effectively. This might sound tedious to most but what the training actually boiled down to in my opinion was one big personality test, which actually proved to be...

How to identify the questions that need asking

Why is it that some questions seem to sting and make you feel a flash of anger on hearing them? I used to think it was because they were questions that should not be asked and that the person asking them was somehow at fault. I now realise that when questions provoke...

Burn out and goals round-up for June 2011

This week I burnt out, hit the wall, ran out of steam, had nothing, zero, zilch to give. My plan had been to post this on Sunday 3rd with a video but I chose to give myself a break instead. I say 'chose to' but there wasn’t really a decision to be made, the break was...

Increase your daily happiness with this simple exercise

A couple of years ago, for a variety of reasons that I won’t go into here, I came to the conclusion that I had a problem with anger. I realised that anger was an emotion that I was feeling on a regular, if not daily, basis and even more concerning was that until that...

Do you dare to be different?

Lately I’ve been feeling the unexpected benefits of being true to myself and daring to be different, both in my 9-5 job and in my personal life. I use the word unexpected because I had no idea how satisfying and exhilarating it could be to just be me. I suppose for a...

How to identify and silence your biggest critic

Take a moment and ask yourself who your biggest critic is? In the past my answer to that question would have been…me. I would have thought nothing of describing myself to others as my own worst enemy, and I was. Ironically in describing myself like that I was actually...

Why fear is such an important part of my life

In my first post I talked about facing and overcoming my fears and the fact that I have come to believe that what can limit us in life, if we let it, is fear. Over the past few weeks I’ve thought a lot about what it means to overcome my fears and in doing so I looked...

How to beat procrastination with the power of three

If you are anything like me, then you will be what I call a goal setter (funny how it sort of rhymes with go getter). I set myself goals on a regular basis and as such I am also an incessant list maker, because with every goal comes a set of actions to add to my to do...
