I have to stand up and talk to people?

Often in business we find that although it would very beneficial to talk to a group, when that occasion arises, you probably think of one of these two options: “How exciting, I have an opportunity to be heard, I can relay a message, educate an audience and share my expertise.” Or “Oh No, I don’t know what to say, what to wear and my tummy is already going crazy.” That’s how I was the first…

Are You Getting What You Want From Your Business?

Do you remember that day, some time ago when you had an idea, and you kept thinking about it, and it just got bigger and bigger until you had to do something with it and then….you decided to start your business. Recall the energy you felt, the joy in your heart and the fear in your tummy, the total ‘Oh crikey, what am I doing, is this going to work out?’ excitement that kept you…

Rise and Shine?

One of the best nike adverts I keep listening to – so just wanted to share, rise and shine I believe it is very apt at this time of year when we keep getting drawn into all the drama and excitement of Christmas. I know there are some of you still thinking about coming along to Visionworks! on Wednesday, so if you want to be one step ahead for the start of next year, here’s a link to  the information…

Look What’s 90

You know that feeling, I know that feeling; I love that feeling!  You know, when you are in the groove, things just fall into place, you’re alert and on fire, able to power through and it all gets done. The energy and motivation to do anything and everything is there, you tap into it and work just flies off your desk. In the words of the brilliant Freddie Mercury and Queen,  “Don’t stop me now,…

Journaling Therapy

  Following on from last week’s miview sharing Dame Renee Fritchie’s great journaling questions, (read it again here) I am keen to stay on the theme of ‘How Can I Motivate Myself?’ before moving on to the motivation of others   To be self motivated, you first must know what motivates you and the best tool I can recommend for this is regular writing and the best place for this is in a journal.  …

How can I motivate myself?

“If you want the truth, you must write about yourself I am the only truth I know” J Rhys   Dame Renee Fritchie called the missing part of career development ‘biography writing’ and outlined the importance of getting to know, understand and love yourself. The sad truth is that many of us power through life without taking the time to put pen to paper and enjoy this experience.   So I’ll begin by saying, well…

The art of Delegation – How am I supposed to do that?

Last time we looked at why we delegate (click here for a reminder)  and I promised you we would follow up with how to effectively delegate; so you start getting the most out of yourself and your people as fast as possible. The first challenge surrounds what you get someone else to do! It seems simple enough however when faced with many different options, it is easy to fall at this first step and decide against the…

Business is not for you?

I have spoken to many people who ask themselves this question… ” Do I still want to be in business?” I did some personal reflection on that same question; I started up some years ago with a love for what I do and a passion to deliver a service that outwits, outreaches and outdoes everyone in my profession. Back when I started, I believed my zest for my business would shine through every time. I was…

As If…….

Like many of you, I am sure; I was saddened this week to hear about the passing of the great Nelson Mandela and as the same time grateful to have been alive with a man that made history in such a profound way. He lived with a clear sense of purpose and a focus that enabled him to really make a difference. As I was listening to a meditation recording yesterday, I was reminded of…

If you want to get ahead……

As the Christmas preparations are well underway, with trees up, lights on and wrapping paper at all the check outs, we recognise that the success of this big day (yes, all this for one day) depends on the action taken prior to the event itself. And before the action comes the plan and before the plan comes the thinking and the setting of the intention. Whether its pulling off a large family get together, having…
