When Was The Last Time You Watched Yourself?

After reading a great quote a few weeks ago, I keep getting drawn back to it. “The Way You Do One Thing Is The Way You Do Everything” I thought about it when; • I returned to a miview I had started • I was sorting out a double booking in my diary • I realised the mess I had left in my car As I revisited these things to sort them out, I thought this is…

Relationships Matter

We talk about the root of all good relationship being the result of many different things, including compassion, honesty and trust, however today I want to look at three different types of relationships we all deal with and my experience of how they have impacted my life in the last week. Events Where people gather, the focus tends to revolve round the purpose of the event itself and our behaviours reflect that. Let me give…

When Did You Last Stop for Breath?

Recently I parked my car to take a scheduled phonecall, something very familiar to me. As we checked in, discussed challenges and options I became very aware of the world round me. What was unfamiliar was where I had parked the car, not in a car park or at the side of the road but somewhere different. I just realised I was in the beauty of the country. The sun was shining, the fields were…

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…

If only I could get started, think what I could do!

When I think about motivation for businesses, I think of it as a title under ‘Management Development’ and how to get the best from your staff. But as I started writing this piece, I realised we need to consider our personal motivation first and consider why it is important to get the most out of ourselves, before working on others! I’d like you to imagine yourself 5 years in the future. Picture yourself sitting on…

7 Easy Ways to Cope With Christmas

After many different conversations with friends recently, I have become so aware that Christmas means so many different things to different people. Some are so excited about exchanging gifts and spending time with friends and family, others are very concerned about the amount of money they are spending and many have sad memories about past events and lost loved ones around this time. I thought it would be fun to share some tips that can…

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…

It’s been far too long

Sometimes, when you get out of the way of doing things, when life takes over and leaves you hung out to dry, it’s difficult to find your momentum again. For some reason, I have many and I’m not getting into my ‘excuses’ here and now, I haven’t written a miview for some while and I’ve found it really difficult to get going again. I wrote a couple of first drafts, and binned them. I then…

Me First?

“Me and Marion are going to the park” I would announce excitedly. “Me’s last” would come the reply, as Mum attempted to correct my grammar “It’s Marion and I that are going to the park” Well isn’t this so true of many of us in business, we put our clients, our suppliers and others before ourselves and I have even heard of business owners making sure their staff get paid before they do! Well I…

If Only…….

Now and again I get a question that stops me in my tracks and this week I put one together after listening to a snippet by the author, Mark Rhodes, “What would the person ‘you could have been’ be doing right now?”  I thought about it. Initially I had a small shift, but as I thought back over the years and looked at the choices I had made and the opportunities I didn’t take I…
