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…

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…

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…

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…

Is It Worth The Wait?

Have you ever been tempted by chocolate while on a diet or a treat when you are saving up for something bigger? Our minds are constantly making decisions and temptation is often in our way. Our life success is based upon these hundreds of tiny everyday decisions, as they take us closer or further away from our goals. We can all get distracted, tired and lazy or just plain fed up and make a choice that doesn’t…

Is Now Your Time?

With 2014 speeding towards us, those of us in business have two options:  Coast in and wait until the New Year to get a New Start., OR Take stock and get moving so that you are all set and making things happen even before January 1st If you want option 2, then you know that there’s still time to refocus and align you and your business in 2013 to position you to achieve your goals. Think…

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…

Finding Crumble

We recently visited my niece, Lindsay who was hosting a family night of board games. We all know her four year old son, Arran, needs to be asleep before the board games begin so while Lindsay was upstairs seeing to that, the rest of us were chilling and chatting. Suddenly, over the banister came the quiet words, “We’ve lost Crumble!” Although her words were calm, not to alert Arran, Lindsay knew the real message would…
