#573 – I Always Want It To Be Perfect

Have you ever said this yourself? I often hear this from my clients. It often comes with a pang of guilt; a mixture of pride having high standards and being annoyed with themselves because they know it takes them more time. I’ve seen it when people talk about writing...

#572 – Farewell Old Friend

#567 – Stop Trying To Do Everything

“Stop trying to do everything” I was thinking about Tuesday night. I had my Kung Fu lined up and a mastermind call. I sat there working out the logistics of getting to my class and wondering whether I should leave early or just dial into my call in the car on the way...

I often forget how important acknowledgment and celebration are. I was reminded of this when I joined the last meeting of my Toastmasters year (1). Krisztina, the president of my club International Lunchtime Toastmasters (2) gave an outgoing speech and acknowledged...

#566 – Gold | The Moment Of Awareness

As I sat down to write my blogs for the week, I noticed myself reaching for my iPhone. It was a split second but I caught myself. My hand literally stopped midair. That was the moment I knew I was putting something off.  99% of the other times, I would have just...
