With distractibility at an all time high, thanks to the availability of the internet and mobile devices, our ability to engage in what we are doing is becoming increasingly challenging.
US businesses alone are potentially losing 2 hours or more per day, on average, per worker, in lost productivity due to distraction. Added up across all the workers in the country and that is som...Read Full Post »

In today's technological world it is hard to switch off from distraction. Our phones and tablets keep us connected constantly in our waking hours. When we consider how available we are now, it is difficult to know when to truly switch off.
Our inability to switch off is leaving us constantly distracted, being less able to pay attention, or find it harder to focus on the task at hand. So...Read Full Post »

Anytime we sense fear in our lives we could easily read this as a signal for change. Particularly if it is recurring. Some of you may know FEAR as standing for False Expectations Appearing Real. The dictionary definition is an 'unpleasant emotion that is caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat'.
In today's world, fear can be experienced on a daily basis, perhap...Read Full Post »

As I get nearer to approaching my 50th year the insights I have on my life to this point seem to be coming thick and fast. Maybe it is some of the people I have been mixing with, maybe the burning inside me that if I don't get some of this stuff done then it's going to be too late. Maybe it's not having the physical demands of a young family and learning now about what I really want to teach my kids.
In conversa...Read Full Post »

I have begun to ponder the meaning of what it is to be human. A friend of mine recently quoted we are human beings, not human doings, which got me thinking ...
Generally speaking, the western world has equated life success as being a list of accomplishments and material acquisitions. Our education, possessions and things we have done are worth more than who we are in any given moment. We spend our days c...Read Full Post »

Resilience will be one of the major success factors in life as we move deeper into this century. Given how far technology has come in the last 10 years, it is almost hard to fathom what the next 10 years will deliver. Our children are being educated for jobs we don't even know exist yet and the foundations of what they may need to know have not yet been embedded into the standards of traditional school education. This lack of certainty will require development of good coping skills and the ab...Read Full Post »

We take our bodies for granted and seldom slow down enough to listen to what our body is telling us or telling others. The time pressures and busyness of our western minds rob us from the ability to truly tune into ourselves.
The numbers indicate that 55% of what we say is body language, 38% is the tone we use and 7% the actual words we say. This brings another meaning to actions speak loud...Read Full Post »

One of my favorite questions was 'What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?'
Our fear of failure can hold us back and cause us to do nothing at all. By allowing fear to hold us back, we are likely to miss some of life's greatest opportunities. We attach FEAR (False Expectations Appearing Real) and shame to failure. This fear and shame can stem back from our childhood years where we may have been undermined or humiliated by our parents or teachers.
