Throwing away the script

I used to think I had a ‘time management’ problem.  I didn’t. I had an INTEGRITY problem. Before I tell you more about my problem, let’s talk about integrity for a minute. It’s a fairly loaded word and appears to be widely misunderstood. Integrity isn’t right vs wrong.  It’s not moral superiority. You aren’t necessarily ‘more in integrity’ just because you eat organic, …

Crossing the River of Misery

In films, when the heroine undergoes a metamorphosis, it looks SPECTACULAR! She sees it, she GOES for it, everyone is rooting for her, she GETS just exactly what she’s looking for and they all live happily ever after. In the real world, change doesn’t look like that. Here’s why: In order to achieve results in your life …

A myth we *still* believe 🙄

When I hear someone celebrated as ‘extremely dedicated and hard-working’ because ‘his car is the first in the car-park every morning and the last to leave most evenings’, as demonstration of his dedication and work ethic, I cringe.   Not because I question whether or not the person being celebrated is dedicated or hard working …

Taking care of your most valuable asset

What’s the most valuable thing you own? You house, your car? Maybe the most valuable thing to you is your family, your husband, your kids? Want to know what the most valuable thing that I own is? It’s my BRAIN If you’d asked me 5 years ago what the most valuable thing I owned was, I …

No bad Mums

Another mother recently told me that it was unthinkable that a mother of two young children would travel to Texas for life coach training, or training of any sort, as I had last Summer. I hadn’t asked her what she thought either before going or since coming back. She believed that I needed to hear …

Just like me

It’s Easter week and that means schools are out, routine is about to go to pot, sugar levels are high and rising; and you might have travel arrangements made to spend the break with family or to make use of the school holidays. Times like this tend to require more of us in terms of empathy, judgement …

What stops you from speaking your truth

How often have not articulated what you really thought in a situation because of some flavour of fear of being misunderstood. It sounded like this in your head: ‘I didn’t want them to think…’ ‘I didn’t want anyone to feel…’ ‘I didn’t want to seem…’ You had something to say but your concern for how …

People pleaser or manipulator?

For most of my life, I thought of myself as a people pleaser. I spent many years perfecting my people pleasing skills – saying yes at work because I thought I should, accepting and extending social invitations that my heart wasn’t really in and holding back from speaking my truth in many situations where I thought …

Do this and rip up your to-do list

Have you planned out your day? A client asked me this week if by ‘daily planning’, I meant having a to-do list. I don’t. I never ever have a to-do list and I’m going to tell you why. The following is what I do in my daily planning. I plan out this way for a …
