The most important hour of the week

Every Sunday, I take around an hour to plan out my week. I make as many decisions as possible about the week ahead with the benefit of perspective and my best interests in mind. Then I write it all on my calendar. Some people think this is crazy – they tell me the last thing they want …

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, …

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 …
