Living in the moment – intentionally

Writer and philosopher Alan Watts had this to say about our fascination with the past and the future: While that’s true and reality can only be experienced in the present moment, what we choose to do with it can, and does, create the physical reality of the future. It does so with varying degrees of…

Step Up to Genius …

There are 3 steps to living your Joyful Genius, and the first one is to Step Up and find real clarity about what you are brilliant at, and then own up to it. And not in an airy-fairy, just-do-what-you-love-and-the-money-will-come sort of way, but in a pragmatic, sometimes-the-bills-gotta-get-paid kind of a way.  You don’t have to…

Who wants to be normal anyway?

Each individual in the world has been gifted a genius in order to make your unique difference in the world.  Doesn’t it follow that being too “normal” is going to get in the way of that?

DARE to be different …

… and be different to DARE! One of the things I love doing at the start of the year is getting people connected to their big dream objective for the year.  I touched on this in my earlier post about the PROUD yearly review, but I thought it could benefit from going into a little…

Enjoying the grind

In the “How to love your work” flow-chart there’s the question about learning to love the work you would rather not do.  In a previous post I addressed how you might learn to love the work that needs you to do it, but you find it boring or annoying.  And we have to recognise that…

Loving the boring bits

In the “How to Love Your Work” flow-chart I designed, there is a very important question: Is this a task you love? And almost as important is the question that comes further along the flow: Can you learn to love it? Let’s explore how that might be possible. Elements of the task Is it the…

How to love your work

I don’t think I’ve ever come across anyone who doesn’t want to love what they do for a living, but very few people really understand the process of organising your work so that you really can love it. So I’ve put together this simple flow-chart to help you make the right decisions when it comes…
