TO THE HEART OF LEADERSHIP

Your heart is the core of your most powerful leadership, your inner joy. People follow your heart when it is open and awake. When you have finished exploring intellect and attending ceremonies, when you are exhausted trying to change the unchangeable, then you come to realise that the whole shooting

THE Important Art Of Letting Go

When the wealthy tycoon died, someone asked, “how much did he leave?” and the answer came, “everything.” I think we forget this and in the course of our lives start to worry about the livelihood of those we leave behind. This is nice. However, there are some things we hang

BALANCED CENTRED AND CALM – LEADERSHIP ATTITUDES THAT WIN FRIENDS

As above so below: it’s a great quote for those looking to live authentic lives – it means something different for everyone. For me, a student of nature, it means big theories (opinions) are fantasies unless we can also witness what we say (opinion) in small things too. Here, the

Leaders DO Not React – Using Red Flags to Prevent Leadership Failures

There are only two things make leaders react: guilt (grief) from the past or fear of the future. In the present neither exist. A leader never reacts. If they react they are in fear or guilt. Either of which destroys trust. The only thing that triggers leaders to be in

EXCELLENCE AT WORK – CHASING THE UNICORN

There is no better metaphor for excellence than weight lifting. A 73Kg person from China has the world record for clean and jerk of 169 kg… more than twice their body weight. For Women, 71kg person, 152 kg. The difference is negligible. For the unlimited weight person, men, the record

People pleasing

People pleasing has a bad reputation. It seems when things go wrong we easily blame it for lost direction. But is it so wrong? Every entertainer does it. Every entrepreneur thrives on it. Every athlete can’t pay their bills unless they do it. A surgeon would end in jail if

SELF IMPROVEMENT

Today is a joyful video about stress. There is no sound. I didn’t add sound. The video plays itself and has small gifs to demonstrate the message. The message is: if you allow stress to accumulate, you’ll make a mess of all of your life, not just what’s causing it.

Death and the Fear of it

It’s Sunday morning, 7am, I’m still in bed. It’s a rare thing, I’m usually up coaching someone or walking the beach doing podcasts, or at the least riding my bike. But today is different. The Taliban are attacking Afghanistan – again – America is pulling out – just like Vietnam

SLEEP

Dishes done with love do not keep us awake. Tea without caffeine is not a cause. Cooking lovingly will soothe us ready for sleep and time spent working before bed on things poetic or artistic don not keep us awake. What we do with love makes us sleep deeper no

ANGER MANAGEMENT

There can be lots to be angry about. Anger is a huge and essential part of nature. Anger, like everything in the universe is a gift to you. You can use anger. Anger is not a bad thing. Anger is both good and bad. Anger is simply anger until you

SELF RELIANCE

RALF WALDO EMERSON What is the Meaning of Self-Reliance? I read the other day some verses written by an eminent painter which were original and not conventional. The soul always hears an admonition in such lines, let the subject be what it may. The sentiment they instil is of more

LIFE’S SECRET

Separated from nature I am whole. I feel whole at least. Four walls define me. I am wealthy because my bank defines me so. I am healthy, because I do nothing to interrupt my experience of it. I am good because I do nothing more than watch TV and eat.
