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

LEADERSHIP – WHEN TO LEAD FROM BEHIND OR FROM THE FRONT

The single key to success in life is understanding leadership. What makes a great leader, makes a great parent. What makes a great leader makes a great friend. It’s all connected. However, it’s all a matter of scale. What you can do for one person, or a family, you cannot

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

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

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

The Miracle of Disappointment

Nature never apologises. Everything she does, she means to do. There are no accidents in nature. She intends everything that happens. Everything has a purpose. And, one such miracle is disappointment. We project our hopes onto a screen as a movie projects onto a television screen. We have a script,

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
