Five Million

Many of us struggle and fight and get frustrated about reach. Spend any amount of time around social media marketing and you’ll learn that your reach drops and drops over time. I was fortunate enough to receive this notification the other day: “5,000,000+ people were sent your answer in the Quora Digest” Yes, really. Five million. And…

Projection

I’ve talked about ‘Hustle’ before… the concept that we should work like mad, twenty hours a day in order to get what we want. And it got me to thinking about projection. You see, I wonder if those who say we must ‘hustle’ are doing so to feel better about themselves. It’s almost as if they’re…

The Simple Journal

Have you seen all those adverts for planners, gratitude journals, success diaries and so on? I’ve spent a long time figuring out what works for me and I thought I’d share… for me, simplicity was key… it had to be something I would stick to… Apart from this daily journal (which is often a reminder to myself…

Back On The Horse

Sometimes we slip. We’re building success habits and for some reason we find we’ve let them slide. A little while ago I realised I’d not done my morning meditation consistently for a good month or so. So a note went in my journal… “It might be helpful to get back into your morning routine.” And…

When I Fall

When We Label Emotions

If you study Zen for any amount of time you discover that much of our suffering comes from labelling things… “I am a bad person” or “That is wrong“. And we seem addicted to labelling our emotions. A feeling comes up in our body and we label it immediately as fear or anger or excitement. What we don’t realise is that…

Meet Them Where They’re At

When we perform transformation for our clients—whether that’s helping them to grow themselves or providing a service that makes their life ‘better’ in some way—we forget that they are not currently where they want to be. We can see the path very clearly… we can sell their house, cut their hair, groom their dog or…

Fine

Have you ever asked someone how they are, and they reply ‘fine’? I’m guessing the answer to this is ‘yes’, because people say ‘fine’ all the time. The biggest problem with ‘fine’ is that it conveys no information. All it says is “I have some problems and some successes, but I’m ignoring the problems and…
