Our Priorities Are What We Do, Not What We Say!


Reading time: 2 minutes Ever find you say your priorities are one thing and then you do something completely different? We all know that life isn't neat and tidy where we always get to do what we want, even assuming “we” know what that is. So we can have days & weeks or even years where we feel obliged to put aspects of our lives somewhat on hold in service of other areas. This need not be work-related. I have some amazing friends who dedicated years to caring for elderly relatives 💖 That meant not pursuing a whole series of [...]

Ever Told You Are a Procrastinator?


Reading time: 2 minutes You’re not alone. Pretty much everyone procrastinates in some way and up to 20% of the adult population are deemed chronic sufferers. There is no doubt that there can be real world consequences if you consistently miss deadlines at work or in life. Business can be lost and fines levied. And yet, if we’re honest, many deadlines are wholly arbitrary, particularly the ones we set ourselves. What’s more, how does labelling people with a problem or telling them they are wasting their lives help? Might there not be less aggressive means of framing what in essence [...]

Does Time = Experience?


Reading time: 2 minutesThe question for us all is can we alter our experience of what we see as less meaningful activities and create more positive and memorable moments?How we perceive time has a significant impact on our day-to-day lives and more broadly on public policy. Research suggests that an hour spent on a meaningful activity carries more perceived value than an hour spent on something felt to be less meaningful. As a result, much effort and money is spent on ways of shortening such less meaningful activities. Take, for example, the money spent on infrastructure to shorten journey times. [...]

Is Your Morning Routine Serving Your Day?


My mother always used to say “Start as you mean to continue”. The wonderful gift we receive each morning is a blank canvas on which to paint our day. So, I’m curious, what are the first things you put on that canvas? In short, what is your morning routine? Some people start with their inbox, others with a favourite book and still others with a morning run! Some people don’t have any. There is clearly no one right routine but there probably are ways of better preparing for whatever a particular day has in store for us. My morning routine [...]

Can Time be Lost?


The question of “Can time be lost?” came up recently in conversation. The feeling was that once you lose control over how you “spend” your time it is in essence lost. The examples given were being stuck in traffic or kept waiting for an appointment. Clearly very few of us would actively choose such options. And yet, like it or not, we are still living those moments so why not make the most of them? Those traffic lights can be a source of stress (holding us up from whatever we are to do next) or in the words of Thich [...]
