When you feel stuck, uninspired, lost and demotivated and you don't know what to do or how to get out of it start with step one: do not panic. Do not allow feelings of being last in the race, of being lapped and disgraced, or of being the only one not ‘making moves’ to assuage you. It happens. Sometimes you stand still for too long and negative feelings wash over you to the point where you feel like you are drowning. You’re not drowning. Breathe, focus on what is going right and keep the bigger...

March(ing) Along

Did you know there’s not that much difference between a new year and a new month? Did you know that a lot of organizations start their financial year during months like April, June and August? What does that mean? That their new year runs on a different calendar, so too their aspirations, deliverables, deadlines and financial planning. Did you know that you are allowed to do the same? There is no law that states you must be constrained by the calendar or pressured by the seasons; you can live, thrive, plan and pursue at your...

Reclaiming My Time

Have you ever experienced that awkward pause when money falls to the ground? There is usually a crisp tension in the air. It is unnatural. No matter how busy, tired, hot, bothered or rushed the person who drops the money is, they always take the time to pick it up. They stop what they are doing and retrieve their money. You just don’t throw money away. It is simply not done. Perhaps this is because money is finite. You only have access to a certain amount of it. No matter how large that amount is...

Looking Forward to Looking Back

Do you remember when you thought you might never breathe properly again? That it would always hurt? That you would always know exactly where your heart was located because of that incessant pain in your chest, lump in your throat and nausea in the pit of your stomach? Do you remember when you thought that life could not possibly go on? Heartbreak hurts. Whether it occurs in the form of the loss of a relationship, the loss of a person or the loss of something else one holds dear – it hurts. Initially it consumes...

Someone Please Call 911 – Emergency

Have you ever found yourself in an emergency situation? Did it seem like everything was falling apart and the sky was falling down? What did you do? How did you resolve it? Did you assume that you had literally hit rock bottom and your life was coming to an end? What happened next? Did you die? Did you survive? You most likely made it out alive didn’t you? Most of the events we categorize as emergencies are usually not quite emergencies. An emergency is defined as ‘a serious, unexpected, and often dangerous situation requiring immediate...

Are you looking back? Are you running forward? Did you answer ‘yes’ to both questions? Do you realize that looking back and running forward at the exact same moment leaves you stuck on repeat, like a scratched CD that keeps playing the same part of the song to the annoyance of all listeners. Yes, you can look back. Yes, you should run forward. However you should not look back to the detriment of moving forward. Do not look back to a particular point as if it were the most important moment you have or will ever...

SOS: Save Our-Selves

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There once was an old fisherman who lived a very simple life. He was retired and did not have much, but he had everything he needed. He had his fishing pole, a few spare makeshift poles, a can of bait which he replenished often and a strong desire to help others. Everyone in his local community knew that if you did not have a meal you could approach the local fisherman, who would teach you to fish, fish alongside you and share a meal from the catch of the day with you on the dock...

Big, Bigger, then Biggest

There is a tension that exists between where you are and where you are going. There is a tension that exists between what you see when you dream and the reality you encounter when you open your eyes. There is a tension that exists between your current roles and responsibilities and your future ascension to your tailor-made throne. In that tension lies the change and the tools required to bridge the gap and progress from one state of being to another. If that tension is handled appropriately it inspires, propels and accelerates your journey –...
