A planner is an essential planning and organisational tool for anyone who wants to achieve more, improve their time management and reduce general overwhelm and stress in their lives.
You only need to walk into any department store or stationery store to be spoilt for choice when it comes to diaries and planners and it can be confusing to try and choose the perfect planner if you’re not quite sure what to look for or what you need.
Everyone is busy.
I hear people talk about being a ‘busy mum’ or a ‘busy working mum’ or a ‘busy stay-at-home mum’ but the actual fact is that everyone is busy.
Everyone has responsibilities, goals and actions that they need to complete and although some people seem to...
Have you ever felt unsure of your direction?
Or been so confused by the opportunities that present themselves at the most random times? Or images and ideas that appear but you're unsure why?
This is the case for my guest today, Jess Connor.
Jess attended my first vision board workshop back in 2016 and instead of walking out with a carefully curated vision board full of her niche business area and focus, she walked out with a somewhat confusing collection of visual images that made absolutely no sense to her.
Fast forward 4 years and Jess is living inside that vision board.
In this episode of the podcast, Jess opens up about this process and the series of events that presented themselves to her to get her to where she is...
Ever feel like you’ve been busy all day yet nothing of true importance has ever been accomplished?
There’s always stuff to do and there’s always those random, incidental tasks that pop up every micro second that need our attention.
Or do they?
Not everything is urgent or important. Yet we tend to make life that way.
Here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to create an analogy for you about a campfire. Aka your big dream. It’s your big goal. The big ambition. The thing you’re working towards.
Your end result is a raging campfire. One that you need to keep burning to keep you warm and enable you to cook and feed yourself. You need that fire to burn even if you’re away from the...
I’m a big dreamer. I constantly seem to have a second story playing in the background of my brain, visualising the future. Perhaps you could say that I’m always optimistically painting my future and planting seeds for the universe to scoop up and plant on the road ahead.
Does dreaming work? Ummmm hell yes. I’ve designed my life just the way I like it (and it’s only going to get better).
As an educator, I work with people every day who present to me their best ideas and plans for their future. These are people who dream big, even when uncertain of how they’ll actually pull it off. But they’re optimistic and excited.
And you know what? Some of these people WOW me, and others don’t surprise me at...
With the Internet at our fingertips every moment of the day, it’s impossible NOT to take notice of what everyone else is doing. It wasn’t until I opened an email from a colleague this week that I realised just how paralysed I have become in my own business. I’m so paralysed, that every time I have an ‘idea,’ it already seems so similar to something I’ve seen somewhere else... the language, the image, the message.
How do you know what is actually true to you if you can’t block out everyone else?
I never stop dreaming.
I am one of those people who constantly have a million ideas buzzing through their mind at once.
Not all brilliant ideas... and quite a few ri-donk-ulous ones too.
I have succeeded in setting amazing business goals that are achievable and attainable and... well... safe :-(
I know I can achieve them in time. Every time I set these goals, I think to myself, "if I can achieve these goals and get my shit (my processes) sorted out, THEN I'll be able to focus on getting bigger and better. I fear I've done it all around the wrong way.
You see, this is where working from a home-based business can really SUCK. I have no colleagues to bounce my ideas off. No one to say "that's a great idea" or "have you thought about...
