Risk it for a biscuit

We had a group discussion about problems and worries.   Are we too attached to worry and problem solving especially when the more we think about problems, the more problems we create? And my first reaction was to ask:  Is it really a problem, or merely a choice / decision point that makes us uncomfortable?  Getting to say…

Winning vs PB’s

It is tricky when you share good news and someone else is stuck in a funk.  I’d say curiosity usually wins out, but they might feel like they don’t have much going on and to start poking around may only serve to exacerbate the situation.  Unless you can seek to make it more future focused… what’s coming…

100th Post!!! – FAQ’s

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2021 HERE WE GOGOGO!!!! In my line of creative work I get asked lots of questions. Some are seeking the direct answer. Most are seeking another question from me. I learned from the book – The Coaching Habit – what’s the question behind the question? So, someone might ask: How easy is…

Self-Limiting SMART Goals

During a virtual coffee call, the host asked for help with SMART goals. And it’s that time of year when we start to think about what we want to accomplish in the New Year. I had some thoughts on this subject… SMART goals were rammed down my military throat for 15 years and didn’t mean…

It’s Christmas Jim, but not as we know it.

December 2020 marked quite an astonishing milestone for British TV. On the 9th December 1960, the first episode of Coronation Street was broadcast. Originally, it was only supposed to be for 12 episodes… Now, 60 Years later, it’s still going. Airs multiple times per week and has become the biggest soap in the UK. Who…

No tea and sympathy around this campfire…

A sneak peak… Shhhh, don’t tell my publisher XD 😉 “…So, the only one flapping over Alphie, was Alphie. In her new found appreciation for what was right in front of her, when she did get to write this all became obvious and the nerves were calming as each day passed and her self-awareness grew.…

One Year On…

Something came to my attention today…   I realised I missed a milestone.  How did that happen???? A couple of days ago I remembered I have surpassed my first anniversary as a veteran.  It was 23rd Oct 2019 that I left the confines of a military establishment for the first time in 15 years with the plan to not…

Baking in Legacy

When grappling with knowing my self-worth as a woman and setting my own bar as opposed to obeying to someone else’s sliding scale of potential / success / pay, I have been led to these questions: Where do I get my sources of validation?  And do they value intellect and contribution, as opposed to physical attributes…

What the fricketyfrack am I doing?

Can you be all of who you are and still be successful?  Am I able to be myself in the work I’m doing?  How do I feel about that? Were questions posed in a recent weekly discussion group. First we thought it would a good start to define “success” and define “work”. Thinking about Liz Gilbert and…

A Little Less To-Do. A Little More Ta-Da

I went on a call to discuss Celebration and unpack why we don’t give the smaller wins the mini-celebration they deserve. On the call we discussed how we already celebrate and there wasn’t much to discuss. We don’t do it enough. End of. I have Wine-Down Friday. A reward for getting through the week… without…
