    • Three Powerful Techniques for Creating a Year You'll Love

      Hello 2018! Creating a visual representation of your goals and dreams is a powerful technique to support purposeful action. The representation (or anchor) acts as a strong reinforcement of the energy and intention driving your goals and helps you focus on what is truly important to you as the year unfolds. I've used many different techniques over the years, from creating Vision Boards - simple collages on poster board using words and pictures torn or cut from magazines, or more fluid versions using corkboards and tacks (nice because you can easily add or rearrange as changes occur) -

    • Internet is fast-food world of information

      There is something nice about print. In the digital age, we regularly (if not constantly) find ourselves online consuming news, checking in on friends and family, participating in community discourse and accessing data and information. Everything we could possibly want to find out about it is literally at our fingertips. Simply typing the word “search” into Google, gave me more than a billion results in less than a second—0.37 of a second to be exact. The Internet is a fast-food world where we can get pretty much whatever we want instantaneously. It is changing the way we work

    • Want the Truth? Look Inside.

      Woke up this morning pondering the nature of truth. Yep. It's truly the kind of stuff I think about. C'mon, you know you do, too. It's just human to wonder about these things. Many years ago I attended a profound personal development workshop. Posted prominently on the front wall was a large sign pretty much screaming: TELL YOUR TRUTH. Being writerly inclined, I silently pondered: Shouldn't

      Headlines from 1970

      Clans have been gathering in the summertime since time began.  These events can be a strange mixture of reconnecting, reminiscing and regret that can sometimes bring on a sort of bewildering vertigo. The vertigo results from being suddenly flung backward in time into one's ungainly 12-year old self, and when the time travel trigger is one of your first true loves, the journey is a cocktail

The notion is that it is life’s ordinary moments, small victories, and day-to-day joys that provide an infinite source of contentment and delight. That these incidental happenings, moreso than big occasions, epic wins or brass bands trumpeting our achievements, are what sustain us and give us hope and

      An Equation Where Work Equals Joy

      One of the questions that frequently comes up in coaching sessions is: How do I discover what I am passionate about? My answer is pretty straightforward, and, in true coaching fashion comes as another question: How do you spend your time when no-one is paying you? There's a passion. What usually follows is brainstorming and a little homework before the next session. For

      Of Alleys and Entrepreneurs

      When I was little, one of my favourite places to play was the alleyway behind our house. It was the sixties, and pretty much everybody had an alleyway. (Not a faux-alleyway either, which seems to be a Johnny-come-lately residential planning response to the blight that is sprawl. Oops. Ranting. Note to self: don't be a ranter). The alley is where I learned to ride my bike, played skipping
