    • 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) -

    • Mourning in the digital age

      One of the many things that have changed in the digital age is the way we grieve. Researching our book, Digital Legacy Plan, due out in March 2019, co-author Angela Crocker and I discovered some interesting research by professor Tony Walter, a sociologist from the U.K. who has written and taught widely on the social aspects of death, dying and loss. In his examination of online memorial culture in the context of the history of mourning (New mourners, old mourners: online memorial culture as a chapter in the history of mourning, New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia, 2015), he compares

    • Let Happiness Get Your Attention

      What is #everyday happiness? Everyday happiness is a notion and it is also a conversation. 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

      Multipreneurs: Moodling By The Pool

      “The imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient happy idling, dawdling and puttering.” - Brenda Ueland. I would say that multipreneurs need moodling, too. Moodling is a term coined by writer, Brend Ueland in her book So You Want to Write. In it, she describes the state of moodling as a state necessary in order to truly create. Moodling offers a sort of incubation or 'baking

      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

      Mindful Monday: Meditation Made Easy

      I was reading James Altucher's book Choose Yourself this morning and in it James relays a story about Gandhi where he tells his compatriots that he needs to set aside one hour a day to do meditation. They exclaim, "Oh no, you can't do that! You are too busy, Gandhi!" They were, after all, trying to free a nation. Ghandi replies, "Well, then. I now need to set aside two hours a day to do

      Dancing at the Edge: The Crossroads of Fear and Excitement

      Multipreneurs are much admired. I don't just say this to be smug. People often marvel at how much we get up to and the sheer number of diverse projects on the go at any one time. For us, it's basically just the state of the nation. How it is. The way we live and work. Most multipreneurs I know are usually finishing a project, starting a project and in the middle of a project (or projects) all
