Why we do what we do!

I am all about people and behaviour, but rest assured I have the logical mind and experience in implementing systems, new ways of working, changes etc. whilst still keeping the people focus, to back up my approach.

After all what is the use in a vision no one else in your business is working towards, processes no one follows, or a new system that no one uses...

Motivation Part 4 - Routine

Adding a trigger to your routine is like a pre match warm up, it isn't something you need motivation to do, it is just something simple that will become the start of your routine.

For me my work day starts when I open my office door, and finishes when I close the door. Opening the door is so simple, no motivation needed there! But it becomes symbolic and provides my brain with a message to say I am in work mode, or that I am out of work mode.

Motivation Part 1 - Goals

To get motivated you first need something to get motivated towards and we want you to set goals with these two principles in mind...

The very first thing to acknowledge, is that that statement is 100% correct! And the sooner you recognise that, the easier it is to realign and understand what you can expect from other people.

Put it this way, there will be many many businesses that you admire, and are a trusty supporter and follower of yourself... but you don't  care about that business as much as your own, right? It wasn't founded on your blood, sweat, tears, ideas and hard earned cash?!

Insta goals...

I want to share with you my phenomenon of 'Insta goals'....

By Insta goals I mean the goals you feel you SHOULD have in order to live up to the expectations set by social media and projections from the media.

Everyone's life looks perfect on Instagram so it creates a culture of wanting to emulate that life and the feeling that if our lives aren't that perfect, then we are failing.

Musings of a sore loser...

Connect 4 represents life as a business owner - spend too much time focusing on what the competition is doing, you miss opportunities and lose sight of the strategy you started with, falling into reactive mode.
