What My Mum Said…

If you've seen me speak, there are several phrases that I use all of the time. One is that "life teaches us what we need to know but we ignore it all of the time". In my case, as in many of yours I am sure, this started young. My mum used to give great advice, I just did not pay much attention to it. Here are just a few... You get out what you put in.

It’s Not Whether You Know Something, It’s Whether You Do It Consistently… Or Not!

Do you do what you know? Do you to it consistently? At the start of many of my talks, I explain how many people spend their time and energy looking for “new stuff” or “advanced stuff” but do not consistently do what they know.

Just Do It, Stop Procrastinating & Take Action

Sometimes you just have to just do it. Whatever it is. Stop prevaricating, stop procrastinating, stop dreaming about it and take action. Most people are really good at procrastinating.

I am a perfectionist so cannot put out substandard work." etc etc. I am sure that you can add your own reasons and excuses for procrastination to this list. I write many articles for people. ...

Keeping Things Simple

In this video I want to talk about simplicity and the importance of keeping things simple. In my last video about manners, I got an awful lot of responses - the vast majority saying that they do think manners are still really important and several writing me rants about how manners are dying along with other things such as courtesy, dress sense and punctuality. Anyway, there was one email in the middle of all of that which was equally important and it was ... Read more

It’s like being whisked back to your childhood what with putting out carrots for reindeer and tipples for Father Christmas. Fabulous. As anyone who has them knows, life is full on with children. Amazing but full on. You have very little time to yourself. ... Read more

Challenging markets, increased competition, rising expectations and always on technology have created a perfect storm of never-ending tasks that beg to be done. When you look at those who succeed and compare them with those that don’t or those that achieve merely adequate results, one of the differentiating factors is how people use their time. So here, ...
