I was out walking the other day and saw a beautiful swan on a lake.
And it got me thinking...
Isn't it funny how we appreciate swans for their beauty... but we don't do the same with ourselves!
One of my friends works at a company going through major layoffs.
They're offering voluntary redundancies to almost half their workforce.
It’s a pretty big deal; there’s a big payout for people who are eligible and want to leave.
A moment of truth...
Sometimes you’ll spend ages creating a cool, personalized free bonus for a client…
…and you won’t get a response back from them.
Keep going anyway.
I had a query from a reader recently who brought up a really interesting point.
I won’t go into details but, in short, she was struggling between two decisions: whether to do what her family wanted her to, or whether to follow her heart.
Last week I had a moment of doubt about my newsletters:
Perhaps they should be more impressive…
Have more 'bells and whistles'!
I was lying in bed the other night after a fairly tough day, and in a moment of calmness, I thought to myself:
“Well done me for getting through today.
Well done me for surviving!”
One of my family members works as a lawyer and gets paid ‘big bucks’.
But they occasionally work all-nighters (they go to work on Monday morning, work right though, and come home on Tuesday evening – still in the same clothes).
A good friend of mine just started her own business running a yoga and ski retreat.
She was nervous before she started (as is normal), and went through a period of doubt and procrastination.
Two of the most difficult bosses I ever worked for were people who managed from a place of fear.
What do I mean by that?
Well, basically, they were afraid in their management.
The most beautiful email relationship I have is with a guy I met at a conference a few years ago.
We didn’t even talk that much at the conference... we connected on a few shared beliefs, but didn’t get to chat that much.
