I remember the first “personal growth” exercise I created.
(I say “created” – I’m sure other people have done it too, but I didn’t know it at the time.)
I was thinking about me and my partner today. We go through ups and downs - like any couple - and have moments where it feels like we’re on different planets.
Someone close to me recently decided to stop working on the business idea they'd been pursuing.
They’d got pretty far with it... had been working on it for most of the year... but decided it wasn’t for them.
Last week, I found some candles I'd hardly used (and if that isn’t a catchy opener, I don’t know what is!)
This one kinda speaks for itself... why should we keep going, when pursuing a goal can be so tough?
So often goals can feel pointless. You feel like you’re going round in circles, and it’s tempting (and easier) to watch TV or hang out on social media.
Quite a few people have joined the community recently, so I thought now might be a great time to explain where the name The Five Percent came from.
“Skip what you do, and tell me what you love.”
Very often, our world seems so full of bad news - murders and tragedies and pain.
I read something recently that said that we’ve never been exposed to so much bad news.
I was feeling totally overwhelmed the other day.
I had a zillion things on my to-do list, as well as my freelance work, work on my business, looking after the baby, and household chores.
Today I want to talk about feeling bad about feeling bad.
(And then feeling bad about feeling bad about feeling bad... Okay - enough, Claire!)
