The Key to Being Your Best

Comments Off on The Key to Being Your Best
Have you ever thought about how you structure your day vs. how you should structure your day? A leading question, I know, asked to generate some thoughts. We actually all have a “prime” time or “golden” time during the day when we feel great. It is during this time that we should schedule our most important tasks. This is referred to as our energy cycle. An energy cycle is how your body functions throughout the day. You need to take note of when you feel good, when you feel tired, when you are just chugging along. Ask questions such as are you an early bird or a night owl? Listen to what your body is telling you. It is not always possible to have control over all your tasks or when...

The Secret to Having More Time

Time only needs ‘managing’ because we don’t seem to have enough time to do everything we want and need to do. In particular, we never seem to be able to ‘find time’ for those important but not urgent activities. Stop looking.   You’ll never find time. It isn’t lost. You’re living it. You have to consciously decide to live it in certain ways and not others. You have to make time by taking it away from one activity and giving it to another. Start Living Liz Cassidy   Action: What is most important for you to do this week? Make the time to do it.   It’s not about not having enough time it’s about it not being a priority.   Thank you and I look forward to sharing more tips, strategies and skills to support you to be more organised so that you too can create a better...

Using Your Power – The Power to Choose

Comments Off on Using Your Power – The Power to Choose
Have you been using your power to make the right decisions in line with your goals and what you want to achieve from life? Have you been thinking about what makes you happy? The power to choose is what gives us the opportunity to create a different life, right now! We, as an individual, have the power to choose. If we set a goal of health and fitness which means we exercise everyday, then that needs to become a priority. We have the power to choose what we do, that is, we choose to make the time to exercise. The entire goal setting theory will not work unless we accept that we have the power to choose. Remember don’t let age, life or other excuses get in your way. You don’t have to be...

Comments Off on Do You Ever Feel That There is Never Enough Time?
Do you ever feel that there is never enough time to do everything you have to do and feeling that you are never going to catch up? You can get control of your time and your life only by changing the way you think, work and deal with the never ending list of responsibilities that flows towards you each day. What you can do is stop doing some things and start spending more time on the few activities that can really make a difference in your life. Success is Predictable Simply put, some people are doing better than others because they do things differently and they do the things right.

Are You Organising Your Tasks?

Comments Off on Are You Organising Your Tasks?
Have you been more proactive in your planning since attending one of my workshop, reading my book or enrolling in my e-course?  I certainly hope so.  Are you now conscious of the benefits of thinking ahead so you’re no longer in an urgent rush, that you can delay a task if something more important comes up because you are thinking of planning no longer as a day by day event but as an overall weekly structure? Are you organising your tasks so you know what needs to be accomplished and when it needs to be accomplished by? It’s an incredible freedom isn’t it? The key is not to prioritise what’s on your schedule but to schedule your priorities.  Stephen Covey The key is to think about what you need to accomplish this week? Schedule...
