Ever heard this saying by Abbie Hoffman? Plenty of room for thought!
Well, I’m sure you’ve heard this one “I have the right to freedom of speech?”
Maybe it was from your kids. Or your friend. Or the well-meaning lady who disagrees with your opinion on social media.
But what does freedom of speech really mean? And does it even exists?read more
If you are busy being busy and not sure where or how to free up some time, let’s identify together what we can easily do to give time back to you.

Where in your life have you closed your eyes and just hoped ‘something’ would just go away? Let’s be honest, we all do it!
The question is did it go away?
Did the situation start off with a little bit of procrastination and then did it grow into a BIG FROG?read more
Have you heard of the famous frog analogy?
“If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.” -Mark Twain
So, what is the frog and why the heck are we eating it?read more
You have a list of things you need to do, but then you procrastinate.
You are always running out of time, and you are unable to focus on what truly makes you happy.
You are always feeling tired and unprepared whenever you sit down to start a task. Sound familiar? We all suffer from a lack of motivation from time to time. But how do you get out of the slump?
When was the last time you felt like you truly listened to someone during a conversation?
Recently, I’ve found myself in situations where people have tried to be interesting – rather than interested – during our conversations. Instead of listening or asking about where I am at in life, they dumped their conversation onto me and then left. Have we lost the art of conversation?
Have you ever worked in a business where there is zero accountability?
Often I talk to business owners, parents and even in personal conversations about how there is a pattern of lack of accountability.
What happens when there is zero accountability in the workplace, or even at home?
Accountability is one of the most important elements of a high functioning workplace and home life. Not only does accountability increase productivity, but it also is linked to higher performance and employee morale. When we let accountability slip at home, we often find ourselves resentful and unhappy with our kids, husband or wife, without any real prospects for change.
So how do you hold yourself and others accountable and feel okay about it?
When was the last time you complained about someone?
For most of us, it was probably within the last week or so.
It’s in human nature to complain about what people are continually doing wrong. Interestingly enough, not many people will actually do something about it. Now, I have managed and owned multiple businesses, and in this time, I found staff would complain about other staff members. Most of the time, they would tell me the issues so that I was aware, but it was almost always followed up with, “You can’t say anything because it will cause a problem or she will be angry at me!”. Sound familiar? Where can you go with that?
Are you drowning in deadlines at work? Do you feel like you are never on top of everything at home? Are you always finding reasons as to why you don’t have time to work on your dream projects? It may be time to start delegating the workload. When we delegate, we open up more opportunities for a more balanced life in both the home and workplace. Now, delegation doesn’t always come naturally. It can feel uncomfortable and accepting help can be challenging. However, just like other skills, delegation can be learnt. Why do we find delegating tasks so tricky?read more
