Does Micro-structuring Your Day Work?

 

Does micro-structuring your life work? Many of us struggle with how to structure our day in order to be at our most effective.

I believe, that if you do know how to structure your day it allows you to get more done. To achieve more.  I don't mean just being busy, but rather you are doing those thing that are really important.

So what it micro-structuring?

Are You Open To Feedback?

 

How open are you to feedback? This is quite an interesting question I thought. I was watching a TV programme with my son about angel investment into small restaurants. You might have seen this on the BBC.

As part of the process people, (usually food stall holders), present their food to a small group of potential investors and then they are given a pop-up restaurant in Manchester to run for a dinner serving and then a lunch serving the next day. The investors come and eat again in the...

How To Use The One Page Annual Planner

 

In this video I want to address planning. Planning for our lives, that is, and especially how to use the one page annual planner. It's a simple planner and a great place to start for people who've never used one before.

We often have ideas and goals for the things we want to achieve in the year ahead, but I believe that the main reason we don't achieve our goals, is that we're not planning them.

We need to start at a high level and that's where the one page annual planner comes in. It's...

What Happens When You Don't Decide?

 

Today I wanted to talk about when you DON'T decide. We probably think that we spend the bulk of our lives making good, strong decisions. I think, that we're making decisions about certain things in our lives but we ignore some of the important decisions that we should be making.

You've probably read stuff about how we remove decisions in our day such as what to wear. People will have 10 versions of the same t-shirt and jeans and that's what they wear. They've removed the decision about...

The Biggest Mistake People Make When Being Consistent

 

I'd made a decision to take my lunch to the gym with me today, as I knew I was going to have a heavy session, so I thought I'd rather eat before walking home past all the shops and getting tempted! Anyway, whilst eating, I got talking to one of the personal trainers there.

During the conversation it came up that I'd been going to the gym for about a year now, pretty consistently bar a few trips abroad. Here's the interesting thing though. It occurred to me that there's a mistake people...

What knowledge are you ignoring?

 

We have a huge amount of knowledge and information that we have access to, yet we ignore it.

Today, I was re-arranging my book shelf when I came across a book that I owned, that I have been trying to find in my local libraries! This got me thinking about how much knowledge we have, or is accessible to us that we simply ignore. We don't use it. I find it really strange that we don't tap into that information. The books are just left on the shelf, the courses are done and any advice...

5 Things I Learned About Myself Through Jumprope

 

I wanted to share with you 5 things that I've learned about jumping rope or skipping, depending on what you call it.

It's an amazing exercise, easy to start, relatively cheap (depending on your choice of rope) and can be done pretty much anywhere.

But first, my first tip with exercise, above all others, is to pick something that you enjoy. Chances are that you will then be able to keep it up, right? Especially, if it's a tough exercise.

Pick something that challenges you. Set yourself...
