5 Ways A Checklist Will Transform Your Life

 

Checklists. One of my number one tools. They're so useful and I use them pretty much everywhere and for everything.

The main reason, for me, behind the power of the simple checklist is that when you write it down, it makes a commitment from you to do that thing.

Using checklists can take your from uncertainty to clarity. It might sound like hyperbole but they can even save lives! That's right. I read about a surgeon who uses checklists to make sure that the operations, especially...

Are You Settling In Life?

 

I want to start by telling you about a story involving my son. We were actually in California and he wanted to buy some new trainers.

So, my view is that he gets a pair that are fit for purpose and that will last him. It turns out that buying trainers for teenage boys is as hard as buying for teenage girls!

We went to lots of different stores and he tried on any number of pairs of trainers, but nothing seemed to fit properly. He really wanted a particular brand of shoe and so the one...

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?

Micro-structuring is quite an easy concept. Many of us feel overwhelmed. There's so much to get done. Once we start to feel...

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...
