What fuels unexpected kindness?

 

 

Whilst working out of the house, in Central London, I'm still pleasantly surprised about how much kindness you see from the people there. Don't get me wrong, the rude people are still there too, but seeing kindness in action is always inspiring.

I was sitting in a coffee shop for the bulk of the day, working away. I like to work outside quite often and change locations through the day but today I was kind of tied to one place which gave me the chance to observe the people in the...

My Daughter Hated Physics Until Today....

 

 

My daughter is home schooled. This is because we travelled for a few years, living in a number of countries such as Morocco, Egypt, Malaysia and the US amongst others. She studies English, Maths, History, Geography, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Sociology. This went pretty well but she has always disliked physics as a subject.

Something interesting happened today however. She started doing some extra tuition, on top of her normal studies, at a college. As a result she has got...

Coaching Lessons From A 5 Year Old

In this video I share a few lessons I learned from some kids who came round to the house about a week ago.

I'm that Auntie that the nieces and nephews are a little bit scared of (because I'm the one who will tell them off!) but, they know that I also give them interesting things to do and think about.

On this day, I happened to give some advice to 7 kids, all aged under 8. In essence, I got them to make some checklists. I didn't make them. They did. They had ownership of the process. So...

Clarity

Can you imagine ever getting on a bus, train, or plane and not know where you are going? I am a firm believer in the idea that you need to know where you are going or its just a journey to nowhere. If you have ever been in a situation where you are wondering what you are doing today (or in life in general), chances are it's because you don't know your destination, you don't have clarity. 

To me, life is a journey that we take from A to B. A being when we are born, and B being when we...

Is Discipline Bad For You?

You are on a diet and you are keeping yourself in check, watching what you eat and how much you exercise. You might have a Fitbit helping you monitor your discipline. But I firmly believe that discipline is wrong for us and here is why.Look, a little bit of discipline is always good and helps you to get where you want to go, but having to be disciplined all the time reminds me of having to fight yourself and what you really want to do. This is the main reason why when we go on a diet or start...

The Most Important Currency

Have you ever wondered about the different types of currency? No, I don't mean the financial currencies of which they are 180 currencies as recognised by the UN in the world right now. The thing is; there is often a debate about the value of old currencies and new ones like the cryptocurrency bitcoin. But what we are not doing is having a real discussion on what currency is.

That one intrigues me because it allows an opportunity for different types of currency and that is what we are here to...

I Need A Coach

The coaching market is becoming more and more complicated with increasing numbers and types of coaches. The offer, skills and experience varies incredibly and can be very disorientating for someone new to the world of coaching. The key question here is how do you increase your chances of hiring the right coach to meet your needs. As someone who has extensive coaching experience and training, I believe that coaching can have a significant impact in the life of an individual in the area of...
