How to Manage Dis-empowerment At Work (Before you exit singing “Ding dong the witch is dead…”)

So, you’re strong, you’re focused, you’re capable, you’re achieving. You hit your targets, you play that corporate game, you feel in your bones you’re destined for great things at this company, and then boom. Slam. Pop. Wham. Ow. ‘Tis not so. Someone else gets the promotion you knew was yours. A new boss is brought in between you and your…

Playing the Matrix | Mike Dooley

I’m already reading this masterpiece for the second time. It has struck a chord deeply within me. Mike's simple life philosophy is that ‘Thoughts become things and words give you wings’. He’s from the school of enlightened ones whom acknowledge that everything you say is an affirmation, be it good or bad. I like his thinking.  It's slightly esoteric when…

Our Insatiable need to be part of a Tribe

It’s a primordial instinct to be part of a tribe. One of Maslow’s well documented needs. We want to belong. To feel love and a sense of connection. Community. Togetherness. Shared goals. Common purpose. It’s wonderful when we’re in sync with our gang and all moving in the same direction together. Each Tribe Brings Different Fulfillment Now each one of…

Change your habits, change your life.  It's simple and just takes some conscious effort. The Power of Habit - My Personal View Having read lots of habit transformation books over the years this is my favourite and I'm now six months sober and off sugar and caffeine after years of dabbling with quitting prior to reading this book.  It's a…

Raise Your Vibration | Kyle Gray

I tentatively bought this book unsure quite where it would take me. It felt like a big departure from my more practical ‘be more effective at work’ personal development books, but I can unequivocally say that I love this book and it’s been a perfect transition into more ethereal realms.  The book has a solid introduction where Kyle shares his…

The Mastery of Will – Beyond Marshmallows…

So, I’ve finished The Marshmallow Test.  Great, fascinating fodder to digest whilst running.  (I have downloaded Rob Lowe’s autobiography as my indulgent weekend Audible ‘applying make up, driving nonchalantly guilty pleasure’ listen, but restrict myself to focus on the self-development matter Monday to Friday.  Good discipline me thinks.) A lot of what Walter Mischel espouses feels commonly known already and I had…
