I believe personal development and leadership is integral to developing your business. Changing our businesses means having to become leaders, the kind of business owners who commit to developing as people, as managers, as communicators, and as coaches.
Many of the greatest thinkers about business and work believe that Work-life-balance is an unattainable dream, at least in the way we generally think about it. And you know this is true too, because in the real world of your business, if anything is to get done at all, it’s all down to you; if you don’t do it, the whole thing collapses like a house of cards.
The first responsibility of any business owner is to look after the assets of the business and to maximise the return the business gets from those assets. And so, the most important job of a responsible business owner is to look after him- or herself.
I believe that effective business coaching and development programs should focus as much on the person of the business owner, as they are on the mechanics of business. As a Business-Life Coach, therefore I want to help you become the very strongest foundation for your business you can be.
I realised, one day, that what caused my procrastination, was not knowing what to write. That insight changed my procrastination patterns forever because I started taking a whole new approach to my writing. From that day, I decided to trust myself that something would come out as long as I’d start writing.
But I don’t want those options. I resent being forced to choose one of them. What I really want is to throw a tantrum, stamp my feet, throw myself on the floor and scream at the top of my voice, until someone fixes things for me.
The ultimate aim of many of the religions and philosophies of life, as I understand them, is to attain a state of mind akin to that of the frogs: Nothing matters, except being entirely present in the here and now. Being here and nowhere else.
