6WS - How time flies when you're busy

My goodness what a week, I think I've done more work in the last three days than I've done in the last 6 months. Might be a little bit of an exaggeration, but not much.

I haven't even turned on my home computer this week, my brain has been so seriously addled by work that I come home and sit in front of the television at night in a daze. This week I've had a crash course in corporate property management and I'm seriously flying by the seat of my pants.

Fake it 'til you make it

I'm not good with receiving criticism, even when it's constructive criticism and was asked for. Does anyone ever like being told they could do something better? It seems that my website is a little bit confused about what it wants to be when it grows up.

So I have plenty of revision and revamping to be done, although the website is probably mirroring my life at the moment as well. I'm not really sure that I know what I want to be when I grow up either.

When giving up is the right thing to do

Every now and again you get that perfect email or message and it arrives at just the right time – almost like serendipity, the Universe suddenly knows that you need it. That’s how it usually works for me anyway.

My most recent ‘needed’ message was from a former boss yesterday. Things have been a kind of tough in my little world lately and he knows me fairly well. The post was titled “15 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy”.

6WS - Greener grass on the other side?

Should I feel sad, disgruntled or bemused? My cat has defected because the grass really is greener on the other side of the fence.

She’s old, senile and doddery – much as I imagine I’ll be at her age, which is about 105 in cat years. Actually to be alive at that age in my house is just an amazing feat in itself. Fifteen years in a house with dogs, numerous animals and three growing boys.

Sharing some wisdom

Wisdom arrived in my inbox tonight - so I had to share. "The main reason someone moves mountains, wins friends, influences people, amasses a fortune or anything because they thought they would" - Thanks Mr Universe

Consequently I'm ready to move mountains (big, scary ones) and my advice to anyone who doubts that they too can move mountains, if you think you can't - then you won't.

I'm a creature of habit it seems

I tried a number of different ideas for my blog and guess what, I'm back to where I started - well almost. Some things are just meant to be I think.

It's not that I don't like change, it's just that no matter how many variations I tried this is the one that works the best.

6WS - We all need something to anticipate

We need something to look forward to, something to work towards, something to hope for. The last few months I've been a little disheartened, a little bit bored, a little painful to be around.

I'd let myself get to a stage where I wasn't working towards anything, I had no goals in place, nothing to anticipate. I wasn't actively achieving anything (other than getting out of bed and going to work and then repeating it the next day) I think this is also commonly called getting stuck in a rut.

Communicating well - it should be a law!

Have you ever thought about how important communication is? Great loves end when communication falls apart, wars start when communication breaks down, opportunities are lost when communication fails.

A successful launch...finally

If you wait until the perfect conditions and the perfect timing, then you'll never achieve anything.

I'm a perfectionist, I don't apologise for that - but there does come a time when I have to give myself a slap and say enough already.
