Tangible Results - Fast Track to Freedom

The Argument

As I got up from my seat on the ferry, there was a woman in the aisle wearing a gorgeous purple top with matching purple hair.  Purple is a favourite colour and I was thinking of having purple streaks myself so I said to her "I love your hair, it looks great".  Imagine my surprise when she turned around and told me firmly that it looked all washed out, it needed redoing, it was normally much brighter.  And she capped it off with the damning indictment "in fact it looks cheap"   

Extraordinary Resources

One of my little maxims is that life is unexpected.  It proved so for me last week.  One moment I had never heard of a man called Craig Hamilton, an organisation called Integral Enlightenment or a course called "Awakening to an Evolutionary Relationship to Life"  and then 10 minutes later - the length of time it took me to skip through the course description - I was subscribed.  

What do you need to “Unlearn”?

What else would it be beneficial for you to unlearn? While I was searching my bookshelf for a book I wanted, the title of another book, "A Life of Unlearning", seemed to jump out at me.   It rang true for me - it seems that in order to live our life in the best possible way, one of the best possible things we can do is to unlearn some (maybe most!) of what we have already learned.  It's not always easy to do that because we are highly habitual - I remember John, my ballroom dancing teacher, bemoaning the fact that he found it much harder to correct people who already knew how to dance than to teach people to dance from scratch.  Those bad habits had already become ingrained into the person's physiology and he found it hard work to get them out of those habits. (OK, so yes, he was talking about me!) 

6 Tips for Making Decisions

Decision making starts the moment you wake up! Whether you’ll get out of bed immediately or stay a bit longer.  What you’re going to wear.  What you’re going to eat for breakfast or perhaps deciding if you have time for breakfast.  Some of these decisions are made automatically without too much thought but people often consult me about decisions they are finding hard to make.  One client was recently struggling with a difficult decision about whether to have a medical test on her unborn baby with all its possible consequences, and it brought to mind some of the things I’ve learned about decision making. 

What are we missing?

I've just received this thought provoking email - the content of which is true.It give us some great questions to ask ourselves. Washington, DC Metro Station on a cold January morning in 2007. The man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time approx. 2 thousand people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After 3 minutes a middle aged man noticed there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried to meet his schedule.
