Flow is Good

Three weeks after leaving the corporate life for good to be a coach and consultant, I’m finding that time is going faster than it used to when I sat in a cubicle next to people whos weeks were filled with sending and reading emails and not much else.

Some people call the state of mind when you are so engrossed in what you are doing that time flies (or even stands still) – FLOW.  Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is the Hungarian-American psychologist that I mention in this episode.  His book Flow is worth a read. You could get it from Amazon here ..


Growth Mindset Is Best

Don’t Incubate Your Ideas – Let Them Hatch

Do you have some ideas that are in your head, but the conditions aren’t right for incubation? The conditions will never be perfect for you to follow your dreams, but you can make the choice to get these ideas out of your head and into action… just go for it!!

Show Up For Success

Growing Something From Nothing

Hello Freedom Engineers!

Recently I spent some time with friends at my friend’s holiday house in the bush (Australian term!)…  I saw some beautiful gum trees growing in very rocky conditions, devoid of much soil, if any at all….

It made me think how often we wait for conditions to be perfect (or better than they are) before we get started on our projects, businesses, dreams, plans etc….

Truth is, the conditions may never be perfect, in fact, probably won’t ever be perfect but amazing things can be grown from nothing and the end result is often beautiful and amazing…

Like a stoic gum tree that plants its seed and grows roots in the rocky ground, why don’t you try to start with one piece of the puzzle instead of waiting for all the pieces to be put on the table!

Get at it…. the time may be right after all…

#30 Move Forward With Conviction

“I have learned that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavours to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours” – Henry David Thoreau
