What we put in matters. So, if you want to see the magic happen, choose to do the challenging, difficult, scary, stinky or unknown things with the same energy, willingness and enthusiasm you bring to doing the fun, easy, simple things in life.
When we give more than we expect in return, the upside is that we get lucky. To find out more, head on over to Do Contribute to read “What we put in“.
What goodness are you forgetting to add to your daily tasks and activities?
It is far better for us (and more realistic) than striving for the elusive work/life balance.
In episode 11, I reconnect with my inner Madonna and use a choice word to share my opinion on the hype around the elusive goal of creating “balance”. Sensitive viewers cover your ears, or if you’re ready to take charge, then join me in creating a new movement!

When we rush things or push too hard to make something happen the way we want it to, very often nothing (or something we don’t want) happens.
Why? Because we don’t leave enough space for things to unfold in a way that might be better. Because we aren’t being aware of the opportunities in our present that can positively shape the direction of that future.
“Boy, I hurried… I hurried for a long time. I’m sorry I did. All the time you’re hurrying, you’re not really as aware as you should be. You’re trying to make things happen instead of just letting it happen. You follow me?” ~ Bob Dylan
I’m a firm believer in making plans, setting goals and doing what needs doing. But when we’re trying too hard to reach that future place in a rush, without leaving a little wriggle room for opportunity, then we’re just like an impatient lion tamer. Cracking the whip without thinking about the consequences.
Making space in your life to let things unfold can mean a life that is more friendly than ferocious. Which would you prefer?
