Do you like what you do?

We are all born to fulfil a purpose, have you found yours? I’m 100% subscribed to the principle that we are all born to fulfil a purpose. Even if we think that we don’t have a purpose, our purpose in this instance is to find our purpose and then act upon it in order to serve others.   Some people believe that they have the wrong job when in fact they might just be in the wrong role. Sometimes all it takes is putting yourself forward for a project that takes advantage of your natural strengths.   When you get to use your strengths...

Failure is an option!

Failure is an option!

The memorable phrase that came from NASA “Failure is not an option” has given people the wrong idea about the positive aspects of failure. One afternoon, when my daughter was about eight years of age, she came into my studio with a white piece of paper and a word written in bold, big letters across the entire width of the paper. The word was F.A.I.L. With a cheeky grin on her face, she asked me, “Dad, do you know what FAIL means?” Sensing that she was up to something, I replied, “You tell me.” With...

Do we really need to be so busy?

Do we really need to be so busy?

We have more control over our workload than we think we do. A while back I came to a simple yet powerful realisation: the more I hurried, the less I got done. And to top it all off, the end result was not what I had envisioned in the first place. I decided that it was time to focus on what was really important and to allocate the time it required to do it well. I had to make many “sacrifices”, like saying no to projects, ideas, proposals and requests for my time in many different ways. Although I still need to keep myself in check to make...

How can you express solidarity?

How can you express solidarity?

Increase your sense of belonging and fulfilment through acts of solidarity As I was driving my daughter to school this morning, she asked me “Dad, what does ‘solidarity’ actually mean”. Given the current context, I wasn’t surprised that this word had been lingering in her mind. We talked about supporting people, shared values, togetherness, feelings, compassion and the many ways in which solidarity can be expressed. As with many things, there is a dark and an enlightened side even in gestures of solidarity. Quite frankly, what really matters...

Why I am thankful that my dishwasher broke

Why I am thankful that my dishwasher broke

The unexpected joy that derived from a trusted broken appliance This is a strange thing to admit, but I never thought that a broken dishwasher could give me so much. Allow me to explain. A few weeks ago, when I realised that my dishwasher forced itself to a well-deserved retirement (after many years of operational excellence I have to admit), frankly, I was a bit annoyed, to say the least. I knew getting a replacement in the present context was going to be a bit of a challenge (and it was). My first thought was, “what a drag…washing dishes...

The emotion and action that will give you instant fulfilment

The emotion and action that will give you instant fulfilment

How simple acts of gratitude will trigger persistent feelings of pleasure and wellbeing. Gratitude is not just an emotion or an attitude. Gratitude is an intentional act to recognise the positive aspects of our lives and the things that bring us joy and fulfilment. Gratitude does not have to be reserved for the big events of our lives, like “I’m grateful for the love of my partner”, or “I’m grateful for being able to provide for my family”. Gratitude can be expressed for even the smallest of events “I’m grateful for the comforting feeling of...

How to get rid of the toxicity of resentment

An effective way to help you move from resentment to liberation Are you feeling bitter about having been treated unfairly? Are you still annoyed with someone for what this person said or did? Resentment is one of those difficult or unpleasant feelings which, if left unchecked, could do us more harm than good. As humans, we are emotional beings by nature. Emotions are part of the human dynamic, so if we ever feel resentful, we should not feel guilt or be too hard on ourselves.   What creates the damage, however, is holding on to resentment....

Why are we so attracted to bad news?

Why are we so attracted to bad news?

The reason why we look for negative views over transformative stories I’m still dumbfounded by the minuscule focus that has been given to one of the most important topics that should be on everyone’s mind: How to strengthen our immune response. Our attention is unfortunately being bombarded with information that promotes hysteria. The media is cleverly exploiting our genetically hardwire “negative bias”. For as long as we have existed, our tendency has been to pay more attention to threats (and dwell on these events)...

Can you tell the difference between a leader and a manager?

Can you tell the difference between a leader and a manager?

Vulnerability and empathy, the trademarks of natural leaders. Lately, it has become easier to discern leaders at heart from those who are merely bosses. It’s been fascinating to witness how true leaders are exhibiting the qualities that make them so effective at leading: vulnerability and empathy. Obviously, team members need guidance on how to work in this new environment, but the focus on the “how” should not preclude the time that should be spent in allowing them to express how they truly feel. An emotion that is expressed, heard and...

The Gift of the Quarrantine

Practical ways of deepening the connection with your child during confinement For many of the road warriors out there like myself who spend a significant amount of time travelling for business, having been confined in my home for weeks has been an unusual experience. But quite early on during the lockdown, the words of the wizard Gandalf the Grey echoed in my mind: “All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you”. One aspect that I have enjoyed the most during this quarantine is connecting with my children at a much...
