The Very Busy Person’s Action Plan (No. 3)

3. Action planning to keep you on track: 24/07/2014 (Hanna’s Graduation, yes it's still the same morning!) Last time I talked to you about ensuring you factor in the ‘values’ in order to help you keep to your action planning. If your action plan does not reflect your values stuff and time is not allocated to this, it quite simply will not work because it does not motivate you. The second thing your action plan should be doing is keeping...

The Very busy Person’s Action Plan (No.2)

  2. Action Planning...Getting realistic 24/07/2014  05.45 am (Graduation Day, yes, still an ungodly hour but I thought I’d get this down whilst it’s fresh in my mind) Last time  I broached the subject of action planning and its potential downfall…I also left you with a few questions…did you get your answers? Here they are again, just in case: Do you have an Action Plan? If not, how do you prioritise daily, weekly, monthly and into the future? If you...

1. The very busy person’s action plan…and its potential downfall! 5.23am 24 July 2014 ( Hanna’s Graduation day!!)

I was rushing around...

Did you know… you have between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day? An NLP fact… fascinating isn’t it?

Did you know…you have between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day…fascinating isn’t it?   [caption id="attachment_2127" align="aligncenter" width="196"] NLP. The power of thought[/caption]   It’s also a phenomenal number of thoughts to be having; however, our minds are so clever that they ‘filter’ these thoughts so that only the important ones are actually retained by us. This is known as DDG in NLP: Deleting, distorting and generalising. Why does our amazing mind do that? Well simply because we really couldn’t...

Get Your NLP RAS on!

Get your RAS on! I guess I now need to explain what I mean by that statement. It's a term used in NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) As mentioned in a couple of my motivational emails; our minds are bombarded with a huge amount of information daily. It’s your RAS (Reticular Activating System) which sorts through all this information for you so you aren’t overwhelmed, it’s the filter I mentioned. Your RAS sifts through and filters sensory information and stores it in...
