What’s next on the agenda? What do you continue to bump?

There are any number of reasons why we procrastinate. They range from avoiding negative feelings and fear of failure to perfectionism. In the words of Tim Urban, long term procrastination can make you feel like a spectator in your own life.

The secret to confidence: Life is one big improvisation!

Get committed

This is the subtle art of acting “As if”. It’s not about faking it, it’s the art of feeling your way into something new, and that is only ever going to work if you are committed to it.

Let’s talk Confidence: It’s a muscle worth building

We all have an idea of what it is to be confident and we recognise it when we see it or hear it: Confidence is being certain about the truth of something or a self-assurance of one’s own abilities or qualities; it’s the belief that we can rely on or have faith in someone or something and helps you gain credibility, make good lasting first impressions and supports you in dealing with pressure and meeting life head-on.
