If you can´t do it today – do it tomorrow!
Ouch, it only took 5 days for me to get out of track from the 100 blog challenge I started on March 1. Sad isn´t it? Both yes and no!
I sat in my office late last night and was about to write something – no – anything. Then I thought – who wants to read anything? Nobody! If you dont have a true message you might as well be quiet, right. And that is part of todays message. If you dont have anything to say – dont say it. Continue reading
Digital world workplace or traditional workplace?
Does the leaders in a digitalworld have other challenges than in a traditional workplace? Of course! Keeping track of employees that are not physically present demands other skills than dealing with the ones inhouse. And of course a lot of other things are different too. Continue reading
Do you too have those over-filled days sometimes?
I had one today. It was a day of client work – just a little bit too tight scedule. I had no break between the clients to relax and write down my notes – it was just one after the other. When the last client left the office I knew I had a lot of administrative work to do. Do you know what I did? Continue reading
21 Habits of Happy People!
Today I stumbled over a very good article – or rather list – over habits that make/keep you happy.
Many people say that they are not happy because of …….. and they come up with a long list of things they dont have or a list of people that have done – or not done – things that prevent them from being happy. Continue reading
Today is the first day of the next 100 – want to come along on this journey?
Haven´t been blogging for several months. Have been thinking about it – but thinking does not make any results. So when I saw this challenge I just had to get in. 100 days is 3 months! Many days to fill with content. But when it comes to health and stress management the things to write about are endless. Continue reading
On how to do good for others!
By saying “Help yourself first” I don’t mean for you to take the first serving at dinner meetings or to be first in line to things. I mean that in order to do good for others you have to strengthen yourself first. It is like on the airplanes where you in case of emergency are told to put on your own oxygen mask before you try to help anyone else – even though it might feel like you should save your child/relative/friend/workmate first. Helping others first may be counterproductive. Continue reading
Inspiration for more focus at work!
Last week I attended a big meeting about business growth, Accelerate, in Chicago. It was hosted by Eben Pagan, known to be a successful businessman. The whole thing was a blast and I got to connect with so many exciting people. I hope to be able to introduce some of them to you later on. One thing that made me very happy was that Eben Pagan repeatedly came back to the fact that you have to deal with your mind and body to reduce stress to be able to get the best out of you. He gave us this short exercise: Continue reading
Physical activity is the #1 “pill” for many health issues!
I listened to a really good video-blog the other day. It was Jeff Walker, Internet Marketing TM, who had a post about “How to stay Centered and Productive”. Interestingly enough he didn’t talk about having structure in work or a clean desktop or other workplace related issues. He talked about my subject – take a walk, run, go to the gym and other physical activity and combining it with meditation and forgiveness to yourself for not always being at the top. This led my thoughts to the fact that health is the basis of everything and I started thinking about what physical activity more is good for. Continue reading
“First thing First”
This is my first blog-post in a long time. You see, life got in-between. Early in 2013 I decided to focus on writing on my up-coming book and the blogging was a bit down-prioritized. I didn’t mean to stop altogether but just not focus on it. But I got more and more stressed, there was just not enough time. Just like you I am a business leader wanting to do my best and I ended up in the situation most of my clients are in when they seek my help: Stressed out. At this point a new catastrophe hits me. My 87 year old mother falls badly when she is doing such a banal thing as throwing away her garbage and she gets severely injured. Continue reading
