Another flying experience

Are you moving in the right direction? As you look back and see where you have come from, how happy are you with the progress you are making?A few weeks ago I had a minor rant about flying and how I dealt with the experience and my attendant emotions. Last week I...

Still Reacting

I was supposed to have a meeting yesterday but it didn't happen. I neglected to check that it was still on, and the person I was meeting neglected to show up. I reacted, but unlike my BA angriness (airline not Baracus, see previous blogpost), I was simply a little...

Thoughts Feelings Generated

On Saturday, two incidents made me stop and take note of my feelings and how appropriately I was dealing with them.  I am normally a great exponent of looking for, and celebrating, the good bits of life, however infrequently they might present themselves, and revel in...

Murder Promotes Growth

I was watching Derren Brown's show last week in which he was experimenting with social compliance. Basically he used people's willingness to go along with things to get them to a point where they chose (but in an inner-conflicted way) to push someone to their death....

The Blame Game

Listening to the news last week, I was sadly reminded of some of the stuff that I teach the students in the xpand Life College. There are people suggesting that the government or David Cameron himself should be doing more for the people who witnessed the Tunisia...

Achievements – Getting Started to Boost Your Mojo

  Achievements are another part of our Mojo, as defined by Marshall Goldsmith's book. They affect how we think of ourselves, how other people see us, and so are knitted into our identity. What is the next big thing you want to achieve and is it so big that you...
