Monday thought #8: How to improve every day immediately

On many days in our life and work things tend to go wrong. Not our way or simply in the wrong direction. And with it our mood gets worse and everything seems rather negative, nothing seems to go smoothly. 

Crash and burn the day?

That's one possibility.

There is another though - to brighten up the day immediately. Listen in to the (short) podcast to learn the simple but incredibly effective method which only takes a few minutes every day. And is worth every single one of it. 

Have a great week!

Monday thought #7: Is it the truth or just a story?

Monday thought #7: Is it the truth or just a story?
10:53
 

I bet you've experienced something like that:  Maybe someone walks out of a presentation you're giving without an explanation, or someone simply does not show up for a meeting...or a (close) colleague just passes you in the hallway and utterly ignores you - not even saying hi. 

The brain (and the emotions) react very quickly and throw up a story. One that explains what just happened. And hardly ever it is in our favour. Sounds familiar? 

The question is though: is it really the truth? Or maybe just a story?

Listen in to my Monday thoughts where I address:

 - what and why this happens
- the dangers of our stories
- and what's the best way of dealing with it

Have a great week and see you soon.

Monday thought #6: How safe do you feel?

Monday thought #6: How safe do you feel?
15:46
 

Feeling safe is crucial for productivity & creativity (and joy) & the 2 reasons why it can be absent.

How safe do you feel these days? A topic that tends to come up again and again with people I talk to and is being addressed in quite a few companies right now (#psychologicalsafety).

For me, safety is mainly the absence of fear. 

 And let's face it: there are lots of things, situations and people to be afraid of or to worry about. For some people more - for some less. 

Here's my Monday thought where I talk about WHY emotional safety is so crucial, the surprising truth where it starts and comes from (and where not), and the two things that are in the way of creating it sustainably.

 Let me know what you think and if that is something you have experienced (just hit [email protected] and send me your thoughts).

Monday thought #5: Do you love or hate adversities (and why this is even relevant)

 

What? I can't be serious, right?

Who the hell likes adversities?

Well, listen in to learn why and how they can be extremely useful and what kind of human superpower you can develop and practice while experiencing adversities. Extremely powerful how I find. And one that helped me in even seemingly catastrophic situations. 

Enjoy and let me know what other topics you'd like to hear about - just drop me an e-mail to [email protected]

Monday thought #4: The thing that blocks so many of us from good (or better) experiences
12:00
 

Hey, it's Monday again and time for some thoughts for the week. 

This morning I had a chat with my grown-up daughter and we came across the topic of how we often hold ourselves back and are blocked by....stuff we create ourselves. 

Creating an internal resistance, which prevents us from achieving our goals. Or from simply having good experiences or feeling good (isn't that what we all want? The feeling good part?). 

BS - that is what blocks us (and it's not what you think!!)

So, here is

- why our BS (not what you think, I swear!) is the culprit
- a little story that shows what can happen and how reality can change (to the better!) when we shift it

Enjoy!

Monday thought #3: Are you efficient or effective?
8:15
 

Most people I talk to tell me that they have TONS to do. Not just at work, but generally in life...it looks like to-do-lists are endless for most of us and people play catch-up all the time. 

Becoming faster and better in getting through it - and often still don't achieve what they want to, as the days are too short. 

So why is that? In this short podcast I'll explain the major difference between efficient and effective and why we often mix this up.

Monday thought #1: "Look at the big picture in the midst of drama"

Monday thought #1: "Look at the big picture in the midst of drama"

I like starting my weeks with an intention. Or an idea. One that helps me grow or learn, help me feeling better or serves me and my business to progress. 

And the mornings are always the best and most creative time for me. And with morning, I really mean the time after I wake up or do my morning yoga. 

So, I've decided to share those thoughts once a week - or maybe more often, let's see - maybe it supports you too! 

So here we go - the VERY FIRST Monday thought: 

This morning I read a quote on FB which triggered my thoughts:

"The only people who see the big picture....are the ones who get out of the frame".

Huh, that is quite right. Being a "big-picture-person" myself I totally get that. And with that thought came the next.

When in the middle of a conflict, drama, difficult situation it helps to take a step back and look at the big picture.

I promise your perspective will shift immediately! And so does the feeling and the subsequent action about the...
