If you’ve missed any of the posts in this new series then don’t panic – you can catch up by clicking the links below:

·         Week 1

·         Week 2

·         Week 3

·         Week 4

As promised, I will post additional questions for you to answer every Monday. You might want to gather them all together like a personal workbook, or just pop in and out to answer the questions that appeal to you.

Don’t think too hard about each question, just go with the first thing that pops into your head. Some questions will amuse you, others will test your boundaries, but all of them will bring about a sense of fulfilment.

Each week I’ll share the link to the previous questions so you can collect them as you go and don’t have to worry if you miss a week. They may seem random in their order, but if you do choose to follow the entire series, then you’ll hopefully get a fully rounded picture of your life, goals, and aspirations for a fulfilling future.

Grab a notebook, your journal, or open a new word document and record your answers so you can refer to them when needed. This week I want you to think about your time spent online.

Questions for week #5:

  1. How long do you spend online every day?
  1. How often do you use social media?
  2. If you set aside time for a social media break, what would you miss?
  3. What could you do instead if you weren’t online?

Join me next Monday for more questions.

As always, your responses can be as private or as public as you choose. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments below. If you’d rather not, then simply share how you find the selection of questions, if you can answer them easily or if you struggled, and what you have chosen to do with the answers that came up for you if anything.

How To Create a More Fulfilling Future – Blog Series

NEW BLOG SERIES: How to create a more fulfilling future.

How To Create a More Fulfilling FutureWith the launch of my new book, How I Motivated Myself to Succeed, on the horizon, I thought it was the perfect time to begin my new blog series: Creating a more fulfilling future.

I’m a great believer in being in control of your own destiny, and so I include various exercises in the book to help my readers sort through their thoughts. I wanted to include a series of thought-provoking questions here on my blog to complement the book.

Don’t think too hard about each question, just go with the first thing that pops into your head. Some questions will amuse you, others will test your boundaries, but all of them will bring about a sense of fulfilment that you can carry forward.

Every Monday, for the next ten weeks, I will post additional questions for you to answer. You might want to gather them all together like a personal workbook, or just pop in and out to answer the questions that appeal to you.

Each week I’ll share the link to the previous questions so you can collect them as you go and don’t have to worry if you miss a week. They may seem random in their order, but if you do choose to follow the entire series, then you’ll hopefully get a fully rounded picture of your life, goals, and aspirations for a fulfilling future.

Grab a notebook, your journal, or open a new word document and record your answers so you can refer to them when needed.

Questions for week #1:

  1. What would you do if you were brave enough?
  2. What have you done that you never thought you would/could?
  3. Describe a spontaneous action that led to something incredible.
  4. What challenges are you ready to face?

Join me next Monday for more questions.

As always, your responses can be as private or as public as you choose. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments below. If you’d rather not, then simply share how you find the selection of questions, if you can answer them easily or if you struggled, and what you have chosen to do with the answers that came up for you if anything.

Adding @Zentangle to Your Bullet Journals #Arts #Crafts

zentangleI’m a sucker for anything creative and was instantly attracted to the recent blog series posted by Suzie Speaks about Bullet Journals. If you missed these posts then take a look HERE. I haven’t gone to the artistic extremes that Suzie has, but I did dabble with my notebook, pens, and washi tape over the weekend!

Enjoying a creative time out reminded me of a blog post I wrote back in 2013 when I took part in my year-long resolution challenge.

As part of my ‘Do Something Creative’ month I had a doodle fest, using the American Zentangle method which is a creative art form where all you need is paper, pencil and a pen. I thought this format would be a perfect accompaniment to any bullet journal so here’s that post again.

Don’t panic if you can’t draw or paint, if you’ve never used acrylics or pastels or if you think a canvas is something you sleep under – which of course it is but that’s for another blog post! Read more

5 Top Tips for Positive Networking #SmallBusiness #Goals

Top 5 Tips for Small Business NetworkingNetworking is a relatively new thing for me. When I ran my holistic health business, I worked five days and two evenings a week, so any spare time I had I divided between family, friends, and my writing. Attending any of the networking groups in my local area was an impossibility. Once I closed that business and focused on my books and blog content I discovered a necessity to get out from the home office and speak to another human being.

Working from home, in any capacity, has a host of benefits, from holding a conference call in your pyjamas, to saving hours on a long commute. Many mums are starting small businesses from their kitchen table to enable them to keep childcare costs to a minimum and reap the advantages of being around for their child’s early years.

With this influx of small businesses, the need for friendly and supportive networking groups is more important than ever. Women empower women; it’s a beautiful thing to witness and an even more satisfying thing to do, or indeed, receive. Read more
