EP137 | Encore: rest & play as a work strategy

Economists are describing this year as the The Great Reset and the New Normal. And I believe it’s a great reset in many ways - we don’t want to go back to how we worked. We want to lead our time differently.

So as we are approaching my first online weekend retreat version of The Productivity cure... I thought I’d do an encore version of some of the most popular episodes I’ve done related to productivity.

This particular episode is about making rest and play an important part of our work and business strategy. Aaahhhh. Grab a drink, go find a quiet spot, or take yourself for a walk and listen.

EP136 | What I'm resetting In the Great Reset

Following on from yesterday's episode, I'm chatting about three areas or trends that are being reset in The Great Reset of 2020:
- Why 'I am allowed' is the new 'I am enough'
- New Leadership isn't about superior positioning or 'a higher conversation'. 
- Capacity, not mindset, is the solution.

EP135 | What inspires you? Here's my list.

I have to admit I’ve been pretty chilled the last couple of months. My body is refusing to work the way I’ve done for years. And The Great Reset of 2020 is becoming a very personal great reset.

I am, or were, very driven. Back in January I even set an ambitious task of doing a daily podcast. But I’ve slowed down. And it feels great. 

But it took a few weeks to process a bit of guilt and self judgement. A few weeks of RESETTING. Oh, don’t get me wrong, my core personality is still there. My core driver is still Vision (because I’m a VisionMaker WowArchetype)

But this reset is sharpening that vision. And the method to that vision isn’t hijacking my nervous system anymore. (Which, btw, goes to prove even more that your wow archetype can evolve, but that’s a discussion for another time!)

All week I’m sharing what makes me tick. And One of the things that is sharpening is about what really matters to me. So here goes… they...

EP134 | Woes & Wows (aka are you afraid of the dark?)

'Change your mindset' and 'Renew your thinking' sounds like great advice. But is it? In this episode I challenge the self-help industry's focus on 'being positive' and 'being grateful'. Is it really as helpful, and why doesn't it always work?  Part of my Great Reset series of episodes.

EP131 | Why Productivity Tools Don't Work - with Jo Bendle

What happens when you outgrow your goals? In this episode Jo Bendle shares her 'what next' after seeing her dream of successful location independent dream come true. A lively chat about about why what we've been taught about productivity doesn't work, the power of mindset work and how to have clarity. This episode is a smorgasbord of ah-ha's.

The official bit:
Jo is a Productivity + Empowerment Coach helping female business owners do more, be more and have more while working less. She helps women navigate the mindset struggles that hold them back from living a bigger life, hook into their future vision and equip them with the productivity tools they need to get there.

Highlights:
"I knew very very clearly that this wasn't what I was meant to be doing but it was a stepping stone... I share that because I wish people would give themselves permission to see where it (life) takes them."

"You don't HAVE to have all the clarity at the start!"

"For me there is no point giving them masculine...
