Everything we do, sports included, is 90% mental. In fact, saying that sports is 90% mental might be one of the most overused clichés.

Why is it so Difficult to Adapt to Change in Business?

The great industrialist Henry Ford once said “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” For all intents and purposes, he may or may not have been referring to the concept of change and the importance of it.

Without it, there is a chance that you will not be able to maximize your performance and optimize your productivity.

5 Killer Reasons For Quitting The Day Job

I was keeping a list of the reasons I could use to justify handing my notice in. It included such gems as one of the office toilets getting regularly blocked (#13) and the lack of decaf coffee available in floor 2 drinks machine (#9). It was quite a long list but I never used it.

Everything from the wrong setting on the air-con (#3) to not being ale to wear shorts on dress down Fridays (#16). And none of those times of things, however irritating or demonstrative of some organisational failing, are really good […]

Top 10 Reasons It Might Be Time to Quit

Being a Life Coach it was difficult to support and condone quitting. It felt like it must go against some sort of coach’s ethics or something. Coaching is about encouraging the commitment towards the final goal. It’s about giving your clients or your team the passion and inspiration to keep going and to never give up. We are always told that to quit is like admitting you failed at something. But then I realized the upside to being a quitter and now I’m proud to now call myself a quitter.

If Money could buy Happiness, You won’t get enough Bang for Your Buck

As human beings, we oftentimes dwell too much on the unanswerable question “Can money buy happiness?” Indeed, it is an age-old question and yet so many of us have defined our happiness by the amount of assets and wealth that we have. It’s that many individuals attain more wealth over time and get richer in the process.
