“You’ll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart.”
It’s not clear yet when George Michael’s funeral will be but his passing is the loss of another
Like us all he had his challenges, but what has emerged since his death are stories of
immense generosity and love. This was a man who signed off the royalties to the massive
hit Careless Whisper so that his friend Andrew Ridgeley would always have an income.
At this time of year, many people are very intent on setting goals for the year ahead (although
most have fallen by the way-side already…).
And while that’s useful most of the time, those goals are often set from the head only – which
means it looks at what it thinks is best based on the past, our ego and perhaps societal
expectations in terms of ‘keeping up with the Jones’.’
If we’re looking to create better businesses, careers and lives, we need to allow ourselves to
listen to our heart.
The irony is that in the ‘macho’ business or sporting world, that’s often seen as something
The reality is that is takes infinitely more bravery to listen to you heart and then act on
what it says. The heart is in tune with what’s best for you and usually impacts on
purpose, happiness, fulfilment, self-expression and serving others. The things most
people are craving now more than ever.
That’s what real change is about and that’s where your better future lies.
It’s not that we ignore our head, it’s more being informed by our heart as well.
3 Questions to access the heart:
1. What would I love to do if I didn’t care what anyone else really thought?
And what steps can I take in that direction over the next week? Month? Quarter?
2. What do I feel life is asking of me now?
3. Who am I now and what changes do I feel I’d like to make?
Don’t worry about getting too ‘touchy-feely’. The head will poke itself back in…
Q1 2017 workshops/training that may be of interest to you or people you know:
1. BluePrint Business 2017 (In Person Workshop)
If you can do it, attending an actual workshop always gives you a lot extra from the same
content. If you’re self-employed or are a business owner, this is a hugely powerful day to step
back, get clarity and hear ideas from other like minded people from a range of different
industries. This year the 1 day workshop will run on Friday 20th January in Dublin.
Fee: €295 ex.Vat Book here.
2. Rock Your Work And Have A Life!
Most people are struggling with the speed of change, the resulting uncertainty and the
pressures of modern day living and working.
Over the past 12 months I’ve had the opportunity to work with more people in improving
their results in their careers, businesses, teams and personal lives.
I am more convinced than ever that there are certain principles which will guarantee you
better results in your chosen field – but only when you consistently do them.
And therein lies the rub. Knowing it is not the same as really doing it. Doing the right things
consistently is the key to getting seriously better.
But what are the right things?
If you’re interested in dipping your toe in the water with some of my work, I’d recommend
In it I take you through the key principles of success in The Digital Age and best of all, I put
you through a 4 week ‘hands-on’ process to help you cultivate new habits.
Here’s what a recent participant said about TimeShift:
“This training helped to bring real clarity to my way of working. It helped to sharpen my
thinking. I’d estimate a 50% improvement on ability to get more of what matters done and
60% improvement in my clarity of mind. Other areas that benefitted were my sleep, energy
and communication with my team”. – Bill Walsh, CEO, Aspire (Finalist Entrepreneur Of
The Year 2014)
It’s not Time Management. That’s over.
It’s a paradigm shift in how you see your life and time.
It’s a blend of Life, Mind and Results Management. If you’re looking to shift gears in 2017,
this course will really make a difference.
Only 1 workshop during Q1 – Starts 31st January in Dublin.

If you have a team, TimeShift could be the perfect training to do together. Get over the hassle
of trying to introduce new mindsets, language and understanding in 1 go. A few companies
used it exactly for that in 2016 with great results. It’s also a great team bonding experience.
Note: Both of these workshops can be done in sequence and many who do get almost
double the effect.
