“Doubt can only be removed by action.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Last Wednesday, I had the opportunity to speak in front of over 3,000 people at The Pendulum
Summit in Dublin – labelled as the world’s leading business and self-empowerment gathering.
3 years ago, the first one took place with a few hundred leaders.
It was the brain-child of Frankie Sheahan, a former Irish rugby international.
It has taken real bravery and courage not just to start it but to keep it going, and continue to grow
the numbers (they had about 6,500 people attend over 2 days). The headline speakers included
Robin Sharma and Jack Canfield.
I know from speaking to Frankie that his journey has not been a straight line and has had plenty
of ups and downs. But that’s the point of an adventure…
And as I sat at a dinner table last Tuesday on the opening night of Pendulum, surrounded by
business leaders and the Irish Prime Minister (An Taoiseach), I was reminded of the power of
setting an intention and then being relentless in taking action.
We can all make amazing things happen. Yet often we look at others and think that they’re the
only ones who can.
Doubt is present for everyone, even the ‘best’, but we have to learn to master our minds and just
take action anyway.
What is your ‘Summit’? i.e. The thing you dream of but perhaps are afraid of…
A possible new venture…
A new job or change in career…
A new relationship or a change in one….
A fresh new start…
Pick the area you most want to change and start by asking some questions:
What’s the one thing I can do to move things forward this week?
Who can I talk to, to help?
Where can I learn more about how to achieve my outcome?
Why do I feel like I want this change?
Then take some action.
2017 can be a kick-ass year for you.
But we have to be open to asking questions of ourselves and then taking action on the answers.
ps – Last call for business owners and self-employed people re my 1 day BluePrint
Business workshop this Friday. This is 1 day that will help you ask and answer a lot of great
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.

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
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.
More information and booking here.
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.
