1 Activity To Do

At Least 3 times each day this week I want you to PAUSE.

Just stop!

Pause and be mindful of what you think and feel. Practice doing this and stay with it for 3 minutes. If and when you notice your heart rate increasing, stay with the pause and consider your response. How could you be most impactful with your response?  Capture your experiences and resulting actions in your reflective log. 


1 Question For You

There’s a saying you have seven seconds to make a first impression…well, it’s actually 3 seconds and it’s primarily non-verbal.

 Presence is something we can develop. Make a positive first impression.

 At the beginning of each day this week I would like you to ask yourself…

 How do I want to show up and be seen today?

 At the end of the day, reflect on the previous question and ask yourself…

 How did I show up and how do I know?

 (I must acknowledge Demy D for the fabulous conversation we had related to Presence and I look forward to many more – thanks!)


1 Idea To Consider

Take some time to consider your life as ‘Chapters’.

What chapter are you currently in and writing as you read this? What chapter may come next and what would its title be?

Where are you in ‘your story’? If you are in control of writing your story, then what would you like the next few pages to say?

Lastly, what would your friends and colleagues say about your current chapter (or crucially, what would you like them to say?)

(A huge thanks to Andy F for being the stimulus for this ‘idea to consider’ as he moves to the next chapter in his ‘story’.)
