Yes You Can.

Obstacles are things that a person sees when he takes his eyes off the goal. Mahatma Gandhi

In our world of constant change, in spite of the seemingly endless list of challenges we all face daily, there remains a community of accomplished men and women who, regardless of where they currently are on their journey or their life situation, are not content to rest on their laurels.

Whatever life throws at them they bravely continue to reach out, looking for more. Saying yes when the majority says no.

Always up to the challenge, determined to stay relevant, they are willing to do the work, to be the very best  of themselves and make sure they catch the next train before it pulls out of the station.

In the COVID-19 era, for some, that may mean sharpening their skills and stepping up their current game. For others, it could well involve reimagining themselves and setting out in a new direction.

The workplace is no longer the way it used to be. The very idea of work is changing. There is no safe middle ground.

Life is complicated. Living well doesn’t just happen. You need character, courage, alertness, determination and unwavering belief in yourself. Those attitudes and values have seen you through tough times before – and they will this time. too.

The Magic of Creative Thinking

Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative place where no one else has ever been. Alan Alda.


We hear about it everyday. Creative thinking. It’s the magic elixir to improve our lives and take us to new heights, but what exactly is creativity?

Creativity is an energy that that works in that ‘middle space’ when you are at your best, listening to your right brain intuition, following a hunch about a new idea… then filtering it through your left brain smarts and experiences to effectively make the best choices and bring your new goal or objective to fruition.

How can you foster creative ideas? There’s no one secret potions. Ideas come to people at all times of the day and night and in different places…. at four in the morning, perhaps, or while driving on the highway and, in my favourite, standing in the shower.

Whenever and wherever it happens, at some moment, after you have been mulling things over for a while, something clicks in your mind and you suddenly just know.

That’s the magic of creative thinking.
