As I continue to observe the world around me, I can’t help but notice the increasing sense of urgency and pace evident in everything we do. Traffic is getting worse, everyone’s life is so “hectic” and the simple act of waiting in a queue for an extra few seconds seems an arduous task. We seem to be caught in a strong current dragging us NOWHERE fast!

It’s time to take a step back and blend the old with the new. By the “old” I of course mean “ancient wisdom”. Pause, take a breath, and LIVE the moment. The journey is far more rewarding than the destination – let’s not miss it!

Let the water boil..

OK I borrowed that phrase from Chin-Ning Chu - another one of my favourite writers. Why? Because I love her very unique blend of business savvy and spirituality.

Sometimes you just have to know when to ease your grip and "let the water boil". Sometimes the more you push forward the more your customers and results push back!

Here are some easy strategies for keeping you "in balance":

- Self-awareness is crucial!
- "Replace fear of the unknown with curiosity" Unknown
- Surround yourself with those that you admire, those that support you and those from whom you would like to learn
- Read a couple of pages from your favourite self-development or business author/mentor
- Listen to a podcast or audiobook
- Take a drive, go for a walk
- Keep your desks, files and brains as lean as possible
- Exercise, practice yoga or meditate
- Try to really get to know your customers/colleagues
- Systemise as much as you can
- Express creativity in another form
- Embrace the fact that you need to work on your mindset DAILY. Success will then be an unconscious bi-product
