The Ultimate Goal To Pursue

All this talk of reflection, goals and meaning over this month of January caused my heart to stir with expectation at the possibilities ahead for this year. I know this is not always the case for everyone – please don’t get discouraged if you are feeling a little less than goal focused at the moment.  I am a firm believer of listening to our hearts and allowing time to process if not ready for something just yet – so no beating yourself up if you need longer before launching into planning some goals for 2016 :).  All this stirring in my

How To Achieve Smarter Goals

2016 The Year Of Smarter Goals    I don’t know anyone who does not want to have a great year ahead – most of us hope and pray for this year in and year out. I know I do! Yet we know there will be many variables to any given year that we can not control. For some, this then means an instant opt into the sit back approach – ” just let the year happen however it turns out” without even a hint of a goal let alone direction to the year.  But the truth is we influence the level

3 Things To Do To Set Meaningful Goals

Setting Goals – you either love it or hate it! The mere mention of new year resolutions sends many people’s eyes rolling! Yet goals, resolutions or whatever you want to call them are an essential life-giving part of creating a purposeful year. To gain and keep a direction in life we need to have some meaningful goals. There is no other way around this!   Without any  goals we just simply drift along.  Sure, we can still achieve a few things, and even get to tick off some things we “hoped” to do this or that year.  But the power of

21 Ways To Keep Christ In Christmas This Year

I love all things Christmas, but increasingly I am wanting to not let it get taken over by commercialism, stress or even seemingly good things that do not bring the true richness of why Christ followers celebrate. There is a need to be intentional as tugging at all our sleeves is a very different message – the message of the world’s perspective on Christmas as being a Holiday celebration only.   I know you are similar to me, you want to keep the CHRIST central to CHRISTMAS   But how do we do this? I have created a list of 21 ways

But the thing is this jolly old ho ho Merry Christmas time of year also holds the potential to be a bit of a frenzy full of expectations and obligations.

Why You Need To Eliminate Tolerations From Life

I once went two years with a broken basket in the corner of the bedroom with things I was going to fix or mend sitting in it.  I did not particularly want it as part of the interior design look of the room but put up with it. In that time I never even once added to it or pulled anything out to fix but had to move it numerous times when it was in the way. Doesn’t seem too big a deal really but along with other tolerations (as there is never just one alone in our life!) this

3 Steps To Discover Priorities

Not so long ago I was sitting at my home office desk staring blankly at the computer, my cold cup of tea and half-eaten lunch to the left and a whiteboard with a hundred and one to do priorities to the right. One glance at the magnitude of that was enough to send me running for cover in another room. I thought I knew my priorities after all that’s why they were on the white board, right? Yet I was not managing and any sane person looking at that list could see how impossible I had made it for myself.
