Comfort and Discomfort

There are places and times in our lives where it pays us to create comfort and discomfort. Not necessarily at the same time, though I don’t rule that out. It’s the juxtaposition that’s telling. In order to do my best work of any description, I need to be comfortable. Physically comfortable. I work at home so my home must feel supportive to me in every way. Emotionally and spiritually I want it to be nurturing and a sanctuary, a place of safety. With all mod cons! Practically I want my office to be warm and yet have fresh air. I […]

In The Olympics of Life, I Want a Coach

I wish I could take credit for the piece of writing I am going to share with you today. I didn’t write it, no. But I sure as hell try to live by it. This article by Mary Schmich was published in the Chicago Tribune on 18th February 1998: “I want a coach. Not a coach as in Cinderella’s renovated pumpkin. Not a Coach as in a pricey shoulder bag. I want a coach like an Olympic coach. I want a coach to tune me up and calm me down, a coach to sigh for me and cry for me, a […]

The Tyranny of the To Do List – and the Antidote

While I was doing something else all day yesterday, a client emailed me in a panic. Her email was entitled “intense need for help!” Since I didn’t get to her email until close of play I was exhausted by the time I read it and, if I hadn’t been already, I certainly would have been after I’d read it. You know you get those sorts of emails sometimes where you can feel the emotion in the words and even between the words? This was one of those. My correspondent successfully communicated her rising panic that there was so much going […]

Rod Stewart, My Brother and Me

As listeners to one of the festive episodes of the podcast will know, Rod Stewart is my brother’s favourite singer and he (my bro) takes much stick in my family for being stuck in his heyday musically, and stuck in Rod’s heyday too. Rod is famous for not wanting to talk about it. My brother too, except under certain circumstances which you can never completely predict although, after all these years, I can tell you when it’s odds on. Nevertheless he would be the first to say he likes to keep us in anticipation, on our toes. He wouldn’t want […]

One Thing: Making Changes in Our Daily Lives

In the run up to my 60th birthday, an event about which I was ambivalent, and after a winter during which I had felt meh at best, I suddenly re-connected with some of the old Judith. I found the strength and the wherewithal to get some stuff done, stuff which made me feel better about myself and created energy for more good things to show up in my world. I called the gardener and got him to come around and make my outside space look great, busting the toleration of looking out of my office window and being depressed by […]

Is It Silly or Unrealistic to Think You Can Create a Living Doing What You Love?

Is it silly or unrealistic to think you can create a living doing what you love? The first ebook I ever wrote was called Creating a Business to Love. But, of late, my clients are saying they don’t necessarily want to create a business, more that they want to create an income doing what they love. The times they are a-changing. And – frankly – I agree with them. I don’t want to create a business anymore either. I’m sure that’s no accident that I am attracting like minds. Today I have enjoyed an email correspondence with a client about […]
