I’m starting to get a little nervous. In less than 11 weeks I’ll be running my first marathon, and my training hasn’t been going to plan recently.

Postive Thinking Is Out Of Fashion

April 1, 2014

We all know we need to quash negative thinking and be as positive as possible. It’s a nice idea, but often easier said than done. Being positive has huge benefits but when the proverbial hits the fan it can be really tough to remain upbeat, and even trickier to still get the important stuff done when you’re feeling down. So instead of trying to be more positive more of the time, I want to introduce you to the new kid on the block when it comes to thinking, and one you’d be wise to make your friend if you want to remain productive even when you mood tries to dictate otherwise…

Are You Guilty Of Groupthink?

February 18, 2014

Having the ability to be creative and courageous in the work place are attributes admired by many. Being able to stand up for what you think and go against the grain can be challenging, which is why it’s so easy to fall into the trap of being a group thinker, agreeing with the majority just to save the peace or keep the important people happy.
