Tired of thinking about work whilst on holiday?

For many of us, the summer holidays can’t come soon enough.  And yet you know that there’s a huge amount to be done before you leave for your much-needed break…. And much as you need to totally relax when you’re away, you just KNOW that there will be things you ‘have’ to deal with from your sunbed, mountain or lake…..

You know what?  It really doesn’t have to be this way.

We often talk about Self Limiting Beliefs, old stories or out-of-date scripts  – these can keep us stuck, make us feel helpless or inadequate and  frustrated with ourselves – and yet we’re not quite sure how to change things.


If you keep on doing what you’ve always done…

Last week I wrote about two key things that will help you be more productive (no fads, apps or shiny new objects).
