What Matters

I've been reflecting on what matters, lessons learned, practices to experiment with and ideas worth exploring.

the power of a head start

How do you give yourself a headstart for the week ahead?

Sunday late afternoon is usually prep day in our household - meal prep, getting things ready for the week ahead so we can destress Monday mornings and have healthy grab and go options through the week.

Then we kick back Sunday evening with relaxed family time.

How do you give yourself a headstart for the week ahead?

Spend more Moments in the Moment

I get it.  Busy busy.  Every moment filled and rushing to the next.  Hoping for a moment of peace and quiet.

Balancing everyone else's needs and trying to squeeze in moments of time for you.

Today's challenge: how can you spend more moments in the moment?

The power of a friend

Reminded today that it's not just what you know, its who you know.  It's who you associate with... Who you spend time with.  Its making time to connect with friends.  On good days and bad.  It can be easy in this hyper-connected world to feel like you know what's going on for them as you glimpse their feed... but we don't.

Nothing can replace a conversation with a friend.  The power of connecting with someone who knows you and cares for you.  Who you know and care for.  The power of a friend.

Which friend can you connect with today?

What is your ideal restore recipe?

Sea salt seeking this weekend.  Its time for some beach.  The beach (a quiet beach) is my happy place.  Some of the best of nature, some quiet time and some time with those I love.  This is my ideal recipe to restore.
Most of my Restore recipes include water - ideally moving water - but saltwater is my clear favourite. I like to fall asleep to the sound of waves so much I listen to the pink noise soundtracks of waves crashing. ...but its more than the sound and sights of the beach. Its also the smell. That smell of saltwater, and the smell of the dried salt on your skin...

Do you start your day by consuming social media?

Do you start your day by consuming social media?  This may feel like connecting but delivers little value and ensures your day is shaped by other people's lives.  

Create before you consume. 

Whether it is:

  • writing down 3 things you are grateful for
  • sending a text to a friend or family member
  • thinking through your day

Start your day creating.

How did it come to this?

"How did it come to this?", she asked.  She sounded helpless and defeated. This smart, successful woman was juggling motherhood with her demanding role while in COVID lockdown in Melbourne. When we caught up, she was bouncing her two year old on her lap with her six year old “schooling” beside her, tugging on her every 10 minutes. That day she’d had meetings presenting to the leadership team, delivered a town hall briefing to hundreds and pumped out a couple of board papers. She’d provided emotional support for her team who were struggling under similar...

Build the recharge in upfront

 

A week at the beach with the children at the end of a long project has been a good reminder of the importance of taking time to recharge.

In the first month of the project, our team discussed the recovery plans - what good looked like included a successful delivery, exceeding expectations and then some time off before returning to the day jobs. 

This became an asset to our team as we worked through a challenging project with extensive travel and time away from family. 

The week at the beach for me to recharge became an incentive for the children and a reward for putting up with...
