Day 152 - Holding Company

8/22/2020
​HOLDING COMPANY It is the pot that holds the soup. It is our soup. It is the universe that holds the world. It is our world. It is the arm that holds the child. It is our child. It is the book that holds the word. It is our word. It is the face that holds a smile. It is our smile. It is the light that holds all life. It is our life. _______________________ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1. What do you hold in your life? 2. Who holds you? _______________________ THE BOOK -...

DAY 151 - Short-term Memory

8/21/2020
​SHORT-TERM MEMORY We awaken each day. We forget to say thanks. We settle to sleep. We forget to say thanks. We eat our food. We forget to say thanks. We wear our clothes. We forget to say thanks. We have our home. We forget to say thanks. We have our world We forget to say thanks. We walk and talk. We forget to say thanks. We laugh and cry. We forget to say thanks. We have our family. We forget to say thanks. We have our friends. We forget to say thanks. We have our...

Day 150 - Holiday

8/20/2020
HOLIDAY My mind is busy running over all of the current activities. It’s as if I’m living in them rather than just completing them and moving on. I seem to want to hold it all in my head and replay the elements over and over again. Where I did well or where I messed up. I shift down a gear and leave all the daily activity to one side. Travelling slower, I can plan and organise. There is more space for thinking here. It is quieter. And then I go even slower and bring...

Day 149 - Energy Supplier

8/19/2020
​ENERGY SUPPLIER Some days I waken up full of energy, ready to get moving and excited about the day ahead. Some days I waken up lacklustre, weary, struggling to get going to face the tasks ahead. Today is an energy day just like yesterday! I must be on a roll. It’s so good to be alive. I must capitalise on this potential. I have to get it all done. For tomorrow, who knows, I could be in low power mode. These are not good days or bad days for every day is a good day. It’s...

Day 148 - ​Weather forecast

8/18/2020
WEATHER FORECAST I look at the early morning sky. It is a blank canvas. By lunchtime, I will have filled in half of this picture. By tonight, it will all be complete. And what will this picture be? Whether or not it will be the picture I planned waits to be seen. _______________________ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1. Look up at the sky where you are - go on, do this now! 2. This sky is your blank canvas for the rest of this day. What picture are you planning to...

Day 147 - Rat Race

8/17/2020
RAT RACE We have inherited a world where jobs and work are allocated to people. Employers decide on the tasks that need to be done and carve up the activity. It’s an out-dated economic model where we are paid to do what we are told. And where many people have no jobs. With technology we can now create work in different ways, driven by what really matters. We can link up with others and collaborate on projects that are important to us as individuals. We can take...

Day 146 - Call to Prayer

8/16/2020
CALL TO PRAYER The church clock in our little village chimes at 3 o’clock as I cut the grass. It’s my call to prayer and I pause for a moment. At 4 o’clock we repeat the process. It seems like a fitting end point, working to God’s time. Time for thanks and a cold beer. _______________________ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1. When do you pause in your day to give thanks? _______________________ THE BOOK - Thinking Differently About Everything: 100 Perspectives on What Really...

Day 145 - Sharing Economy

8/15/2020
​SHARING ECONOMY I sit on Platform 2 in the shade, on a sunny August day with a cup of tea and some 'oats and honey' crunchy biscuits. Three pigeons keep me company and make sure that we leave nothing behind. _______________________ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1. How can you help others on your journey? 2. Who is in your sharing economy? _______________________ THE BOOK - Thinking Differently About Everything: 100 Perspectives on What Really Matters Des McCabe's daily blog

Day 144 - Appointment Reminder

8/14/2020
APPOINTMENT REMINDER In the middle of the night when all is so dark and empty there is nothing for me to see or do. My mind shoots me back to that dreaded place I knew well, when I was 17. Fearing death and my non-existence. These momentary incisions literally shake me as I am overwhelmed by some uncontrollable force. The panic attack as they named it, has returned tonight. It’s terrifying. Back then, I had ​my whole life before me. I could rationalise these moments. Now, and...

Day 143 - On-line Job Application

​ON-LINE JOB APPLICATION What is your current job? Please don’t use your job title. Who do you work for? Please don’t put your business name or your boss’s name here. What do you work for? Please go beyond money. What do you actually do? Please go beyond your job description. What does your ideal job look like? Please say what you’d really like to do. _______________________ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1. Put all five answers together.. 2. Send this to yourself and...

Day 141 - The Zone

8/11/2020
​THE ZONE ‘You have to be in the zone.’ she said. ‘You have to focus your mind, be in a different place and bring all to bear on the task.’ And then she smiled and said ‘And from here you can find the real zone, which is beyond all tasks and beyond all thinking, where no zone can be.’ _______________________ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1. What is the real zone? _______________________ THE BOOK - Thinking Differently About Everything: 100 Perspectives on What Really...

Day 140 - Thinking Skills

8/10/2020
THINKING SKILLS If we waken up and then just pick up where we left off yesterday, we are doing more of what we have already done. This is cumulative thinking. If we waken up and then something unexpected hits us, we have to reassess everything. Our day is turned upside-down as we work out what to do next. This is reactive thinking. If we waken up and then choose to begin something new or different today, we are creating a fresh opportunity. We are uncovering our new...

Day 139 - First Responder

8/9/2020
FIRST RESPONDER When tragedy strikes around the world we see images of destruction and death. There’s pain and anguish on young faces. It’s easy to feel helpless. But there are six key things we can do in these moments. We can be with the families not just as onlookers but in our thoughts. We can feel and share some of their pain. We can send our message of love right now. Personal and direct. We can offer ourselves and all that we are to support them. We can give money...

Day 138 - Starter

STARTER We mess up. We learn. We start again. We got it wrong. We think about it. We start again. We let others down. We are disappointed. We start again. We failed to deliver. We are annoyed. We start again. We got caught out. We are embarrassed. We start again. We missed the opportunity. We are frustrated. We start again. We see it fall apart. We are devastated. We start again. ______________________ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1. Is there anything...

Day 137 - Outsourcing

8/7/2020
OUTSOURCING Don’t do everything yourself. Share your dream with the world. Collaborate with others. Reach out and build your team. For when we don’t try to do everything, we can do anything. Don’t do everything yourself. Create projects and initiatives. Let others work with you. Set out the plan and make it happen. For when we let it all go, we will all do everything. ______________________ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1. How will you work with others so that they can help...

Day 136 - Home Security

8/6/2020
HOME SECURITY I sat patiently on the beach, not moving. I sat there for hours. And then I felt a different sensation as the tide slowly came in. No waves, no noise. Quietly and gently the sea lifted me off the stones. I swayed left and right, forwards and backwards, for what seemed like a lifetime. Not knowing what to do. And still the tide came in. It started to move me outwards, leading me further from my place of safety. I drifted away on an uncharted journey. Happy...

Day 134 - Liquidity

8/4/2020
LIQUIDITY We become so busy in life doing all we should and getting on with everything, that it is easy to forget to look closely and to assess it all. This is more than thinking about where we are or planning our future. It’s about something internal beyond all our actions. It’s about going closer towards the essence of life itself. Being part of the liquid of life flowing through all of us. As one. ______________________ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1. What is the...

Day 133 - Action Leadership

8/3/2020
​ACTION LEADERSHIP We see lack of activity as being ineffective, or being lazy or non productive. We have forgotten how to sit and wait, to be content and trust that all is well. ______________________ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE 1.
