Have Some Space, it saves time!
When we are busy and have a list of tasks as long as our arm, it seems counterintuitive to take some time out, have some space. Yes, my suggestion for you in the next coming weeks is to have some space, some free time. I realise that it is probably the busiest time of the year. And...

Stop overthinking – How do I do that?
  Stop overthinking – How do I do that? asked a client. He shared that his brain just doesn’t switch off. He wasn’t sleeping well, feeling stressed and he’s had enough. One of the first questions I asked was how many thoughts he had, on average, in a day. “Millions”...

Are you a mind reader? Can you really mind read what people are thinking? Imagine this scenario: Sitting in a room is a group of people from many backgrounds. What links them is that they are all interested in learning. Gradually, one by one, they share what they want to achieve from...
