Why I Stopped Blogging For Six Months

To the 10 of you who noticed I’d stopped blogging, thank you! To the 10,990 rest of you – yes, I stopped. Many months ago now. Why? Here’s the answer. And you won’t like it.

My 88 year old mother broke her shoulder earlier this year. This threw me into a crisis… suddenly having to fit in (lovingly and willingly) to my already packed weeks 15-20 hours of extra hands on ‘care’. Something had to give. And, frankly, that was you. Why? Because I followed this wonderful idea.

Inspiring Peak Performance, Every Time!

It’s 15 years ago this week that PK and I held the hands of Steve Lyons as he passed away in Kuala Lumpur from cancer. I recall the most powerful and inspiring habit Steve had. It defined him. And stays with me today. Do you do this? If not- start now!

You don’t remember what someone said, or what they did, but you always remember the way they made you feel. And Steve Lyons was an absolutely master at making you feel incredible. Steve made you feel everything and anything was possible- was within your grasp. He lifted your spirits, ambition, drive. He made your heart beat faster. All who were touched by Steve know exactly what I mean.

Here’s what Steve would do that was so inspiring. So simple. So powerful. Steve, quite simply:

An Addiction That Haunts Me. You Too?

I am outing myself today as an addict. It has me by the throat. But now I know how to straighten out. It will help you too. Promise.

I have ‘an addictive personality.’ Many vices wink at me, but I managed to keep them at bay. How? Because I know I have an addictive personality. So I am on my guard.

Except one. It’s a vice which I bet you are addicted to too. (Actually, I never bet. It’s too addictive). In your heart you know it has you by the throat. If you want to stop being an addict to it, then take this one, powerful step. Here it is.

You Will Have A Problem With This Position

Things never all go right for me. Something is always going wrong, somewhere. You too? I now have the insight on how to react to constant setbacks. Here it is.

The funds manager sat opposite me, drinking his morning coffee. “How’s the fund going?” I asked this now entrepreneur, who had started his own investment fund, managing other people’s (and his own) money. “Pretty good,” he replied, “except……” This insight gave me the clarity on how to approach setbacks and problems. This is what he told me.

The Secret Of High Performance

If you want inspiration on how to be part of a brilliant, winning, growing, thriving team and business, then read on. I have a secret to share that will deliver success. Here it is.

My new business is all about helping leaders accelerate growth. It means I get the privilege of ‘looking under the hoods’ of more communications businesses than you can poke a stick at. And every time I get asked the same question: “How do we create a high performance culture in our business?”

The answer is simple. Not glamorous. Not sexy ‘visions and values nicely framed on the tea room wall’ stuff. If you want to build and be a part of a business that is a high performing, winning, leading unit, it all starts with doing this one thing. There is no short-cut.
