If you're ready for big change in your life but somehow you're holding yourself back, here's how to release yourself in to what is truly possible for you.

It starts with letting go of your limited view of yourself, what you have achieved so far and (by extension) what you think you reasonably might achieve in the future.

No big leap forward was ever made by iteration.
Reinvention is the game, and shedding your old skin is ...

Quiet Quitting - turning up for one's job and doing the bare minimum - what do you think ? I've been hearing many opinions that strike me as unsympathetic, so here I choose to redress the balance.

If you're burnt out and quiet quitting, that seems like a rational response, but it's unlikely to help you feel better. I believe resolving burnout itself gives you much broader and more powerful options.

So, listen for tips...

It's that moment when fear blows up in our faces and suddenly we CAN'T hold it together any more. Things stop working and we're left alone with our feelings.

Life is trying to tell us something. In my case, that there is deeper post-burnout growth available, there's more truth to face. It's another layer of the onion and I'm choosing to stay open and present to that. Let the reinvention begin!

Why do smart people make irrational decisions every day? The answers will surprise you. Humans are a bit quirky in our decison-making. It's more of an art than a science.
In fact, we make decisions based to a large extent on our survival instincts, ego, emotions - ANYTHING but logical anaylsis.
This week I review Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely to deep-dive into how we make decisions. You will be amazed!

With coaching we can solve any problem. But sometimes we're so used to the old way of reacting to things, or to people we know, that we abandon the solution in favour of what we used to do, that didn't work so well. So here's what to do in that case, to handle stubborn problems.

Learn why our opinions of others, and what we think others think about us, are so important.

In burnout, we adopt a rather pessimistic view of ourselves, our performance and the people we work with. We often worry excessively - I'm sure you know what I mean! And the more exhausted we become, the worse our people experience get, until finally we withdraw and isolate.

Here is a little of what tipped me in to burnout in my career in software development and leadership.  It was a long, slow grisly drag that ended quite badly, but it contains some elements that may strike a chord with you. I recovered and I no longer fear burnout, because I learned the skill of resilience and tapped in to my passion in a new and more rewarding way. Everything is a blessing, in the end.

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
