Relate .. Relations .. Relatonships

“You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” 

Kahlil Gibran

I pulled that quotation out for those of us with a current focus on bettering relationships with family, friends, colleagues, significant others, whoever. I went along to a weekend workshop to get some clarity around my next steps from a work/business perspective. What kept popping up was the time/quality of my relationships with family, friends and my team at work – I’ve allowed them to take second place to career and income. And, of course, while I’ve been keen to keep us all hooked in and motivated, I’ve barely responded to any replies individuals have sent! So, bear with me while I re-orient my people interactions!! 

Went to a ‘Becoming a Coach’ info session last night – I like their model of coaching and they seem to have a great support system although the timing isn’t right for me just yet. There were a number of people there from the weekend … including our Bob. He’s asked me to pass on his best to everyone and regrets he doesn’t have access to emails at the moment. But he’s with us in spirit and was keen to keep in touch. So, I thought it might be an idea if over the next few days we each gave him a call (his number is on the cow herd listing) to say hello personally.

I did actually go to that coffee shop in case anyone turned up last weekend. No-one did and so I was gifted the opportunity to enjoy spending time with myself and my thoughts. I reflected on some of the content from the Intensive and enjoyed a lovely late lunch – so much that I promised I’d take some ‘me’ time and head off to a coffee shop at least once a fortnight!

Move it baby – WHAM

Move it move it, baby
Can’t you see I’m ready to dance?
And I can’t stop this rhythm in my heart.
Move it move it baby,
Can’t you see I’m ready to dance?
Without this beat my life would fall apart.

Shuffle on your feet till the floor is hot,
Gonna make a lot of money,
Gonna break your heart.
Watch out boy, (watch out boy)
Shuffle on your feet till the floor is hot,
Gonna make a lot of money,
Gonna break your heart.

But I’m the only one with a key.
And that’s me.

Sometimes,
You wake up in the morning with the bass line,
A ray of sunshine,
Sometimes,
You know today you’re gonna have a good time,
And you’re ready to go.

Move it move it baby
Can’t you see I’m ready to dance?
And I can’t keep my rhythm in my heart.
Move it move it baby,
Can’t you see I’m ready to dance?
Without this beat my life would fall apart.
Shuffle to the beat,
Gonna take a cut,
There’s money in your feet,
Gimme what you got.

Watch out boy, (watch out boy)
Shuffle to the beat,
Gonna take a cut,
There’s money in your feet,
Gonna stitch you up.

Any other boy that you see,
But not me.

Sometimes,
You wake up in the morning with the bass line,
A ray of sunshine,
Sometimes,
You know today you’re gonna have a good time,
And you’re ready to go.

Turn the music up,
Turn the music up, turn it up,
Because it’s all i’ve-
All that I’ve got.

Shuffle to the beat
Gonna take a cut,
There’s money in your feet,
Gimme what you got.

Watch out boy, (watch out boy)
Shuffle to the beat,
Gonna take a cut,
There’s money in your feet,
Gonna stitch you up.

Sometimes,
You wake up in the morning with the bass line,
A ray of sunshine,
Sometimes,
You know today you’re gonna have a good time,
And you’re ready to go.

Hmmm – I jinda like some of those words. If only I knew the tune!

Thought for the day …. Allow Time

Success is like the natural timing of the seasons – each season lasts for three months and a lot happens in that time. So, give yourself 90 days of applied planning and action to start to see results… sow the seeds, tend the fields (I think that’s what Bagger Vance said!).

MAKE A 90 DAY PLAN

Message for the day … Commit!

Hesitation = Pain : Commitment = pleasure

Think arrows and boards!! (If this means nothing to you .. you kinda had to be there!)
