Planning is a like a Jigsaw!

Are you a big picture thinker or a details person? Are you too close to the picture to be able to see it clearly? ‘Big picture thinking’ is a person who looks at problems and opportunities. A creative person, an idea generator who brainstorms as many ideas as possible. ‘A details person’ is someone who considers all the parts, seeing all aspects, able to see the detail from all angles. This person is someone who sees the finer points considering these carefully. Whether we’re a big picture thinker or a detailed person, often what we see is like a jigsaw, a jumble of pieces with the picture facedown. Seeing all these pieces can feel overwhelming, too hard to even contemplate trying to piece them all together. Plans and planning is like a jigsaw isn’t it?

We are often our own worst enemy in that we create our own limiting beliefs, live by them and believe them to be true and unconquerable. But we don’t need to do this anymore, we can change the way we think, change our mindset, change our pattern of behaviour and our thoughts. We can! Let’s start with looking back to when we first started having doubts about ourselves and about what. We need to dissect it and find out what’s inside. Once we break it down, we can see it for what it is. Small pieces of fractured items that in themselves are without power, but together we seem to give ‘it’ power to stop us, slow us down, prevent us from doing

The Secret of the Spoken Word!

There are so many ways nowadays to communicate with others. The old-fashioned way, face-to-face or telephone, video conference, either audio or visual, and of course in writing, whether pen to paper, email, text, message etc. The list is endless. We often default to what is easier, or quicker for us, when in actual fact, it’s not always the best means of communication is it? Surely there is nothing better than the spoken word! Whether this be a conversation, a presentation or as a facilitator. When we are feeling down – this is probably one of the best ways to counteract how we’re feeling. Talking to someone, getting things ‘off our chest’, sharing a problem or an issue. What is it they say? ‘A problem shared is a problem halved’.
