The week that was

Long week at the office. We're a smaller team now after a recent company wide downsizing. Same amount of BAU work with half the people. Should be interesting how the new 'regime' works out over the next 3-6 months. And we had a few new projects kicked off this week with all day workshops to follow.

TGIF eh?

On saturating my grey matter with all things Success - I'm continuing with Tony Robbins and Stephen Covey to and from work. Lots of good stuff and Covey's dense approach definitely calls for repeated listening before it all sinks in.

Not much progress on the Success Principles, need a bit of catch up reading this weekend. Important thing is momentum. It's hard; old ingrained habits and all. Covey made a good metaphor - a rocket leaving the Earth's gravity takes a lot of energy but once you're in space, things are so much easier. Conquering oneself is like that. You need to exert enough force of discipline and consistency to escape your old self.

An there endeth the lesson this week :-)
