I’m going to use this insight to develop the skill of, let’s call it, anti-procrastination! My default setting when I’m writing is to take ages to go over and over the wording, change it, change it back, change it again, think about it some more … This strategy does work for me, but it takes time and it would be useful to be more skilled in writing with the same quality (!!!) but in less time.
So that’s what I’m doing now. Practising in plain sight. I gave myself 30 minutes (it took me 27!) to use this Insight as an opportunity to learn from doing something I need to improve as part of my daily routine (and not something ‘extra’ I had to try to fit in). I have also planned in 15 minutes later today to reflect on what I learned. Too often I hear people say they don’t have time to develop new skills. They’re too busy. I think there’s always time if you look hard enough. Do you have any opportunities to practise in plain sight today?

My wife and I went to see comedian Kevin Bridges in Glasgow recently. He’s one of our favourites and as always, he didn’t disappoint. The part that had me laughing the hardest was about social media and how some people seem to want to make everything about them
I don’t know if you’re aware of this but there’s a lot of research that shows that in the ‘modern’ workplace, people want to FEEL ‘connected’. To be part of something. If you think about motivation this makes sense.
