3 Things I Learnt This Week: 18th October 2019

Things I learnt this week: 1. Journaling 2.1 – I wrote a piece recently on journaling after spending several months observing the journaling habits of highly successful people. However, I learnt a lot more yesterday from this wonderful podcast, which is essentially an audio tutorial, from Chip Franks on 10 techniques for effective journaling. I’d come across all of the techniques before, but it was … Continue reading 3 Things I Learnt This Week: 18th October 2019

5 Things I Learnt This Week – 27th September 2019

Firstly, apologies for the month-long hiatus in these missives. I’ve been on a particularly big learning curve this last month, working through a new module in the practical MBA that is running one’s own company. Unfortunately, this module is: How to Shut Down a Business. We’re a good way through the process and I’m coming up for air again so I thought I’d share this … Continue reading 5 Things I Learnt This Week – 27th September 2019

6 Things I Learnt This Week – 23rd August 2019

This week I learnt … … how to start the day by filling your heart up: A dear friend sent me this Tony Robbins 10-minute breathing exercise / meditation this week and I LOVE it. It’s based on Tony’s morning routine where he visualises some of his happiest memories in great sensory detail. It’s a gorgeous way to start the morning and puts any problems … Continue reading 6 Things I Learnt This Week – 23rd August 2019

Book Review: Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr Joe Dispenza

I only review books that have blown my mind, helped me grow and taught me things I couldn’t possibly have figured out for myself. My reviews are bulleted for easy consumption. You can read my full notes on this book here. REASONS I ADORED THIS BOOK: It’s the Law of Attraction explained as quantum physics by a neuroscientist. For those of us who desperately want … Continue reading Book Review: Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr Joe Dispenza

Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr Joe Dispenza – my full notes

My “full” notes don’t cover 3 areas of the book: (1) the lengthy description of how quantum physics work, (2) the lengthy description of how our neural networks work, (3) the details of Dispenza’s meditation process The way to mastery is PHILOSOPHY (learning intellectual info) —> INITIATION (initiating that knowledge into life by applying it enough times until you MASTER it If you wait for … Continue reading Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr Joe Dispenza – my full notes

5 Things I Learnt This Week

I have started turning my mornings into miracles, thanks to The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod – a book I first heard about a couple of years ago and wish I had read before now. The general idea is to get up an hour (or less) earlier than usual and use that time to work on yourself before you start reacting to life, processing kids etc. His acronym for the … Continue reading 5 Things I Learnt This Week

6 things I learnt this week: 9th August 2019

Taking time to do a “business plan” for your life is an amazing thing to do. I’ve spent countless months of my life doing them for work, and so why not for my own life? I always value the process of taking time away from the noise and focusing on a clean vision and how to execute it – turns out, it’s even more fun doing … Continue reading 6 things I learnt this week: 9th August 2019

5 things I learnt this week: 20th July 2019

The more I learn about psychedelics, the more fascinated I am, and the more excited for a future where these drugs can have huge benefits for everything from PTSD to patients staring at a terminal cancer diagnosis. Last year I read Stealing Fire, which is an incredible book on how to harness higher states of consciousness to increase performance (and enjoy life more). While meditation … Continue reading 5 things I learnt this week: 20th July 2019

Polyvagal Theory: how our nervous system really works

I have just finished The Pocket Guide to the Polyvagal Theory by Dr Stephen Porges. I found it a really tough, technical read. That said, I persevered because I found its messages to be incredibly important. This book has profoundly changed the way I understand my nervous system (admittedly off a very low base!!). My previous understanding of my nervous system: I need to spend … Continue reading Polyvagal Theory: how our nervous system really works

My full notes: Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss

Tools of Titans is hands-down one of my favourite books of all time, and probably the one I’ve gifted the most. It’s a ridiculously valuable compilation of life advice from many seriously talented and successful people. Full disclosure: Tim divided the interviewees into Healthy, Wealthy and Wise categories and I liked this so much that I nicked it for this site! I organised my notes … Continue reading My full notes: Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss
