Overview of life by Me and their innovative time management software and process “To do or not to do,” to help us with what we WANT to do, not just HAVE to do.Its use unburdens the mind from having to carry all of the data, and allows identifying what is most meaningful, then removing fear that prevents getting there, identifying support systems, and offering clever tricks to stay engaged in the process until it is done.
Many people have fallen into the dangerous trap beingaddicted to stress.Why is this happening, and what can we do about it?Sophie advises how to regain an ability to slow down, reflect, listen and see what is in front of our noses to get back to and stay aware of what is really meaningful.Is our busy-ness covering up lack of quality alternatives?
The end of the year is fast approaching and we are being pressed on all sides to close on commitments, yet our heads are so full.Sophie outlines some real simple tricks of the trade to get organized and clear off the lists – not tear them up, but address the key vital needs even if we need to trick ourselves in the process to get there.
Great project management includes having the skill to politely say “no” to a request, not feeling like we have let others down or loose their respect or confidence, and their continuing to like to be around us and rely upon us.Staying true to our intentions, we need to be able to ask for support, articulate exactly what WE need, and learn to take big projects and break them down to small actions.
How do you have a difficult conversation? Sophie takes us through the Seven Steps to invest and address in order to build lasting relationships.This takes practice, stamina and trust in yourself in order to avoid piling up resentments and unexpressed communication that can result in roadblocks and separation.A successful difficult conversation can actually bring you closer to others.
In the spirit of truly celebrating the close of the year and preparing for the next, Sophie advises how a neutral, non-judgmental mind can help us create the dreams and relationships of a lifetime. To move forward with a goal we need to really look at what is, not what could have been, should have been, or would have been. To ease the journey, she discusses the tools of compassion, openness and sincerity.
