Robin Bates

Ah, messing it all up when things were going well. We’ve all done it. Let’s look at how you can minimise the possibility of it occurring. Bonus!

Motivation

Robin Bates

I started out as a confidence and motivation coach, dipped into neuro linguistic programming – learned loads so will share some of it right here. Never forget your big Why? Find the things that get you going. Sometimes things suck and the sooner you get them done the sooner you can move on. Which reminds me – it’s about time …

Accountability

Robin Bates

You know I love some accountability At least if you’re in the CfG facebook group you do! Accountabilibuddies make you accountabilibuddiable. But why? It’s someone to report in to.

Resource Inventory

Robin Bates

You are overencumbered and cannot run. That’s a little inventory joke there.   You’re actually going to get as much stuff as you need stuffed into that bag of holding.

Where Are You Now?

Robin Bates Leave a Comment

I REALLY wanted to use the Super Mario World map. I was REALLY advised against it because Nintendo are quite litigious, and as much brilliant PR that would be, I don’t want to upset the people I love. SO I bought this piece of art instead. Before you make a plan, you have to know where you are right now. …
