The desire to succeed is often driven by the reality of failure. While we never set out to fail, we know that failure can often be the lesson we learn on our path to success. Regardless of what we are wanting to succeed at, the chances are that we will make mistakes before we get it right. Robin explains her approach to success from failure.

An intriguing topic. The more we focus on the good things in our life and be grateful for their existence the more we will be able to succeed. Focusing too much on bad things or points of failure will inevitably lead to the job not getting done – be that at home or at work. Robin expands on this issue.

We all think that we only change our behaviour or thoughts or feelings when we grow up through childhood, and that when we are an adult, our behaviour is all set. Not so. Our feelings about anything in life change as we get older and often we fail to recognize the change we have gone through. Robin explains.

We all want to progress in life – whether that be at the office or in social life. Yet sometimes our lifestyle is too focused on one part of our routine such as working too long hours, such that our home life, especially with our kids, is impacted. The need to find a balance between our career and lifestyle is critical to our desire to progress. Robin offers some ideas.

Leadership in the business world comes in many different shapes and sizes. Some leaders are aggressive, some negative all the time, some condescending and some are easy to work with. Yet there is a growing trend in the business world to recognize that while the employee (your staff) may not need pampering, they do need understanding and in many cases they need to be supported through personal help or support. Robin explains.

The need to improve is probably a part of everyone’s goal in life. Yet too often we find excuses to avoid going through the changes we need to make to get better. It’s either too much hassle, or will take too much time, or just plain old “Can’t be bothered”. So, that goal-setting we think we are working on is, in reality, nothing more than a dream. Robin helps us change our approach.

Shaking hands when we meet a new person, or even an old friend, has been the norm for centuries. It has become such an obvious and natural action that we rarely notice we have done it. But now in this new environment of social distancing such actions – and many other new norms – have arisen. Robin discusses their impact.

The pandemic lockdown has shown us that there are so many things in our normal lifestyle that their absence hasn’t really affected us too much. Items at the grocery store for example have not been on the shelves in some cases, yet have we suffered? Unlikely. So the facts is that we probably can do without certain things in life yet still live a full and satisfying life. Robin shares some ideas about coping with less.

During this Pandemic and social distancing many sections of society have suffered – none more so than older relatives. Not being able to see grandkids for example has been stressful, but the inability of grown-up children to visit elderly parents has caused anguish on both sides. Robin addresses some of the issue.

Conversation within the family unit can be stressful at the best of times – but during lockdown – and especially if the topic is sensitive – the confrontational problems of such topics can appear easily. The frustration of housebound members can overflow into inflamed discussion. Robin offers a few thoughts to help.
