    Get more things done! 

    Want to be more productive every day?

    A lot of people find that making a to-do list before bed each night and checking it first thing the next morning helps them stay focused and get more done.

    Deeper-rooted values! 

    towards-away

    The towards and away from programmes.

    If you have a towards programme, you are recognisable by your drive.You set goals easily and are frequently creating new goals for yourself. Sometimes you disregard the risks involved and, at if your values are being violated, what are you going to do about it? the extreme end, may not complete one goal before beginning another.

    Advantages – forward-thinking, goal-orientated, positive energy and drive.

    Disadvantages – may get entangled in too many new initiatives at once, may be perceived as gung-ho and have a tendency to leave things unfinished.

    If you have an away from programme, you focus on avoiding risks and making sure everything is safe before moving forward.You sometimes miss out on life and work experiences as a result of fear of taking a risk. Typical behaviour includes being overinsured ‘just in case’ and, when asked what you want, replying with a list of things you don’t want. You hold back from getting involved in anything new until all concerns have been fully addressed.You put a high priority on all forms of security.

    Advantages – very good at assessing risks and recognising what to avoid.

    Disadvantages – overly cautious, with a tendency to focus on the downside, may appear negative and unwilling to try new experiences and make choices based on avoidance rather than a desire for something new.

    What is important to you? 

    nicos2013-01

    What is really important in your life? How about your work?

    What is it about your work that makes all the effort you put in worthwhile? What’s important about your relationships with your partner, your immediate and extended family, friends and colleagues?

    When you ask these questions of yourself, where do your answers come from? Do they come from your head or your heart?

    These are your values – the things in life that are really important to you and you will go out of your way to protect, uphold and defend.

    So do you know, with conviction, what is important to you?

    The main differences between the conscious and unconscious mind 

    The main differences between the conscious and unconscious mind.

    The unconscious mind can deal with substantially more information than the conscious mind, which, it is generally believed, can cope concurrently with no more than seven items. Because of the limited capacity to absorb data, the conscious mind is selective about what it does absorb. The way it selects is based on how the mind has previously been conditioned through influences such as the environment, specific incidents and other factors. In summary,

    The conscious mind:

    •  selects from a range of sensory information and converts it into thought
    • processes thought;
    • comprehends numbers and symbols;
    • applies logic;
    • decides behavioural strategies based on known personal competencies;
    • translates thought into language and behaviour;
    •  controls emotions.

    The unconscious mind:

    •  influences emotional response;
    •  invokes spontaneous reaction (such as with phobias);
    • preconditions conscious thought processes;
    • unconsciously applies memories and experiences;
    • picks up hidden signals;
    • determines personality.
