Your attention is a scarce resource.
Who we are and who we will become to a large extent depends on what we pay attention to and what we choose to ignore. But for most of us it doesn’t seem like we have much choice at all.
We live in a distraction economy where almost everything is competing for and demanding our attention. It’s easy for the brain to be overloaded with too many choices, and when this happens, we often make no choice at all and just accept the easiest option.
Individual coaching sessions designed for executives, professionals, SME business owners and individuals to help you focus on really matters to you.

Most of us now know that we need spend less time on our smartphones and tablets. It is similar to the recommendations of 5 portions of fruit and veg a day, 150 minutes of exercise a week and 7 hours or more of sleep, and it can be hard to get into the habit of a healthier and more rewarding lifestyle. However, you may not be aware that you should also add at least 2 hours in nature per week to this list and there is a growing body of scientific research to support itRead More →
02/08/20What we see is not all that there is!
Our media, governments, charities and other organisations rely on drama to grab our attention and it can only do this by focussing on extremes. Negative stories are more dramatic than neutral or positive ones. They, like us, are predisposed to over-simplify, to imply certainty where none exists, and to divide all kinds of things into two distinct and often conflicting groups with a huge gap between them, when in reality most things are in the middle.Read More →

The Digital Detox Coach featured in the article ‘Here’s how to declutter your smartphone’ by Jonathan Wells in the 'The Gentleman’s Journal' a leading men’s luxury lifestyle publication, overing the latest in style, grooming, business, lifestyle, culture, food & more.
Quotes include “We need to remind ourselves that the purpose of technology is to serve us, not the other way round,” says Corby. “Streamlining and paring down is essential if we want to remain in control.
