As the new year is a time that many of us set intentions, I thought I’d share something that I’ve found extremely useful over the past few years. This originates from native American wisdom. I can’t remember it exactly but it goes something like this… Each day when the sun rises, the native Americans treated it as a brand new sun. So each morning, they set an intention that they would do the best they could, so that the sun doesn’t waste it’s one and only valuable day! ☀️

I adopted that mentality for myself and whilst I’m not preaching that you should do the same, on my journey, this practice has helped in many ways. See, if we have the attitude that we will ‘try’ really hard in the new year, by the time February is here, the motivation starts to diminish. Instead, if you set the intention each day, you have a new opportunity each and every morning to put the past behind you and focus on the good that you can do right now, not tomorrow, not next week, not in the new year, but now. For now is all we have.

In this era of information overload, my intention with my writing is to keep everything short and precise. These articles are not intended to be in-depth guides, they're merely short introductions. If a particular subject takes your fancy you may choose to explore it in more detail. if you want dive deeper - there is plenty of recommended reading here. I also put on talks and workshops which are more suitable for discussing subjects at greater length. Check my news page for events.
