Juggling to Stay Sane

How are you going to fit it all in now that you have more responsibilities? 

Most newly promoted professionals and parents never ask (or answer) this all important question...

After all, they went to university, they'll work it out over time just like everyone else before them. 

They'll read loads of books and blogs... instead of focusing on what's really going to reliably work day after day to get it all done. 

It's not their fault, but when you trust your 'to-do' list to hope, you're setting yourself up for a rollercoaster ride of emotions that erodes your confidence. Oh dear!

I can't tell you how many people have told me, "Martine, I wish I had met you a year ago before I felt useless trying to juggle all of these things."

I believe that your time management skills is an investment in your mental health that will pay dividends for years to come. You just need to know how to do it...


How Full is Your Cup?

As life gets busier we need to deepen our reservoir of resilience

Most people go through their day and never reflect (or answer) this all-important question…

After all, they’re smart and going places, the world is at their feet.

They’re kicking goals… instead of worrying about how to extend this magical time in a healthful way.

So many get caught in this trap, but when you step onto the bus and have no sense of the destination, you’re taking a big risk of getting off at the right stop. Tough luck!

If I had a dollar for the number of people who have told me, “I wish I’d met you earlier in my career. I didn't realise I could have prevented this.”

I believe that your level of awareness is directly related to your success.

Your thoughts, feelings and actions are a direct message from your cup. 


Building the Platform

Your shortcut to laying the foundation for a successful, fulfilling career - no matter what industry you're in

No doubt there are lots of people doing the same job, at the same level as you with the same aspirations. What differentiates each of you is how you go about achieving them.

Some will want to take a structured approach focusing on the experiences and tasks that perhaps need to be completed in order to move forward. Or perhaps self-doubt prevents them from getting out of the detail and keeps them mainly in the ‘doing space’.

For others, they will want to focus on the relationships and perhaps skip over some experiences and tasks. They want to work in harmony with their colleagues and clients which at times prevents them from confidently providing feedback. Or they have so many ideas it’s hard to select one to focus on.

In both cases they work longer hours than they need to and set themselves up for burnout and heartache.

If any of this describes you… I get it.  

I want to help you leverage your strengths, manage your energy, and honour your values so you can achieve sustainable success on your own terms.   

This is what we do together in Building the Platform.
