The secret ingredient to make change work is motivation, says keynote speaker, trainer and established Australian author, Andrew Griffiths.
Aiming to put the passion back into our business and our life, Griffiths identifies the main reasons behind a lack of balance and offers simple, practical and easy to implement ideas to achieve this.
The self confessed serial entrepreneur writes from the heart, explaining he has been a workaholic most of his adult life who has owned many small businesses that have ended up ruling his life.
121 (includes 20 bonus) tips, under twelve topical headings, provide a user friendly format, suiting the reader wanting to flick through and stop where there is something of interest, or the reader who likes to read from beginning to end. There’s room following each section to make notes and at the end, blank forms with helpful questions, reference books and websites.
Griffiths says balance is something different for each of us and changes that upset that balance, creep up on us. By answering pertinent questions we can form a mental picture of how we would ideally like our life to look and feel, with “What can I do today” suggestions, leaving no room for procrastination.
Advice includes, investing time, energy and money to get back the balance that is missing, mastering the art of saying no and pampering ourselves by doing something we really love to do, often.
We’ve heard it all before, but it‘s good to have it clearly defined in one publication.
