New Year Resolutions: two weeks in. Did you make any? How did you decide what you want to change? How did you decide what you really want in the first place? What external support systems are you using to keep your resolutions?
In the Show..
It’s cold and even snowy in Greece and Nicola and Sarah are using hot water bottles to keep warm at night and drinking gluhwein down at their new find, a Brit-centric cafe which serves said hot wine and also encourages book swapping. Nicola’s new camera has been delivered and unboxed live on Facebook. It’s still not perfect but she’s keeping it this time.
Judith’s getting out of the house more and going to the movies twice this week, and with twelve new films to see before the Oscars at the end of January, she’s going to be busy. She’s read a novel or two, about which more later, and she’s going to Sunday brunch at the house of her two best friends.
- What’s Fuelled Their Fire?
Nicola’s new App has launched in iTunes and Google Play and she’s running a competition to encourage reviews in its first week. Judith’s curiosity has been piqued by two successful business clients asking “Is business always this hard?” which provokes thoughts about ambition, success, fear, scarcity and the meaning of life. So soon into the New Year too!
- Client Challenge of the Week
Did you make any New Year Resolutions? How’s that working out? Neither Nicola or Judith did this year and they explain why, and offer some thoughts about balance and momentum and how to work out what you want. They also recommend some daily habits and useful apps which encourage stickability, whether it be fitness, meditation or learning a new language which feature amongst your plans for this year including FitBit, Headspace, Duolingo, FBPurity, Facebook Newsfeed Eradicator (Chrome), Unroll.me and The Five-Minute Journal.
- Words of the Week
Judith chooses Joy to co-incide with the soft launch of her new personal coaching collaboration called I Love My Life, and Nicola picks her own invented word – Vzine.
- Project Updates – all about this podcast
Nicola’s not happy with the way the podcast looks on her new app yet and version 1.2 will address that. Plus she’s made the changes to the podcast website as discussed in last week’s show and is taking a snapshot at app launch date so that extra app-encouraged downloads can be measured in future.
- Who or What’s Impressed?
Judith’s found a new crime writer she likes called Dana Stabenow, and in particular the Kate Shugak series about a part-time detective in the snows of Alaska. And Nicola is impressed by her daughter Phoebe who is going into the video business.
