Most of us hardly spend any time understanding how humans work. How we work.
When we want to make changes in our work, life, relationships, health and more, we take on snippets of information and advice. If the information and advice is sound and we act on it, things start to change.
The purpose of this podcast is to expand our understanding of how we work, particularly how our brain works. Making physical changes in our brain will make real changes to life. And the biggest thing we need to understand and work on is our habits.
We are a collection of habits and up to 80% of what we do each day can be down to habits we have formed consciously and unconsciously.
I take a look at the science of why we do what we do and more importantly how to make changes and create habits, routines and systems which will help improves lives.
I also talk to guests who can shed more light on why we do what we do, and other guests who share the challenges they faced and how they made changes.
I am a performance and change coach working with people who want to make changes in their life, work, and future. I focus on helping people build habits, routines, and systems because these are the foundations where change happens.

Why An Evening Routine Is More Important Than a Morning Routine
Morning routines are great. They help get started and also look after your health and wellbeing (depending on what your routine involves!).
However, far more important is what you do to prepare for the day ahead. What you do each evening has an impact on what you will do in the morning and also for the rest of the day.
I talk through why your evening routine is important and what you can do to have an awesome day.

The Real Reasons People Work With A Coach - It Wasn't What I Thought!
It's a serious commitment to work with a coach. And it's a big decision. I had thought people simply wanted to get things done. Achieve a goal, reach a target, and usually this is what prompts someone to start working with a coach.
A coach will help a client with the starting objectives/goals/targets which brought them together. However, when I ask clients what they valued in the coaching some the answers surprised me. It wasn't just about reaching a goal!
