    PMP #198: Macro Happiness

    PMP #198: Macro Happiness

    Over the holidays I was listening to an episode of Simon Sinek’s podcast, A Bit of Optimism. And in an interview with Derren Brown, Derren gets you to think about happiness as a verb, something you do, rather than as a noun, something you have.

    And as I was listening I had one of those moments where the penny dropped and I suddenly realised, of course, you can’t be happy all the time. And yet, as we go through life, we’re lead to believe that if you’re not happy, something must be wrong. We’re taught that happiness is something we need to find and hang on to for as long as possible.

    But this is completely unrealistic… You can’t be happy all the time and to think otherwise is setting yourself up for failure.

    PMP #197: Minor Updates: December 2020

    PMP #197: Minor Updates: December 2020

    Welcome to episode number 2 of Minor Updates. After recording my first update video a few months ago, I received really positive feedback and people seemed to really enjoy the more informal updates I shared.

    I decided to close out the year with another update to share some of the things I've been working on and stuff I'm thinking about for 2021.

    PMP #196: A detailed summary of how I spent my time in 2020

    PMP #196: A detailed summary of how I spent my time in 2020

    Last year I published a summary of how I spent my time in 2019. It was a fascinating exercise and I received positive feedback on the analysis. Understanding how your time is being spent is one of the best things you can do to make better choices and plan more effectively in the future. So, I thought it would be worth repeating this exercise again this year.

    NOTE: This analysis covers the period from January 1st to December 7th. So, although the year isn’t over, it gives me a pretty good idea of how I’ve spent my time this year.

    PMP #195: How I'm winding down for the year

    PMP #195: How I'm winding down for the year

    The end of the year is fast approaching and when you look back and think about everything that’s happened this year, it’s crazy how fast the time has gone by!

    As the end of the year approaches, I’m starting to think about how I want to finish off the year and prepare for 2021.

    This is what I’ve got planned so far…

    PMP #194: 8 Tips for hosting better zoom calls

    PMP #194: 8 Tips for hosting better zoom calls

    Even before 2020, I was already spending a lot of time on Zoom. Being a virtual consultant from New Zealand where 95% of my clients are overseas, it’s an app that gets a lot of usage from me.

    Then 2020 happened and everyone started working remotely and using Zoom to host family get-togethers, gym classes or to catch up with friends while on lockdown.

    According to Timing, I’ve spent 266 hours on Zoom this year. And I’m pretty sure this is under-reporting as it only counts active time (i.e. if I’m screen sharing, it’s Timing counts the active app).

    Needless to say, I’ve learned a thing or two about hosting video calls on Zoom. And in this post, I’d like to share some of the tips I’ve picked up along the way so you can host better calls.

    PMP #193: How I journal for peace of mind

    PMP #193: How I journal for peace of mind

    As I’m sure you’re aware, journaling is one of those habits that a lot of ‘successful’ (whatever that means) people seem to have adopted.

    And journalling is often presented through this lens of being a tool to help you be more successful. And I don’t have an issue with that. But for me, journaling isn’t something I do to try and be successful. For me, journaling is a tool to find peace of mind.

    In this week’s blog post, I’d like to share a few journalling methods for you to experiment with. This is by no means an exhaustive list. Just a few things I’ve tried that I’d like to share.
