Ready to Bloom will be two years old next January, and it’s gone through a lot of changes along the way. It started out when I began my journey in coaching and NLP, and it gradually evolved into what it is today: a 30 day program to work toward authentic happiness. Most of my original posts focus on time management, primarily because one of my very first posts was picked up by Freshly Pressed and received an amazing amount of visits in just 24 hours. That post continues to be my top article to this day, with almost 7,500 views…even after changing the domain this year, meaning that the entire blog had to be re-indexed. I was fairly obsessed with time management at that time, and I continued to hone my techniques for prioritizing tasks and getting things done, sharing my experiences and tips here on this blog.

And then I focused on wellness or wellbeing, and what I saw as the nine aspects of wellness: emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, physical, professional, social, spiritual, and sexual. You’ll still find that some of my blog posts are classified under one or more of these wellness categories. […]

Where am I? Top 3 Areas to Improve

It’s time to take a look at your Wheel of Life once again. If it’s been a couple of months since you filled out yours, download a fresh Wheel of Life and re-assess things. Remember, life changes, so it can be very useful to do this exercise a few times a year. Next, re-assess your priorities. Again, if it’s been a while, do this exercise all over again. Life changes (I will never tire of saying that), and our priorities change.

The “Where am I?” question is all about where you are in your life, at this time, in this present moment. That means that your answers to “Where am I?” will change on a regular basis…even from day to day. That doesn’t mean you have to do the “Where […]

Where am I? Priorities

SO sorry about my extended absence. So, to recap: we’re onto the second happiness question: Where are you? Meaning, where are you in your life? In this area, you can clearly identify what’s right and what’s wrong for you: which things you like and which things don’t like, which things you want to keep and which things you want to change.

Sound good? Since we’re just about to start a new year, I thought it would be appropriate for us to take a stock at where we are in life.

So, take a look back at your Wheel of Life. If it’s been a couple of months since you filled out yours, download a fresh Wheel of Life and re-assess things. Remember, life changes, so it can be useful […]

Where am I? Wheel of life

Now we’re onto the second happiness question: Where are you? That means: where are you in life? This is where you can clearly identify what’s right and what’s wrong for you: the things you like and don’t like, the things you want to keep and the things you want to change.

You may have done the Wheel of Life or balance wheel before, but as with other types of exercises, it’s a good idea to do this on a regular basis. Life changes, and it’s useful to notice how things have improved.

So, how does your life currently rank on a scale of one to ten in the following areas: career, family, finance, health/wellness, personal growth, self expression, social life, spirituality/religion? Analyse how your life is going in […]

Cómo vas con las metas de año nuevo?

Ya estamos en abril…cómo vas con las metas de año nuevo?

Todos sabemos qué es: Un compromiso que una persona hace para trabajar en pos de una meta personal, proyecto o cambio de estilo de vida durante el año venidero. Esas metas de año nuevo pueden tener que ver con mejorar actitudes, hábitos, salud, finanzas, carrera, educación…prácticamente cualquier cosa que tenga que ver con el desarrollo persona y/o profesional.

Una encuesta realizada en el 2007 (link en inglés), a cargo del psicólogo británico Richard Wiseman, mostró que el 88% de las metas de año nuevo terminan en fracaso. Por qué sucede esto?. Parece ser que la parte del cerebro que en su mayor parte está relacionada con la fuerza de voluntad es también la parte que se ocupa de mantenernos enfocados, manejando la memoria a corto plazo y resolviendo problemas abstractos. Quizá el añadir una larga lista de tareas adicionales a sus ya grandes responsabilidades, es demasiado!

Quizá una manera más efectiva de encarar estas cuestiones, sea tomar decisiones y metas de a poquito, es decir, paso a paso…una a la vez. La vida es un camino, y la única manera de recorrerlo (sanamente) es dando un paso a la vez (no se puede correr sin haber aprendido a caminar correctamente). En vez de abrumarte con una larga lista de cosas que quieres conseguir sin antes establecer prioridades o fechas para cada una de tus metas, quizá lo mejor sea tomar esa lista, y establecer un orden de importancia (o prioridades).

Cada uno tiene su preferencia. Algunos prefieren escribirla  a mano, otros en la computadora. Lo bueno de trabajar con la PC es que puedes copiar y pegar fácilmenete para re-ordenar tu lista. Ambas maneras valen.

How are you doing with your New Year's resolutions?

Life is a path, and the only way to go down it is by taking one step at a time.

We’re nearing the end of January…how are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions?

We all know what a New Year’s resolution is: a commitment that a person makes to work toward a personal goal, project, or lifestyle change throughout the year. New Year’s resolutions can work toward improving attitudes, habits, health, finances, career, education… pretty much anything that’s related to personal or professional development.

A 2007 survey conducted by the British psychologist Richard Wiseman showed that 88% of all resolutions end in failure. Why is this? It seems that the part of the brain which is largely responsible for willpower is also that part that takes care of keeping us focused, managing short-term memory, and working out abstract problems. Adding a long list of additional tasks to its current responsibilities may be asking a bit too much.

A more effective way of going about things might be to take resolutions and goals little by little. Life is a path, and the only way to go down it is by taking one step at a time. Rather than overwhelming yourself with a long list of things you want to accomplish without setting priorities or dates for each one, you might want to take that list and prioritise it.

Hi there and welcome to this blog!

I’m Holly Worton, and I’m passionate about helping people achieve their personal and professional best. After years of owning my own company, I’ve realised that my purpose in life is to help people achieve their highest potential and live the best life for them.

The two things I love doing the most are helping people and writing. So this blog will give me the […]
