Robin Sharma’s 50 New Rules of Work


You know what a sucker I am for a guru – especially a personal development guru and my new BBF is Robin Sharma, who I spoke about a few FIT Matters ago, in my Tale of Two Titans Part II blog. Best known for his international best-seller ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’ book series […]

Are you the Eagle or the Crow?


Today I’m going to speak ONLY of the GOOD NEWS that’s out there and I’m going to SHUN the naysayers & the mood-hoovers. I’m going to CELEBRATE all that’s good in my life (and yours) right now and I’m going to SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS – why? Because we all know that ATTITUDES ARE […]

A tale of two titans – Part 1


  If you’ve never heard of Anthony (Tony) Robbins, then chances are, you’re not going to be overly interested in this week’s FIT Matters. Tony’s story is an extraordinary one – as is the man himself. He had an incredibly tough upbringing, suffering at the hands of an alcoholic mother; extreme poverty – thanks in the […]

A tale of two Titans – Part 2


Just as I said last week about Tony Robbins, if you’ve never heard of Robin Sharma, the other guru I want to talk about today to conclude my Tale of Two Titans, then chances are – you’re not going to be overly interested in this week’s FIT Matters either. Robin’s story is an equally fascinating […]

Emotional Intelligence – the vital ingredient for all ages


In his book Emotional Intelligence, author Daniel Goleman suggested that EQ (Emotional Quotient) might actually be more important than IQ. Howard Gardner, developmental psychologist and creator of the Multiple Intelligences Theory may well agree. Gardner has suggested that INTELLIGENCE is not a single, linear ability. In fact, in his 1983 book ‘Frames of Mind’ he cites […]

You DON’T have to be great to get started


…although you DO have to get started to be great! The New Year hasn’t started quite as we’d planned (and boy have we planned), because while David’s COVID-19 test returned negative yesterday, he does have a rather bizarre viral infection which has left him totally wiped out and so it seems, I shall march boldly […]

As you begin the wind down this week, perhaps you’d like to reflect on this mad crazy year & begin to think about the New Year ahead – from TWO perspectives… Because being in TWO minds, especially when it comes to making plans for a bigger, better, brighter future is a REALLY good thing! I’m […]

Take a leaf out of Southgate’s book


I mean, literally – there is much we can learn from Gareth Southgate’s just-released autobiography Anything is Possible: Be Brave, Be Kind & Follow Your Dreams and we’d do well to pay attention to the England Football Team Manager this week, because he has some important lessons to share. As the footballing legend himself said: […]

Not EVERYTHING is cancelled!


They say HOPE is everything to those who have nothing – and it seems this may well be true for some, especially at this present time with all that’s happening in the world. And I’m not just talking about this crazy pandemic or the madness that two full-blown lockdowns have caused this year☹. There are […]

Who do you think you are?


The witty Irish playwright Oscar Wilde was a genius – he had a phenomenal ability to incorporate aspects of both fantasy and realism into his works. Through thoughtful imagery and realistic dialect, he successfully merged two contradicting genres into a fascinatingly morbid tale. He was said to have authored many profound quotes in his lifetime, […]
