What for, what next…

This is a response to ‘Being “Not Lonely” isn’t Enough’, which I cross-posted this week. It is a great article, and as many eloquent writings about ‘settling’, desire and deserving it all – I noticed that I had not read a good male perspective on that subject recently.

So rather than looking for something to cross-post, I looked for the closest available Man who is looking to create the relationship of his life. I found myself (and yes, that is ...

Divorce – the mother of all breakdowns

Divorce – the mother of all breakdowns

Well, not quite. According to the Holmes-Rahe stress inventory scale, it is number 2.

And in Canada (your local statistics may vary), since the end of the 1980s, between 35% and 42% of marriages have ended in divorce. In other words almost one in two people who marry will go through this experience in their lifetimes. Note that this statistic does not capture those who go through committed relationships that are not recognized as ‘marriages’, which break up with ...

How about NOW?

How about NOW?

The great thing about moments is there are lots of them – at least that is our experience. They seem to be in limitless supply. One day they will run out.

So what makes this one, right now special? important? irreplaceable?

My observation is that we discard a lot of moments out of hand – put them into the recycling (or more often the mountain of trash) in the hope that there will be a better one along in a while ...

Access to Power (and Achilles seal- a bad pun)

Access to Power (and Achilles seal- a bad pun)

This is not really a coaching blog entry. Or is it? You get to decide.

Those who know me well understand that since 2005 I have been doing strange things with old Vegetable Oil.

I have been steeped in the science of climate change and greenhouse gas impacts for a long time courtesy of my father – Graham Goodeve – a geomorphologist by trade who, whilst I was growing up, fed my curiosity about the physical processes at work in the world ...

What does Commitment mean to you?

What does Commitment mean to you?

I Love this image. Apart from the imagination moving to what is going to happen next – a muddy landing, a splash, and someone getting the ball – it shows extraordinary inspired action in process.

Take the imagination out of it – projecting what the next moment will be – and what are you left with? Inspired action!. From this vantage point does it even matter what the end result is?

From that vantage point I see something that says a lot ...

Authentic Power

…does not look like what you think.

It is almost silent, perhaps not very obvious – but it is clear when it is present. Stuff just gets done! And not just ordinary day-to-day stuff; this is the shoot, to the bud, to the flower movement. Transformation. The world changes. And here is the magic – BECAUSE YOU SAID SO.

When we set our minds to a goal two things happen; the Universe gets on our side and starts presenting opportunities, ideas, openings, ...

Are you ready?..

Yes. Period.

Ready is a disempowering story. I will be ready when I have … X, Y, Z …

The fact of the matter is that you are here now, on this planet, with the tools, skills, knowledge and resources that you have, including a limited and diminishing number of tomorrows in which to make the difference and create the life you were born to have.

So, I assert, you are ready. Ready to take on life and challenge the stories ...

(re)-invention

In my timezone there are 80 hours of 2014 left. There has been a lot that has happened this last year; intended and unintended. All experience. All an opportunity to learn. All a gift. It will not come again. It was the playground, the school room, the chrysalis from which 2015 will burst.

And regret is an anchor to the past I can do without. Forgiveness is the means I with which I will dissolve the chain.

And 2015 is all to ...

Running out of tomorrows…

Running out of tomorrows…

I am currently in the UK with my birth family. I left on short notice to be with them in my Mothers’ last few days. She died on tuesday morning after a long illness.

Over the last weeks I have experienced the powerful Woman I knew as she rallied, then fell again and entered terminal decline. I was there for the last breath; as she left. Her life has been a gift up to the last moment – and it keeps on giving.

I woke ...
