The season is changing, and we are nearly halfway through the year.

The last few weeks I have caught myself focusing on what I have planned, but did not get done the past 5 months. It left me frustrated and even more unproductive.

I realised it is time to make a few changes.

Here is what you can do to Refocus and Re-energise

1.Make a list of what would you really love to get done by the end of this year. Ask yourself:

  • What are my 3 biggest priorities for the rest of the year?
  • What significant difference would each one make in your life
  • What one thing would I regret if I did not get it done by the end of the Why is this so important to you?
  • What is the MOST important thing I want to complete?

2.Revisit your daily routine. Shifting things around a little will bring new energy. Ask yourself:

  • Where can I change the order of the things I do. E.g. Go for a run in the afternoon instead of gym in the morning.
  • What new routine or ritual can I start E.g. Add meditation to my day or drink more herbal tea.

3.Organise your desk and revive  your workspace

  • Move things on your desk/workspace around to make your life easier.
  • Go through those heaps of paper, sort and file everything to the last page.
  • Put up some fresh inspirational images or quotes around your desk (check out

4.Change one self-sabotaging habit

Where do you sabotage yourself on a daily basis? For example, I used to check my email first thing in the morning and often only look at my “To Do” list around  10am.  I swopped those around and all of a sudden I am much more productive. What could you do differently or stop doing?
