I should be so lucky …

Are you inherently ‘lucky’ or ‘unlucky’? With our competition on the go to win 2 tickets to our upcoming workshops in Canberra, Sydney and Newcastle, we thought it might be a good time to talk about luck. Here’s an excerpt from our book, I Don’t Have Time: “British psychologist Richard Wiseman conducted a 10-year study on luck. He followed…

If only …

One of our dear friends is in Paris as we write this. She’s never been away from her children for more than a night or two, since her eldest was born, eleven years ago. A few months ago, she saw an amazing travel deal come into her inbox, and said to her husband, on a…

You think time is running out, but it isn’t. Here’s why.

An article by Jenna Price on her 60th birthday reminded readers that there is still plenty of time to accomplish the things we want to achieve, and no need to feel rushed. To women in their 30s and 40s, she had this advice: ‘I wish I’d known [that at 60] I’d still be working hard…

We have an important misconception to clear up!

We had an email last week from someone who said something about the work/school holidays juggle and how ‘it doesn’t seem to be going quite as smoothly for me as it sounds like it does for you’. Er, no. Let’s clear this up right away. School holidays and the juggle between work and home are…

Why we’re torn about the New Year and what we’re going to do about it

You know those scenes in apocalyptic disaster movies, where everyone scrambles through obstacles and scrapes through to the final scene and finds that, miraculously, they’re still standing — covered in mud and bruises and tears and perusing the world from a mountain top, with everything they knew and understood left in flames behind them? That’s…

It’s all too hard

Don’t you wish you had a magic wand, or a ‘fast forward’ button sometimes? There are situations we don’t want to be in. Things we wish we could undo. Paths we find ourselves on where we feel lost or unsure and question the choices we made that led us there. There are things we want…

Why Audrey was mortified!

Our editor sent us a snippet of the index from our upcoming book, I Don’t Have Time! 15-minute Ways to Shape a Life You’ll Love. It tells you all you need to know about the type of book we’ve written, and Audrey is wrestling with her mortification about the opening entry. 😉 Whenever we write…

The end of the road for My 15 Minutes?

On the Monday that we had a publisher’s deadline to return the authors’ feedback to the editor of our upcoming book, we’d joked on Facebook about spending the entire week in our pyjamas. No plans. No excuses. Just 100% focus on the work at hand. A friend asked how we were intending to deal with…

To the man I love …

Two weeks ago tomorrow, the fabric was ripped from my universe. I lost my darling husband, Jeff, suddenly, unexpectedly and inconceivably. There is much I want to say about how I have survived the worst two weeks of my life — most of it involves being carried by my sister, friends and even strangers, when…

Why we won’t make the most of every moment

It popped up again on a friend’s Facebook post this week. She’d mentioned moving her toddler into his first ‘big boy bed’ and one of her friends told her to ‘enjoy every moment’. She went on to spend two hours settling him to sleep, and was woken several times overnight. Near her in the news…
