On and on they go. Mindset gremlins, worming their way through our mental to-dos, creating doubt. Fanning fear. Telling us exactly what they know is going to trip us up, and keeping us smaller and safer and tucked more tightly into our comfort zones than we really want to be.

It’s infuriating not getting on with things. Not doing what we plan. Holding back. Focusing on things that don’t matter nearly as much as the big stuff that would propel us so much further forward in our lives in all the areas that mean the most to us.

We’ve a list of nearly 200 secret self-doubts collected in our Gremlins Workshops from people just like us, who thought there was nobody just like them, because we all appear to be involved in an unofficial mass cover-up that has led us to believe that other people have their acts together.

They don’t.

We don’t.

The ducks will never line up. Finding out ‘it’s not just me!’ is not only liberating — it’s the first step in getting on with things despite our doubts. Big things that we owe ourselves to get on with in our health and relationships, careers and finances, families and more …

Maybe you’ve already tried to get on top of this.

You’ve read time-management books or blogs or articles or you’ve gone on motivational courses. Maybe you’ve even bought our My 15 Minutes program and have been annoyed with yourself that you haven’t followed through on it yet. Perhaps things have worked for a while and then you’ve found yourself slipping back into the old habits you were desperate to break …

It’s disheartening when you just can’t seem to rally the motivation you need to stick with things and make the leaps and bounds you promised yourself. We’ve been there too and we kept getting stuck, right up until the moment we learned to stop hauling ourselves into the imaginary principal’s office every time we messed up, and be gentle with ourselves, instead.

It’s okay to have slipped up. It’s not the fall that counts. It’s the way we rise from it, and what we do next in each moment of every day that really matters …

There’s a big difference between slipping up and giving up.

You’re going to feel overwhelmed. You’re going to want to procrastinate. You’re going to strive for perfection. You’ll compare yourself to others. You’ll feel like an imposter. You’ll fail and fear failing. You might even fear success… You’ll feel all of this, and you’ll need to make a choice.

Am I going to let this stuff stop me?

Because, lying beyond the roadblocks these gremlins create in our minds, there is something you want. A lot.

Not finding a way through and striving for it consistently is going to hurt. Deeply.

  • What if you could feel anxious and do things anyway?
  • What if you could feel overwhelmed, and still get on with things?
  • What if you could fear failure but take risks regardless?

What if success wasn’t about mastering a text-book mindset — never procrastinating, never perfecting, never giving into overwhelm. What if it was about learning how to live with the gremlins that will hang around and stir up trouble like rebellious teens behind the bike sheds in our minds, no matter how much progress we make.

Even the most successful people deal with gremlins. It’s just that they’ve learnt the art of keeping these doubts on a low hum in the background while they forge ahead anyway.

Join us?

Our two-hour workshop will have you laughing, crying and — best of all — realising you are NOT the only one wondering why you’re not further ahead, more organised, more confident, fitter, happier, more satisfied in your relationships, in a stronger place financially, more patient, more relaxed, more ambitious … more of all the things you want the most.

  • Learn how to recognise what’s holding you back, and how to push past these gremlins to achieve the goals you set
  • Understand what it’s costing you to let them win, and where to draw the line
  • Embrace the power of small steps and get more things done
  • Feel empowered to move through tasks more quickly
  • Learn about an actionable, motivating and achievable way of creating goals and maintaining positive momentum

What People Say About This Workshop!

Absolutely amazing and totally hits home!

It was great to get time out to think about these things. To think about goals and how I am spending my time.

My favourite bit was hearing everyone's gremlins - I nearly cried and was shaking. Huge relief!

Open, good fun, emotionally challenging (in a good way).

Fantastic speakers with very resonating content. I took a lot away from this session.

Very engaging and great tips. Relevant, practical advice.

Wonderful opportunity for self-reflection.

It was uplifting and spot on!

Thanks for an awesome session! My colleague and I [who attended] are at work at the moment and have been discussing it. We both got lots out of it!

Loved it!

Your questions answered ...

  • q-iconI don't live in Adelaide. Will you be offering this workshop anywhere else?

    Yes, we will be travelling around Australia in 2017 speaking at events to promote our upcoming book, and will look for opportunities to offer this workshop in other capital cities.

  • q-iconI have (or haven't) bought your program, is this still worthwhile for me?

    The workshop stands alone from the My 15 Minutes program, though is complementary to it.

  • q-iconCompared with other workshops, this is inexpensive - is it going to be a 'sales fest'?

    We’ve been to events like that, where the ticket price is low, but the event turns out to be a sales pitch. We loathe it! No, this workshop will deliver 2 hours of high value content and resources. We will mention our My 15 Minutes program and you will have an opportunity to purchase it if you wish, but the workshop itself is ‘self contained’ and content-rich.

  • q-iconWhat's included in the ticket price?

    You’ll receive the workshop, templates and resources, a ‘goodie bag’ packed with surprises, refreshments on arrival and a drink at the ‘after party’.

  • q-iconI can't make it on that date. Will you be running this workshop again?

    We suspect so, but do not currently have future dates planned for Adelaide.

  • q-iconWhat's your refund policy?

    Tickets are non-refundable but transferable.

  • q-iconIs there a group discount?

    Yes … the more the merrier! Come in a group of 5+ and receive 10% discount on the total ticket investment. Just drop us a line at and we can organise your group tickets.

  • q-iconI don't like going to networking events on my own. Will I feel welcome?

    We see this workshop as an opportunity to help foster new connections within the Adelaide community. We’ll ensure that you feel welcome and get to meet new people.

  • q-iconWill there be role-playing?

    Ha! Great question! Some people love role-playing but we’re not really into it, so no. 🙂

  • q-iconWhat do I wear?

    Feel free to come straight from work, or get changed on the way. Anything goes.

  • q-iconHow's this different from other workshops?

    The feedback we receive consistently is that our workshops are the best people have attended. The content is very ‘real’. We’re open and vulnerable and include a strong mix of storytelling and practical action. We want you to walk out with a smile, thinking ‘that was time well invested’ and remember this workshop for a long time afterwards.
