It is no longer just about being better, because that is short-lived, it is about being different but that is where the challenges start.
In a time when many people are struggling, there are also people and businesses that have taken up the challenge to succeed and in fact flourish, and in many instances that is because they have decided to create something that is different.
Now, it is not easy to be different. It takes a willingness to discard the things and ideas that are obsolete. It can often draw criticism from others. It will certainly make us challenge all of our preconceived thoughts and actions and it will require us to be brave enough to trust ourselves.
So, in this time when all the changes we are having to make are just moving us to a new way of operating that is the same as everyone else and no longer different, what are you actually doing differently that will set you apart?
It is so exhilarating to release our minds to play with different ideas and concepts. To allow ourselves to go to a place where there are no filters and no judgements and come out the other side excited about what could be.
So, my challenge to all of us this week is to get you to take 30 minutes out of your busy life, not to think about what is, but rather what could be, because it is a mindset.
What single change could you or your business make that could set you apart!
What single change could you make in your life that would make you feel better and bring you joy.
We are all capable of thinking this way and so I encourage you this week to recognise that we deserve to be successful if we are prepared to rewire our minds and not settle for mediocrity.
Have a wonderful and different week. I would love to hear about some of your ideas and thoughts. Email me on email@example.com

This week saw the completion of our Multi-session program - HR Essentials For Leaders, facilitated by our Lead Educators, Korrine Jones and Nathan Browne. An amazing program that explains how HR works in the role of the everyday leader. Congratulations to all of the participants.
Check out this awesome recipe by our Head of Digital and Design - Joe Stuart. It looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it. Joe promotes himself as a good cook and if this is one of his creations then I think he is right.
Just another thing to make me COVID-19 fatter!

Enjoy! If you have a sweet tooth, feel free to add in some sugar to the mixture and the crust but the process of baking the pumpkin should make it sweet enough.
