Educator / Consultant / Motivational Speaker / Author & Writer / Media & Communications Specialist.My daughter was born in January 2016 and I developed post-natal depression (which I did not know men could get) and I realised I had been struggling with anxiety and depression my whole life. The fight back was intense, but I learnt many skills and techniques to manage it. I realised that I, like many of us, had been living a life of fear. We stay on the sidelines instead of chasing our dreams. My mission is now to help make the world a better place and encourage others to go from farm boy to Jedi.
History repeats itself. That’s why you’re reluctant to take any action in the present without first understanding the lessons of the past. While the present can be a confusing cacophony of conflicting demands, looking back brings order this chaos, revealing insights into behaviors and decisions. You’re an effective employee because you understand how projects came to be and why clients are driven by specific needs. You’re a better teammate because you take the time to learn your coworkers’ histories. Your need for context, however, can slow down your decision making process. Some might accuse you of being “stuck in the past” or constantly rehashing what’s already happened at the expense of forward momentum.
