Merry Christmas!

Stefan Wissenbach

Tomorrow is Christmas Day, and I wanted to write and thank all of you who have been following my blog and wish you a very Happy Christmas!  There’s a lot of excitement in our house, with my wife, three children and a new puppy all looking forward to Christmas and time with family and friends.  Burton Hillis once said “The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each…

How happy holidays make happy years!

Stefan Wissenbach

I love this time of year!  Yesterday I spent the day in London, Christmas shopping and noticed how upbeat and cheerful everyone was, embracing the holiday spirit.  I know for many it’s been a challenging year, so it’s nice to to see lots of happy people.  The holiday season and Christmas is about friends and family, warmth and good cheer – and it’s also a great time to reflect on the year that’s ending and think about the year ahead.  No matter how bad…

How a Young Man Achieves His Goals and Travels the World!

I’ve just returned from a wonderful trip to Chicago, where I’ve been spending time with the great people working with me to develop magicnumber.com.   I enjoyed many experiences during my visit – a magical time with my wife and friends celebrating her birthday, wisdom from my coach and fellow entrepreneurs, some of Chicago’s fantastic restaurants and working with my team on the exciting new magicnumber goals planning tool coming in January! I got to spend some time with Tim,…

Overcome the fear – it’s energising and fun…

Earlier this week I was speaking with an old friend of mine, David. I met David many years ago when he was manager of a 5 star London hotel.  He was hardworking and good at his job. So much so that a hotel guest offered him a job and David left the UK to work in Sweden in a very highly paid role – he effectively doubled his income overnight – a situation most would love! As we were speaking,…

Today I’m excited to be traveling to Chicago, via Zurich, to meet the Magic Number team as we prepare for the launch of some great tools at magicnumber.com to help people “take control, achieve more and love life.” I was therefore very pleased to read an article in today’s Daily Mail, which explains that as the economy falters, millions of Britons are becoming more self reliant. About time! The way that individuals make progress is by taking responsibility for improving…

Work mixed with play makes Jack a dull boy!

Stefan Wissenbach

In England there’s a saying – all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. It’s totally true. People who spend all their time and energy into working tend to lack balance in their lives and don’t make the best people to be sat next to at dinner parties! It’s important to have balance but it’s also important to have focus – hence work mixed with play makes Jack a dull boy! My coach once encouraged me to think…

A little bit of fun goes a long way…

Stefan Wissenbach

Sometimes life can be tough and a lot of people find themselves living lives of quiet desperation.  They do the same things day after day and deep down they are not truly happy. I’ve said many times that to effect big changes in life, you have to start with something small. Life is about living and if you’ve got fun things to look forward to then that can often help you deal with the difficulties life throws at us from…
