Protect your magic time…!

Stefan Wissenbach

We all have our own magic time of the day. By this I mean the time in the day when we are at our best and we perform most effectively. For some, it’s early in the morning and for others it certainly is not (you know who I mean – the person that needs 3 or 4 cups of coffee and a few hours under their belt before they’re vaguely human!) Some people do their best work at the end of…

Change for the better?

Stefan Wissenbach

Do what you’ve always done and you’ll get what you’ve always got… Unless you want to rely on luck, the only way to change your outcomes is to change your behaviours. We live in an ever-changing world but change isn’t something to be frightened of. When you embrace change and seek to change for the better, it’s an empowering way to live. Change happens around us all the time. Better and more effective ways of doing things are brought to…

How to discover treasure and have a lot of fun…

Stefan Wissenbach

Remember childhood stories about pirates of the high seas?  What were they always after? …That’s right, treasure! And before sailing off to find it, what did they need? …That’s right, a map! Whilst the treasure was the most valuable thing they sought, you could argue that the map was equally valuable as they couldn’t find treasure without it! This is why folklore is full of stories about treasure maps where X marks the spot. But now we’ve grown up, the…

Coming soon – MagicMobile™

Stefan Wissenbach

For the last few days I’ve been playing with the latest prototype of our MagicMobile app on my iPhone while I’m with our digital agency in Chicago – it’s amazing!  Everyone I’ve shown it to has asked me when they can get it and the answer’s ‘soon’.  I’ve had great fun adding goals and actions, taking photos which I then upload to my goals and also playing around with my Magic Number on the go. In future versions you’ll also…

Focus on outputs before inputs…

Stefan Wissenbach

If you want to get something done, achieve a goal, complete a big task or project, it’s always smart to focus on the outputs before the inputs. By outputs, I mean how you will feel, the benefits which will arise, the results. The inputs are deciding who has to do what, by when and getting to task. Being output focused first creates energy, momentum and enthusiasm. It helps creativity and problem solving. It makes you smarter. Jim Rohn famously said…

The power of accountability…

Stefan Wissenbach

In the working environment people are normally accountable to a person or group of people and this is often helpful in making things happen. However, when setting out to improve an aspect of their lives or achieve something they’ve wanted to do for a long time, people are seldom accountable to anyone other than themselves – and as a result they lose momentum and fail to achieve what they want in life. Sharing an important goal with a trusted friend or…

The power of authenticity…

Stefan Wissenbach

What does it mean to be authentic?  The dictionary defines it as being not false or copied, genuine, real. It’s a wonderful character trait. To be regarded as being authentic causes those around you to trust and respect you and makes you more likeable because people believe that what they see is what they get. It’s also less stressful to be authentic because you don’t have to keep up appearances and pretend to be something or someone that you’re not. I…
