MoxieCast 008: How to Push Yourself Without Crashing, with Christine Livingston

  Sometimes it can feel like there are two ways of working: Going full throttle (look at how much I’m getting done); and recovering (look at me doing my dead fly impression).  It’s a two-speed cycle: Wo-hoo and boo-hoo.  Overachievers, I am talkin’ to you… So how can you work hard without crashing and burning? […]

MoxieCast 007: How Motivation Happens. Mark McGuinness on Mojo, Resilience & Techno-dancing

Motivation is the holy grail of working states. We crave it; covet it. And when it’s there, that thing you want to do feels entirely doable.  Motivation is a state of creative grace.

Blog: Do You Over-Yes?

You buy books that you don’t have time to read. You’ve signed up for online courses that you never even started (yep, me too). You fantasize about sleeping for weeks. Your default response to “How are you?” is a wild-eyed “SO busy!”  Add a few arm flails for effect. You start your day feeling buried, […]

MoxieCast 004: The Mental Workout Behind the Physical One, with Charlene Hutsebaut

Behind every physical workout is a mental workout. Are you using the ‘go hard, or go home’ approach?

Moxiecast 002: Diffusing Imposter Syndrome with Emma Stroud

Do the inner fraud police live in your head?  You may recognise them as the seductively believable thoughts that whisper, ‘You’re not good enough to do this,’ or ‘You shouldn’t be here – any moment now, you’ll be found out and busted for the lame-o fraud that you are.’  Yep.  Those guys.   This unhelpful […]

My guest today is Cheri Hanson, writer, journalist and all-round creative chameleon.
