The M Powerer

'The M Powerer', our monthly e-newsletter, goes out in the middle of each month to a growing list of subscribers.

It is purposefully a quick read and covers all of the areas that M Power is involved in - communication, empowerment, individual effectiveness, organisational productivity, customer service, life balance and more.

'The M Powerer' was called 'm news' for five years and changed to mark M Power's fifth birthday in July 2006.

You can subscribe to the 'The M Powerer' by providing your name and email address on 'Subscribe to our newsletter' box on the right-hand side.

Palm trees and margaritas

'Palm trees and margaritas', our newsletter about life, the universe and what really matters, is published on the last Friday of every month.

Think of this as a five minute 'time out' each month, just to pause and reflect about how you are doing in the scheme of things. Hopefully, there will be the occasional smirk or even giggle in it too.

I am at the beginning of the second half of my life, all going to plan. I am 41. With three kids at three different schools, football five times a week, various music lessons, medical appointments, a house to run and a career as a speaker, consultant and writer, I figure I know the 'balls in the air' life as well as anyone.

I have always been an optimist, sometimes excruciatingly so, and I try to find the gold lining (forget silver) in everything. What can I learn from this? How can I see this as a gift? I did say it could be excruciating! But my stage of life means - sadly - that my peers are getting medical problems and living with them or dying from them. Some have nothing wrong with their health but their 'just coasting' approach to life means they may as well have.

There is no gift in the disappointments of life or the failures of the human body other than the cliched reminder to 'seize the day'.

Life can't be all palm trees and margaritas, but there are worse game plans. It doesn't have to be all work and no play - to use another cliche - either.

This monthly missive is made up of tips, stories and reflections on seizing the day, or not, and on punctuating your life with palm trees and margaritas, whatever that means to you.
