I would rather die of passion than of boredom

I would rather die of passion than of boredom

Happy Monday Highflyers!

I love this quote from Van Gogh: “I would rather die of passion than of boredom.” There’s so much to be said for being passionate about what you do, at work and in every area of your life. If you’re passionate about one or many things, there’s no time (or room) for boredom.

My hobbies, such as photography and writing, provide me with huge amounts of inspiration, and I can spend absolutely hours in my spare time engrossed in the things I love doing.

What are you most passionate about?

Have a great week!

Why I’ll be attending the next ProBlogger Training Event

A couple of weeks I ago, I attended Australia’s largest and longest running blogging event, ProBlogger Training Event 2015. Held at the RACQ Royal Pines resort on the Gold Coast, the 2-day event brought together high profile international and local speakers, and over 700 bloggers, to discuss how to grow and monetise our blogs and businesses.

Why I’ll be attending the next ProBlogger Training Event!

It was one of the most memorable, useful conferences I’ve ever been to. Based on my experience with this year’s ProBlogger experience, here’s why I’ll be attending the next Problogger Training Event. And the next…and the next…

Change is inevitable but personal growth is choice

Change is inevitable but personal growth is choice

Happy Monday Highflyers! I love this quote by Bob Proctor, “Change is inevitable but personal growth is choice”.

Change happens to us all, whether we want it to or not. We can’t control change. The only thing we can control is our response to change.

Personal growth, on the other hand, is something we can have more control over – we can choose how we want to grow, which areas of our lives we’re going to grow in, and then acquire the skills to make it happen.

Which aspect of your personal growth are you choosing to work on this week? Have a great week!

A review of Hootsuite and Hootsuite University

Streamlining social media activities is a challenge for pretty much every marketer and blogger. The better you understand the range of tools available, and the pros and cons of each, the more informed recommendations you can make in whichever company you work for.

A review of Hootsuite and Hootsuite University

Over the years, I’ve tried a number of tools – they all continue to add new features and evolve, so it’s been worth keeping an eye on them. Lately, I’ve been delving deeply into Hootsuite – and here’s what I’ve found!

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination

Happy Monday Highflyers! Albert Einstein said, “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.”

Anyone can acquire knowledge, but true creativity and imagination are innate. I believe we can train ourselves to become more imaginative – it’s about giving our mind time and space to think, to mull over and make connections. I also think it requires that we trust our thoughts and don’t censor them until they become more fully formed.

It’s a challenge to be imaginative in a hectic, noisy space. Create some peace and quiet for yourself and see where your imagination leads you.

Have a great week!
