2. Delegate - Alleviate

Tuesday, November 07, 2017


There's an old saying; "If you want something done properly, do it yourself" There's no doubt that in some cases this is true. However, someone else said; "I have so much to do, that I'm going to bed" Sometimes, life can be so overwhelming, we just want to stop. 

Sometimes, doing things yourself is good strategy, but there are other times getting help can be smart. If you’re struggling to get everything done it may simply mean you've got too much to do, or that you are trying to do things you don't have the skills or aptitude for.

It can be good management to bring in specialists who will do the job quickly and efficiently - and there are other reasons and circumstances when delegating is beneficial.

Delegating a job can be a well-deserved reward. An occasional baby-sitter, cleaner, gardener or ironing helper can be a gift from heaven. Then there are times it’s a good idea to get someone else do a task for us because it is empowering for them. If they offer, let them do it. If they don't offer, ask them. Remember the adage, "Give a person a fish and they eat for a day, teach them to fish and they eat for life". 

Other times you just have to let go and ask the children or partner to do some of the chores. Great teams are made up of members who play their own part the best they can, as well as help each other when needed.

Remember, the key to successful delegating is clear communication. Give enough instructions to make the job achievable and then trust the person you have asked to do it for you.

Here’s a great delegation tip. Give part of the job of managing behaviour in your classes or home to the children. You’ll be pleasantly surprised how soon they will understand and use the iKi Rulz and how effective they are.

What can happen when you try to BE EVERYTHING!

Monday, June 12, 2017

WARNING: This is what happens when you try and be everything for everybody all of the time!!


SYMPTOMS: Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Restless legs, Raising Head, Irritability, Irrationality, Uncontrollable Emotions, Unexplainable Outbursts. And that's just whats going on on the inside!


You've got to ask it really worth it!

People often say to me "You're so organised, you are so good at everything, how do you do it all?"...
The truth... By lying to myself about what is really OK and what is really acceptable and allowing myself to think that anything less would somehow make me weak, or inferior or ineligible...

How can we ever be the true, fair dinkum, authentic, stable and sustainable models we wish to be for our children when we allow external influences such as social media, friends, social groups, blogs, books, magazines, tv and radio to rule our lives and how we perceive we should be.

All that does is leads us to a deep dark place where we can no longer function and find ourselves curled up in a ball unable to complete even the simplest tasks because our energy bucket is empty...we gave it all away... and to who? Not our children, or our family who matter most. Unfortunately in all our effort to be "the best" or "the perfect" - they actually quite often end up with the dregs.

So this morning as I sit here feeling overwhelmed again by the precedence Ive set myself and how Ill possibly keep up the "perfect" charade another day..I say.. Treat YOURSELF the way you would want OTHERS to treat THEMSELVES - with kindness, fairness, nurturing, realism, practicality and love. Listen to the advice you're giving others. If its good enough for them....

Give yourself a break, take heed, breathe and get back in touch with you and maybe drop a few of those balls you've got up there in the air. Otherwise you might end up looking like the crazy lady in this picture!! Xx
