Me? A procrastinator? I’ll prove you wrong someday. Just you wait and see.

As referred to in last week’s blog, a post on good old procrastination. My number 1 enemy. When thinking about what I need to include in this post, I looked up some definitions of the word and found the following: Cambridge Dictionary: To keep delaying something that must be done, often because it is unpleasant …

What would you do if it were guaranteed there would be no negative consequences?

Firstly, if there are any hip young readers casting an eye at this, the title doesn’t refer to a scenario similar to that depicted in the 2013 movie The Purge, set in a near-future America which celebrates an annual national holiday in which all crime becomes legal for a 12-hour period! The title refers to …

Post number 100! Creating momentum.

So, here we are. In what seems like the blink of an eye, this is post number 100 for Yes, You Can Do It. 100 posts since I took that nervous first step back on the 5th May 2019. 100 posts where I have, at times, bared my soul for all to see. If you’d …

I’ve previously written about aging and how much time we have in our lives and I’ve been thinking about that again recently, not least because yet another year has passed and we’re already, seemingly in the blink of an eye, 1 month into 2021.

Coping mechanisms – stepping out of my comfort zone

I’ve previously written about a number of coping mechanisms I use to deal with anxiety and a lack of confidence / low self-esteem, including music (link here), motivational quotes (link here), and listening to podcasts (link here).
