What do you do when you don't know what to do?

 - BUT you don't have time to learn new things...

You can't tell anyone what's going on, because if anyone found out that you're not on top of everything then they might:

a) Call you a failure

b) Tell everyone you're a failure, and

c) Then when everyone finds out you'll be laughed at and most likely fired.

You'll also end up homeless, friendless, your family will disown you and you'll have to live in a shoe (line from a childhood story).

On top of that you actually do have a plan, but what if you're wrong?!


“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again,

expecting a different result"

Have you heard the parable about the donkey that fell in a well?

There was once a  farmer who loved this donkey so much and was deeply saddened to find out that he was trapped at the bottom of an old disused well.

For 2 days he did everything he could think of to get the donkey out but nothing worked and no one in the village could help either.

With every day that passed the donkey got more and more distressed, on the third day with much sadness and regret the farmer decided it would be kinder to bury the donkey.

He grabbed his shovel and began the job of filling in the well with his friends from the village.

The donkey having no idea what was going on shook off each shovel full of earth that fell on him and took a step up, after a few hours the hole began to fill and the donkey found himself getting closer to the light.

After several hours the farmer looked in and was amazing to see what the donkey had been doing.

In fact it only took another hour for the donkey to be able to step out of the well and trott away.

The people from the village where delighted and the moral of the story; life will throw dirt on you, the trick is to shake it off and to step up.

"Great email!  Yesterday you were top of my inbox.  I read the first line (Stop checking your emails…) then logged out of emails set my timer for an hour and wrote my marketing strategy and blog planner for the year.  Super productive.  In the afternoon I got a call from one of my dream clients who had found me because I'd finally posted blog on LinkedIn which had been a to-do for a week!

Thanks for doing what you do, it makes such a difference"


Having been in business for 16 years, one of the greatest challenge has always been time management.

Having attended Abigail's workshop, along with one of my managers, I can only emphasise how well her workshop gets across what we CAN do.  We do not have to be a slave to time, we can, by using Abigail's teachings, make time work for us.

I had the privilege of meeting Abigail before she had written her book and was still in the corporate world.  Abigail is true testament that if you implement what she has learnt, and now teaches, you will move you career, business and life in the direction of where you want to get.

Thanks Abigail, to all that read this, take the time to attend Abigail's events, it's a no brainier.

I had the true pleasure to take part of Abigail's Workshop on Lead Don't Follow. The content around Self-Leadership, Lifestyle and Legacy was really thought-provoking and inspiring. It made me reflect and at the same time gave me pragmatic tools in order to get into action after the session. What made the real difference was Abigail´s way of delivering the workshop. It shows she really enjoys what she does, this is contagious. Abigail keeps the audience in her hands throughout the entire workshop. She does this via her authentic style, daring to display vulnerability and shares very openly what made her to what she is today. The audience in the workshop must not have been easy to impress, consisting of very experienced international trainers and coaches.
I have also experienced Abigail is a great coach, showing true interest in others development with clear and precise questions.

I am happy to give Abigail my best recommendations.

Abigail's 30 day growth builder program helped me put together my plan of action and how I was going to accomplish my goals. Over the 30 days she helped me stay accountable to my plans and I was able to accomplish those goals.

It also helped build a rhythm for me to stay accountable to my goals on an ongoing basis.
