Regardless of your age and stage, the best investment you can ever make is in yourself. It’s impossible to stretch yourself, change direction, or to be or have more, if you don’t step outside your comfort zone, take responsibility for the quality of your life, crystalize what it is you want, develop a plan of how you’ll get to where you want to go, and take massive action to make it happen. The good news is – you can do it! You can take control of your destiny, create your future, and live the life you want.
“We must do what scares us.
Will you take that plunge – leap that leap?
What will you do with you one wild and previous life”?
Mary Oliver, ‘The Summer Day’

Managing Your Mindset – Is your mindset working for you, or against you?
We all have a set of beliefs that influence how we:
- Think, question, learn and make sense of the world around us.
- Feel in various situations/circumstances.
- Identify, interpret, and respond to opportunities and challenges as they arise.
- Communicate with ourselves, about ourselves – our inner dialogue on just about everything, whether positive or negative.
- Interact with others – family, friends, and the wider community.
- Make choices on what we do, what we’ll learn, what groups we’ll join etc.
Inevitably there is a connection between our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Clearly your mindset matters a great deal. In this thought provoking short course, you will have the opportunity to challenge your mindset and take a fresh look at possibilities for the future.
This 60-minute workshop can be conducted online or face-to-face. Details are available on request. Contact me firstname.lastname@example.org

Retirement Reinvented – Community workshop
In your middle years, working, retired or somewhere in between? What’s next? Life is about much more than work or leisure, but most of us have given little thought to what “retirement” might mean. It’s difficult to speculate what may happen in the future – but we can be proactive and take control. This course offers insights into how to make the most of our time once we’re less focused on career and/or childrearing. It covers many of the issues people face when considering a move from current employment to a different lifestyle that includes more time to do the things, we’ve always promised ourselves we’d do – “when we retire”.
This popular 6-hour community workshop is held regularly as part of Wellington High School’s Community Education Programme. The next workshop is scheduled for Saturday 4th March 2023. To reserve your place register online Retirement Reinvented – Wellington High School Community Education Centre (cecwellington.ac.nz)
Retire Inspired – Introductory Community workshop
Globally the population is ageing. In New Zealand a fifth of the population will be aged 65 or over by 2034, and this number is growing. The potential to live extended, healthier, lifespans is creating new life stages and opportunities for everyone. This is changing our perspective on ageing. There is no official retirement age in NZ, although there are a few exceptions. One in four Super annuitants are currently choosing to remain in the workplace. Later life can be the most creative, productive and fulfilling part of your life. What does it look like to you? Take the time to refresh your mindset, reignite your life and re-envision the future and what that might hold?
These workshops are available to workplaces that genuinely value diversity and want their staff and their businesses to flourish into the future. Details are available on request. Contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
