2012 looks set to be a year of excitement and celebration in the UK. As London gears up to host the 2012 Olympic Games, the Queen will be celebrating her Diamond Jubilee and 60 years as Britain’s Monarch.

Neither the Olympic Games nor the Diamond Jubilee will happen without a great deal of hard work and preparation. What plans do you have in place to ensure your business continues to expand, whilst the economic downturn continues to spiral? It is no secret: 2012 looks set to...

The combination of cold winter weather, rushing around preparing for the Christmas festivities and fulfilling the needs of those around you can affect your health and wellbeing. Here are some great ideas that will help you to wind down so you can thoroughly enjoy the Christmas holidays.
Find some quiet time, perhaps when the children are in bed, to simply wind down and relax. Dim the lights, light some candles, play some soothing music and chill out for a while. Empty your mind of your to-do list and worries, and just take some time out to recharge your batteries. If you find...
We all understand the importance of setting goals in business. It enables you to drive your businesses forward and provides tangible targets to work towards. It is therefore good working practice to review your goals regularly: to clarify your progress, to identify what is left to do and to celebrate your achievement.
Regardless of how complex or time-consuming the attainment of your goal may be, checking in and reviewing its status will help focus your mind and readjust any plans, if necessary. It is worth doing this regularly so you can change course if other factors are delaying...
Time wasters can be extremely detrimental to your overall time management and business success. It is so easy to procrastinate over to do lists, meet up with clients for lunch or to find yourself social networking for hours on end! If you could limit the amount of time you waste on various unproductive tasks, you could find yourself with hours to spare!
Don’t leave your inbox open all the time: you will easily get distracted. Schedule just two or three dedicated time slots throughout the day to read and action e-mail correspondence.
Do you spend the first twenty...

At Christmas time, we at Empowering Mums try to put all our great techniques and tips into action: being as organised as possible, using our time effectively and enjoying quality time with our families. We simply cannot achieve all this without the help of our Christmas Checklist and this year we’d like to share it with you!
Make A List, Check It Twice!
List all the jobs you need to get done and all the things that must be bought for the big day. Not only will it free up some room for non-Christmas thoughts, it will give you a quick reference guide to refer to. Try to prioritise your...
If your to-do list appears to be never ending, then allocating deadlines could drive real results. Goals and deadlines work to motivate you towards accomplishment and success.
Deadlines are not only set by the super-organised, ruthless project manager. They are used by people who need to schedule tasks in a timely manner to ensure the job gets done. Deadlines keep you driven towards completion.
Deadlines encourage you to focus on your goals. And, when set realistically, can offer an amazing sense of achievement when a task has reached its completion.
Additionally, deadlines counteract...
November’s issue of Empower documented the achievements of two of our fantastic mums and what they believed to be their biggest accomplishments of 2011. We encourage you all to reflect on the goals or resolutions you made for 2011 and how they have been realised. It is just as important now to look ahead and start planning your goals for 2012. This is especially significant if you feel stuck in a rut, without direction or a general unhappiness about your life. Create a plan to get your life back on track by identifying and planning ways to achieve lifelong goals. Here are eight rules...
