We don't know what we don't know and that intrigues me. We live in a highly complex, interconnected, interdependent, interrelated world. Life is so complex that we will probably never completely understand it, yet I'm a great believer in elegantly simple solutions. I'm an advocate of open space technology and making the complex less complex, the tough stuff not so tough, &, putting the unreachable within the reach of everyone. I'm also a great believer in getting the midfield right. In addition, I'm author of ‘Uncovering Mindfulness: In Search Of A Life More Meaningful’ available on Amazon and from www.bookboon.com; the ‘Coffee & A Cup of Mindfulness’ series, the ‘Mindful Hacks For Mindful Living & Mindful Working’series, &, the 'From Mindfulness With Love'series which is also available on YouTube. I work with business leaders, organisations and individuals in support of change, leadership excellence and introducing Mindfulness and write about all of that stuff too. As well as Wellbeing and Well doing.

On the Japanese island of Okinawa, which prior to 2000 had the longest life expectancy of all the prefectures in Japan, to live a healthy and happy life to over 100 remains commonplace, and any centenarian can readily name their <em>Ikigai</em>.

I routinely get between <strong>7 and 8 hours sleep</strong> a night, but is it <em>good sleep</em>? You know, the kind that refreshes and restores, because to be frank, I don't always bounce out of bed each morning feeling fully rested and powered up ready to go.

But if we feel vulnerable and open to criticism, or are knocked-back by even the smallest of set-backs, then it is all too easy to believe that we're powerless to act, incompetent, unable to relate, and doubt our-self in every area of our life.

Neither would it seem that this is a one-off seeking to encourage <em>wellbeing</em> across Japanese society. The country has more than a wee bit of a track-record in trying out novel and innovative approaches to promoting general wellness.

Sisu is a Finnish term that can't be readily translated into English, but is a derivative of the word Sisus which quite literally means the internal organs (or guts), of either an animal or a person.

That we should be investing early in the lives of our children is for me, a no-brainer! It's a fundamental given in helping them to grow-up to become independent, vital, creative, collaborative, resilient, resourceful, productive and happy adults.

They are getting the inside track on developing an emotional and social skill for living smarter, happier and healthier lives. They are developing their resourcefulness and building their resilience. They are clearing their minds, focusing their Attention and tapping into their creativity and ingenuity.
