The 80:20 Rule

What you do at the start of the day matters.

Being intentional at the start of the day. It really matters.

This is about focusing on the things that are within our direct control.

Three questions you can ask yourself:

  • How do I want to show up today?
  • What would I like for the experience of my life today?
  • What would make today a really great day?

And then reflect:

  • Are my morning habits helping me or hindering me?

By taking some time and focusing at the very beginning of the day, being intentional, and doing the things that help create a sense of calm, wellbeing and balance within yourself, you can set yourself up on the right trajectory. Putting yourself in the strongest position to deal with the challenges of the day.

My Mission

Fiona Redding


My mission in life is to share everything I have learned – and am continuing to learn – about turning my own life around and to really help you understand that happiness is to be found in the overcoming of obstacles and challenges in your life, and not in the absence of them.  To achieve your potential in life, you need to become your potential.  And for that to be, you need to understand yourself, and learn how to harness your strengths and overcome your weaknesses.   You have the power within you to create whatever reality you choose, and I am here to help you know that if you don’t like what you are experiencing, then you can absolutely change that.   But you do have to choose, believe, and be open to all possibilities, and to keep showing up every day, even when it feels really hard. Because if you do what is easy, your life will be hard.  But if you do what is hard, your life will be easy.
