Hello world!

Isn’t that the standard opening when starting a new blog? Something like Dear Diary, only available for millions of pairs of eyes instead of only one.

Welcome to All Paths To Victory!

 This blog will be thoughts on how to set and achieve goals, no matter what. It will talk about the various projects in my life, and how I get them done. It will look at various methods of ensuring that I achieve the goals I set for myself. It will talk about productivity, tools, mindset, planning, project management, time management, health, life balance and anything that is relevant to achieving goals.

My name is Gaye Wilson, and I am a professional life coach and editor.

As a coach, I specialise in coaching research students (at master’s and doctorate level, mostly) to finish their degrees quicker and easier. Typically, researchers come to me with all sorts of issues surrounding their candidature, plus life balance issues.

As an editor, I work with words to make sure they really say what the author meant to say. The type of work I do here includes editing for sense, grammar, spelling, punctuation and flow; proofreading the manuscript before publishing; indexing; and desktop publishing. Desktop publishing is an interesting term. It includes graphic design, layout, photo manipulation, illustration, research, writing and a whole heap of other stuff that leads to a final (usually printed) product. It can include books, brochures, websites, flyers, posters, wrapping paper, greeting cards, logos … the list goes on.

Anyway, this list was intended to show that I not only coach people on issues related to productivity, but that I am also involved in the production end of project management.

This is my very first blog, and my very first entry. I’m usually not very good at keeping a diary, so keeping an online one will be quite a challenge! I hope my blog will be useful to someone, and, if it is, that I get encouragement to keep writing.

More soon.

    Hello Gaye and congratulations on this blog. I’m sure it will be splendid: I’ll follow it with great interest. All best wishes from your friend David – and, since it happens to be the season, a happy Christmas and New Year.

    When I found out about you, Gaye, I thought I was getting the services of an editor for my doc thesis – and I was, a very knowledgeable and exacting one at that. I didn’t know that the phone conversations both related and unrelated to the the work in progress would be so lively and funny and encouraging as well. A bonus alright. Lovely to meet you!
