Don’t Wait To Live Your Best Life

My birthday is this week; I will have been on the planet for 20,850 days (that’s 57 years if you don’t have a calculator). Seems like a lot of days. I am still planning for a lot more days (living more wisely and healthy), but the realization that our time isn’t limitless reminds me to be … Continue reading

Push Your Limits

Sometimes you choose to test your limits; sometimes life tests them for you. You choose to test your limits when you volunteer for a project that will require the best in you, face your fear and ride a wave, jump from a plane or go mountain climbing, leave home to study for a year in a foreign country, train … Continue reading

Progress Over Perfection

Working with a client this week, I bumped into something that I frequently see – the challenge of progress versus perfection. So many of us have learned that we must get things right, we must have the lives we have planned, we must be what others expect and achieve specific things by a particular stage in … Continue reading

Show Up. Tune In. Pay Attention.

Everything we need to be successful in the next moment of life comes from what we learn from this moment. So, the more conscious, mindful, attentive and intentional we are to watching and learning from our world, the more we see opportunities and possibilities that allow us to soar. It’s the same for work or life.

Tell Me About You

This past week I have been interviewing job candidates for my clients; they are looking to hire several people into new roles. I love to watch how people present themselves – in what they send in, on the phone and face-to-face. This is worthy of some comments, so here I go. It is important for us to … Continue reading

Choose a Different Thought

You see someone that others have told you is a jerk so you share a negative comment about the person with your friends. Someone cuts you off on the highway – you think the person is inconsiderate so you speed ahead and cut the person off. Someone makes fun of something about you. You make … Continue reading

Don’t Be Afraid of Life’s Tough Stuff

You break up with someone you care about. You don’t get into the your first choice college. You lose your job. Your friends don’t include you like they used to. You get sick. You say something stupid in front of others. Someone posts something unpopular about you in social media. Your parents get divorced. You … Continue reading

Take Your Blinders Off

We start off as amazing, creative and original beings who, over time, learn how to think, act and live like everyone else. I call it building the blinders. And with blinders, all we see is what is in front of us – the things that looks like what everyone else does.

You Can’t Train Against Nature

I love watching Cesar Milan, The Dog Whisperer. And though he is sharing his thoughts and experience with dogs, much of what he says relates to humans too, including this one – you can’t train against nature. Some dogs are born to run, others to sit in our laps. Confine the herding or hunting dogs … Continue reading
