I’m not sure when I adapted such a stressed out, hard-charging approach to life, but I did and it sucked and I am over it. I don’t regret much, but I do feel as if my fretful, grinding approach to work and life has exhausted me with very little more to show for it. All that grind, all that toil, leading to very little added reward. What a waste of energy. Sure I feel successful, but I have […]

Doubts don’t kill dreams, delusional thoughts do. Our half-beliefs and uncertain thoughts are trying to tell us something very important and it is our responsibility to listen up and act. Negative mind chatter These annoying worries that wake us up early and keep us from moving forward, hold the power to help us grow and become stronger. While most of us tend to drown out the worry, anxiety and concern, I am interested in finding out what happens when instead […]

Oh to be the change we want to see in the world. . . .society gains nothing whilst a man, not himself renovated, attempts to renovate things around him. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Essay on New England Reformers Our ability to really influence our reality around us first calls for purposeful self-transformation. Renovating the way […]

#1 What is the #1 Habit you can stop today that will benefit much of what you do? Stop expecting something to go wrong. Sure it is okay to have a mindset of realistic optimism, but try replacing the somewhat cynical notion of Murphy’s Law with  “Something GOOD is going to happen today.” Even just saying it makes me smile. #2 What is the #1 Habit you can start today that will benefit much of what you do?

I have come upon a shift in thinking.  It’s the difference between living a life that is unprepared, off-the-cuff and according to the demands and cries of others TO a more deeply connected, intentional and thoughtful life. A life designed to inspire and ignite others. It’s a conscious decision to move away from my “ad-libbed” life, towards an artful, improvised life with deliberate purpose and meaning. “My life is not an apology, but a life. It is for itself and not for a […]

Tomorrow is Today Focusing on our future selves helps us to make new decisions about what we should be doing right now. With this vision and connection to our future self we can apply the action needed today to make the changes in order […]

I’m not sure you find your purpose, I think you live your purpose.  If my purpose is to become the best version of me, then what would the best version of me do today? The unbeatable version of me? The most self-respecting version? The most loving version of me? What action can I take today to be that person right now?  Criticize less and compliment more. Let others do things their own way. Talk only when necessary. […]
