Repeating this mantra softly to myself has helped me sail through the hours of overwhelming tasks in a day. It has stopped me from rushing and I hate rushing. Rushing just sucks. It makes life feel hasty.  I want to savor life. Even the boring parts. This idiom also applies to anything you do. It has helped me improve my days. When properly learning something new Any new skill that you are trying to learn should […]

According to one of my favorite thinkers, change must happen individually, before it can happen on a grander collective scale. 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 […]

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 […]

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. […]
