Don’t Add Another Thing to Your To-Do List Until You Do This

  I know your type. You run all day, likely holding your breath, you rarely (or never) have time to enjoy a relaxed dinner with your family, and you wake up every morning dreading the day ahead. Imagine if you could be in Bizarro World and you suddenly open your eyes feeling enthusiastic about your life, you browse a bookstore on a whim, and even have a quiet mind for most of the day. Call me crazy but this is possible. Ask yourself: What is really ... Read more

From Chaos to Freedom!

Does Your Reality Really Suck Way Too Often? Life is so crazy busy you can hardly stop to check if you are still breathing! Imagine looking at your life and seeing something different? Imagine being able to stop to smell the roses, have a relaxed dinner with the family or friends. How about waking up feeling rested and ready for the day and actually looking forward to all of it!   Seems impossible, you say. Well if you continue the way you are now ... Read more

Are you good enough?

I just want to start by saying (with not much humility) I just completed several exams where my abilities were assessed by Master Certified Coaches as “good enough” to receive my PCC or Professional Certified Coach for the ICF otherwise know as the International Coach Federation, the first and largest Association of Coaches worldwide! This is a HUGE achievement for any coach and most don’t do it because it is scary!  There are 3 levels of certification, ACC Associate Certified Coach (150+ hrs client coaching), PCC ... Read more

GET MOVING!

I was just looking at the boxes piling up as we get closer to our move date. I wonder how many others I know are doing the same. There is lots to do but I have been pacing myself. Layers of our stuff have been removed one week at a time and now there are only 4 left before the big day. Moving can mean many things. Moving house and home, moving our body, moving forward in our jobs and life as ... Read more

Why not live life as a blonde?

I remember a commercial from decades ago told us if we did not like who we were we could “live it as a blonde”. As if changing our hair color was all we had to do. Is it really that simple? It has not been for me, how about you? If you don’t like what’s happening to or around you – what are you doing about it? If you want your life to be different who are you willing to become to be ...

What movie describes your life?

Happily Ever After- life is just good! The Perfect Storm- just one huge disaster! Groundhog Day- the same old, same old… The Trouble with Harry… you feel dragged along with no choice or control! Please comment on what movie/series describes your life. Whatever it is – if you are not thrilled with its content you have a choice to change it. No I did not say it would be easy, just that it is possible. If you don’t know where to start, get support to figure that ... Read more

Evesdropping #2 “Eve has been shoulding all over herself!”

You met Eve last week in “Eve” a REAL client! Eve had come a long way in her quest for happiness and value in her first coaching session. Her next session began with thoughts about feeling guilty. Eve felt guilty about so many things. Guilt about not being the best mom, not doing enough of ‘this’ and even doing too much of ‘that’ at times…I know that you get what I am talking about. Some of you have been there, ... Read more

10 “Energizing” Habits #2…What feeds your soul?

What feeds your soul? Yeah, for me! Last week I kicked off “10 daily “energizing” habits and I for one did it! Well I did the first one, which was the plan, after all. I was a bit lazy on the weekend as I did some writing in advance, sort of. In reality I wrote every day as I was working on a new piece or editing one for the next day so it seems that is the nature of this beast. ... Read more

Are you having a “trying” day?

Last week I wrote from a thought after reading …to always try just “one more time” and immediately- it was all wrong for me. I missed out on the most important points so I will do this “one more time” for me- and for you. I really have ditched the word “try” from my vocabulary. My antenna goes up when I hear someone say “I will try to be there…” Or “I will try not to do that again.” It is a ... Read more

What are your standards?

Quote; “A great source of stress in personal and professional relationships is the mismatch of standards you aren’t aware of when you make the initial agreements. Unfortunately you usually only recognize your own implicit expectations of appropriate behavior when they are violated.” David Allen in David Allen’s Productivity Principles Read more
