3 Experts Weigh In: How To Make Time For What Matters Most

There are a few simple questions you can ask yourself — even on the go — that will help you take back your time for what’s really important to you. Summer is such a busy time it can be hard to make time for what matters most. Even the long summer days don’t seem to be enough for the extra time we all need and want.

Posted by on May 16, 2017 in Achieving Goals, Blog, Business Building, Changing Habits, Decision-making, Empowerment, Mindset, Overcoming Fears, Productivity, Worry and Anxiety | 2 comments

I’ve been dragging my feet lately about some things I need to do for my business. Ways I need to put myself out there, risks I need to take to bring my business to the next level. I could tell you it’s because I’m really busy or because Mercury was in Retrograde and both those things are true. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was also afraid of failure. Does this ever happen to you? You have a great idea — something new to offer in your business, or maybe you want to try a new hobby, or go for a new job — and you think about it all the time, but you don’t do anything about it. You’re...

Posted by on May 9, 2017 in Achieving Goals, Blog, Changing Habits, Empowerment, Mindset, Overcoming Fears, Productivity, Self Acceptance, Self Love, Worry and Anxiety | 0 comments

Ever feel overwhelmed? When there are so many important things to attend to, you can wear yourself out trying to take care of everything and everyone — leaving you feeling scattered and exhausted. And often your own self care — and your hopes, and dreams — get bumped off your To Do list all together!  But don’t despair — everyone feels like they can’t keep up with their own life sometimes. That time is flying by and important goals always get put on the back burner.  And that feeling balanced and centered will never happen. I’ll let you in on a little secret:  the elusive feeling...

Feeling Stagnant? Surprising Ideas For Getting Your Motivation Back

Can’t see clearly what needs to be done or how to do it? In this...

Finding Authenticity in Letting Go

Posted by on Dec 1, 2016 in Blog, Changing Habits, Decision-making, Empowerment, Mindset, Overcoming Fears, Self Acceptance | 4 comments

For the last 2 years I’ve had a huge personal goal: down size to half the size of the house I live in (or less). Actually, it all started about 6 years ago, when I decided I would be letting go of half of my belongings. Books and clothes were easy; I got stalled on furniture and mementos, especially anything associated with family.

Then I found the decluttering phenomenon, Marie Kondo and the KonMari method, outlined in her best-selling book, Tidying Up, The...

[NEW BLOG & FREE GUIDE] Start to Simplify Your Life

I can, and will happily, give you advice, inspiration, tools, and techniques for designing and organizing your life. But if you don’t know why you’re doing it, nothing I say will make a difference.

If you design a simpler, more consciously organized and chosen life, you’ll feel better. A Lot Better. But generalities like that are NOT going to get you to pack the 63rd box, update your project planner, or say No when you need to. Only...
