The 8 Most Valuable Life and Business Goals To Pursue Right Now

It’s that time again — back to school, back to work, back to sweaters and boots (at least here in the northeast), and that means it’s another Goal Setting Season! I like to use seasonal changes and yearly flows to shape my rhythms and pursuits, and decades of “fresh starts in the fall” means it’s a great time to think about the 8 Most Valuable Life and Business Goals To Pursue Right Now. I had a teacher who used to say, “Whenever you wake up, it’s morning,” meaning that you shouldn’t beat yourself up for not realizing, starting, or doing something sooner. Be on your own time table. So...

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. Between traveling, house guests, kids activities, the lawn and garden, home repairs, and unique outdoor activities, it’s easy to just go, go, go and start to feel uncentered and pulled in too many directions. This week I’m sharing the advice of 3 expert authors, each with a unique...

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...

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. All my Mom had to say was, “It was your grandmother’s,” and I’d move whatever it was from her dwindling attic to my overstuffed one. 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. I’m not talking about some standard line about why you should do it: that you’ll be happier, less stressed, more peaceful and relaxed. All those things are true. 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...

When Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post, one of the largest and most influential news aggregators in the world, resigns as editor-in-chief to avoid job burnout, you know you’ve got to examine your own work habits. I think we can assume that Ms. Huffington, a super successful leader and entrepreneur,  can hire as much help as she needs at work and at home. She can manage her time any way she wants. She can delegate. And still, she chose to resign so that she could fully focus on her new nonprofit, Thrive Global, whose mission is “ending our collective delusion that burnout is...

How To Bring Soul Into Your Decision-Making

Recently I worked with a client who was trying to decide whether to take the leap to leave her stressful job of 12 years for a new position in another company. She’d done the ‘pros and cons’ list, but was still stuck. And while I couldn’t help her see into the future, I could offer some key questions for discerning her best course of action. What are the questions to ask when you hit a fork in the road? I’ve been in a discernment process myself, looking at the option of offering an online Holistic Life Coaching Certification program this fall. (If you’re considering taking the...
