In graphic design terms, ‘white space,’  refers to areas left blank. You know when a poster or webpage is too busy to even see what it says? Lack of white space can create a visual overwhelm that causes you to shut down and move on, without reading or taking in anything that’s been presented. In the art of creating your life, white space needs to be included, too. In fact, the addition of white space...

How I Fell In Love

How I Fell In Love

It was an autumn day in New York City in the late 80’s. Crisp and clear, with that warm sun that somehow manages to have a whisper of winter in it. And I fell head over heels in love. With marketing.

And how powerful and important marketing is — how truly vital it is — to you doing the work you love in the world. What really made...

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.
