Time for Some Tough Love?

Halle-freakin'-lujah, the sun is out today and it's a balmy 40 degrees F. Little Kerri is entirely fed up with winter and she wants consistent, springtime temperatures. Stat. We've had an historically cold and snowy winter here in New England this year. Our first real storm of the season dumped about ...

Celebrate All Parts of You

My wife, Melissa, has always loathed the question, "What do you do?" She thinks it's a lazy and uninteresting conversation starter. As someone who has no desire to define herself by her job, she'd much rather talk about her hobbies or what gets her fired up in life. I used to ...

The Power of the Adjustment Period

When I left for the airport a couple of weeks ago, the car said that it was one degree outside. Seven hours later when I arrived in Belize, it was 90 degrees with 85% humidity. My body nearly went into shock, the difference was so extreme. It took me about three or ...

Tap Away Your Resistance

I’m writing this on a plane heading back home after a truly magical vacation in Belize. Prior to my departure (typical of anytime I’m getting ready to fly somewhere), my anxiety kicks up. I’m quite a nervous flyer, mostly in anticipation. As someone who takes comfort in being in control, ...

A New Take on Valentine’s Day

According to a survey by the National Retail Federation, the average amount spent on a Valentine's Day gift is $142. Whether on flowers, jewelry, candy, or clothing, I wonder how many of these items end up in the trash (dead flowers aren't very romantic), down the drain (candy only lasts so ...

Share the Love

As a child, I can remember my friends wanting to be adopted by my parents. Despite the mayhem of seven kids running around, and my parents figuring out, day-by-day, how to manage such a large brood, our home was a welcoming haven for all. Mom has always had an open door ...

Stuck & Frustrated? Start Here

I'm on a coaching call with Nancy* who is annoyed because she feels like she's spinning her wheels, saying one thing, but doing another. "Why can't I just finally do something about it?" she asks, desperately. Ah, the million dollar question: Why, if you really want to make a change, don't you? Here are the ...

Face Your Demon Head On

It's been a bit of a rough start to the New Year. Really, the challenges and stress started around the holidays, so I've been doing my best to navigate them for a few months now. I am someone who compartmentalizes -- something I think is a useful tool when dealing ...

Speak Up!

For the past week, my father has been in the hospital as we try to get his delicate health issues balanced. I am blessed and fortunate to have a close-knit, action-oriented, resourceful family, and we've all been doing our part to see that he gets the care he needs. It's easy to ...

6 Ways to Guarantee Resolution Failure

I read a statistic the other day claiming that a majority of resolution-makers hold steady on their commitment for only a week, and a small percentage stay on track for a month. Then.... kaput. Based on my 13+ years of coaching, and on the challenges and successes in my own life, here are ...
