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 ...

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 ...

Are You Fed by the “Fix”?

On a client call, Mary* talks to me about her desire to broaden her photography skills as a way of expressing her creativity. "I really love taking pictures, and people often comment on how good I am at it. The idea of diving deeper into this hobby gets me really excited!" This ...

Struggling to Celebrate Others?

Melissa and I were recently watching "MasterChef Junior" -- a tv show where young (I'm talking 8-13 year-olds) at-home cooks compete for the title of MasterChef Junior, a huge trophy, and $100,000. As we watched the kids having their dishes evaluated, we were struck by the other contestants' attitudes. "I love how the ...
