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 ...

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 ...

Resolutions Can Suck It!

Happy New Year! The clean slate of January 1 can be intoxicating.... and daunting. A I mentioned in my note last week, I'm not a believer in resolutions, and instead, choose to set intentions for the New Year. It's a subtle, but important difference. Resolutions stem from an "I'm not good ...
