How To Navigate Inspiration Overload

THIS WEEK, I've been reaching out to people whose work I love, trust, and respect to ask them to read an advanced copy of my new book and, if they are so inclined, provide an endorsement. As I considered who I wanted to ask, six or seven people immediately came ...

A Powerful Valentine’s Day Gift

The contractors we hired to frame our tiny house finished up their work last week. It’s an indescribable feeling to see it finally take shape and look like a house – door, windows and all. Because the project is so particular (every inch matters), Melissa and I spent as much time ...

Who Do You Think You Are?

Does this question ever creep up when you're considering a bold move? Whether writing a book, setting a boundary, traveling the world, or declining an invitation, our monkey mind can chime in with this universal brake-slammer. This smackdown keeps us small and hidden and dulls our light. It's a way to keep ...

Get Those Gears Turning, and Keep ‘Em Turning

I have some good momentum going in an area of my life where I'd been pretty stagnant. It feels awesome to be back in the flow, and also a bit scary that things could go off the rails again. Two questions I remind my clients to use whenever they feel stuck are ...

If I Ever Won the Lottery…

I'm sitting here reading through some #IfIWonPowerball tweets on Twitter and giggling. I'd hire Morgan Freeman to read me my textbooks. I'd pay off my student loans and use the remaining $45 for a nice steak dinner. (sad truth these days) I'd get a venti at Starbucks instead of a grande. Everyone (at least ...

Spiritual Lessons from a Sprained Knee

I'm heading downstairs to get some breakfast when my left foot slides out in front of me while my right foot stays planted, resulting in a full-on split with my back leg twisted. Not knowing whether anything is broken, I take a couple deep breaths and pull my leg around to ...

What Drives Your Decisions?

Last weekend, Melissa and I went to the Big E (Eastern States Exposition) -- the fifth largest fair in the country, billed as "New England's Great State Fair." With horse shows, concerts, carnival rides, gizmos and gadgets, and food - lots and lots of food - it can make for a whirlwind kind of day. Though ...

Deepen Relationships with Others and Yourself with this Powerful Practice

I recently had a marathon FaceTime chat with a best friend. Even though she and I are very close, I still tend to hold back when it comes to opening up. It's nothing personal to her. I do this with most everyone. I'm working on getting better at asking for help and relying ...

It Pays To Look at Things Differently

I had a long day at my desk yesterday. I got a lot done, but was feeling a bit spent while trying to decide on a topic for this week's note to you.I decided to go for a walk to clear my head and move my body. Maybe if I ...

What If It Were Easy?

This past weekend, I experienced, without a doubt, the most hellacious move of my life. From running out of room in the moving truck and having to rent another to leading a caravan down the highway during a torrential thunderstorm to pulling over said caravan so I could pour the cat urine out ...
