What’s holding you back in your life? This is a question I ask all my clients at some point in our work together. And it typically makes them pause. Stare blankly back at me, and shrug.
Lots of things. Nothing. My obligations. My boss. My husband. My low self-esteem.
These are common responses. And ultimately, they are all true.
And yet, they’re not.
For most of us, we fail to realize that each of these ‘obstacles’, each of these barriers is only true because we have...
I'm a sucker for juicy words, particularly words that sum up a great thought in a simple and clever way. Oftentimes the best words, are not in our mother-tongue...enter Ganbatte!
Ganbatte is a Japanese word that essentially means "go for it"!
I've heard it tossed into conversations among my Japanese friends, peppering notices of big projects, promotions, life events, etc. When someone has something big going on, their friends tell them 'Ganbatte'! Go for it, do your best!
Are there places in your life where you know that you are 'just going through the motions'?
You will never find your edge, you will just keep 'doing a good job'.
We want to bust through the boundary of 'good', and we can only do that by being intentional, by focusing, by being thoughtful.

But what are you doing to set yourself up for an impactful and meaningful 2018?
Just as a business tracks its annual outputs and progress, so too should you take some...
I’m consistently amazed at how serious people are.
Or maybe I should say, at how ‘seriously they take themselves’ and their work.
Somehow humor and levity seem to have been sucked out of our homes and the workplace. The world seems to have an air of heaviness and thickness that permeates pretty much everything.
Those who can approach this ‘heaviness’ with a sense of humor and light stand out in the crowd.
Who doesn’t want to feel good? Who doesn’t...
We are preparing for a Hurricane here in Florida. A big one. Now, I'm a mountain girl, and the whole concept of preparing for an act of God to potentially wipe you off the map is slightly intimidating to me. In fact it's absolutely terrifying! There is a pervasive feeling in the air, as ethereal and icky as a spiderweb that you accidentally stepped into, or an itch you can't scratch: Fear.
