We are DECIDING all wrong

March 12, 2020Optimize Your Time

Did you know the word DECIDE comes from the Latin word decidere, meaning “to cut off”? This is compelling, yes? A bit of an AHA actually. Most of us make decisions to say YES to something without the accompanying NO to something else. The cutting off.  And what happens to our YES? Not much. I believe there is a great … Read More

A Productivity Hack That Will Make You Giggle

March 6, 2020Pivot with Courage

Grab a pen and write answer this question: How do I define fun and how much fun am I having?  We humans highly committed to adulting often see fun as secondary; a luxury that comes after all the boxes are checked.  There are also cultural constructs of what qualifies as fun and what doesn’t.

February 10, 2020Elevate The Conversation

Pick any topic and engage 5 people about it. My hunch is you will have 5 entirely unique conversations about the same thought starter. Each of us is entirely unique and thus, our impact is entirely ours. The question is: Will We Own It?

Disclaimer:  Huge fan of conscious joy. Question:  What in the world is that? Answer:  Conscious joy is joy by choice in all moments. Question:  How about authenticity?  How about allowing ourselves to feel deeply? to mourn and grieve?  To express our anger and sadness?

Time and task management is a function of something much more captivating and inspiring; something life defining. And yet, most “systems” that purport to organize us root themselves squarely in the “get it done” addiction.   We get “caught” in the allure of time and task management because we’re conditioned to believe nirvana materializes when we’ve neatly checked off the last … Read More
