How to Overcome “Stuck”

Procrastination is a topic that clients often ask to discuss during our coaching calls.  Sometimes they lament, “I know I’m a procrastinator, it’s just who I am, I wish I could change.”  Others will comment, “I want to stop procrastinating, I know it’s ‘bad’ for me, but I just do my best work when I’m under pressure.” Sometimes clients will say, “I’m so excited […]

Don’t Confuse Busy with Effective!

About 2 years ago I wrote a post about confusing motion with progress …the trap of believing that because we are BUSY we are PRODUCTIVE.  It’s an easy trap to fall into!  In fact, when I work with clients we often refer to this as “productive procrastination”.

How to Spend Your Time Wisely

It’s universal – we all want more money and more time.  Once we spend our money  – we can still make more.  But once we “spend” our time, it’s gone forever.

How to Create Action from Thinking

You’ve thought about “it”.  What’s keeping you from doing “it”?
You’ve considered switching jobs, starting your own business, hiring a coach, buying a new house, relocating to a warmer climate, going back to school, calling the “intimidating” client,
asking for a referral . . .

What’s holding you back?
Name it!  Whatever the piece is – name it!
Lack of resources, lack of knowledge, lack of money, lack of […]

Don’t Be a Ship in the Harbor

Time management is a journey.  Sometimes all you can do is keep your head above water.  Other times, you are sitting in your boat – but not yet prepared to sail.  And sometimes – you are in the “and them some” phase.  The period of your life when you are ready for more.
