It’s Christmas – in July!

Happy Holidays!   I know it’s not Christmas or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or Ramadan or  . . . but we can celebrate Christmas in July, can’t we?

In late November and early December, I am asked questions about how to handle the increased busy-ness at the upcoming holiday season in addition to already high stress levels.  AND usually by early December . . . the “damage has […]

Is it Time for a Break?

Recently I was speaking to a friend and she stated, “I’m taking a sabbatical from my business to figure out what I really want to do.”   I remember thinking, “WOW – I thought you LOVED your business.”  Which was quickly followed by, “Goodness, doesn’t a break sound nice.”

Of course, I didn’t actually say either of these thoughts out loud – instead what I […]

How to Set – and Honor – Your Boundaries

“Every little NO protects your big YES.” – some amazingly smart woman.  (I wish I could remember who I first heard say this so I could credit her!).  

“I’m so busy doing things for other people, I don’t accomplish MY goals.” – a client “Syndi”.

“I don’t know how to say no, without offending the other person.” – overheard in line at the grocery store.
How […]

You Deserve a Break!

Do you take regular breaks during your work day?  I know that I can become so focused that hours can pass by before I notice it.  Yes – that means I’m sitting, at my desk, typing on my computer, without moving, for hours.  Umm . . . not healthy in a physical or a mental sense!

I know this isn’t great for my productivity. Honestly […]

Relaunch Yourself!

When a friend of mine recommended I join Joel Boggess and Dr. Pei Kang on the ReLaunch Radio, I was intrigued.  What a great title!  I did some research into what they’re all about and discovered that Joel and Pei are focused on helping entrepreneurs and other business owners reach for success and personal growth – relaunching themselves!

They focus on the journey on how you […]

Why You Want to Celebrate Rubber Eraser Day

Today is Rubber Eraser day.  Yes – really – it really is.  I’m not making it up!  What I found thought provoking is Rubber Eraser Day comes the day after Reach as High as You Can Day.

Think about it – when you STRETCH yourself to reach as high as you can, when you push yourself out of your comfort zone, when you implement new […]

How to Quickly Create an Island of Hope When You’re Drowning in Overwhelm

It snuck up on you.  All of sudden your perfectly planned week has turned into chaos.  Forget “too many tasks to do, not enough time” you are drowning in tasks, AND appointments, AND meetings, AND obligations, AND . . .

Everyone needs a piece of you!

You haven’t checked your email in days.  The list of calls you need to return is now 2 pages long […]

Is Your Own Cup Full?

A time strategy visionary takes a time management course and realizes she doesn’t have enough time. This isn’t a brain teaser or a joke.  This statement is actually based on my experience of enrolling in and completing the Holistic Time Coaching course through Coach Approach for Organizers.

Each week I will share my experience and ah-ha moments  as I put myself back in the role […]

Superman in a Wheelchair

Steve Jobs is quoted as saying, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future … believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worn path; and […]
