Tigger and Eeyore

“That’s what I call bouncing,” said Eeyore. “Taking people by surprise. Very unpleasant habit. I don’t mind Tigger being in the Forest,” he went on, “because it’s a large Forest, and there’s plenty of room to bounce in it. But I don’t see why he should come into my little corner of it, and bounce…

To Get More Done, Eat the Frog First

 I’ve been researching time management and productivity for years.  I have taken courses and given speeches. I am supposed to be a productivity expert, and yet, even though I know the ‘right’ way to do things, I revert back to my old ways – particularly when I am stressed.  For instance, I start checking my inbox…

Speak Your Truth

speak your truth

Speaking your truth even when your voice trembles. Years ago a friend of mine gave me this quote on a cocktail napkin when I was going through a very difficult time.  I kept it for years.  I loved both the simplicity of this quote and the magnitude of it as well.  Many of us talk…

Clarity – the Missing Piece

The definition of the word clarity is ‘the quality of being clear.’ In my coaching practice, I find that clarity is the missing piece for most of my clients. They don’t know what they want; They have not thought about it. What is in front of them is what they have, and taking the time…

FOCUS – THE KEY TO A WELL-BALANCED LIFE

For many of my clients, balance is an issue. By “balance,” I’m talking about the ability to get everything done at work, so you don’t have to think about it when you get home. There will always be big projects and unmet deadlines that keep us up at night, but learning how to create some…

CHOOSE TO BE LAZY — EVEN IF YOU WERE TOLD NOT TO

Are you Lazy?  Is that bad?   When I was a child, my Mother told me I was lazy.  I know she had enough evidence to support her claim, yet I’m also sure her intent was not to hurt me, or for that message to stay with me into adulthood — but, it did. Now, when…

PERSPECTIVE IS A CHOICE

Our words are powerful. For example: When we say, “I am so busy,” there’s a rush of adrenaline that runs through us, as our bodies prepare to go to battle to accomplish all we need to get done. When we say, “I am doing great; I can handle everything on my plate.” Our bodies begin…

What’s Your Word of the Year?

I’ve either made or broken more new years resolutions than anyone I know.  From that experience, I can wholly appreciate why they don’t work.  These resolutions are based on a list of tasks – do this and I will have this.  Lose weight and I will be happy.  They seem to be filled with ‘shoulds’ and we…

Happiness 2.0

Four years ago, I was happy, blessed and felt guilty if I ever dared admit that I wasn’t satisfied. I was stuck, but I couldn’t even say it out loud. I knew something had to shift. I decided to give coaching a try and hired an Executive Coach. Through the coaching process, I admitted to…

What Does Dare to be Happy Look Like for You

Dare to be Happy blog

I had the opportunity to work with four amazing women in my signature group coaching program called, ‘The Happiness Journey’.  For three months, these women set three intentions that were important to them and worked to create them.  They dug deep to determine what happiness looks like for them and what they are missing or…
