Why Make a Shift?

Once an individual makes a shift in their thinking there’s no going back. What does this mean? I heard an example of a shift while listening to a This American Life podcast during my run this AM. The podcast focus was a prison’s production of Hamlet. Several of the incarcerated spoke about the impact of […]

Your Year in Review, A Guide

Looking back at the end of any year can be confusing. It may seem as though 1 or 2 events engulfed the year. Your year wasn’t made up of one or 2 events but an accumulation of actions, thoughts, feelings, happenings within your control, and happenings outside of your control. You know this but all […]

When You Find Something Wonderful

Yesterday, I missed a presentation. I was attending the PA Conference for Women in Philadelphia. I was on my way to this presentation when I decided to take a swing by the Coaches Corner, where I’d worked that morning. Last year, it hadn’t been very busy at the Coaches Corner where pro bono consultations were […]

About That Goal

The goal was important. Important because it was made from the deepest of intentions, based upon values and life purpose. A plan was made. Life happened. The plan got sidetracked. Sometimes, life’s big stressors arrive in clusters. When they do, dealing with what’s most important takes precedence. The goal took a backseat to pressing priorities. […]

Your Next Step

You don’t know what it is. You do know what it is. Either way, you feel immobilized. Questions you might ponder: What’s holding you back? Is it perfectionism?

Owning Past Learning is One Measure of Success. Why?

This past Saturday I got way outside of my comfort zone. I signed up for a 6 hr. chair yoga instructor training class. The class was open to yoga instructors and those with health care experience, PT’s, OT’s, RN’s, who had yoga class experience. I love yoga and have benefitted physically and emotionally over the […]

Uh, Oh, Here Comes Certainty!

Have you had an experience when you were certain, absolutely certain of something only to find out you were 100% wrong? I experienced this a few weeks ago. My husband and I went to the movies to see a film based upon a book we’d read several years ago. The film’s ending was not as […]

Career Decisions: Staying, Leaving, Growing

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states “The average person born in the later years of the baby boom (1957-1964) held 11.7 jobs from age 18-48”. According to the bureau, longitudinal studies have not been performed to determine how many career changes those jobs may have included. We know that today’s college graduates will have […]

20 Business/Life Lessons

I purchased an Exit Zero magazine while vacationing in Cape May, NJ a few weeks ago. A particular article, an interview of 2 brothers who’ve been in business together for 50 years described their 20 Business/Life Lessons. The full text can be found in the September Issue of Exit Zero magazine; great reading about The […]

“Rising Strong” Brené Brown

At 9:15 AM, this past Saturday, the line in front of Marathon Music Works in Nashville, TN was already a block long and several people deep. The doors were scheduled to open at 10AM for Rising Strong Day with Brené Brown to begin at 11AM. As I was walking from the parking lot toward the […]
