Organize Your Thoughts in 5 Minutes or Less

A while back I had a client who was writing her first book. She was extremely overwhelmed by all of the things she had to do in to get this thing off the ground. Where to publish, how to publish, how to format, editing, marketing, the list went on and on. Over the course of a 1 hour clarity call, we hashed out all of the blocks standing in her way, and then I reminded her of a simple tool she could use to sort out any lingering thoughts that threatened to cloud her judgment.  This helped her get back on track, gain focus, and remove the...

When You Argue You Look Like A Jerk Here’s Why

The other day I was talking to a friend of mine who’s going through a rough break up.  She was so upset about her ex’s behavior – lying, cheating, acting petty.  She found herself arguing with him constantly and tired of his accusatory insults and refusal to address the heart of the matter.   Stop Arguing You’ve Already Won I asked my friend a simple question.   “When you argue with someone who isn’t as smart as you, who looks like an asshole?” She stared at me with a strange combination of...

A Spooktacular Halloween – Click for a Free Treat

In just over 8 hours, kids everywhere will be overdosing on sugar.  It’s bound to be a fantastic time. Tonight I am taking my girls trick or treating and I’m super excited – they will be the cutest owl and duck in town!  I think the best part is that Reggie has nicknamed her sister Zoey-Duck.  I can’t stop myself from calling her that…do you think that makes me a bad mom? Anyway, I don’t have a regular post lined up this week because I’m taking a break to spend the holiday with my kids.  Instead, I...

You Can Have Anything But You Can’t Have Everything

Before we jump into today’s post, I want to remind everybody that Hacking Procrastination is tonight at 9 pm EST.  This free workshop will show you how to get over procrastination for good!  Be there, or be a procrastinator.

Birthday Giveaway Guess what party peeps?  Today is my birthday.  That’s right.  Another year older (32 big ones) and I think I’ve finally got a handle on the things that make me happy.

When I look around, I can’t help but think this is the happiest birthday I’ve had in a...

7 Things You Can Do to Get Out of Your Own Head

Do you ever wish you could get out of your own head? You know the answers are there, but you just can’t wrap your head around what to do or how to do it. Your mind buzzes and whirs and makes a lot of extra work, but you never really get anywhere.  When you finally give up, you are exactly where you started except sweaty, tired, and annoyed. You decide to give it a rest for the day…but you can’t because the minute your head hits the pillow all that buzzing and whirring starts up again.  Frustrated and tired, you get fitful...

How To Have A Proactive Reaction

Proactive vs Reactive Behavior Being proactive is about taking control of a situation by causing something to happen.  Reactive behavior is when you respond to a problem when it occurs instead of taking steps to prevent it.   But how can you take steps to prevent every bad thing from happening?  There is no way to know what will happen from day to day.  At some point, you will have to react.  So, where is the line between being proactive and reacting to a situation.  And is it possible to have a proactive reaction?   What Is A Proactive...

4 Week Challenge – Final Goal Check-In And An Announcement

Today marks the final day of our 4 week challenge.  How did you do?  Was it harder than you thought it would be?  Or easier?   When you set your goal 4 weeks ago you had an idea in mind of what it would feel like today.  Think of the picture you had then.  How do things measure up right now? How Do You Measure Up? Don’t worry if you didn’t meet your goal.  I’ll be the first to say that I did not meet mine every single day.  Sometimes that happens.  The truth is, if you set a goal that’s a little bit hard to reach, you...
