Confessions of a Recovering Procrastinator

Procrastination is a common enough word that is casually used on a regular basis to excuse ourselves from our unfinished work. However, it can be a crippling problem with such a profound affect on our lives that years slip by before we realize how much we have actually lost. Everyone has gifts, talents, intelligence, or […]

IRRATIONAL FEARS

There are plenty of things to be fearful of, but some are just plain irrational.  A fear is irrational when there is no truth behind it, or when it is not based on good judgement, clear thinking or reason.  When faced with a fear, you may consider taking inventory: Am I basing my thoughts and […]

DOING WHAT SCARES YOU

There are a variety of reasons that someone might not take the leap and do something new.   The fear that it just won’t be good enough is one.  Perfection and success, however, have nothing to do with one another. I say: make a mistake; no, make lots of mistakes.  JUMP. Do the thing that scares […]

FEAR OF CRITICISM

Facing my own fears has given me first-hand knowledge about how challenging it can be.  My latest jump has been recording a podcast with my sister, Kirsten.  Fear kept me stuck in the “just an idea” stage for over a year.  Ironically, we chose fear as our first topic.  I’m glad we did because it […]

IS FEAR STANDING IN YOUR WAY?

Facing my own fears has given me first-hand knowledge about how challenging it can be.  My latest jump has been recording a podcast with my sister, Kirsten.  Fear kept me stuck in the “just an idea” stage for over a year.  Ironically, we chose fear as our first topic.  I’m glad we did because it […]

MEDIA DIET

This week I’m throwing down a challenge:  take a break from the news! The mainstream “news” is a multi-billion dollar industry that is filling your mind with a lot of rot.  That’s right, I said it. Many years ago I made the conscience decision to stop watching the news in all its many and varied […]

WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT?

I suggest you ask yourself the question: “What do I really want?” every week, every month, every quarter and every year in preparation for the next question: “What am I going to do?”  It seems very obvious and yet so many people zigzag through life never having asked the question, what do I really want […]

ENTHUSIASM

How do you become the best possible version of yourself? You make changes each and every day to become a little bit better.  You strive to work on new habits and strengthen your self-discipline, learn new skills, develop talents, and gain new knowledge.  You become the best by setting goals and working to achieve them.  […]

FOLLOW THROUGH

I just finished reading, “Changeology”, by John C. Norcross, PhD.  I learned again, you must follow through.  I read a lot of books about success, change, goals, habits, coaching, being highly effective, organization, etc.  I have come to the conclusion that the key to it all is follow through. Why?  Because no matter how many […]

GIVING UP THE IDEA THAT YOU CAN’T

“If you think you can or you if you think you can’t…you’re right!”  -Henry Ford What do you believe you can do?  Did you know that limitations are of the mind?  Everything begins with a thought.  Everything that I have studied and every experience I have had tell the same truth:  whatever you believe becomes […]
