There Might be Something to this Self-Care Thing

I have a wide skepticism streak in me. Maybe you do too. Self-care is a term I have never been able to get behind. Most likely because in the beginning, it was always coupled with spa days, mani-pedis, beauty makeovers, tiny portions of chef-prepared healthy food, and pictures of well-dressed and coifed people lounging around.

The Lie We Know Too Well

Like you, I read a lot. It’s the best way to keep abreast of all the different ideas, concepts, and thoughts floating around the ethernet. And also stay connected to the lies we believe.  Lies? I have been reading the works of Srikumar Rao, the founder of The Rao Institute for years. His latest thought

The Law of Abundance

Last week, I had the strangest call. A prospect was grilling me about how I might help him. At some point, he got a bit spicy and announced, “You have watched the Secret and have bought into the Law of Abundance.” Say what? I have never gotten past the first five minutes of the movie,

About All Things Busy

Today’s post is inspired by something I recently read. “I am so busy.” We all hear (and maybe even say) this phrase these days. Right? It’s kinda like a two-for-one, isn’t it? “I am so busy.” A boast and a complaint. Simultaneously. And if we think about it, we likely started using this phrase when

What Are YOU Addicted To?

Recently, I was asked this very question! Naturally, like you, I shouted out,” absolutely NOTHING.” I quit smoking seven years ago and then dropped a bunch of extra weight by eating smarter, walking more, and drinking a glass or two of wine only three times a week. I haven’t been inside a casino in more

When Life Gives Us Lemons

Lately, I have been thinking about when life gives us lemons. Such a polite way to refer to those devastating moments we have little to no control over. Y’know the ones I mean. Death of someone close. Loss of a job or a business. Divorce. Horrible illnesses that happen to ourselves and our loved ones.

Can You Let Go, Just a Bit?

I was guesting on a podcast last week, and the host asked me what I thought the secret to success was. Without hesitation, I asked, “Can you let go, just a bit?” I have a history of being a classic type A control freak. I leave NOTHING to chance, over prepare for pretty much everything,

Efficiency? Effectiveness?

Which is more appealing to you? Efficiency or Effectiveness? Efficiency is the ability to accomplish something with the least amount of wasted time, money, and effort or competency in performance. Effectiveness is the degree to which something successfully produces the desired result. The words effective and efficient both mean “capable of producing a result,” but

BE-ing: It’s A Whole New Year!

This year, let’s toast BE-ing.  It’s a new year, a new number, a new beginning. Here’s to more hope, more happiness, more health and more humour for all of us this year. I have a confession. Last year, I finally threw away the fears that have held, bound and gagged me for the last six

Go With the Flow

The best part about this time of year is being with family, buying presents and gorging on deliciously rich food. (And not necessarily in that order.) The worst part about this time of year is the terrible exercise called, “Where did we fall short this year?” That is the piece I want to talk about
