Constant Vigilance

My weight loss journey reminded me of the story, told often, when an alcoholic who changes their life by giving alcohol up, says “one day at a time”. Especially as it pertains to food (for myself) around the holidays. Surrounded by heartfelt prepared meals. Temptingly delicious sweets. All wrapped in the holiday spirit. During a recent holiday meal, there was lively conversation...

In This Moment

My breath seems distant. My heart beats quietly amidst the noise. In this moment, do I have the courage to forget? Things that frustrate, anger, hurt, & worry me more? Challenged to be quiet. Really still. To enjoy in this moment, I am both alive, free and well while walking along this shore. . Time stops only when we choose it. If only for a brief stop along our way. Giving us this instant...

We Aren’t As Good At Connection As We Think

Connection is defined as “a relationship in which a person, thing, or idea is linked or associated with something else”. We aren’t as good at connection where we are the one side of a relationship to a person, thing or idea. Are there examples? Ideas that are difficult for us to grasp. Interacting with people can be a challenge. Learning how to use new software can be...

Impactful Personal Change

Awareness is the key.  Becoming more self-aware while seeing more of what is around you in a situation or in your day, is vitally important to beginning the journey towards impactful personal change.

Why Ideas Don’t Reliably Predict The Future

Have you ever heard of someone share an idea as to what should be done or how things could be made better? I have. Hundreds of times. Yet, most never happen. Why is that? An epiphany occurred while listening to a podcast interview of Peter Thiel. He is a super successful venture capitalist and company builder. He was an early investor in Facebook, worked on Paypal early, and other ventures. The...

No Time Today

To Talk. Discuss. Agree.

To Touch. Smile. Hug.

To Share. Laugh. Cry.

To Reflect. Forgive. Move on.

To Stop. Measure. Adjust.

To Ask. Question. Learn.

To Question Why? Who? When?

To Pray. Thank God. Appreciate.

To Stop. Reflect. Understand.

That time is only the enemy because we use it as an excuse instead of using it more productively.

Let’s Boil The Ocean

This week, I attended a meeting of heads of like local organizations, to see if we can find ways to work together. Most of us were strangers to each other. It was the first time that many of us met. During the course of the two hour discussion, many ideas were shared. Common struggles were confirmed. Priorities were exposed that converged into common themes. My impression was that everyone in the...

More Ideas & Perspectives Please

Someone pointed out to me recently, that I get very excited around new ideas & perspectives. I humbly thanked them for the insight, having never really thought about this. And if it is true, then more importantly the question to answer is why? Reflecting on this insight made me think of many instances where being exposed to new ideas and perspectives led me to new revelations and learnings...
