Habit vs. Achievement Goal

Three Questions to Help You Choose

What the most popular activity at the beginning of a new year? For many of us, it’s watching the ball drop or attending a party. However, after New Year’s Eve parties, then come New Year’s resolutions and setting goals. As I’m writing this, it’s the second week of January. So, statistics say that about a […]

The Gifts of Imperfection – Week 2

Personally, I was excited to get to this week’s material. Finally, the guidepost chapters. A to-do list! Some ways to actually fix the problem of perfectionism! But that reaction was ironic… The Things That Get in the Way Brené wrote in “The Things That Get in the Way” chapter that she’s “not about the ‘how-to’”. […]

What to Say to People Who Are Grieving

My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s more than 5 years ago. Watching her gradual decline has been an extremely painful experience.

Over the years, I’ve intentionally become more organized. I keep careful track of my appointments. I schedule my tasks. I have a daily “to-do” list, and I am always looking for ways to get more done. However, it was only recently that I created my first “NOT to-do” list. That list almost immediately became my […]

How You’re Accidentally Contributing to Anorexia

In the last couple of years, I’ve started following a number of different people in the fitness industry. I find it inspiring to see their pictures and read their Facebook posts.

What Do You Need to Change Today?

There’s a question I read many years ago that has stuck with me – If you were hiring someone as a “life manager,” would you hire yourself? Now, I’ve never heard of the position, “life manager.” But it sounds kind of appealing, doesn’t it?! Someone to set goals for you. Help you map out your […]
