C’mon get happy!

Happiness is much less about creating the perfect set of circumstances in your life and much more about choosing how you relate to whatever situation you find yourself in.  Some of the poorest people in the world, with the fewest resources, are remarkably happier than the typical middle class American (who has TONS of resources).

What do values have to do with it? Everything!

When we live according to our deepest values, everything just seems to come together.  When I begin work with a new client, I often like to talk about what their values are –what is important to them, what’s not-negotiable and what gets them fired up!

Finding Balance (Hint: You need a Vision)

I’ve always been a hard-worker.  It is part of who I am.  Finding time and space for play has always been the bigger challenge in my life.  Being a martyr also comes easy to me and it’s a pattern I have to play close attention to – or I get myself into a lot of […]
