What makes you so special?

Used to be a question I used to dread! And I’ve been asked this question at least a thousand times over the course of my life… that’s a lot! I must say for the first half of my life, I struggled to answer it. Why? Because I honestly didn’t think I was special. I was […]

How to “bookend” your day

Just finished rereading Dan Pink’s new book When! It’s so darn good! Probably the second only book I wouldn’t mind rereading in the years to come… the first one was The Power of Full Engagement. (Tony Schwartz’s book “The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working” is a great read too!) Here’s an excerpt worth reading (and […]

What are the odds?

I’m closely working with a few clients to explore their “big why” behind procrastination and leaning on instant gratification.

The app won’t get s#@$ done for you!

You may think it would, but we know… it won’t. Regardless of what’s written on the features and benefits page of this app (whatever you’re using right now) or that friend who swears by the coolest app in the town. And here’s what’s ridiculous — people have made a fortune writing about how to use […]

Bumped into this wonderful piece by Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck. Highly recommend that you read the whole article but I wanted to highlight and curate what struck out for me. Most of us who feel stuck in certain habits are stuck because we’re emotionally embedded in unhealthy […]

The Librarian vs the Warrior

The Librarian… gathers, collects, organizes information… and essentially becomes a philosopher or a theorist. They usually don’t know what the heck they can do with all that information. Who would?
