Article: Selling Your Ideas

All we have to do is look into a mirror. I know. It isn’t pleasant to consider that we could be responsible for our lack of success, but there it is. If we have not convinced someone, the onus is still on us to do so. It is not the decision maker’s job to convince him or herself of the idea’s merit.

Article: Finding Balance

Article: Finding Balance

Everyone I know struggles to balance their work and home lives. No, wait a minute. That’s not true. My retired friends seem to have it down pat. The rest of us juggle, patch, negotiate, apply a temporary fix here and there. This isn’t very satisfying. In short, we feel as if we’re not doing justice to our careers or to our families and friends.

Article: Getting Creative

Article: Getting Creative

What inspires you to create? When I ask my clients and workshop attendees this question, I’m usually met with a pause, possibly accompanied by a blank stare and a tendency to search for something shiny to focus on. Most of us aren’t used to thinking about this question, and it makes us uncomfortable. We aren’t sure we really are creative.

Article: Getting Enough Sleep

Article: Getting Enough Sleep

Some people wear their sleep deprivation like a badge of honor. If they sleep less, they think they’ll get more done. As long as they don’t keel over into their bowl of soup at lunch, they figure they’re doing pretty well. CNN has suggested sleep problems are reaching epidemic proportions, and the National Commission on Sleep Disorders puts the price tag at $150 billion dollars each year in higher stress and reduced productivity.

Article: Overcoming Worries and Fears

Article: Overcoming Worries and Fears

Our fears limit us. They hold us back. They keep us from living a positive, proactive life that embraces the good and decries that which needs to be changed. Fear-based decisions hurt us, and they hurt others who are affected by our decisions. The child who is never allowed to make decisions because we fear she’ll make the wrong decisions finally rebels and turns into the teenager from the black lagoon.

Article: Overwhelmed? Compartmentalize!

When we catch ourselves elongating a mishap or problem, we can compartmentalize. Big word, but relatively easy concept. Think of your life as one that is filled with a series of rooms. One room might hold that CEO who badmouthed your brilliant work. Another might hold your career with the company.
