Choose Your Words Carefully

Happy Tuesday! :  ) It’s another beautiful day of opportunity and choice, and we’re lucky to have it. I’m feeling better this morning as I knew I would. The past couple days I’ve been “less than 100%”, which is never fun. Some...

The First Distraction

I podcasted a few days ago about the ‘first distraction’. That’s the one simple small thing that takes your focus away from what you intended to do, only to then gain momentum and size like a snowball rolling down a hill, until next thing you know an...

There’s a Pill For That

Well, that was a surprise. Clearly I didn’t think through this very well. I woke up this morning at 6:25 after pushing the snooze button four times to find that it was already getting light outside. Last night was daylight savings, but for some reason I thought...

Happy Monday! :  ) It’s the beginning of another chance to get it right. For me, that means getting back on track with a decent bedtime, getting up early and blogging every day. I haven’t fallen off the wagon entirely with any of those things, I’ve...

It’s Opening Day of the Season 8 Championship Challenge! Everyone’s back to a level playing field with the chance to take home the Crown. It’s a great time of year. There’s something invigorating about the new opportunity. Yesterday, or in this...

Self Coaching Journal – Day 31

Day 31 and up at 6 o’clock, an hour before sunrise, with just enough energy to get to the couch in the family room where I found myself waking up 30 minutes later. This morning was a struggle. I went to bed at 10pm which was two hours earlier than I have the...

Are You Ready to Change Your Life?

Will there be another first time Champion? Will girgis defend her crown? Will YOU ever get “beyond the feel-good” of warm fuzzy Facebook posts, inspirational tweets and life-coaching blogs to finally start taking ACTION!? It is mind boggling to me how many...
