How to be Grateful for Opportunities vs. Overwhelmed by Responsibilities

2024-01-08T01:14:53+00:00Expectations, Focus|

Let’s be honest.  This time of year is hectic and you may be overwhelmed by responsibilities! Travel – Shopping – Cooking – Cleaning – Perfect Gifts – More guests in your home I get it.  A lot is going on, and the expectations of the season seem to grow each year.  Why do we let ourselves get sucked into this whirlwind of responsibilities? THINGS THAT SUCK US IN My family always made a huge deal of the holidays, and it wasn’t done right unless everyone was completely exhausted and broke at the beginning of the new year.

How to Sharpen Focus and Increase Productivity

Ouch! Change is inevitable. Change is the very essence of life itself. But most of us don’t want that change to just happen to [...]

Focus Strategies for Life’s More Important Decisions


I’m not fan of working out. Yes, I understand the benefits are enormous. The older I get and the more I’m educated about the body and how it works, I’m convinced that being pro-active in a healthy lifestyle is much more worthy than the lifestyle I’m naturally drawn to. But this reality comes with a boatload of daily decisions that must have my attention. Do I spend the day convincing myself that broccoli is better for me than fried zucchini? And that those 15 minutes of sleep really will give me a big advantage at work? Is there a way to lessen the burden of the decisions I am faced [...]
