You know when you start writing  and you backtrack a gazillion times… No, that’s not quite right… delete… There has to be a better way to put it… delete… How the blazes am I gonna say that my heart, our hearts are breaking all over the place and that somehow [...]

It’s gonna be okay

Being here in Italy these past few weeks has been hard. Really, really, really hard. Witnessing this drama unfold real-time all around us, watching shops close and streets empty and people become increasingly fearful has been . . . heartbreaking. But I heard once that hearts break so that they can open. And this [...]

What we need to remember now

2020-04-13T08:43:24+00:00March 20th, 2020|Blog, Featured|

Crazy times. And you definitely don’t need me or anyone else to tell you to wash your hands or to avoid ‘end-of-the-world-anything-goes’ parties (maybe).  What it seems we do all need now is to keep in mind that: Tutto passa (this too shall pass). We’ve made it through many “the [...]

How to know you’re gonna make it

2020-03-04T06:58:07+00:00March 2nd, 2020|Featured|

The truth is I don't know how you’re going to make it. Or how I’m going to make it. Or even what it means to “make it”. When it comes to the tough stuff, there seems to be little "to do” to speed up the process of growth or to [...]

Start to Think What You Want

2019-09-24T18:18:55+00:00September 24th, 2019|Featured|

Any time I hear someone say “I think”, I’m tempted to challenge it. Not because I’m wanting a fight (being a total conflict avoider by nature), but simply because most of us don’t know how to think. We don’t even know where thought comes from. And neither of those shortcomings [...]

Can we REALLY do less to accomplish more?

2019-07-17T07:16:10+00:00July 16th, 2019|Featured|

More and more high-performers (especially women) are realizing that they can’t do it all. And that, surprisingly, trying to ‘do it all’ leads to poorer results. This realization comes, not-so-surprisingly, on the other side of overwhelm and burnout. So, we’re hearing more and more about the “80-20 rule” -- the [...]

How to accomplish anything

On my last trip to London, I picked up a book called, “You will be able to draw by the end of this book.” :) Slowly making my way through the exercises, I ran across this advice on p.29: “Get the overall shape of your subject drawn early, then refine [...]

How to nail your next creative project

2019-05-11T05:14:35+00:00May 5th, 2019|Featured|

The other day I asked my daughter to give me an art lesson. She was thrilled to be my teacher. And I learned so much more than how to draw the way she does. The insights here can help you nail your next creative project, inspire others, and sustain high [...]

Feel better about… Everything

2019-05-05T08:53:51+00:00April 11th, 2019|Featured|

Lately I've been experimenting with how to turn “hard work” into "play" as a way to accelerate growth (my version of *super learning*) and also as a way to feel better about, well… everything. These experiments came from two insights. One from my daughter: “Mom,” she said, “how come adults [...]
