You deserve to be happy

Have you ever noticed what’s going on when you feel “happy”?Take a moment, maybe close your eyes, and remember a time when you felt genuinely happy. For real. Timeout for a sec. When was the last time you were all bubbly (without the bubbly)? My theory is that we feel [...]

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

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 [...]

How I moved to Italy (and did a lot of other things)

2021-07-20T08:05:39+00:00December 2nd, 2019|Featured|

((This post first appeared in what Forbes calls a "cult favorite" Create & Cultivate 😊)) When I moved to Italy twenty years ago, I did so for love. I had no savings, no lined-up job, and no connections. Skype did not exist and calls home were really expensive. Plus, I [...]

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 [...]
