Why doesn’t XYZ Time Management work for me?

Would you agree that we are all unique? That no two people have had exactly the same experience in this world? You can see how this is logically true, right? Even your siblings who grew up in the same house as you did not have exactly the same experience as you. Those experiences created neuralContinue reading “Why doesn’t XYZ Time Management work for me?”

Whipping Yourself to Achieve

I heard an analogy this week that stuck with me. It was that I’m a thoroughbred and my jockey is whipping me to perform. Wow. The visual in my mind is crystal clear. Holly whipping herself to achieve no matter how sick or how tired she was….no matter how much her body was screaming forContinue reading “Whipping Yourself to Achieve”

Time Anxiety

How many times last week did you say “I don’t have enough time”? What fun and joy did you miss out on because this was your automatic response? If you are like I was, you may be saying this multiple times a day without even realizing it.  You believe that you are super busy andContinue reading “Time Anxiety”

Tunnel Vision

Do you get tunnel vision when you are going after a goal and ignore the other parts of your life? I sure did and it led me down the path of some serious imbalance and stress. It’s interesting to me that tunnel vision is something our bodies do under stress. I personally have never hadContinue reading “Tunnel Vision”

Fear of Looking Stupid

Have you ever held back from asking for help because you didn’t want to look or feel stupid?  I’ve done this all my life. I start to feel unsafe when I don’t know something and I’m talking to a person who I’ve deemed to be an authority or expert. I immediately change the subject backContinue reading “Fear of Looking Stupid”

What I Wish I Knew Earlier in my Life

I gave a speech this week for our local Young Marine’s organization to celebrate the promotions of all the great kids who worked hard this year. I decided to talk about what I wished I knew when I was a kid. I didn’t figure some of this stuff out until recently, so I thought IContinue reading “What I Wish I Knew Earlier in my Life”

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

Current research states that we make about 35,000 decisions per day. So it makes total sense that being efficient at making decisions would make us more efficient with our time usage, right? Many of my clients tell me that they aren’t very good at making decisions. This definitely isn’t true or they would starve toContinue reading “Decisions, Decisions, Decisions”

Overthinking Leads to Stuck

I can’t believe how many of my clients, friends and coworkers overthink. Hell, I can’t believe how much I overthink. You know what you get when you overthink? Stuck. Like your tongue with a PBJ, stuck. No action. I’ve seriously been overthinking what I’m going to say to you since this morning. What an inefficientContinue reading “Overthinking Leads to Stuck”

Using Your To Do List as a Weapon

I can’t relax until everything I decided to do today is done. This is the thought several of my clients have had this week. I have it all the time as well. It might just be the calling card of the high achiever. It’s a very all or nothing statement. It’s driving us to pushContinue reading “Using Your To Do List as a Weapon”
