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”

Work Hard

Growing up, one of the things that I heard repeatedly was that you have to work hard to be successful. Somehow or another my growing brain associated the following with that statement: Working hard requires lots of time Working hard requires sacrifice Working hard is no fun Working hard is stressful Not working hard isContinue reading “Work Hard”

The A-Z of Calm

In honor of #internationalcalmday, here are my A-Z tips to be more calm. Allow. Allow your emotions. Burying them or overpowering them makes them last longer Breathe. The stress response increases your respiratory rate. Intentional breathing techniques such as a 4-4-4-4 box breath can calm you right down. Curious. Get curious as to what youContinue reading “The A-Z of Calm”

Thought Habits

Our repeated experiences in our lives become our beliefs. Like a computer, our brain programs in these beliefs based on repetition. I like to call these thought habits. The brain does not care whether or not the belief is true.  Your brain only cares that the thought has been repeated; not if it is true.Continue reading “Thought Habits”

Time and Money Mindset

If time and money were abundant, who would you be helping? What would you be creating? What would you be doing? What feelings would you be getting from these amazing things? I bet it wouldn’t be stress or overwhelm, would it? Stress and overwhelm almost always come from our mindset around time and money. WeContinue reading “Time and Money Mindset”

I See You

Hey my friend. I see you.  Stressed to the hilt. Overwhelmed with everything you have on your plate. No clue how to get it all done. Worried that you are ruining your relationship with your partner, kids or friends because all you do is work or worry about work. Worried because you are starting toContinue reading “I See You”

No One Listens to me at Work

One of the common mindset processes that I work with my clients to optimize is their self confidence. A lack of self confidence often presents itself as the situation that “no one listens to me at work”.  There’s a reason that no one is listening. As humans we are finely attuned to other people’s “energy”.Continue reading “No One Listens to me at Work”

Time Poverty

How many times last week did you say “I don’t have time”? What 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. You know that you are super busy and you just don’t have time for anything elseContinue reading “Time Poverty”

Conscious Decision Making

One of the things I’ve noticed lately is that a lot of people who are very good at making big strategic business decisions are not so good at making personal strategic decisions. They make decisions on autopilot and then second guess themselves to death once they make the decision.  Sound familiar? If you were makingContinue reading “Conscious Decision Making”
