I only needed about two solid hours to complete my book chapter summaries, so I went to “my” Starbucks to do two hours of focused work.
There were no private tables available, so I went to a long table that had an electrical outlet for my computer cord, but nowhere to rest my legs on the tall stool. I can live with that for two hours.
But, what I found I can’t live with is the guy next to me with cool ear phones talking to “whomever.” I have no idea who, or even if, he was talking to someone.
I got up to order some green tea, (after staring at and considering the bagel holes with cream cheese), and saw that my coffee shop “neighbor” was playing a game on his computer and is evidently talking to himself…or the screen…and almost every other word he utters starts with the letter “f.” Read More
No wireless at Starbucks, are you kidding?

Have you ever chosen to “sequester” yourself so you could only focus on one project? That is exactly what I did this last weekend and for the most part, it worked. I say “for the most part” because I didn’t get as much completed as I wanted, but it did “friendly force” me to stay with my project: writing.
I find that “sequestering” myself needs to happen in another city, because it’s too easy to do low priority tasks, like wash the dishes, make the bed and have everything in my home really neat and organized. Really? That only becomes important to me when I’m working on a high priority project…and writing is definitely my high priority for March.
When Intuition Knocks…See Who’s There
February 21, 2017
This year, so far has been a different, yet wonderful experience for me. I find that something is trying to erupt…come out…and up until yesterday, I couldn’t put my finger on it. Actually, I don’t know if I put my finger on any one thing…all I know is that a lot has been bubbling up.
I listened to my Intuition yesterday and went for a long walk along the beach…I call it a “Forrest Gump Walk” as it goes on and on and I find that I go on these types of walks when I am trying to figure something out…which seems like a lot of the time…
Most recently when a relationship ended after 15 weeks (but it was intense, and I thought this IS the guy…wrong…stopped going on my long walks…no wonder I hung on 8 weeks too long!!!! Wow, I just realized that I knew it wasn’t going to work 6 weeks into it and evidently, I “chose” to ignore all of the ruby red flags).
I would love to invite you to an evening of inspiration and friendship.

I had the pleasure of re-connecting with Jack Canfield again and it made me think…

Have you ever wondered what makes you stop …
or pulls you away from your goals? In other words, what takes you “out of the game” when it comes to your life and business goals?
Jack Canfield and I
What takes you out when you’re ready to write your book and nothing happens … or you start to write it and then you stop … or you give up entirely on getting your book out into the world?
I believe that our self-esteem is critical when it comes to everyday decisions, our perspective on life and business issues … and what prevents us from being the brilliant light that we are.
I remember when Jack Canfield (before he became famous with the Chicken Soup series) was actively engaged in helping others increase their self-esteem. And, here he is again over 25 years later, with his ten year anniversary updated book, The Success Principles.
I, too, am very interested in the topic of self-esteem, because I have seen how it plays a vital role in my life and in my clients’ lives. Over 25 years ago, I brainstormed with a dear friend once a week at breakfast about how we could build our children’s self esteem. Read More
