Chaos or Calm?

Your outside world will match your inside. Unknown I have heard this quote before, but was reminded by Mark Groves podcast recently. I know that for myself, this has been (annoying to admit) true.

Multipotential..what?!

Pardon me while I get FULLY excited for a moment.  In a world where we sometimes (often times) don’t always fit the “mold” of what is around us, the TED Talk below was one that really resonated with me.  I used to beat myself up (a LOT) about not having a “dream” destiny/career/life path or […]

Respect Your Time

Please don’t waste my time. I would say “wasting my time” is one of my top “pet peeves”. I abhor people who are late (without warning and without good reason when they do arrive), or people who come to meetings unprepared and expect to have everyone else waste time to catch them up. I do […]
