Whenever Friday comes, my social media is flooded with Thank God it’s Friday, OMG it’s the weekend, #friyay (this word should be banned), and a celebration of the upcoming days off of drinking, binge watching, eating, basically doing something that falls in the category of enjoying life, often it’s more like escaping life. When Monday […]
Challenge yourself. Every day you are presented with new opportunities to challenge yourself. You have countless opportunities to think about things differently, to try doing things a new way, or to explore new aspects of your job. Challenging yourself is not easy; it’s so much better when someone else challenges you because then you have […]
Open your mind to new ideas. While of course it makes sense to think of whatever situation you are face with using an open mind, it is also important to keep your mind open at all times, not just when you are looking at a specific situation. Keeping an open mind can help you to […]
Lately I’ve been giving some thought to extremes and how often we look at situations from extreme points of view. It is so easy to label something as “good” or “bad” so we do just that rather than really giving it thought and figuring out what it really is. I find myself guilty of this […]

When you seek instant gratification (big, quick fixes) you make life unnecessarily painful and frustrating. When you choose instead to treat each moment […]
To get good at something, you need to love the process. The people who get good at singing songs are those enjoy doing scales and warm up exercises, who take time to write their own songs. The people who get really good at football are those who enjoy the physical and tactical side of the […]
Burn the candles; use the nice sheets; wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

Never lose sight of your competition. Stay close to them. Watch them. And even learn from them – not just what to do but also what NOT to do.
