Your HELL YEAH Wake-Up Call

The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials. Lin Yutang I’m still buzzing from a powerful exercise I (sort of) made up last week. I’m calling it “Your HELL YEAH Wake-Up Call” inspired by the bestseller Tools of Titans in which author Tim Ferriss interviews icons, mavericks, and other stellar people about what

The Joy of Unscheduled White Space

One of the benefits of getting older is being able to predict on Monday morning how I’m likely to feel by Friday afternoon. This crystal ball shows up as my color-coded weekly calendar. The more color on my spreadsheet, the more I need to pay attention. Here’s why: A loaded calendar means more activity and

What’s working and what’s not?

I’m in the process of radically shifting my life. It all started mid-November 2016 and it’s been going strong since.

If you need to solve a problem, go out for a walk.

My philosophy is if you need to solve a problem, go out for a walk. Get some fresh air and clear your mind, and you’re likely to return home with your answer. Move and breathe in rhythm for a prolonged period of time, and you’ll settle down. Move your body in rhythm, and you’ll calm

Finding Time in Silence

Last week I retreated into silence during a few days at Pendle Hill Retreat Center with meditation teachers Scott and Nancy McBride. The power of a few days away is a true gift and I’m grateful for the opportunity to sink into quiet to get clear. I’m inspired to share an excerpt on silence from

What Truly Matters Most?

I’ve been shifting and sorting through the levels of my psyche, searching for the words to describe the core of what truly matters most to me. To be honest, it’s grueling and often messy work, and not for the faint-hearted. As I wrote about in my last post, “Standing on Shaky Ground,” excavating through the

Slaying the Dragon: How I Faced My Fear of Heights

I am afraid of heights in wide-open spaces. I can usually deal when I’m standing still, like when I’m in a tall building, but put me in a car that is traversing a mountain and you’ll find me in the back seat with my head between my knees. There’s something about motion and space that
