You have 30 seconds. Go. Let's face it.  We're crunched for time.  There are too many things screaming for our attention and it's hard to clear the way to take in the information that we actually need and want.  Have you ever had this happen to you? You get into the elevator and then just before the door closes, the CEO/VP (person who makes you nervous and has the potential to catapult your career) walks in.  Or, you're at a party and you...

Last week, you learnt how to create the most effective to-do list ever. If you missed it, you can read the post again here. Since life isn’t just about productivity, I want to take your to-do list a step further. What if I showed you how you can be productive AND happy with everything you’re doing? Take this scenario: You frequently find that you do not feel like doing the items on your to-do list. What’s the solution? You suck it up...

As a life coach in the bay area, I’m super lucky to work with people from a lot of different backgrounds including musicians, artists, entrepreneurs and other creatives. I love being surrounded by such a diverse group of people – they elevate my life by reminding me that there is so much to learn. I never cease to be amazed by where I can find inspiration. Case in point, this latest site that a client of mine told me...

Ask people what they most want to improve in their lives and the number 1 answer you get? Be more productive. It’s the key to everything. If you can be 10% faster at getting everything done, you have 10% to do something else. But why is it so hard to be productive? There are more tools at our disposal than ever before. Shouldn’t they be making life easier? Experience shows, that in fact the opposite is happening. People are having...

  Are you frustrated? Tired of doing the same thing over and over? Or may be you are faced with an unplanned change; a lay-off, restructuring or even the end of a relationship. It’s understandable to panic, go into a shell, or wallow in unhappiness, but the truth is, there is also an opportunity here. An opportunity for new beginnings. If you’re unhappy with an aspect of your life, or even if you just feel a slight stirring to do something different,...

I am excellent at execution. Give me a plan I believe in and I will make it happen no matter what. In fact, I pride myself on being able to get something done especially when it seems impossible (completing a Whole30 diet challenge while my kitchen was being remodeled is an example of this). The trouble with being a great doer is that you’re always looking for someone else to plan the solution for you. So what do...

We love to compare ourselves to other people…our neighbors, our peers, our friends..even our family members. And, our culture not only makes it easy to do so..it encourages it. For instance, how much time do you spend surfing other people’s Instagram or Facebook feeds? Now tell me, how do you end up feeling after you do so? Inspired and motivated? Or discouraged and depressed? Here’s the potential problem with comparing yourself to others. When we...

Picture this scenario. You’ve been on a quest to eat healthy for the past few weeks. It’s been tough but you are making small changes and seeing steady results. But then, it’s Friday and someone brings in donuts and you can’t help yourself and eat two of them. Ugh!!! “What’s the point?!” you’re thinking. “I suck at this! I just can’t do this anymore.” Sound familiar? Now picture this. You are driving down the freeway and you get a...

How do you start off your mornings? Do you have a routine or ritual that you go through? Or, is it more of a haphazard series of activities as you rush to get out the door? Most successful people I know have a morning routine. And, it makes sense. There are several advantages to having one: A study by the American Psychological Association shows that creating and following a morning routine leads to a drop in your...
