Go Where The Kites Go

Go Where The Kites Go
I get asked this all the time, "Is there a point where this gets easier. This personal growth thing I mean"? Fair question. Honest question.

It all stems from the ...

Calories In, Calories Out

Calories In, Calories Out
We are all familiar with the term and there is a scientific equation to this. It takes 3500 calories to create a pound of weight. Conversely, it takes the burning of 3500 calories to lose a pound of weight. As a point of interest the losing equates to about seven hours of aerobic exercise.

Don't lessons come from the most unexpected places? I sat at the island in my kitchen eating a sandwich and glanced over at the toaster on the counter. It's new, but fashioned after the old looking model of toasters. Very rounded looking with a matt silver finish like the ones you may remember from childhood. The maker, Delongi no doubt capitalizing on the nostalgia ...

But What About Now?
Here's a big challenge we face everyday. Just being here. Just focusing on what we are doing and try to get the most from it.

Change is like the elusive rainbow. We know they exist but it's all but impossible to watch one form. In a group coaching session we were talking about one component from the program, which is what I call "Current Moment Consciousness" or improving the ability to focus.

DON’T HAVE A PLAN “B”

Don't Have A Plan
Oh, how often we allow ourselves to get faked out into settling for less than we want. Less than we deserve. I spoke with a client who is going through a challenge. We all go through them. During the conversation about this challenge it was brought up that what had been defined as their goal would now likely have to change as a result of the situation. ...
