Lessons From A Toaster

Lesson From A ToasterDon’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 Continue reading

But What About Now?

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. One night after work I sat on one the those little blue chairs, surrounding the little blue table that has become Faith’s craft table in the kitchen. It’s where she often Continue reading

Don’t Have A Plan “B”

Don't Have A Plan "B"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. I could feel myself almost jumping through the phone, deflecting their hand away from pushing the “plan B” switch. Continue reading

What We Take InDuring seminars and coaching sessions I often ask clients if they allow their children to watch violent video games or movies. The resounding answer is “no, of course not”. When pressed for their rationale, I normally hear back, “Because it will affect them in some way. It could affect their behavior”. Sound reasoning and realistic logic. Amazing then considering this that we don’t turn the same lens of the camera on ourselves. “Does what we take in have an affect on us?” Continue reading
