I Am Not a Mind Reader (and you probably aren’t either)

Twice this past week, I received the lesson that I am not a mind reader. I was beating myself up over what I THOUGHT others were thinking. The first occurrence last week was after a networking event.

Don’t Chicken Out on the High Dive

Last weekend, I took my kids to the pool in my home town. At this pool, there is a high dive and a low dive. As you would imagine, for some kids (heck, for some adults) it is a big, huge, scary deal just to climb the high dive steps and jump off straight forward.Continue reading “Don’t Chicken Out on the High Dive”

How Do You Eat an Elephant?

You’ve probably heard this before: How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. This happens to be one of my favorite sayings. I use it often to calm down and remind myself that any large project is possible when broken down into smaller pieces. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you takeContinue reading “How Do You Eat an Elephant?”
