#315 – How Do You Relax?

#315 – How Do You Relax?

At my new kung fu class, I am told “Relax” every single time. It got me asking, “How do I relax?” So I’m going to ask you now – how do you relax? There’s no point in telling me to “Just Relax”. That’s like saying “Calm down” to someone who is angry, it just gets them...

#314 – There’s Got To Be More To Life? Part II

Here’s Part I if you missed it. So where did I leave off? Taking control of my life after the crisis – that was what I decided to do. And what on earth did that mean?  I started thinking about what I wanted to do. I thought perhaps it was time to study something that...

#313 – Major And A Minor Career

Do you have a minor career alongside your major one? What do I mean by this? I was reading a blog post from Randy Deutsch, an architect who deliberately chose to do something new every 7 years besides his job, so playwright, speaker, author, etc. (1) It’s a long post...

#312 – Connecting The Dots

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.” – Steve Jobs I’ve done a...

#311 – When Do You Get A 100% No?

It sounds like it should be the start of a joke but I’m not joking. When do you get a 100% No? You get a 100% No when you don’t even ask.  I recently sent some emails to some schools asking about places for my son and my husband thanked me for doing it and said that I...

#310 – To Renew Or Not To Renew

Update your payment details to continue watching…. As a credit card expired, Netflix suddenly came to a stop. My automatic reaction was to renew but then I stopped and thought for a moment. It was an opportunity to gain back precious time. The series and documentaries...
#309 – Is There Really A 7-year Itch?

#309 – Is There Really A 7-year Itch?

Perhaps you have heard of the 7-year itch for relationships where couples either make or break at the 7-year mark. The principle seems to apply to multiples of 7 as well, so 14, 21, 28, etc years. I’ve seen strong couples go through turbulent times and it doesn’t...
#308 – Do You Reward Yourself?

#308 – Do You Reward Yourself?

“I’m going to treat myself to sushi” They say that it’s good to reward yourself now and then once you have completed something you wanted to do. It can be an incentive to get things done. I never thought I was any good at rewarding myself as I tend to just move onto...

#307 – Ask For What You Want Help With

“If any of you know any places that I could give my Step out of your comfort zone talk, please let me know” I asked the ladies at the end of my talk at the Professional Women’s Group Think Tank. It may be obvious to us what we want but not to others. People aren’t...
