Surprise! I was inspired by the Olympics.

  Over the last couple of weeks, I have to admit becoming an Olympics junkie. I never intended this to happen. As a matter of fact, I told my husband that I didn’t want to watch any of it. Who needs a steady diet of gymnastics and swimming for two weeks (along with a bunchRead more

Get At Those Goals

There are days I look at my calendar and I wonder what month we are in.  Either I’m moving really fast or the days and months have shortened from 24 hours down to a vapor. Anyway, it hit me this week that we are just about halfway through the year.  How can that be?  LikeRead more

Time to Take a Walk

  Every business has issues.  Mine does.  Yours does.  How can you deal with the issues? Take a walk. Yup.  Get out of the office and away from the problems.  You will find clarity or at least get a bit of space around it.  You might even want  to take a notebook with you. That’sRead more

Mental Clutter

Do you have a junk drawer.  Okay, dumb question.  Of course you do! Our minds can be a lot like that.  Sometimes we are in the space that was designed by one of those expensive, Italian-looking closet organizer groups with the fancy shelves and organizer bins.  We are working great, things are going well.

Get Your Head in Order

  So. . . at the end of my day the other day (it was a Monday), I had tense shoulders, the beginning of a headache and a generally crabby attitude.  I HATE spending any time feeling like that.  I looked back over my day to see what the source of the problem was.  The dayRead more
