Cut the Fat and Build the Muscle..with your time (and life!)

Posted on Mar 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

Are you too busy, overwhelmed and feel like the “pile” keeps growing? These ideas will get you back on track FAST… KEYS 1. Know what’s important 2. Prioritize essentials 3. Prune time wasters 4. Create boundaries 5. Simplify processes Know What’s Important What do you value? Leaders, organizations and gurus on time management often rally the necessity of values-clarification as “the” first step in any great creation. Deciding what you truly value is key before building any empire (business, family or craft). Knowing what you value is a critical step in the process of time management. Answer these questions for clarity: 1. What are your core values? They should reflect the kind of person you envision yourself to be in all situations (home, work, friendships etc.)? 2. Is there anything in your life right now that does not resonate with you or feels “off”? Why is it there? Whose approval are you looking for? Can you remove it? 3. If you could subtract any bad habit, what would it be? If you could add a good habit (however small) that would make your life easier, what would it be? 4. What is stopping you from acting with clarity (and confidence) toward what you want out of life? These questions are not a finish line, rather they begin the process of getting you closer to what you truly value so that you can invest your time more productively. Prioritize Your Essentials Once you know the kind of person you want to […]

Are You Living in the Land of “The Almost”?

Posted on Jan 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

Are you living in the land of The Almost? You know, that place you dwell that feels almost right – but not quite. Now of course our heart cannot sing at all times, but usually when a note has not struck for awhile it may indicate you are not living in alignment with your true joy. Perhaps it is a slippery slope when folks set out to design their lives. Many build their worlds to win the approval and respect of friends and colleagues. They make choices to feel important and worthy over joyful and passionate. When too many compromises are made in the name of winning outward approval, you may just step right into… The Almost – and boy can it get sticky there! The Almost is so seductive. It lures us with adoring fans when we make a choice that is just ever so slightly more in alignment with someone’s (and society’s) values over our own. We dismiss that slither of uneasiness we feel convincing ourselves we are merely “compromising”, not quite realizing the impact of our choice. The Almost feels so much like the real thing it is easy to mistake it for a direct hit. We hold our arrow steady, take position and release the bow landing just one ring off center – “pretty good”, we think. We find ourselves soon rambling the positives of our almost hit, as we cover our passions deeming such pursuits penniless. How unfortunate. Being a proponent of positive thinking I […]

True Inspiration

Posted on Jan 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

Where do we truly find inspiration? The kind of inspiration that makes us step back and evaluate the track we are on. What kind of moments, observations and epiphanies really inspire us to look deeper at our choices, lives and habits? Is it in the book we just read or the movie that moved us? Perhaps. Or are the most profound moments of inspiration less obvious, less direct? Perhaps we underestimate the more subtle but deeper triggers that take us to new heights and inspire real change. Moments we observe the greatness of another in the ordinary. For example, when we observe the courage one has to speak up on a topic of passion or live a lifestyle foreign from our own and it inspires us, could this mark the first whisper that hints at our own desires and potentials? It is in the small but extraordinary choices observed in others that hit a personal cord in us toward our own transformation. When we are motivated, something is pushing us but when we are inspired, something has been ignited within us. The best way to mine the gold in sometimes fleeting moments of inspiration is to question why the inspiration is there in the first place. Are we inspired because someone moved in a direction we ourselves are afraid to go? Can we gain a greater understanding of our own fears, blocks and issues by observing deeper? I think so. Witnessing the greatness in another can launch a sort of […]

CSC-Broward Trainer Authors E-Book for Transitioning Youth Kristen Mackey, a longtime trainer for the Children’s Services Council of Broward County, has released I AM Worthy of Greatness, available as a free download (link below). Authored with Scott Baker, the book was written especially for young adults aging out of foster care at SOS Children’s Villages – Florida in Coconut Creek. It is applicable, however, to transitioning youth everywhere and has already received positive feedback from readers. It even inspired one to launch a creative project. The short book is about healing, clarifying and creating a life aligned with one’s passion and vision. It also includes practical advice and useful links in the toolbox at the end. “I feel the book was a huge inspirational support for young adults who have aged out of foster care,” said LaShonda Cross, Aftercare Coordinator at SOS Children’s Villages. “ It can be used to assist each individual to identify with their inner emotions.
