There’s a New Wolf in Town

Posted by in Keynote, productivity, Uncategorized, workshops | 2 comments

The sheer speed, volume, and ready access to information, anywhere and anytime presents us with unique unprecedented challenges when it comes to what we choose to ‘feed our psyche.  This, it seems, is the ‘new wolf in town’. Aggressive, cunning, and stealthy, this wolf has an insatiable need for constant stimulation, wreaking havoc on our nervous systems and peace of mind.  This wolf wants us do more, keep busy 24/7 and 365; checking and rechecking  email, texting,  buying the latest whatever, joining social networks (simply to have more ‘friends’) and,  perhaps worst of all,...

Gut Buster Moments

We’ve all had them, those deep belly laughs, ‘gut buster’ moments. They feel so good- the best cure for stress and negativity. We need more of them! Imagine a world in which everyone laughs out loud and uncontrollably at least once a day. I’m talking; ‘please stop, no really please stop you’re killing me’, kind of belly aching laughter that seems to happen so rarely but is so good for us. Seriously, I’m talking about ‘I haven’t laughed this hard since the time Bob sneezed during the manager’s luncheon with a mouth full of...

Are you practicin’ relaxin’?

Modern life pushes to do more, think less, and react to whatever seems most urgent. Sure, we get a lot done, but on the whole, we’re not very happy while we very stressed out! Stress is  killing us, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The number of American workers who consider stress to be a major problem in their lives has more than doubled during the past ten years. 62% percent of American workers say their workload has increased over the last six months; 53% say work leaves them “overtired and overwhelmed. Moreover, the modern brain, over exposed to electronic stimuli,...

Early Morning Humility

Posted by in Keynote, Uncategorized, workshops | 0 comments

Just recently I had an early morning flight from San Diego to the east coast. For some reason I figured that because my flight was at 6am, the security line would be short and I breeze right through. I don’t know why I assumed this but I did and was wrong!  The line was long and I immediately felt anxious and began to worry that I would not make my flight. I tend to stress about flying anyway; whom will I sit next to? Will my flight be on time? And so on. So my anxiety and stress level is building. I am looking for a way to get close to the front of the line. A woman just in front of me...

In A Rut? Make A Decision

Posted by in Keynote, Uncategorized, workshops | 0 comments

In my keynotes and workshops I’m often asked about  the process  I went through in order to be more productive and with a lot less stress. In a way it wasn’t really that hard. One day about five years ago I got sick and tired of trying to deal with my email.  I really needed to learn a better way to work! I really like what I do but the very process, along with the shear volume and complexity of what I had to deal with was simply overwhelming! I made the decision to learn a better way to work. I faced the reality that what I was doing was stressing me out big time.  Once I got...

Transform Yourself Through Journaling

Posted by in Keynote, workshops | 0 comments

I had been thinking about keeping a journal for a very long time, years in fact. ‘One day’, I thought, ‘I really will.’ I think I somehow knew the transformative power that expressing myself through writing might have. In fact the few times I tried it I felt really good afterward. Putting pen to paper, or clicking away on the keyboard usually left me feeling a bit clearer with some perspective I would not have had otherwise. Although I liked the feeling of have written a few good pages, I never felt like I could stick with it. I used to think the problem was that I lacked consistency...
