My Dogs are Jedi Masters

  Yoda has nothing on my dogs.  They really are the Jedi Masters of peace and tranquility.  They are so good, they taught me to chill out.   I got to the point in my life that chaos was the norm. My best friend and I used to joke about how we have this sick …

Balance is Bull; How My Son Got Me to Get Life

Having a 21 year old son as a mirror, reflecting certain aspects of my personality can be quite annoying. I am never sure whether to be proud or afraid that our personalities are so similar on several counts. Physically we could not be any different: I am 5’ tall, maybe 100 pounds soaking wet and …

6 Tips for Dealing with Workplace Distractions

I had every intention of getting my to-do list done before noon today.  My dogs, especially Bandit, had other intentions.  My dogs are a fixture in my office; they are also my biggest distraction. I completed my three mile morning indoors on the treadmill this morning, much to the chagrin of the pups.  I plan …

How To Make That Change

While this seems like a vague title, it is intentional.   I am in the business of change.  I work with individuals to change something in their present situation.  In a general sense you could say I am a brand manager.   For those looking for a new position or advancement in their career I …

And Yet The Rules Do Apply To You….

I was heading back to the office today and had the privilege of following a special driver.   They must be related to the couple at Walgreens yesterday.   I say special because apparently they thought the rules did not apply to them.   The driver drove straight through the left turn only lane and …

Is It The Equipment Or The Operator?

I come from a family of golfers, my uncles, grandfather and even my ex-husband are all golfers.  I don’t know the first thing about it; actually I know this: I swing a golf club like a bat – too many years spent at the batting cages with my son. My dad played occasionally, not a big …

You Don’t Get A Cookie For Peeing On The Floor

It is ironic to me that we can see the clarity and prudence of bits of wisdom for some aspects of our life but not for others. By “we” I am including myself in this one – not throwing stones. Not rewarding bad behavior is one of these sage little tidbits that is often selectively …

How Will You Be Remembered?

As morbid as this sounds there has been a lot of talk about death this week with my family. My step-dad’s mother passed Monday and the services were this week; which reminded me of a friend who lost his mother in September and her services; which then prompted my son’s dad and me to talk …

Working Like a Dog – Seriously?

As I sit in my office working this morning, I am buzzing away because it is so quiet and peaceful. Realizing that it is quiet and peaceful makes me look around because in my house quiet is normally not a good thing – first with kids now with my little pack of dogs. Looking around …

Habits Won’t Die If You Don’t Want Them To.

I know someone that bemoans consistently about the negative results of one of their behaviors. Every time a negative result happens it is almost a surprise to them, then it becomes an “a-ha” moment, then a heart-felt “I have to stop doing that” and lastly all that insight goes out the window when they turn …
