Some days we're less inspired than others.  It doesn't have to mean anything.

I am in a motivated phase of my life. I’ve done a lot and been through a lot to get here. And I’m at the point where I enjoy the work I do, I enjoy the calm that organization brings me, and I...

How Much Time Do You Waste Feeling Shame About How You Spend Your Time?

We have a collective obsession with the passage of time. Of what we do with our time. With using time “correctly”. With not “wasting” time.

I was talking with an acquaintance at my son’s basketball g...

Step 1: Accept that you will never finish it all

My to-do list covers a lot of ground.

Right now, I have at least 16 things on it, and a lot of them are not related. Some are about my kids, some about work. My dog needs to go to the groomer. I need to Marie Kondo my clos...

Waiting until perfect means you miss out on great.

He’s doing an after-school program at an...

Are you obsessed with things you can't change?

He was having some health issues. We saw a specialist, and agreed that he needed an endoscopy. It’s a routine procedure. The doctors sedate the person, put a tiny camera d...
