The Key to Work-Life Balance

“Being with imbalance allows for balance.” Wait, what? How can being with imbalance allow balance? That’s a paradox! Yes, it is, and like most things that begin at odds with each other, when you get to the midpoint between the two, they are more alike than different. One of the most sought-after balances is work/life […]

The Game of Stability and Risk

Some people are more risk averse than others. I think I’m middle of the road. I’ve taken risks most of my life, some small, some not so small. Behind all the risks I’ve taken is a deep motivation for change, for knowing or feeling that a change is needed. There have also been times when […]

The word invictus means “unconquerable” or “undefeated.” The movie recalled a poem by William Henley, also called “Invictus,” that Henley wrote from his hospital bed while suffering from tuberculosis and recovering from having his foot amputated. The poem is about courage in the face […]

A Mentor Who Loves Mentoring

Through sport, I learned the value of having focus, having a goal I wanted to achieve. I took that learning into my life and business. In my business, goals became my ‘game of competition.’ I was competing against the goal I set. Who would win? In setting goals, I often overextended, got lost in my […]

It’s All a Matter of Perspective

How many times have I heard this line in my life? And truer words were never spoken! I am a pretty open person and yet, I too fall into perspectives that keep me closed to possible opportunities. Now that I have become more aware of the power of choice in perspective, I am living my […]
