How Do You Define Success?

In a recent conversation with a wealthy businessperson, the conversation turned to stress. He commented that he was trying to figure out how to simplify his life and retire. Defining success is personal, but he commented that he would trade a lot of the monetary rewards in his life for peace. Where does being content […]

High Definition Vision

My husband gave me a new TV for Christmas. I don’t watch much TV, but the one we’d had for years was embarrassingly outdated. It was small and fit in an old TV hutch – the kind that hasn’t been produced for at least 20 years. Time to embrace technology and opt for the new […]

Visionary Leaders Have High Hopes

The winter fog has been thick this week, stymieing ships in our local port and causing numerous accidents on the road. It’s unnerving to drive when you can’t see where you’re going.  I approached a highway intersection this week where the normal speed is 55 mph.  I was creeping along at 30 mph because I […]

In the past month, I have worked with hundreds of people on vision casting. It has been interesting to note how many struggle with giving their imagination free rein – even for just a few hours. It was Einstein who said, “Creativity is intelligence having fun“. How can there be such a disconnect between vision […]

The Power and the Promise

There’s always someone who seems to do it better than you. We are all surrounded by those who are more articulate, more dynamic, better looking, wealthier, skinnier, healthier, wiser.

Fulfillment: 3 Keys to Happiness

Every year, I choose a word. One word to keep before me. This word is pondered, considered, and savored throughout the year. It helps me focus and live intentionally. Fulfillment is this year’s word. The dictionary lists more than a few meanings… fulfill (-ment is the suffix making the verb form a noun) The word […]
