• Moving Forward toward Goals

    The past 6 weeks went by so fast, and I felt these time have been so fruitful, yet intense.  Since September, I had 4 speaking engagements, co-hosted 1 Facebook Live, conducted 1 workshop, attended the largest technology conference, and plus, all of projects I have at work.   Phew, high-five to myself! Because we are human and we have the need to feel that we are moving forward in our lives, having bite-size milestones for each of our goals can help us see progress that are sometimes hard to spot.  I often advice my coaching clients to set up tangible and measurable goals at the beginning of the year (or if you…

    Yes, I Start Yoga … A Guest Blogger

    “That’s your thing.”  It was my continuous excuse for not taking her up on the invitation to do yoga with her.  It was the perfect response: it got me out of going, but did so by establishing that it was important that we have “her things, my things, and our things” when it came to activities.  I regret it.  I’m 35 and, although I’m not out of shape, I don’t feel like I’m in shape these days.  In March I broke my ankle; my first significant injury since high school.  Shy of a few pulled muscles, a jammed finger, and scrapes and bruises, I’ve been lucky.  Being casted and on…
