Resistance Versus the Hard Stop

Each morning, in the cool Ohio air, I take my dogs out to do their business.  The oldest dog is not on a leash. He wanders around the yard on his own...free from restraint.  The younger dog (Finn) cannot be trusted with that amount of freedom. I am forced to bundle up...

The Story You Tell Yourself

The Story You Tell Yourself

Yesterday I woke up feeling tired.  I knew it was time to wake up.  I had a lot to do.  But my body and mind did not seem ready to move. I convinced myself to peel my body out of bed and I walked slowly to the kitchen so I could make coffee.  As I filled the coffee...

What About Now?

What About Now?

My 12 Week Year Goals

I talk a lot about goals on this blog (and everywhere else).  I believe in them.  It helps me (and you) to create a life worth living...on purpose.  But sometimes creating goals for an entire year can seem daunting.  It can be hard to see that far in the future...and...

Since I can remember, New Year's Eve has always been one of my favorite days. There is always such an air of excitement about turning over the calendar.  The day is filled with anticipation and possibilities.  While it's mostly symbolic, it seems the whole world gets...

Willing To Suffer Through

Willing To Suffer Through

Just because people give advice a lot does not make it good advice.  We have that habit.  If something sounds good, then we parrot it.  Then after more and more people say it, over time, we think it’s true.  It doesn’t make it so. For example, we have heard for years...
