Gear Up for Fall

It’s the time of year we start thinking of school days. Fall is just around the corner, and school supplies are on store shelves. And that can lead us to think about our own education and learning, and how that can serve us in our career of choice. It can also trigger anxiety when we think of how much we need to learn, especially if we want to change what we do. This newsletter will help you manage that anxiety with some practical steps to take. (By now, you know I’m all about taking action to get unstuck.) Try some of these ideas to find out what kind of knowledge and experience you really need.

While we’re on the subject of education, I’m excited to offer some new workshops in and around Chicago in September and October (click here for details). I’d love to see you there.

Ah, the Irony!

”Write what you know,” is what the experts say.

This issue is about the importance of creating a plan. And the issue is a few weeks late, because I didn’t have a plan. (Ah, the irony.) (more…)

Week 5 of Enjoying and Appreciating Life As It Is

December 18, 2008

This week’s tip is a quick one.  Take 10 minutes and spend it petting or playing with your cat or dog.  I’m a huge fan of this form of “fur therapy” in cold winter months and in stressful times.  Nothing compares to the love and affection of a pet.  If you don’t have pets – visit a shelter and spend a few minutes with the animals there!   Shelters love visitors, even if you can’t take someone home.

Week 3 of Enjoying and Appreciating Life As It Is

December 5, 2008

Here’s something you can do at any family gathering or holiday party you attend this year.  Or you can do it on the phone calls we all make this time of year to check in or catch up with family and friends. It costs you nothing and can be worked in any time you are having conversation (or perhaps struggling to have conversation).

Ask folks what their favorite holiday memory is – the one they most enjoy.  And listen, really listen to their story. Take pleasure in their pleasure. You can do this with family, friends, even acquaintances or strangers.  Sharing memories is a nice way to enjoy your life, while helping others enjoy theirs.

Stay tuned for the next issue of the Coach for a Better Life Newsletter – which is published Monday!

Week 2 of Enjoying and Appreciating Life As It Is

December 2, 2008

Thanksgiving is behind us here in the US.  And the holiday shopping frenzy is ramping up.  It can be easy to forget what giving really is.  It can also be easy to think we have too little to offer.  So here’s this week’s suggestion.

Collect your loose change for 1 week – and give it to the cause of your choosing. (more…)
