The Myth of Priorities

Today I met with my MasterMind group partner, and we started out our meeting by holding each other accountable for what we’d said we’d do the previous week. “Did you announce your Defining Moment Webinar class?” she asked. “Yes, I did!” I said, and sent her the link. You can see for yourself; I’m pretty […]

Drama vs. Theatrics

(S)He causes so much drama… – Anonymous It’s a common enough saying, usually with negative connotations. As I mentioned in a recent post I’ve never been a big fan of it, mainly because what seems to be “drama” for one person is “life” for another.

The Many Flavors of FOMO

I occasionally feel that I might be using too much jargon here on the blog; it’s too easy to pick out the meme-of-the-day and write a post that is nothing but another in a long series of banal rehashings of each other’s content and Power Quotes. But FOMO – the Fear of Missing Out – […]

While I was at that retreat last weekend I had a conversation with the man who organizes it (we’ll call him Craig, for privacy’s sake). Craig has been doing this for a while – decades, perhaps – and so he knows a thing or two about organizing events. I was lucky to have a brief […]
