reduce stress with planning

When it comes to challenges, everyone has their own. Yet, I see a common thread running through the lives of clients, friends, and family members alike: an overwhelming task list with not enough time to accomplish it. All the pressure to accomplish more, constantly being tethered to their email, and feeling as if they are […]

I love having a plan for my career and my life: it’s part of my DNA. It’s how I’m wired and becomes clear no matter what kind of personality tests I take (According to the Meyers-Briggs test, I’m an ENTJ. )  Calendars, spreadsheets, and dinner reservations make me one happy woman.

By nature, I’m a planner. It became obvious during my elementary school years when I plotted what to wear and created lists of books I’d be reading that year (and in what order). In high school, I always knew what I’d be wearing a week or more in advance and my college schedule was so […]

Create a Life You Love by Trusting Your Gut

The Lady Was Insulted by Mike Ludlow

I’ll confess this up front:  I am a logical creature. In fact, I realized that the need for order and reason was a core part of who I am when I was in the 2nd grade devouring every Nancy Drew Logic Puzzle Book they made. Let me tell you, baby, to this day, I work […]
