Stop Beating Yourself Up Over Past Mistakes

Case of the Footloose Doll James Bingham 1958

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson […]

Recently I read that some of the recent research on sleep shows that we can bank extra sleep in preparation for a late night ahead but it takes our bodies two weeks to catch up. I find the blending of science and practicality fascinating in all kinds of ways. What really struck me the most […]

Swing Into a Life You Love

Swing Into a Life You Love

I have spent the bulk of this past week virtually unplugged.   I’ve also been in bed before 9:30 almost every night this week, had a long lunch with a good friend, and lingered over a glass of wine while listening to work stories from my partner and his colleagues.

Honoring You

Honoring You

I spent the first half of this week attending Christine Kane’s Uplevel Your Purpose retreat. It’s a three-and-a-half day conference of about two hundred people, all of whom were amazing. Just being around this much collective creative energy was awe inspiring. In the first two days, I had formulated half a dozen new goals, filled […]
