SUMMER’S CALLING…

OK, I’ll admit it. This year Spring Fever hit me hard. The picture above is just an example of what was right outside my window, beckoning me. I’m recovering, and now that my raging case of spring fever is subsiding, I’m looking at my world differently. This period of bowing to my whims and whatnots…

YOU CAN’T FINISH WHAT YOU DON’T START

Many of us have things in our lives right now that we are dragging our heels on – for whatever reason. You know, those should’s, need to’s, chores, tolerations and more that are cluttering the to-do list. Often they are things that are molehills we build into mountains. Things that, if we just did them,…

BEGIN WHERE YOU ARE

Happy New Year! We’re a couple of weeks in – how’s it going so far? Did you burst out of the gate, filled with possibilities and enthusiasm – ready to begin? Or was is a different experience for you altogether? Mind you, there is no “right” way to begin the year, and every year is…

CHOOSE!

Not choosing is a choice. And choice is the first step to commitment. Want to be committed to your dreams, your goals, your vision? It all starts with choice. Truth is, sometimes it’s hard to choose. Remember back when you were a kid, and you were making an early buying decision? It felt really important,…

SEPTEMBER – AND IT’S TIME

How did it get to be mid-September already? It’s the beginning of a new season, of course, and so much more. The leaves are almost beginning to change colors, and, despite the fact that it is still 90 degrees in Sacramento (where I live) there is a change in the air. There is a…

Do What You Love, So You Can Love What You Do

Get a life. Get a hobby. All work and no play … You love your work, to the point it doesn’t feel like work. but let’s face it – it is. It’s important to take a break and schedule in some leisure time. Some time away from your work, so you can get back to…

Deadlines… Make nice with them, and make them yours.

Tick tock. Tick tock. Tick tock… The time for you to deliver your work is looming, and there you sit … staring at a blank computer screen. Or, if you are brutally honest, avoiding even sitting down at the computer altogether. Procrastinating. Being busy with business, all to avoid the inevitable. Why? The ideas you’re…

No Means NO, I don’t want all your Uninvited Emails!

by Fredi Baker, MCC No Means NO! We’ve all had it happen, most likely more often than we want. The email bombardment from someone or something we didn’t give permission to. This week alone, I have unsubscribed from almost 10 unsolicited, unwanted email lists. Ones I never signed up for. Ones I keep trying to…

What are YOU holding on to?

Today I’d like to tell you the story of the man who confused being extremely busy with being productive and having a rich, fulfilling life. Why am I telling you this? As entrepreneurs, it can be all-too-easy to become so focused on the prize that we loose sight of what really matters. As coaches, we…

“Starting Small” beats “Not at All”

Ugh … Stuck! You know there is a goal, task, challenge that you must do, but for some reason, it just isn’t getting done. No matter how much you want to, you aren’t taking action. It just sits there, lurking. Sound familiar? Don’t know about you, but this happens to me from time to time. Take…
