What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?
It’s today. What a day to explore! What will you find? When I was a kid growing up in Minnesota, I spent summers camping and riding bikes; fall jumping in piles of leaves; winters sledding and exploring mountains of snow; and the spring floating pieces of wood (mighty vessels!) down roaring streams in streets as […]
You Call THAT Freedom?
Guess what? Freedom is available to you, today, wherever you are. Have you ever caught yourself waiting? Waiting for some free time to read that book you’ve been holding on to? Waiting to call that friend you’ve been wanting badly to reconnect with? Waiting for the perfect time to start the project that is your […]
Surround yourself with support today! You don’t have to do the heavy lifting alone. I returned recently from a weekend in the Bay Area, celebrating my dad’s birthday.

In one of his recorded talks, Reggie discusses how there are no mistakes on our path. There is only perfection. This is […]
What’s One Thing You Can Do Today To Feel More Free?
Don’t wait. Today is the very best day, now is the very best moment, to chill out and breathe. Talking with friends this week, I realized that many of us are waiting. We’re waiting for some other day to give ourselves a break. We’re waiting until our next vacation to really let our hair down […]
How To Know If You Work Too Much
If you were own boss, how many hours would you choose to work? My message today is simple: Stop working so hard. Treat yourself with the gentleness you reserve for a small child (you wouldn’t yell at a 3-year-old because they don’t know algebra, would you?) Take ample breaks. Leave your work at work. Tap […]
7 Steps To Shake Off Work Stress
Do you suffer from work stress? Take these steps to make today and the rest of the week even better. Work stress can be a drag. Especially when it continues day-in, day-out, right? We’re not alone in thinking so either. In a recent Gallup poll, 80% of those polled reported some form of workplace stress. […]
How To Relax Into The Rightness, Right Now
Let your guard down today, relax your defenses. Don’t fret, the peace abounds. After having a dull headache for a few days this past week, I had to admit that I was tense. I felt tightness in my shoulders and neck, and even my jaw one day. This, despite my daily meditation practice. Why the […]
