The Year of a Mindful Career: Visualization

Those who recently attended my program on productivity heard me relay my experience with visualization. While I truly believe it’s a powerful tool for career, life and health success, we too often limit our visualization because it seems like wasted daydreaming. So wrong. Experts know this is the key to success. Millionaires and billionaires, like […]

The Year of a Mindful Career: Flow

As a certified yoga practitioner (RYT), I understand the importance of flow. If we don’t invite our bodies (and minds) to flow freely and in new ways, we often become stuck.

I’m an early bird. I arrive early for appointments and get anxious when I’m late. While I’ve learned to accept tardiness in others (family habits), I still get annoyed when people miss meetings, appointments or engagements because of poor planning. Oh, yes, I know I’m far from perfect. I’ve made plenty of mistakes in this […]

The Year of a Mindful Career: Be Happy

I want to be happy. Don’t you? I wonder why we often do things to make ourselves, or others, unhappy. Sure, we don’t intend to (most of the time), but imagine if all of our intents were to be happy and make others happy? What do we need to do inside to change our genetic […]

The Year of a Mindful Career: Commit to Quit

What bad habits would you like to shed? I’ve got plenty and they are tough to quit. So why can’t I? Why can’t you? What if we worked as a team to commit to quit these bad behaviors, be it tardiness, rudeness, indulgence or spitefulness? Then again, how do we know that we have bad […]
