Are you already planning your New Year’s Resolutions? Have you decided that next year will be THE YEAR! Change is going to happen, it will stick!
We spend all Holiday Season hyping ourselves up for the big changes we are going to make. The new life we will create for ourselves. We cut ourselves slack in so many directions because when it is all over we will make the big changes. We will get our act in gear. Become the people we were always meant to be.
Then New Years rolls around, we try to take on way more than… Continue reading
Have you ever struggled with getting stuck in moving forward because you needed everything to be just right?
Maybe you stayed at a job too long? Are you sticking out a relationship because it will be too difficult financially to go it alone? Perhaps you haven’t started a project because you don’t know where to start or not sure what you need?
Often we find ourselves in a holding pattern waiting for perfection to strike before we take action. We freeze up in anticipation or fear of failing, doing something wrong, or looking silly. When we act like this,… Continue reading
How often do you take time for goal setting? Is it an annual thing? Perhaps you do it quarterly? Monthly, weekly, daily? Where do you fall in with your goals?
Some people, like me, LOVE setting, chasing after, and accomplishing goals. Others do not enjoy anything about goals. And then there is a whole host of people in between.

Goal setting can be fun, simple, and rewarding. However, it can also be… Continue reading

Often times in time tracking we tend to see patterns — good or bad — that need some addressing. The negative patterns we need to learn what creates them and how to break them.… Continue reading
As many of you have been following I am putting myself through my own time management process, and well, it is going a bit slowly because one of the most important things you need to do is track your time. I had tried multiple options for daily time tracking and came up short. Then I was gone for about 3 weeks, which always requires another week to get back into the swing of things. Alas! I believe I have figured out the way that works for me!
I have created a template for one day from 12-12 and printed it… Continue reading
Have you ever found yourself just stuck in that rut, constantly complaining, worrying, or wondering how you are ever going to get out of it? Unfortunately, it is very easy for us to get stuck in the downward spiral – focusing on the negative, and bringing even more of it into our lives.
We have all had one of THOSE days, or weeks, or even years, it can seen. This is part of the downward spiral. We can start the day off with being late, stub our toe, get stuck in traffic, have a terrible meeting at work, spill our… Continue reading

Have you ever sat back and looked at your life, and thought, ” How did I get here?” You had big dreams, massive goals, but somewhere along the way, things did not go as planned.

Do you have so much stuff in your home, that cozy is beginning to feel cramped? Are you overwhelmed by all of your stuff and just do not know where to start?
Often times we get into these situations because we are constantly bringing in new things to our home — even if they are just “new to us” it is still more stuff coming into the home that we probably do not have space for.
